Subject: RE: Law Officers in Songs &Children's Rhymes
Here's a challenge to Mudcat members and guests: Name a folk song or any other song that mentions a female police officer

Hows about this one, as sung by a Mudcatter with the handle of Lady Policeman:

I'm a lady policeman, ever so ladylike
Ever so ladylike, ta-ra-ra.
When I draw my truncheon, nobody gets the spike,
Ever so ladylike, ta-ra-ra.
Every night at ten,
I go on my beat
All the naughty men
Go "tweet, tweet, tweet"
I'm a lady policeman, ever so ladylike
Ever so ladylike, ta-ra-ra.

That's the chorus: there are two or possibly three verses, but I can't remember them.
