Subject: RE: Glasgow police song
THE COPPERS' SONG
(Hamish Imlach)
As taken from the youtube video

It wis doon in auld Invertotty
The gestapo were oot oan the beat
Looking for murder and arson
And drunks as they stoat through the street

Now two of the chief constbules agents
Had notebooks quite full of names
Forty men, three wumin and a dug
Fur pissin up closes and lanes

It was 12 oclock when they found it,
Lying there just like a log,
A badly bashed aboot body,
Tyre marks scorched up its physog.

they went through the usual procedure,
Kicked it to be sure it was dead,
Then they went through its pockets and shared oot its cash,
Smoked all its fags while it bled,

Then they lifted up his body
Wan at his head and his feet
Carried it up to an alleyway
And dumped it on another mans beat.

It was four oclock when they refoundit
Propped up in an old Chip Shop door,
It was naked by noo wi' a sign roon its neck,
"Not Wanted on Beats 3 or 4".
