                Dmaj7   C#m
Up rolled the riot van
    Bm                        Dmaj7 C#m Bm
And sparked excitment in the boys
                          Dmaj7 C#m Bm
But the policemen look annoyed
                                     Dmaj7 C#m Bm
Perhaps these are ones they should avoid

 A
  They got a chase last night
C#m                          Bm        E
  from men with truncheon's dressed in hats
A
  They didn’t do that much wrong,
C#m                              Bm
  still ran away though for the laugh,
                E
  just for the laugh

“Please just stop talking
Because they won’t find us if you do
Oh those silly boys in blue
Well they won’t catch me and you”

“Have you been drinking son, you don’t look old enough to me”
“I’m sorry officer is there a certain age you’re supposed to be?…
 nobody told me”

Up rolled the riot van
And these lads just wind the coppers up
Ask why they don’t catch proper crooks
Get their address and their name’s took
But they couldn’t care less

[Solo]

He got thrown in the riot van
And all the coppers kicked him in
And there was no way he could win
Just had to take it on the chin
