Cop Song

Album: Urinetown (2001)

Songfacts®:

  • "Cop Song" appears in Act I of the scatologically named musical Urinetown with music by Mark Hollmann and lyrics by Hollmann and Greg Kotis. It is performed to a dance routine by Officers Lockstock, Barrel and a chorus of cops. As might be imagined, it is a comedy number, but those with refined senses of humour may not appreciate it, or the rest of the show. >>
