Police Oppression

Album: Who Killed Liddle? (1978)
  • I just can't take much more of this oppression
    I'm going out of my head and its getting that impression
    I'm gonna go out for a walk
    I'm gonna sit down and have talk
    There asking me how, and they're asking me why, have you ever seen grown men cry?

    Police police police oppression, police police police oppression

    Really find it hard even walking round the streets
    Hey i know you son ill knock you off you're feet
    Same number a million times before,
    Shut you're mouth son or ill knock you on the floor

    Police police police oppression, police police police oppression

    I just can't take much more of this oppression
    I'm going out of my head and its getting that impression
    I'm gunna go out for a walk
    I'm gunna sit down and have talk
    There asking me how, and they're asking me why, have you ever seen grown men cry?

    Police police oppression police police oppression

    Lying in the cells is really no fun
    Cutting the bricks learning some tricks
    Ask me no questions and I'll tell you no lies
    Is being different really a crime?

    Police police police oppression
    Police police police oppression
    Police police police police police
