  • I was listening to the music on the radio
    I had a feeling that something's not right
    The music was loud, we could still hear the crowd
    From the gig that we played that night

    We pulled into a motorway restaurant
    Stopped awhile, fooled around
    But I still had a feeling that something's not right
    'Cause we're standing in a whole in the ground

    Stop, get out
    We are the strong arm of the law
    Stop, get out
    We are the strong arm of the law

    Into the night came a blue flashing light
    A blast from the siren to make sure
    But it came to a stop behind the motorway cop
    Who'd been tailing us for more than an hour

    He pulled us out of the car on the side of the road
    He questioned us one at a time
    Where is the gear that we know that you use
    We said the only speed we use is on cars

    You should've seen the stupid smirk drop from his face
    It was a negative exercise
    The way that we dress and the things that we do
    They thought it was an easy bust Writer/s: PETERY ROONEY BYFORD, STEPHEN DAWSON, PETER FRANCIS GILL, GRAHAM OLIVER, PAUL QUINN
