Album: Dare! (1981)

  • My life - I'm a fool for you
    You who take no advice
    You who think evil doesn't exist
    Just because you deny it is true

    [Chorus: x2]
    You're lucky I care
    For fools like you
    You're lucky I'm there
    To stop people doing the things
    That you know they're dying to do

    You know I am no stranger
    I know rules are a bore
    But just to keep you from danger
    I am the law

    You know I am no stranger
    I know rules are a bore
    But just to keep you from danger
    I am the law

    A dog must bark
    So evil calls
    Both in the wild and
    Within these walls

    [Chorus]

    You know I am no stranger
    I know rules are a bore
    But just to keep you from danger
    I am the law

    You know I am no stranger
    I know rules are a bore
    But just to keep you from danger
    I am the law

    You know I am no stranger
    I know rules are a bore
    But just to keep you from danger
    I am the law

    You know I am no stranger
    I know rules are a bore
    But just to keep you from danger
    I am the law Writer/s: WRIGHT OAKEY
