"The Day That the Boys Came Down" (karaoke)

"The Day That the Boys Came Down" (sheet music)


They came down the backstreet, the dicks and the flatfeet

With dogs that had nosed his things back at Long Bay;

And they had a warrant; he was abhorrent;

The day that the boys came down to blow him away....

 

The neighbors were snoring or too busy scoring;

Time for the boys in blue to show crime doesn't pay;

They know what they're there for, what they get their foursquare for;

The day that the boys came down to blow him away....

 

And he was no fool, one of the old school;

He just broke the golden rule:

Topping a warder was right out of order;

The day that the boys came down to blow him away....

 

He's in bed with his missus; he gets up and pisses;

He knows that something's up; he twigs right away;

Just a flash of a torch out there on the back porch;

The day that the boys came down to blow him away....

 

He would never take chances with a woman he fancies;

So he writes a note to say every dog has its day;

Then he walks down the backstairs with his hands in the air;

The day that the boys came down to blow him away....

 

And he was no fool, one of the old school;

He just broke the golden rule;

And the first bullet slit him 'fore he knew what had hit him;

The day that the boys came down to blow him away….

 

The day that the boys came down to blow him away,

The day that the boys came down to blow him away....
