that’s what you get

you dirty copper

little jimmy cagney said

there are thirteen rounds in the hopper

then the cops made jimmy dead

copper penny for your thoughts

copper jacket full of lead

they wanted little jimmy cagney dead

thats what you get you dirty copper

you get thirteen rounds in the hopper

mama mama how he yelled

told them coppers he could fly 

from the gasoline tank when he got nailed

yelling you dirty rats

it is one big lie

the crowd yelled back

fly jimmy fly

all the excitement everybody got high

mama mama how he yelled from the gasoline tank

when he got nailed

where have you gone my love

now that i have found my way

where have you gone my love

now that I am old and gray

bells are ringing 

choirs are singing 

step out in the field 

if you are looking for trouble

man you can find it 

but come out swinging 

out in the field the farmers burning the stubble

out in the field people are living in the rubble

but only come out

if you are looking for trouble

bells are ringing

choirs are singing

you get what you want

but come out swinging 

where have you gone my love

now that i have found my way

where have you gone my love

now that I am old and gray

thats what you

little jimmy cagney said

then the cops made jimmy dead

copper penny for your thoughts

copper jacket full of lead

they wanted little jimmy cagney dead

that’s what you get 

you dirty copper 

you get 13 rounds in the hopper

mama mama how he yelled

told them coppers 

you go to hell

 where have you gone my love

now that i have found my way

where have you gone my love

now that I am old and gray
