Reggae masterpiece POLICE AND THIEVES

This is one amazing piece of creation by Lee "Scratch" Perry, with Junior Murvin singing from Scratch's Black Ark circa 1976. I nearly lost my ever-lovin' mind the first time I heard it, about a year ago!
I hope you can dig it half so much.



POLICE & THIEVES
(Junior Murvin-Lee Perry)

Police and thieves in the street (oh yeah)
Fighting the nation with their guns and ammunition
Police and thieves in the street (oh yeah)
Scaring the nation with their guns and ammunition
From Genesis to Revelation yeah
And next generation will be hear me
All the crimes committed day by day
No one try to stop it in any way
All the peacemakers turn war officers
Hear what I say
Hehehehehehehey
Police and thieves in the street (oh yeah)
Fighting the nation with their guns and ammunition
Police and thieves in the street (oh yeah)
Scaring the nation with their guns and ammunition
Oh yeah
All the crimes committed day by day
No one try to stop it in any way
All the peacemakers turn war officers
Hear what I say
He-he-he-he-he-he-hey
Police and thieves in the street (oh yeah)
Fighting the nation with their guns and ammunition
Police and thieves in the street (oh yeah)
Scaring the nation with their guns and ammunition
Police and thieves
Police...
