Virulent


Courtie cops
Courtie cops, courtie cops cops courts court.
Bad boy
Bad boy
Howling of cop cars howling through the night.
Courtie cops
Courtie cops, courtie cops cops court courts.
Bad boy
Bad boy
Can’t you see Australia is the best in the *OECD
With unemployment at only 5.8%
Why are you such a bad boy?
With such a bright future.
Can’t you see everybody in Australia is working? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
Bang
Bang
Bang
Bang
Bang
Gunfi re in a suburban Sydney street does it matter where? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
It’s in every suburb every night.
And the howling of cop cars and ambulances to a house near you.
It’s such a bright future best in the OECD.
If you don’t believe me poke your head out of your window if you dare.
Bang.
Bang.
Bang.
Courtie cops.
Courtie cops, courtie courtie cop cops
Bad boy.
Bad boy
This is the real Australia and it’s future
There is no tomorrows only more of.
Courtie cops
Courtie cops
Cops, cops, cops and the never ending courts
Revolving doors of recidivism into the Twilight Zone.
Aren’t we just the best in the OECD? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
This is your future.
Bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang
Switch on your T.V. news if you don’s believe me.
