Tell The Cops I Said Hello
by Steve Key ©2010

Come by around ten
Mom should be in bed by then
We'll watch a DVD
And I'll make you some green jasmine tea
Someday we'll have our own place
And you won't have to go

Bye babe -- I love ya
Drive safe -- I'll call ya
Go slow -- and tell the cops I said hello

I'm thinking about you
As you take the turn and pass the barbeque
They're drinking, having fun
Do you ever think of stopping in for one?
The cops wait in shadows
For the drinkers heading home

Bye babe -- I love ya
Drive safe -- I'll call ya
Go slow -- and tell the cops I said hello

They pulled me over one night
The cop came with his flashlight
Said "Ma'am, have you been drinking?"
I said it's been twenty-eight years
Since I had my last beer
Then he said my right brake light wasn't blinking

Bye babe -- I love ya
Drive safe -- I'll call ya
Go slow -- and tell the cops I said hello
