Jazz Police

©Leonard Cohen and Jeff Fisher, released on I'm Your Man (1988)

.

Can you tell me why the bells are ringing?

Nothing's happened in a million years

I've been sitting here since Wednesday morning

Wednesday morning can't believe my ears

.

Jazz police are looking through my folders

Jazz police are talking to my niece

Jazz police have got their final orders

Jazzer, drop your axe, it's Jazz police!

.

Jesus taken serious by the many

Jesus taken joyous by a few

Jazz police are paid by J.P. Getty

Jazzers paid by J. Paul Getty II

.

Jazz police I hear you calling

Jazz police I feel so blue

Jazz police I think I'm falling,

I'm falling for you

.

Wild as any freedom loving racist

I applaud the actions of the chief

Tell me now oh beautiful and spacious

Am I in trouble with the Jazz police?

.

Jazz police are looking through my folders ...

.

They will never understand our culture

They'll never understand the Jazz police

Jazz police are working for my mother

Blood is thicker margarine than grease

.

Let me be somebody I admire

Let me be that muscle down the street

Stick another turtle on the fire

Guys like me are mad for turtle meat

.

Jazz police I hear you calling

Jazz police I feel so blue

Jazz police I think I'm falling,

I'm falling for you
