No Crime, No Law [Song]

NO CRIME, NO LAW
By Lord Commander

The government of every country
Should pay a criminal a big salary
And when they commit a crime,
The law shouldn't give them any long time
The police should be glad when one twist a jaw
Lock a neck, buss a face, or break open a store
They should be merry when somebody violate the law
Because that is what the government is paying them for.  

Chorus:
For if somebody don't buss somebody face
How the police man going to make a case?
And if somebody don't dig out somebody eye
The magistrate wouldn't have nobody to try
And if somebody don't kill somebody dead
All the judges got to beg their bread
So when somebody cut off somebody head
Instead of hanging, they should pay them money instead!

A thief give the whole force a promotion
From a police to a Commissioner
And is the Commissioner that living in the big mansion
And the man who promote him down Carrera
And if somebody don't crack somebody skull plate
They wouldn't have no jail, courthouse or magistrate
Still, when a man cut open somebody belly
Is custody and the cat o' nine tails for he.  

Chorus:
And if somebody don't buss somebody face
How the police man going to make a case?
And if somebody don't dig out somebody eye
The magistrate wouldn't have nobody to try
And if somebody don't kill somebody dead
All the judges got to beg their bread
So when somebody cut off somebody head
Instead of hanging, they should pay them money instead!

If a man don't lick out a woman teeth
Or she don't part he part face with a poui
Or saw off one of he hand with a saw
What the government going to pay men of the law for?
Because you kick me and I break your ankle
Men of the law becoming honourable
And still when you do them things
They send you straight in jail
And from the time they hold you, is without no bail  

Chorus:
And if somebody don't buss somebody face
How the police man going to make a case?
And if somebody don't dig out somebody eye
The magistrate wouldn't have nobody to try
And if somebody don't kill somebody dead
All the judges got to beg their bread
So when somebody cut off somebody head
Instead of hanging, they should pay them money instead!

Don't doubt me, is true, on the criminal
Men of the law becoming social
And living of high society
And associating with big company
A lawyer should kiss a criminal anyway
For is off of them they making their money everyday
You know this calypso is true, some of them may vex
But the fall of one is rising of the next.  

Chorus:
For if somebody don't buss somebody face
How the police man going to get a case?
And if somebody don't dig out somebody eye
The magistrate wouldn't have nobody to try
And if somebody don't kill somebody dead
All the judges got to beg their bread
So when a man kill, instead of swinging he head
They should make him Governor General instead!

A Note From The Gull

Thank you, Lord Commander.

"Patria est communis omnium parens" - Our native land is the common parent of us all. Keep it beautiful, make it even more so.

Blessed is all of creation
Blessed be my beautiful people
Blessed be the day of our awakening
Blessed is my country
Blessed are her patient hills.

Mweh ka allay!
