Daloy Polizei

This song is by Geoff Berner and appears on the album Victory Party (2011).

Based on "In Ale Gasn" yiddish anarchist song.

I've played a lot of places and I'll play them all again.
Everywhere I go I hear the same old thing again.
Somebody dies in police custody,
Soon there are questions from the family.
At first the situation makes those lawmen look so filthy,
Then they investigate themselves and it turns out that they're not guilty.

Hey hey, Daloy Polizei
It means the same thing now as yesterday,
Out of your houses, into the streets
Everybody say "Fuck the police!"

Ian Bush's parents didn't know he was a killer,
When constable Kessler picked him up for an open can of Miller.
The video at the station house had somehow got erased
But the bull was there so we can know exactly what took place.
He said, the boy jumped on his back but the cop was quick instead,
He reached around and shot him...
Right in the back of the head.

Constable Kessler would not demonstrate just how this thing was done
If you think that it's impossible then the coroner's not alone, well

Hey hey, Daloy Polizei
It means the same thing now as yesterday,
Out of your houses, into the streets
Everybody say "Fuck the police!"

There must be something magic down in the holding cells
Because there's stuff that happens there that just don't happen nowhere else.
Healthy people dying from a sudden heart attack
And men who hang themselves with their hands tied behind their back.

There's lots of good and brave police, it must be true I guess.
Well at least it's brave to work with a murderer sipping coffee by your
Desk.

Hey hey, Daloy Polizei
It means the same thing now as yesterday,
Hey hey, Daloy Polizei
It means the same thing now as yesterday,
Out of your houses, into the streets
Everybody say "Fuck the police!"
