Julie's Been Working for the Drug Squad

This song is by The Clash and appears on the album Give 'Em Enough Rope (1978) and on the box set Clash on Broadway (1991).

It's Lucy in the sky and all kinds of apple pie
She giggles at the screen cause it looks so green
There's carpets on the pavement and feathers in her eye
But sooner or later, her new friends will realize

That Julie's been working for the Drug Squad
Julie's been working for the Drug Squad

She can't even look you in the eye

Well it seemed like a dream, too good to be true
Stash it in the bank while the tablets grow high
In their millions and everybody's high
But there's someone looking down from that mountain side

Cause Julie's been working for the Drug Squad
Cause Julie's been working for the Drug Squad

Ten years for you
Nineteen for you
And you can get out in twenty-five
That is if you're still alive

And then there came the night of the greatest ever raid
They arrested every drug that had ever been made
They took eighty-two laws through eighty-two doors
And they didn't halt the pull 'till the cells were all full

Cos Julie's been working for the Drug Squad
Julie's been working for the Drug Squad

They put him in a cell, they said you wait here
You got the time to count all of your hair
You got fifteen years, that's a mighty long time
You could have been a physicist but now your name is on the mailbag list

Julie's been working for the Drug Squad
Julie's been working for the Drug Squad

Ten years for you
Nineteen for you
And you can get out in twenty-five
That is if you're still alive
