Lyrics

  • WELL THERE’S A BODY IN THE BAY
  • THE COPS ARE TAKING IT AWAY
  • THEY SAID THIS CASE WAS CLOSED
  • IT ONLY SHOWS THAT YOU’LL NEVER KNOW
  • ‘CAUSE WHO THEY GOING TO GET
  • WHEN THE TROUBLE’S GOT TO STOP
  • HERE’S MY CARD
  • I’M THE CONTINENTAL OP
  • JANE DOE IN THE BAY
  • NOW THAT’S EXHIBIT ‘A’
  • BLOODSTAINS ON THE DRESS
  • OF THE MILLIONAIRESS
  • BUT I SAW YOU LEAVING TOWN
  • I’M GONNA HAVE TO TRACK YOU DOWN
  • YOU’VE SLIPPED THROUGH THE WEB
  • AND YOU MIGHT HAVE DODGED THE FEDS
  • BUT WHO ARE THEY GOING TO GET
  • WHEN YOU’VE OUTFOXED THE COPS
  • HERE’S MY NUMBER
  • I’M THE CONTINENTAL OP
  • I’M THE CONTINENTAL OP
  • CALL THE AGENCY, WE NEVER CLOSE
  • FIRST CONSULTATION IS FREE
  • CHECK MY REPUTATION, CHECK MY POSE
  • BUT FIRST YOU OUGHT TO CHECK MY FEE
  • THERE’S A MENACE ON THE STREETS
  • OFFERING INFANTS’ SWEETS
  • DON’T GIVE THIS MAN A RIDE
  • LOCK YOUR CAR FROM THE INSIDE
  • HE’S SUSPECT NUMBER ONE
  • BUT I GUESS HIS RACE IS RUN
  • HE LEFT A SET OF PRINTS
  • HE’S NOT AS SMART AS HE THINKS
  • WHO THEY GONNA GET
  • WHEN YOU’VE OUTFOXED THE COPS
  • HERE’S MY CARD
  • I’M THE CONTINENTAL OP
  • YEAH, WHO THEY GOING TO GET
  • WHEN YOU’VE OUTFOXED THE COPS
  • HERE’S MY BADGE
  • I’M THE CONTINENTAL OP
