It's Lucy in the sky and all kinds of apple pie
She giggle at the screen 'cos 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 workin' for the drug squad
Julie's been workin' 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, high, high
(Hi, man)
But there's someone lookin' down from that mountain side

'Cos Julie's been workin' for the drug squad
'Cos Julie's been workin' for the drug squandering drum roll

Ten years for you, nineteen for you
And you can get out in twenty-five
That is if you're still alive
Oh, alive
Oh yeah, alive
Oh, alive oh

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, 'til the cells were all full

'Cos Julie's been workin' for the drug squad
Julie's been workin' for the drug squad

They put him in a cell, they said "You wait here"
And you got the time to count all of your hair
You got fifteen years, somebody long time
You could have been a physicist
But now your name is on the mailbag list

Julie's been workin' for the Drug Squad
Julie's been workin' for the Drug Squad
Gumbo

Ten years for you, nineteen for you
And you can get out in twenty-five
That is if you're still, alive
Oh, alive
You're still
I said, "You're still"
