Billy Dalton staggered on the sidewalk someone said he stumbled and he fell
Six squad cars came screamin' to the rescue hauled old Billy Dalton off to jail
Cause the law is for protection of the people rules're rules and any fool can see
We don't need no tramps like Billy Dalton scaring decent folks like you and me no siree
Charlie Watson wandered like a stranger showin' he had no means of support
Policeman took a look at Charlie's pants cuffs hustled Charlie Watson off to court
Cause the law is for protection of the people rules're rules and any fool can see
We don't need no bums like Charlie Watson
Scaring decent folks like you and me no siree
Homer Lee was nothing but a hippie walking through this world without a care
Then one day six strapping brave policemen held down Homer Lee and cut his hair
Cause the law is for protection of the people rules're rules and any fool can see
We don't need no hairy headed hippie scaring decent folks like you and me no siree
So thank your lucky stars you've got protection walk the line and never mind the cost
And don't wonder who them lawmen were protecting
When they nailed the Saviour to the cross
Cause the law is for protection of the people rules're rules and any fool can see
We don't need no little sneaking prophets scaring decent folks like you and me no siree
