Everyday he wakes up as his bare feet hit the floor
Grabs a cup of coffee straps his magnum on once more
Feeds the cat he lives with since his wife walked out the door
In nine years he'll retire with a pension

Everyday he suffers 'cause he sees all kinds of pain
Sometimes feels helpless in a world that's gone insane
Then he wins a battle, it restores his faith again
It's only human kindness he is after

He is a policeman, you know
All the years and nothing to show
He is a policeman, you know

Every night he comes home with a six pack all alone
Feeds the cat he lives with he picks up the telephone
Needs to talk with someone but the only love he's known
Was lost forever, he is a policeman

He is a policeman, you know
All the years and nothing to show
He is a policeman, you know
All the years and nothing to show
Nothing to show

He is a policeman, you know
He is a policeman, you know
He is a policeman, you know
...
