Well, first of all I couldn't even see his face
I couldn't see his face
He was holding a gun in his hand

Umm, I was thinking
This is a dangerous place
This is a dangerous place

I said, "I'm nervous as hell from this stuff
I thought those guys were going to kill me for sure
They ganged up on me like that"

"I couldn't believe it, look, I'm still shakin', weird
They're out in the streets like that
It's a dangerous place
It's a dangerous place"

So, suddenly, these two guys appear in front of me
They stopped, real aggressive
Start at me, you know
"What's that?", "What's that on that tape?"
"What do you got there?", I said, "Huh?"

They said, "What are you talking into that for?"
I said, "It's just a tape, you know"
"Well, play it for me", I said, "Oh no"
I put it off as long as I could

And finally they turned it on, you know
They grabbed it from me
Took it away from me, turned it on

And it said, "He held a gun in his hand
This is a dangerous place"
They said, "What dangerous place?
What gun? You're a policeman"

And the deeper I talked, the worse I got into it
I talked, I told him, I said, "Look man, I'm not talkin'"
It went on forever, anyway, I finally unbuttoned my shirt
And said, "Look, look, I'm in this band, you know"

"I'm in this band you know
And we're makin' a recording, you know
It's about New York City, it's about crime in the streets"
The explanation was going nowhere

But finally, they just kinda let me go, I don't know why
So I walk around the corner
And I'm like shakin' like a leaf
And I thought, "This is a dangerous place"

Who should appear but two policeman
