23rd June 1973


Rubber Bullets - 10 CC


I went to a party at the local county jail
All the cons were dancing and the band began to wail
But the guys were indiscrete
They were brawlin' in the street
At the local dance at the local county jail

Well the band were playing
and the booze began to flow
But the sound came over on the police car radio
Down at precinct 49
Having a tear-gas of a time
Sergeant Baker got a call from the governor of the county jail

Load up, load up, load up with Rubber Bullets
Load up, load up, load up with Rubber Bullets
I love to hear those convicts squeal
It's a shame these slugs ain't real
But we can't have dancin' at the local county pen

Sergeant Baker and his men made a beeline for the jail
and for miles around you could hear the sirens wail
There's a rumour goin' round death row
That a fuse is gonna blow
At the local hop at the local county jail
(What you gonna do about it, what you gonna do it)
(What you gonna do about it, what you gonna do it)

Sergeant Baker started talkin' with a bullhorn in his hand
He was cool, he was clear, he was always in command
He said "Blood will flow here, Padre. Padre you talk to your boys..."
"Trust in me - God will come to set you free..."

Well we don't understand why you called in the National Guard
When Uncle Sam is the one who belongs in the exercise yard
We all got balls and brains - but some's got balls and chains
At the local dance at the local county jail

Load up, load up, load up with Rubber Bullets
Load up, load up, load up with Rubber Bullets
Is it really such a crime for a guy to spend his time
At the local dance at the local county jail
At the local dance at the local county jail

Whatcha gonna do about it whatcha gonna do
Whatcha gonna do about it whatcha gonna do
