Riot Van lyrics

Up rolled the riot van
And sparked excitement in the boys
But the policemen look annoyed
Perhaps these are ones they should avoid

We got a chase last night
From men with truncheons dressed in hats
We didn't do that much wrong
Still ran away though for the laugh
Just for the laugh.

And please just stop talking
'cause they won't find us if you do
Oh those silly boys in blue
Well they won't catch me and you

Have you been drinking son?
You don't look old enough to me
I'm sorry officer
Is there a certain age you're supposed to be?
'cause nobody told me

Up rolled the riot van
And these lads just wind the coppers up
Ask why they don't catch proper crooks
Get their address and their name's took
But they couldn't care less

Thrown in the riot van
And all the coppers kicked him in
And there was no way he could win
Just had to take it on the chin

    Hola, me gustan los patos, que ayer conoci, comiendo cerezas, hoy te aborreci, me chupan la pija, los petes me la dan a mi! Oh cuando gasten los baits en un beit byte les va a gustar mucho saborear la grazza, lerdos, me voy a manyar unos gnoccis, ojala los limpien a todos, apocalipsis now, no los 70's, no a Fiebre de sabado por la noche, No a Grease, NO, OASIS, OASIS, OASIS, OASI'

    This is because there are two versions about this song :)

    There are some mistakes on the lyrics, for example:

    "“I’m sorry officer is there a certain age you’re supposed to be?… nobody told me�?"

    It should be:

    "I'm Sorry officer is there a certain age you're supposed to be? 'cause nobody told me."

    We got thrown in a riot van
    And the coppers kicked him in
    And there was no way he could win
    Just had to take it on the chin

    Smoked a bong a last night
    And stole somebody's telephone
    He thinks it's all alright
    But they've left him on his own, on his own

    But baby stop calling
    Over and over yeah
    And give me some funny cigarettes
    And do what they told you, yeah

    Pinched a car with one headlight
    And lost control the passengers were screaming
    Made him shut his eyes reet tight
    And think of you, and hope that he was dreaming

    Then up rolled the riot van
    And called the fire brigade
    But it was already too late
    And there was no arrests to make
    Ohhhhh!

    But baby stop calling
    Over and over yeah
    And give me some funny cigarettes
    And do what they told you, yeah

    "Riot Van" cloaks its exploration of the interaction between police and local youth in observations of humorously absurd conversation like "'Have you been drinking son, you don’t look old enough to me' 'I’m sorry officer is there a certain age you’re supposed to be?… nobody told me'".
