No need to knock for you see, we're breaking down the door
These felons must be stopped and we shall wait no more
We're grammar police, now just lift your fingers from those keys
You'll not hurt our mother tongue, our ears will be appeased
How can you not know there from they're or even son from sun
But officer I've done nothing wrong I'm writing just for fun
A line of two of dreadful prose does not give you an excuse
We care not about your syntax but your grammar is abuse
OK copper you'll never get me to sing, for I ain't no soprano
Well we'll see, once you're in the tombs, OK now book him Dano
