Pig in Blue

I knew a pig in blue
Who liked to tell us what to do
Parading the place, policing the place
And he did bad things few people knew

I knew a pig in blue
A corrupt old guard who lived in Baker’s Avenue
He love to take bribes
And he had so many wives
And these bad habits sticked like glue

I knew a pig in blue
Who became chief policeman and his power grew
He lied and lied and lied
Until the day he died
This man was a perfect example of black sheep
A rotten apple in a whole bunch
He was the agent of oppressive kings
And he could kick and punch

I knew a pig in blue
The greatest scoundrel
I ever knew
From armed robberies to racketeering
This man was very daring
He was the dirtiest watch I have ever seen
And burnt his victims with gasoline
A crooked policeman who failed to uphold the rule of law
In a corrupt system which failed to show him the door

I knew a pig in blue
The dirtiest thing I have ever seen
His skin was dark
And so was his heart
And from his attitude
He was very green

I knew a pig in blue
Who could betray anyone just for a few
As long as you have money
This pig will call you honey
But it didn’t mean he was faithful to you

I knew a pig in blue
He had a colossal intelligence crew
And every day he lied
About the people that he spied
And killed innocent as his drones flew

I knew a pig in blue
In fact these pigs were two
One was a director and
The other was a secretary
They commanded a large group of men
Including the military
The Secretary was a hot head
And a complete disaster
He would do things he would regret after
The Secretary wore thick glasses
Like an eccentric professor
He was the agent of evil kings and a wicked oppressor
The first was the servant of the second
And the second was a controller of many a man and weapon
In their endeavour to rule the world
These men met their doom
Because the Heavenly Father did not give them room

I knew a pig in blue
The most dubious man I have ever seen
When it comes to justice
You have to pay a price
And if the government increase taxes
The price of justice will rise

I knew a pig in blue
A criminal in a uniform of navy blue
He had crooked friends in high places
Who told him what to do
He didn’t represent the average policeman
But only stood for the few

I knew a pig in blue
Who told me not to bother myself going to court
Because from the judge to the witness and the prosecutor
They have all been bought
And the only criminals in this world are those who are caught

I knew a pig in blue
He used to live in our avenue
He slept with a pistol 
Under his pillow
And peeped a hundred times
Across his window
He feared for retaliation and revenge
And he met his death at the end
In the hands of a man who would avenge

I knew a pig in blue
Who promised to do everything I wanted him to do
Who masqueraded himself with a disguise
But from the greed in his eyes I knew
I knew that
That pig was you
