Hey Mr. Policeman, please don’t take my stuff
It cost me twenty dollar bill, and it probably ain’t enough
To get me through Election Day
Didn’t I hear you say
That it’s alright, it’s alright?

Wouldn’t even weigh a thing, it’s hardly worth your time
And my luck’s been bad, the telephone just kept my only dime
And there might be a burglary
Why don’t you just go and see
I’ll be alright, be alright

Hey Mr. Policeman, please don’t take my stuff
It cost me twenty dollar, and it probably ain’t enough
To get me through Election Day
Didn’t I hear you say
That it’s alright, it’s alright?
