Rent-a-Cop

Original Artist: Ben Folds

I'm trawling food court for girls
Yeah, it's the best job in the world
They know they're safe with me
They love my little mustache;
They love a man in uniform

With my sunglasses they can't
See what I'm really looking at
And as they're walking by
I whisper through my donut:
"Hey, baby, baby. Light that ass on fire"

Yeah!

How long must this day go on?
I gotta stand here two more hours till I punch the clock
How long must this day go onnnnnnnn?

Woah-ah-oh-oh oh!

Yeah!

No, kid, they don't give me a gun
I don't get paid enough to run
So you can call me what you want
I'll be hanging at the checkout
Checkin' out your girlfriend
Figure out how she's gonna fit all of that butt into that underwear...

Yeah, yea-a-a-h!

Hey girl, if you can't recall
Where you parked your daddy's car
Then I could help you out
All alone in this
Great big mall

Woah-ah-oh-oh oh!

Yeah!

[Instrumental]

(Coming to get ya!)

How long must this day go on?
I gotta stand here two more hours till its Miller Time
How long must this day go onnnnnnn?

Woah-ah-oh-oh oh!

I'm trawling food court for girls

[Instrumental]

I whisper through my donut
I whisper through my donut
I whisper through my donut
Hey baby baby light that
Hey baby baby light that
Light that ass on fire
