OVER THE WALL WE GO (David Bowie) David Bowie & The Buzz - 1966 Oscar (Lead Vocal: Paul Nicholas) - 1967 As recorded by DAVID BOWIE: Over the wall we go All coppers are nanas Over the wall we go Leave 'em a note sayin' "Wish you was 'ere" I know the best ways to break out of 'ere I helped a young laddie called Ivan I bundled him over the wall last night Then he climbed back and he grabbed me tight He uttered some words that I can't say to you 'Cause he remembered that he was a screw, hah Over the wall we go All coppers are nanas Over the wall we go Leave 'em a note wishin' "Happy New Year" My name it is Henry, some say I'm thick I've spent half me life in and out of nick Me mum sends me presents to keep me in style Soggy old cakes and 'undreds of files Yeah, I sussed all them files, I'm a clever young man Now I'm just stupid with manicured hands Over the wall we go All coppers are nanas Over the wall we go Nobody's left and the screws are in tears SPOKEN: "Double 3, 427" "Here, sir" "Double 3, 428" "Here, sir" "Double 3, 429, Double 3, 429, where is he?" "He went out for a cup o' tea at the local football match, sir" "Oh, oh, well he might have invited me" Over the wall we go All coppers are nanas Over the wall we go Nobody's left and the screws are in tears We tried diggin' tunnels but gave up the ghost Just past the canteen, ten yards at the most Our limbs was aching, we felt pretty pooped Our clothes they was tatty, our hallows did droop We crawled back to safety, our hearts filled with gloom 'Cause we'd dug ourselves through to the smallest room Over the wall we go All coppers are nanas Over the wall we go Leave 'em a note wishin' "Happy New Year" SPOKEN: [Knock, knock, knock] "Hello, who is it?" "Double 3, 429, guv" "Oh, hang on a minute Hello Sonny Jim, been wondering where you were Have you had a nice Christmas?" ******************** As recorded by OSCAR: (Over the wall we go) (All coppers are nanas) (Over the wall we go) (Leave 'em a note sayin' "Happy New Year") I know the best ways to break out of here I helped a young laddie called Ivan I bundled him over the wall last night Then he climbed back and he grabbed me tight He uttered some words that I can't say to you 'Cause he remembered that he was a screw (Over the wall we go) (All coppers are nanas) (Over the wall we go) (Leave 'em a note sayin' "Happy New Year") My name is Henry, now some say I'm thick I've spent half me life in and out o' the nick Me mum sends me presents to keep me in style Soggy old cakes and hundreds of files Yeah, I sussed all them files, I'm a clever young man Now I look stupid with manicured hands (Over the wall we go) (All coppers are nanas) (Over the wall we go) (Leave 'em a note sayin' "Happy New Year") SPOKEN: "Double 3, 421" "Yus" "Double 3, 422" "Present" "Double 3, 423 "Oi'm here!"

Another course and we're out" (Over the wall we go) (All coppers are nanas) (Over the wall we go) (Leave 'em a note sayin' "Happy New Year") My name is Reggie, the scandalous one I got seven years, so I gossip my time I get all the titbits and pieces of news I'm a privilaged con and my uniform's blue The new lads will ask me if I am a screw I tell 'em, "Ooh, cheekie, not even for you" (Over the wall we go) (All coppers are nanas) (Over the wall we go) (Leave 'em a note sayin' "Happy New Year") (Over the wall we go) (All coppers are nanas) (Over the wall we go) (Leave 'em a note sayin' "Happy New Year") (Over the wall we go) (All coppers are nanas) (Over the wall we go) (Leave 'em a note sayin' "Happy New Year") (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2016)
