AN OFFICER OF THE LAW
Music: M. K. Jerome - Lyrics: Jack Scholl
Dennis Morgan (from "Tear Gas Squad"  )
I'm an officer of the law in Central Park -
You'll find me with the nursemaids there,
And confidentially I'm the answer to a nursemaid's prayer.
As I'm strolling along the park, they all remark
That I'm the guy they'd like to meet.
I'm quite a devil with the ladies - a nursemaid's treat.
It's the same with every pretty miss -
They know that I'm allergic to their beauty.
When they ask me if I'd like a kiss,
An officer must always do his duty.
If a lady should need my aid, don't be afraid,
You'll always find me standing by.
A lady's man who does the best he can -
An officer of the law am I.
