    Lyrics

    Zwei, drei, vier, one, two, three
    It's easy to see
    But it's not that I don't care, so
    'Cause I hear it all the time
    But they never let you know
    On the TV and the radio (Cha!)
    She was young, her heart was pure
    But every night is bright she got
    She said sugar is sweet
    She come a-rappin' to the beat
    Then I knew that she was hot

    She was singin'
    Don't turn around, wa-uh-oh (yeah-yeah)
    Der Kommissar's in town, wa-uh-oh
    You're in his eye and you'll know why
    The more you live, the faster you will die

    Alles klar, Herr Kommissar?

    She said, "Babe, you know
    I miss Jill and Joe
    And all my funky friends"
    But my street understanding
    Was just enough to know what she really meant
    And I got to thinking while she was talking
    That I know she told the story
    Of those special places that she goes
    A-when she rides with the others in the subway singin'

    Don't turn around, wa-uh-oh (yeah-yeah)
    Der Kommissar's in town, wa-uh-oh
    And if he talks to you and you don't know why
    You say your life is gonna make you die

    Alles klar, Herr Kommissar?

    (Cha, cha, cha, cha)
    (Cha, cha)
    (Cha, cha, cha, cha)
    (Cha, cha)

    Well, we meet Jill and Joe
    And brother Herr
    With the whole cool gang and oh
    They're rappin' here, they're rappin' there
    But she's climbin' on the wall
    It's a clear case, Herr Kommissar
    'Cause all the children know
    They're all slidin' down into the valley
    They're all slipping on the same snow

    Hear the children
    Don't turn around, wa-uh-oh (yeah-yeah)
    Der Kommissar's in town, wa-uh-oh
    He's got the power and you're so weak
    And your frustration will not let you speak
    La la la la la la

    Don't turn around, wa-uh-oh (yeah-yeah)
    Der Kommissar's in town, wa-uh-oh
    And if he talks to you, then you'll know why
    The more you live, the faster you will die

    Don't turn around, wa-uh-oh (yeah-yeah)
    Der Kommissar's in town, wa-uh-oh
    Don't turn around, wa-uh-oh (yeah-yeah)
    Der Kommissar's in town, wa-uh-oh
    (Alles klar, Herr Kommissar?)
    Don't turn around, wa-uh-oh (yeah-yeah)
    Der Kommissar's in town, wa-uh-oh
    Don't turn around, wa-uh-oh (yeah-yeah)
    Der Kommissar's in town, wa-uh-oh
    Don't turn around, wa-uh-oh (yeah-yeah)
    Der Kommissar's in town, wa-uh-oh
    Don't turn around, wa-uh-oh

      PinkFloyd, how can you say this is their "best song"? Have you actually heard any of their other songs? Most people haven't

      This has been one of my favorite songs, ever since I was a kid...I remember hearing it on the 80s radio station all the time.

      I love this song to this day...its so catchy and fun to sing along to. Its definitely up there in my favorites from the 80s.

      I love this song. I heard it on Sirius and recognized it from when I was a kid. This is their best song.
