    Lyrics

    On The Beat Pete

    Up I rush off to work
    Hello Fred you look half dead and
    Are you coming are you going
    I could never do a double shift
    (Allo Fred get some bed Fred)

    Hello Steve long time no see
    I like the Stones still on the thieve
    Bet you ain't half seen some time
    In your short-lived life of crime
    (By the way, have you got the time ?)

    On the beat Pete
    Wiv me size ten feet
    I wander up and down the town
    For me that's a treat
    The beauties of the city and
    Everything's sweet
    For me that's a treat
    'Cos I'm on the beat Pete
    Swing my truncheon merrily
    Try to teach the blind to see
    Move a lady for a seat
    Tourist find a sight to see
    Mingle with the crowd
    I wonder if they're proud
    Yes, that would be a treat
    'Cos I'm on the beat Pete... beat Pete

    Hello Snowball, you still drunk ?
    Here have a smoke, anyone for lunch ?
    A printed person of last week's times
    Seen a lot of stars and moonshine
    (Spare you a dime ?)

    On the beat Pete
    Wiv me size ten feet
    I wander up and down the town
    For me that's a treat
    The beauties of the city and
    Everything's sweet
    For me that's a treat
    'Cos I'm on the beat Pete
    Swing my truncheon merrily
    Try to teach the blind to see
    Move a lady for a seat
    Tourist find a sight to see
    Mingle with the crowd
    I wonder if they're proud
    Yes, that would be a treat
    'Cos I'm on the beat Pete... beat Pete

    Hello Bun been down the oven ?
    What's the rate for a single person ?
    Is it good, is it sad ?
    You look unhappy it must be bad

    Hello May been a busy lady
    All work and no time for play
    Still it's the life you chose I suppose
    Good luck to you come what may !
    Skip-a-di-do-da-days !

    On the beat Pete
    Wiv me size ten feet
    I wander up and down the town
    For me that's a treat
    The beauties of the city and
    Everything's sweet
    For me that's a treat
    'Cos I'm on the beat Pete
    Swing my truncheon merrily
    Try to teach the blind to see
    Move a lady for a seat
    Tourist find a sight to see
    Mingle with the crowd
    I wonder if they're proud
    Yes, that would be a treat
    'Cos I'm on the beat Pete... beat Pete
