Bernie Gets - Roger Deitz

    (sung to the tune of "Jingle Bells")

    Dashing through the turnstile
    With a loaded .38
    He gets any seat he wants
    He never has to wait

    He's the hero to the many
    Who ride the underground
    And claim that when you need a cop
    There's never one around... Oh

    Bernie gets, Bernie gets, Bernie gets off free
    Oh what fun it is to go out on a shooting spree (repeat)

    The mayor's hugging Bernie
    It's re-election time
    The New York Post is asking Koch
    Just where he stands on crime

    "I'm against it, How'm I doin'
    Give me five" the mayor quips.
    This makes Bernie nervous
    And his trigger ringer slips... but

    [Repeat Chorus]

    Vigilantes are so charming
    The jury sure was grand
    They've given us encouragement
    To arm and take a stand

    Now no one goes to movies
    Or the theater for a play
    They head down to the IRT
    To blow other folks away...Oh!

    [Repeat Chorus]

    Poor Bernie got indicted
    He'll have to go to trial
    I guess that we will see him
    On the TV for a while

    See, Bernie shot his gun off
    And still he wasn't through
    He finally got in trouble
    When he shot his mouth off, too... but

    [Repeat Chorus]
