GUEST,BobL Origins: The Copper's Song (Hamish Imlach) (14) RE: Origins of song - 'it was midnight in. . .' 11 May 07


Joe, the whole point of the joke lies in the total incongruity between the behaviour described in the song, and that of real-life police whose integrity and professionalism is generally above question (occasional and well-publicized exceptions notwithstanding).

Incidentally this song is a favourite when sung by our local copper. Wouldn't be quite the same coming from anyone else.
