Police officer, how can it be
You arrest everybody but cruel Stagolee
That bad man
Cruel Stagolee

Billy Linus told Stagolee
"Please don't take my life
I've got two little children
And a loving wife"
That bad man
Cruel Stagolee

Do I care about your two babes
Or your loving wife
You done took my Stetson hat
I'm bound to take your life?
That bad man
Cruel Stagolee

Stagolee stood on the gallows, 
Head held high
Twelve o'clock they killed him
We were all glad to see him die
That bad man 
Cruel Stagolee
