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
