Thin Lizzy

Thin Lizzy are an Irish rock band formed in Dublin in 1969. Two of the founding members, drummer Brian Downey and bass guitarist/vocalist Phil Lynott, met while still in school. Lynott assumed the role of frontman and led them throughout their recording career of twelve studio albums. Thin Lizzy are best known for their songs "Whiskey in the Jar", "Jailbreak" and "The Boys Are Back in Town", all major international hits still played regularly on hard rock and classic rock radio stations. After Lynott's death in 1986, various incarnations of the band have emerged over the years based around guitarists Scott Gorham and John Sykes, though Sykes left the band in 2009. more »

Betty was worried about the lover that she has married
And she didn't know what to do
He'd been hit by a hammer on the head and he lay dead
An' all her worst fears had come true

[Chorus]
Call the police
Call the police
Call the police
Call the police

Johnny was a joker and a very heavy smoker
And he never ever broke the law
Thin miss lizzy was a-kept very busy
And sometimes very dizzy, we knew what for

[Chorus]

And take 'em all away
Lock 'em up

[Chorus: x4]

Louie was a loner and a big time Al Capone-er
Doin' all his dipping from the door
He knew a shady dealer who had done a dirty DJ,
The sooner he could even the score

[Chorus]

And lock 'em up
Help ya have a birthday, say
Take 'em all away
