The Portland Police/Occupy Portland Lament

[with apologizes to Lennon-McCartney]


I'm so tired
I haven't slept a wink
I'm so tired
My mind is on the blink
I wonder should I get down
Pepper spray another fink
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm so tired
I don't know who to berate
I'm so tired
My club is set on you ape
Thanks to you filthy hippies
I was late to another call of rape
Yeah, yeah, yeah

The Mayor he's been putting you on
Well it's no joke
He's doing you harm
You know I can't sleep, I can't stop my brain
You know it's three weeks, I'm going insane
Funny how the media don't notice we cover our badges and names

I'm so tired
I'm feeling so upset
Although I'm so tired
Put out that cigarette
And curse Sir Walter Raleigh
You deserve everything you get
Yeah, yeah, yeah

The Mayor he's been putting you on
Well it's no joke
He's doing you harm
You know I can't sleep, I can't stop my brain
You know it's three weeks, I'm going insane
Funny how the media don't notice we cover our badges and names
Funny how the media don't notice we cover our badges and names
Funny how the media don't notice we cover our badges and names
