"Continental Op (To: Daniel Hammet)" as written by and Rory Gallagher....
There's a body in the bay The cops are taking it away They said this case was closed It only shows you that never know So who they gonna get When the troubles got to stop Here's my card I'm the Continental Op Jane Doe in the bay Now that's exhibit 'A' Bloodstains on the dress of the millionairess But I saw you leavin' town I'm gonna have to track you down Just like a hound You slipped through the web And you might have dodged the Feds But who they gonna get when you've outfoxed the cops Here's my number I'm the Continental Op Call the agency, we never close First consultation is free Check my reputation, check my pose But first check my fee There's a menace on the streets Offering infants sweets Don't give this man a ride Lock your car from the inside He's suspect No. 1 But I guess his race is run He left a set of prints He's not as smart as he thinks 'Cause who they gonna get When the trouble's gotta stop Here's my card I'm the Continental Op There's a body in the bay The cops have taken it away They say this case was closed It only shows that you never know Bruises 'round the neck When they did a body check I saw you leaving town I'll track you down like a hound Who they gonna get when you've outfoxed the cop Here's my card I'm the Continental Op Yeah, who they gonna get When you've out foxed they cops Here's my badge I'm the Continental Op
