Once there was a fellow
and his name was Buzz.
He was just a rookie cop
just a baby fuzz.

He patrolled the Sunset Strip
in the land of the free
and the home of the hip.

He protected you and me
from evil women like
poor Alice D

Alice was the girl
that all good hippies dread
and they called her sweet Alice D'head

Alice it was plain to see was
full of pot and STP
she'd attract a great big crowd
because her inner peace was much too loud.

Good Buzz did the thing
that all the good fuzz must
stuck his gun in Alice's back
and said 'This is a bust'

Shone the flashlight in her eyes
she began to hypnotize
Buzz said 'What a wild sensation'
guess this must be hallu hallucina cina cina cination hmmm

Love is so sensational
when you fall in love with eyes dilational la la
now they're taking pills and shots
And Buzz is not afraid of Watts

Buzz and Alice D have shown
the way of where the Fuzz might be some day

Buzz is still a cop of course
he's the pusher on the force
he's protecting you and me
from evil women like
poor Alice D

    General CommentYou can find this song on 'The Forgotten Songs of David Robert Jones' or 'Rare and Well Done' Anyways, he's telling the cops off. Simple as that. Well, except the character named Buzz. Woops. Huge drug addiction is mentioned in the eighth stanza.
