Cops in the Kitchen

she came runnin into the diner
said don't go to the kitchen today
cop cars are parked outside and they're takin people away
i didn't want the dog there to be living all alone so i went
down to get him and to find whats goin on
got there and the fat cop
who was sittin by the door said
come on in to the party i saw my friends sittin lined up on the floor
he told me empty out your pockets
put all your stuff down there
and when he asked me who i knew
i said the one with the long hair
well i did what he said but he looked a little glum
guess he wanted to find something more than some lint and chewing gum
i said i don't have no coke man, i just came to get the dog
he said, sue you'd better leave and don't you come round here no more
so i got my stuff and moved in the next week

they were waitin for the snow storm but it never came
of course my friends they went to jail just the same
must have been a low crime time in Kent ohio cause
about 40 people stopped to visit
but no one came to buy and oh they were waitin for the snow
waitin for the snow
but all it did was rain

well, i said i'm not leavin til i get my dog
and the fat cop he just said
we put the dog out hours ago it'll come back when it wants fed
i searched the town for hours but to no avail so i
think the cops took him for trafficking and he couldn't make the bail

thought i must be paranoid thought i was followed by the man
but coming home from jb's i was tailed by a police van
i didn't have a sheet or bag or pockets full of crack
but still the bastards bug me so i walked home on the tracks

the cops around the town of Kent well they must not have much to do
saw an undercover man once eat some egg that he dropped onto his shoe
you can't walk around with long hair hippy bracelets tie dye do
cause the cops wanna be big drug war-lords and
they're probly followin you
cause, they were waitin for the snow storm but it never came
of course my friends they went to jail just the same
must have been a low crime time in Kent ohio cause about
40 people stopped to visit but no one came to buy and oh
they were waitin for the snow
waitin for the snow
but all it did was rain
