When a Felon's Not Engaged in His Employment lyrics

When a Felon's Not Engaged in His Employment

Sergeant.
When a felon's not engaged in his employment -

Police.
His employment,

Sergeant.
Or maturing his felonious little plans -

Police.
Little plans,

Sergeant.
His capacity for innocent enjoyment -

Police.
'Cent enjoyment

Sergeant.
Is just as great as any honest man's -

Police.
Honest man's.

Sergeant.
Our feelings we with difficulty smother -

Police.
'Culty smother,

Sergeant.
When constabulary duty's to be done -

Police.
To be done.

Sergeant.
Ah, take one consideration with another -

Police.
With another,

Sergeant.
A policeman's lot is not a happy one.

Police.
Ah!

Sergeant & Police.
When constabulary duty's to be done, to be done,
A policeman's lot is not a happy one, happy one.

Sergeant.
When the enterprising burglar's not a-burgling -

Police.
Not a-burgling.

Sergeant.
When the cut-throat isn't occupied in crime -

Police.
'Pied in crime,

Sergeant.
He loves to hear the little brook a-gurgling -

Police.
Brook a-gurgling,

Sergeant.
And listen to the merry village chime -

Police.
Village chime.

Sergeant.
When the coster's finished jumping on his mother -

Police.
On his mother,

Sergeant.
He loves to lie a-basking in the sun -

Police.
In the sun.

Sergeant.
Ah, take one consideration with another -

Police.
With another,

Sergeant.
A policeman's lot is not a happy one.

Police.
Ah!

Sergeant & Police.
When constabulary duty's to be done, to be done,
A policeman's lot is not a happy one, happy one.
