Lyrics

Like the stripe and some polka dots
Dirty jokes in the coffee shop
This is detestable
But when I see you you give me the sweetest smile

And it's bad when I call you in
To the office and borrow your pen
Some might say nefarious
But I know you really wanna see what I'm writing down

They're gonna call the police
They're gonna bring in the SWAT team
'Cuz we've been breaking the law
And we don't know how to stop

Maybe they'll understand that it's in the cards
And maybe they'll let us go if we try real hard

They're gonna call the police
They're gonna bring in the SWAT team
'Cuz we've been breaking the law
And we don't know how to stop
And we don't know how to stop

Got a job at the clinic
Where I tried to shoplift it
With the cook I'ma clean it
Criminal on the loose

They're gonna call the police
They're gonna bring in the SWAT team
'Cuz we've been breaking the law
And we don't know how to stop

They're gonna call the police
They're gonna bring in the SWAT team
'Cuz we've been breaking the law
And we don't know how to stop

They're gonna call the police
