Cops & Buns
Now, we don't come up here because we feel like walkin' four flights at three o'clock in the morning.
We were up here last night. (bark, bark) Now for us-
I wasnt here last night.
Now for us to continually come up to this here place every night and not show no action other than to say, yes theres a , we look kinda bad. I mean. lets be honest. Now if you had to give me any kinda reccomendation, or mark my word, a mistake, every night, 3-4, 2-4, betwen those hours you guys are at 53 E 10 st, what are you doin there every night? You mean you-you permit this kinda condition to continue on without once giving a summons?
Alright, your lawyer says to knock it off!
Uh, were puttin ourselves over backwards with these people. Do you know what were doin? Do you know what were doin?
No, tell me. No, please tell me.
Well this is, if were up here once were up here twenty times. I know that little guy, like the guy at the...like a long-lost brother. Now if we ever get called down, if this ever goes to a big explosion, and they say, Officer, what did you do, did you ever issue summonses?, they get ... this is all in the rekkid book, how many times we been up here. This is all rekkids...
Now if these people wanna subpeona these rekkids, they could subpeona these rekkids. An they could find out how many times we been.. this is us on- Wait! This is us alone! An they say, Officer, what did you do? Warn em? You mean to tell me you were up here about twenty times an you never issued a summons?
There have been summonses.
Well, WE never issued em! How many summonses have you gotten for noise? Unknown:
What, me personally, or the studio?
The studio, studio. Unknown:
I don't know how many, but theres a court case pending right now..
We've gotten one.
One! One! And how many times have I, eh, uh, hey listen! As I say, if I been up here once Ive been up here twenty times already.
Hey look, stop it, pack that stuff up, stop making noise you guys!
Yeah, well, I understand
Well, whose in charge here at the studio?
here he is
He's more or less in charge
Are you in charge? I don't run the studio.. I jus..
Alright, listen, lemme tell you one thing
I'm in- I'm in charge
Youre in charge at this point
My name is Patrolman Lefemine
Here, have a BUN.
Now, as of tonight, right
You wanna BUN?
If I come back here, and every night that I do come back here, I don't care who says he's in charge, I will issue a summons
I'm issuing you a bun
An anybody thinks its a great joke, you can all laugh in the car... We havent put out one hit record yet? My goodness. It takes a long time. You know what I mean.
This is ridiculous!
Are you sure you don't want one o those breakfast rolls on your way down the stairs?
You better believe that I don't want nuthin
Who gets-who gets the summons, is the the organization?
Whoever it is in charge at the time. He could say Joe Blow, I don't care what kind of a name he gives. Then if the courts decide if they wanna know who he's takin orders from, theyll summons that person to court. Thats all there is to it.
Alright. Take care.
