The Blues Police of the WBS
The Blues Police, they will make me confess
The Blues Police they're coming to arrest me, oh no.

You know that talk is cheap, and those rumors ain't nice.
And when I work in clubs I don't think I'll survive the night, the night.

Cause they're waiting for me.
They're looking for me.
Ev'ry single night they're driving me insane.
Those Nazis without brains.

Well, I can't play rock, cause they're listening to me.
And when I play some jazz, bet they're spying on me tonight, tonight.

Cause they're waiting for me.
They're looking for me.
Ev'ry single night they're driving me insane.
Those Nazis without brains.

I'm at a gig, they're by the stage, they won't leave me alone.
And if they don't like what they hear, well then the gigs are gone.
They want a shuffle, two harp solos, won't let me alone.
They persecute me, they're the judge and jury all in one.

Cause they're waiting for me.
They're looking for me.
Ev'ry single night they're driving me insane.
Those Nazis without brains.

Aphrodite Pantages says: You forgot the shades, man. You cannot be an official blues guy or gal without your shades. And you will take a very non uniform promo picture without them if everyone else is wearing them (In the picture.) Remember you will loose your blues power if you DO NOT wear them! It's like Kriptonite was to Superman. Plus, think of your image my god! And don't forget those suitcoats and razor sharp creased pants. Remember it was a fifty dollar fine in James Browns band if your suit was wrinkled and your suit pants were not creased so sharp they could cut you!

As with this blog, the Blues Police should also die a slow horrid death.
At least this blog has something to offer the Blues comminity.
The Blues Police do not.

It's also important to put down bands that "just" play the blues all night or dare to play shuffles. If you don't put on a "show" you're costing me $$$$! Some of us wear sunglases because we're deaf. Fuck The Blues (Pigs)!
