This is actually the truncated version. There's a lot more in the "A" edition.

Thanks for the info, I hate it when they do that!! Gotta get an A edition.

I had the album that went along with the book, complete with music. I remember the song by heart.

"I'm a policeman. Yes, it's true. Here are the things I like to do: direct the traffic in your town, help to keep you safe and sound. It's my job! And I like it fine. No one has a better job than mine!"

Next verse, "I'm a policeman dressed in blue, I want to be a friend to you. You can see me every day, I will wave my hand and say it's my job, and I like it fine. No one has a better job than mine!"
