Don't Do That

Patrick Cannell 2009
Don't Do That. No, don't do that.
You might be arrested, so don't do that.
Keep acting dumb, the word is "mum".
Someone might be listening, so keep it shtum.

Time was when we didn't have to think about
What we did or if it was acceptable.
Now we've got a nanny shouting in our ears,
"Don't do that or you might go to jail for years.
Stop it you naughty boys, stop it you naughty girls
And do this instead."

Down in the street, some petty sneak
Is bound to be watching. So be discreet.

Time was when we didn't have to think about
What we said or if it was acceptable.
Now we've got a nanny shouting in our ears,
"Don't say that or you might go to jail for years.
Stop it you naughty boys, stop it you naughty girls
And do this instead."
