The Lyrics

Those who try to protect the environment are to be commended for being idealistic. But sometimes environmentalists (like the Brisbane bureaucrats who ordered 100 Toyota Camry hybrid police cars) need to try to be practical, too. What will they think of next?
It’s the riddle told lately in vast Australia,

The riddle told lately in vast Australia,
Go Camry, go Camry, go Camry, go!

Queensland has competent cops and a really tough jailer
Go Camry, go Camry, go Camry, go!
But since the new police cars got unveiled,
They’ve caught lots of crooks, but they can’t get them jailed!

And everybody’s wondering why no one curtailed the
Purchase of hybrids in Queensland, Australia
Those small boots are giving cops a fit
‘Cause now they put their gear where criminals should sit.

It’s the riddle told lately in vast Australia,

Brisbane’s the place for crooks to make their debut in;
Go Camry, go Camry, go Camry, go!
‘Cause, if you get caught, there’s no way to haul you in.
Go Camry, go Camry, go Camry, go!
Well Lindsay Lohan’s gonna get there sooner or later,
‘Cause she knows the police cannot incarcerate her!

Now they’ll have to lay off the staff of the jailer
Go Camry, go Camry, go Camry, go!
‘Cause no one’s going to jail in Queensland, Australia.
Next to go are the prosecutors
When Camrys get replaced by new Razor Scooters.

It’s the riddle told lately in vast Australia,

Go Scooter, go Scooter, go Scooter, go!

John - Great job here. Until now, a green cop meant a rookie. No place for the detainees? Plus, a hybrid Camry can't even catch the bird flu. Why didn't they just issue SEGWAYS and be done with it? G'day, mate. ;D

Maybe they'll just hand out notices, like in Britain, telling offenders please don't do that again.

Thanks for the votes and comments.

OMR and Patrick - for some environmentalists, you can't be too green - they might just do what you suggest!
