Illegal left on Sunday morning
On the corner I was warning
Waving widly, wildy warnin'
Don’t take that turn on Sunday morning

A motorcycle cop was waiting
He had to fill his ticket booth
On his nerves now I was grating
Illegal left that no one took

Well, maybe I should mind my own
And maybe it’s not my concern
But somewhere someone's suffering
And this is an illegal turn

Sunday morning not too far
Someone’s taking someone’s car
Someone’s taking someone out
Someone needs you now, no doubt

He told me I should move along
I said, you’ve got the whole thing wrong
I’ll stay here I’ve got the time
And you can deal with real crime

He didn’t like what I was saying
No not at all no not one bit
I didn’t see the point in staying
It was fun though I admit

Maybe I should mind my own
And maybe it’s not my concern
But somewhere someone’s suffering
And this is an illegal turn

Sunday morning, not too far
Someone’s taking someone’s car
Someone’s taking someone out
Someone needs you now, no doubt
Hey!
