lyrics

I owe my dirt cheap rent to Cornell Jones
The King of Hanover in ‘84
Beyond the border, the will to take him on
Stops when the shipment’s what they want

Around the bend I see the Capitol Dome
What do we stand for, Cornell Jones?
The arms of justice couldn’t reach this far north
Olleray, Olleray
What do we stand for, Cornell Jones?

I owe this city block to Cornell Jones
One way no outlet built for lords of war
And each time they book us, our list of contacts grows
To sell the shots heard round the globe

Around the bend I see the Capitol Dome
What do we stand for, Cornell Jones?
The wings of justice singed with bullet holes
Olleray, Olleray
What do we stand for, Cornell Jones?

I dedicate this crime to Cornell Jones
The caution tape brings back the glory days
Mr. Jones, he bought me shoes, he sent all my friends to school
If they could make it home unscathed

Around the bend I see the Capitol Dome
What do we stand for, Cornell Jones?
The sounds of justice send the scouts running home, they shout
Olleray, Olleray
What do we stand for, Cornell Jones?
