If I don't catch policy, buy me a .45
If I don't catch policy, buy me a hard-shootin’ .45
I’m getting tired of you policy writers telling me a plenty of lie

Now, look-a here, policy writer, I play both night and day, you gets my money then you walk away,
And if I don't catch policy I'm gonna lay you low, 'cause I’m getting sick and tired of you taking my dough
REFRAIN: If I don't catch policy, kill every writer I see
I’m getting tired of you policy writers 3-6-9-in’ poor me

Now, look-a here, son, you better not be late, that gig's gonna come out in the interstate,
So you'd better get down and get down right, that gig's gonna fall out tonight
REFRAIN: If I don't catch policy, kill every writer I see
I’m getting tired of you policy writers 3-6-9-in’ poor me

The next day she come around, I could tell from her look, I had played those numbers in the wrong book
Now I plays policy both day and night, and none of those numbers ever come out right
REFRAIN: If I don't catch policy, kill every writer I see
I’m getting tired of you policy writers 3-6-9-in’ poor me

Now, look-a here, policy writer, you better walk slow, I'm getting tired of you knocking on my back door,
I plays policy I ain’t gonna play no more, I'm getting tired of playing 4-11 and 44
REFRAIN: If I don't catch policy, kill every writer I see
'Cause I’m getting tired of you policy writers 3-6-9-in’ poor me
