<< The Electric Palace Do-Dah Song You Have the Right My Ode to Macaroni >>

"You Have the Right" is a song sung for the judges of "America Sings!" by Officer Stew Burke. Much of the humor of the song is in the fact that he is a police officer, and it is filled with jokes referring to this, such as his begging her for a "10-4", and the title itself, which reminds the girl that she has the right to remain silent, even though he is madly in love with her.

Lyrics

I am your man in blue.
And I'm so in love with you.
But I don't know what to do.
I haven't detected one clue.
But beat as my heart for you.
And I've got a case of blues.
You're cute and you're shy, it's true --
But darlin' if only I knew.


But you have the right -- to remain silent.
Here in the code book.
Anything you say -- could be useful to me.
Answer my hope from above.


Spoken

Oh darlin', this is a 911 call.
It's an emergency of love.


You light up my life code three,
A siren that calls for me.
But please don't you pull 10-3
Don't stop your transmission to me.
Now give me a 10-19,
And I will be on the scene.
No longer a wall between.
What a treasure a 10-4 would mean.


My love is in custody,
You have arrested me.
Please make your bond and I'm free!


But you have the right
to remain silent.
Here in the code book.
Anything you say
Could be useful to me.
Answer my hope from above.
