Bad Boys Bad Boys.....(Iraqi style)

With the fall of tyranny and liberation in Iraq, Iraqi citizens have begun to reap the benefits of freedom in various ways including having their own national version of COPS. Yeah, don't remember that show, with its catchy theme song along with an always great opening video of fat cops chasing speedy dimwited criminals over fences and through the mean streets of New York and bumblecreek?

Iraq's 'Cops' brings police into living rooms (CNN.com)

It's "Cops" Iraqi-style, minus the "Bad Boys" soundtrack but otherwise roughly modeled after the American TV show.

Created to make government more transparent, "The Cops Show" featuring Kirkuk officers in action is the first of its kind in the country and is breaking new ground in Iraqi television. A live call-in portion gives the public the chance to praise the security forces or gripe about them....

How bout COPS Israeli style? Anyone up for lil televised SHOTRIM? Bad Jew, Bad Jew, A watcha gonna do? A whatcha gonna do when they come for you?...
And for DB we can have some fat corupt ashki cop beating the bejezuses out of some sephardic punk, although truth be told I didn't see too many fat cops in Israel. Bad donuts?

Well if any of you are thinking of breaking the rules or just up for a little translation here is the lyrics from http://www.lyricsdepot.com/inner-circle/bad-boys.html. I didn't know this, but the song was written by Inner Circle, not that I'm familiar with the band or anything. The actual song is much longer than what they air on TV, so I copied the whole song with the blue part being what is left off TV for the sake of commercial time.



Bad boys
Whatcha want, watcha want
Whatcha gonna do
When sheriff John Brown come for you
Tell me
Whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna dooo
Yeaheah
CHORUS:
Bad boys, bad boys
Whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do
When they come for you
(Repeat)
When you were eight
And you had bad traits
You go to school
And learn the golden rule
So why are you
Acting like a bloody fool
If you get hot
You must get cool
CHORUS
You chuck it on that one
You chuck it on this one
You chuck it on your mother and
You chuck it on your father
You chuck it on your brother and
You chuck it on your sister
You chuck it on that one and
You chuck it on me
CHORUS
(Repeat)
Nobody naw give you no break
Police naw give you no break
Soldier naw give you no break
Not even you idren naw give you no break
Hehe
CHORUS
(Repeat)
Why did you have to act so mean
Don't you know you're human being
Born of a mother with the love of a father
Reflections come and reflections go
I know sometimes you want to let go
Hehehe
I know sometimes you want to let go
Bad boys, bad boys
Whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do
When they come for you
(Repeat)
(You're too bad, you're too rude)
(You're too bad, you're too rude)
Bad boys, bad boys
Whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do
When they come for you
(Repeat)
(Repeat)
You chuck it on that one
You chuck it on this one
You chuck it on your mother and
You chuck it on your father
You chuck it on your brother and
You chuck it on your sister
You chuck it on that one and
You chuck it on me
CHORUS
(repeat 'til the end)

it was Israeli cops who have taught me a terrible contempt for Kurdish Jewry.
The gay, frustrated cop in charge of fingerprinting at the russian compound is no fun either.

of course, the Israeli version of cops would have to be very edited to not give the impression of chas v shalom, dishonesty, mainpulation, or other traditional Israeli cop staples.
They would just turn on and off the cameras alot.
