I always thought the line was "does the universal cop have a beat."

I always heard it as “punk” but cop would have made sense for sure. Does a clock actually beat?

I love this lyric though. Baby flak jackets on the merry go round is such an evocative and prescient line.

BRILLIANT line.

... I also thought the final bit was "too many cars in this damn town." :disshame: :disshame: :disshame:
