There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I've put the chords up for the first verse and the chorus, rest of the songs the same. 
solo's played with a tremelo effect if you've got one, and only has the bass playing in 

   Dmaj7    C#m7    Bm7      A       E      E6

              Dmaj7 C#m7
Up rolled the riot van
   Bm7                              Dmaj7 C#m7
And sparked excitement in the boys
   Bm7                          Dmaj7 C#m7
But the policemen look annoyed
   Bm7                                    Dmaj7 C#m7 Bm7
Perhaps these are ones they should avoid

A                          C#m7                         Bm7          E  E6  E
They got a chase last night from men with truncheon’s dressed in hats
A                             C#m7                              Bm7
They didn’t do that much wrong, still ran away though for the laugh
                   E  E6  E
just for the laugh

Please just stop talking
Because they won’t find us if you do
Oh those silly boys in blue
Well they won’t catch me and you

Have you been drinking son, you don’t look old enough to me
I’m sorry officer is there a certain age you’re supposed to be?
nobody told me

Up rolled the riot van
And these lads just wind the coppers up
Ask why they don’t catch proper crooks
Get their address and their name’s took
But they couldn’t care less


He got thrown in the riot van
And all the coppers kicked him in
And there was no way he could win
Just had to take it on the chin
