First Tab so sorry if it's wrong, sounds about right.

Capo 2.

[Verse 1]

              Em D C
Up rolled the riot van
                         Em D C
And sparked excitement in the boys
                     Em D C
But the policemen look annoyed
                                 Em D C
Perhaps these are ones they should avoid

[Refrain 1]

G                          Bm                                  Am       D
They got a chase last night from men with truncheon's dressed in hats
G                          Bm                                  Am       D
They didn't do that much wrong, still ran away though for the laugh 

[Verse 2]
(same as verse 1)

"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"

[Refrain 2]

G                          Bm                                  Am       D
"Have you been drinking son, you don't look old enough to me"
G                          Bm                                  Am       D
"I'm sorry officer is there a certain age you're supposed to be?.. nobody told me"

[Verse 3]
(same as verse 1)

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

(verse chords progression)

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

i believe that the parts "got a chase last night" etc, and "Have you been drinking son?" is G, Bm, Am, D
