A copper

How do ya like that boys, a copper

And we went for it, I went for it

Treated him like a kid brother

And I was gonna split fifty-fifty with a copper

They were there waitin' to pin a medal on him

"Come on get up, get your hands up!"

Yeah, that's it, a nice gold medal for the copper

Only maybe he's gonna get it sooner than he thinks!

 

Get up stand tall

Put your back up against the wall

'Cause my love is dangerous

This is a bust

Get up stand tall

Put your back up against the wall

'Cause my love is dangerous

This is a bust

 

You think you can have my love for free

Well, I've got news for you

That's not the way it's gonna be

So don't come hangin' round my door

If you're not ready to give

You're not gonna get much more

 

I don't want to live out your fantasy

Love's not that easy

This time you're gonna

Gonna have to play my way

Come on make my day

 

Get up stand tall

Put your back up against the wall

'Cause my love is dangerous

This is a bust

Get up stand tall

Put your back up against the wall

'Cause my love is dangerous

This is a bust

 

Can you feel the rhythm of my mind

Boy I've got so much to give

But I don't want to waste my time

I can't let my heart put on a show

'Til you surrender baby

You've got to let it go

 

I don't want to live out your fantasy

Love's not that easy

This time you're gonna

Gonna have to play my way

Come on make my day

 

Get up stand tall

Put your back up against the wall

'Cause my love is dangerous

This is a bust

Get up stand tall

Put your back up against the wall

'Cause my love is dangerous

This is a bust

 

Drop your weapons

You'd better come clean

I've got you covered

I'll catch you when you fall to me

I'm not gonna hurt you

'Cause I'm not that kind

We're not goin' nowhere

'Til you have a change of mind

 

You haven't got a chance, come out with your hands up

'Come out with your hands up', the man says

How do you like that ma'?

Here's my answer, you dirty

I don't want to live out your fantasy

Love's not that easy

This time you're gonna

Gonna have to play my way

Come on make my day

 

Get up stand tall

Put your back up against the wall

'Cause my love is dangerous

This is a bust

Get up stand tall

Put your back up against the wall

'Cause my love is dangerous

This is a bust

 

(Get up stand tall)

Come on baby, make my day

('Cause my love is dangerous)

You're gonna have to play my way

(This is a bust)

(Get up stand tall)

Put your back up against the wall

('Cause my love is dangerous)

This is a bust

 

(Get up stand tall) Get up, get up, get up

('Cause my love is dangerous)

This is a bust

 

(Get up stand tall)

I'm so good for you baby here I come

I'm gonna get to you before the day is done

('Cause my love is dangerous)

This is a bust

 

(Get up stand tall)

Come on baby, make my day

('Cause my love is dangerous)

You're gonna have to play my way

Tour

White Heat @ Who's That Girl TourDressed in a golden jacket over her black corset and a black hat, Madonna performed this song on the Who's That Girl Tour. Following the song's criminal undertone, she ran around, shooting on target boards with a pistol. At the end, the music turned jazzy, as she slowly shot everything within sight.
