a quite different thing

a cop car slides by my driveway, slowly, methodically checking me out, sitting on my front steps they must know there's a warrant out for my arrest, I thought, and are trying to decide if it would be worth taking me in it was Saturday night and so I played it cool, got up and started walking as if I had nothing better to do they followed along side of me and turned when I turned the corner turned when I turned again well let's see if we can't make a night of this, I thought to myself stopped walking and turned to the cop car said to the officers through the open window, I'm going for a cup of coffee you guys want to come along they looked at each other looked at me and nodded and motioned me forward so I kept walking it might have been raining
