The Singing Detectives

Does any­one remem­ber the orig­i­nal ads for drink dri­ving by the NSW Police Force?

I can remem­ber almost all the words… but not quite. If any­one can fill in the gaps, it would be most appre­ci­at­ed, and most hilar­i­ous.

I can’t be the only per­son in the world who’d love to remem­ber this won­der­ful song in its full glo­ry…

(the ques­tion marks rep­re­sent the miss­ing line)

Here is the incom­plete ver­sion:

Please accept our apolo­gies for the
incon­ve­nience we are
gonna have to cause you…

But there’s
just no alter­na­tive if we’re
gonna let thou­sands more live
