And now, a folk song plucked from our police blotter!

The Brooklyn Paper

This week, our jammin’ columnist, Frank Hoier, was inspired by a scary story in this week’s police blotter about a two-man gunman team robbing people all over the place. It’s perfect fodder for this week’s “Rhythm and News” feature.

He even provided the lyrics this week.

For a Dollar Each

Words and music by Frank Hoier

They robbed a man
For a dollar each
They robbed a man
For a dollar each
With an automatic gun
Down on Bridge street

These two men came down
All dressed in black
These two men came down
All dressed in black
One clean shaven
And one in a ski mask

For a wallet and
some credit cards
For a wallet and
some credit cards
These two men put
A life at harm

They robbed a man
for a dollar each
They robbed a man
for a dollar each
With an automatic gun
Down on Joralemon

Pointed a gun
at a young man’s chest
Pointed a gun
at a young man’s chest
For a wallet
and a few bucks at best

They robbed a man
for a dollar each
They robbed a man
for a dollar each
With an automatic gun
down on Joralemon

I really enjoy Frank Hoier's "Rythym & News". I do not enjoy his MC interrupting and joining in.
