"My Beat"   

Every day as I begin my tour of duty I pray to god that
I make it home safe at the end of my shift, and I tell myself in the mirror!
"Nothing is going to hurt my beat to night"
Because I have pride in doing my job, and I will do it to my fullest even if
it means giving up my own life for someone else ...
I am a police officer.
When my night finally ends and I go home, I hold my head up proud
give a little smile and tell myself!
"Nothing is going to hurt my beat tonight"
