A Filk

Filker Leslie Fish has written a filk, "Dirty Harry" about the character (formerly here). The first verse & refrain:

See him stalking day or night, the cities of the bay
Like some veteran tiger come to hunt his chosen prey
He'll never lack for targets here for scum will always rise
And to the man who guards your streets that comes as no surprise
And who will be the guardian to take your dangers on?
Who will guard you sleep at night when Dirty Harry's gone?
