This February, only one series will involve keeping child molesters out of jail--unless Two and a Half Men should finally head down the path it seemed initially fated for. It's Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad spin-off that sees Saul Goodman (né James M. McGill) defending all sorts of criminals. And though the series still has a few months before its premiere, AMC has debuted a music video theme for the show that gives a lyrical preview of just what kind of scumbags will be enlisting Saul's services. Creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould wrote the lyrics, and the song is performed by Junior Brown. Check it out below.

From AMC, here are the official lyrics:

You drink one, drink two, drink three Long Island ice teas But your buddy's worse off, and he throws ya his car keys Blue lights are a blinking', four o'clock in the morn, State trooper makes you wish that you'd never been born

Better Call Saul, Better Call Saul

You wanna tell the world you're in love with a girl named Fran
So you find an overpass and say it with a spray paint can
Blue lights start a blinking', those handcuffs click
You know who to call, and you'd better call quick!

Saul, Saul, you better call Saul -
He'll fight for your rights when your back's to the wall
Stick it the Man, Justice for all -
You better call Saul!

(4 bar instrumental break)

Shopping at the Wal-Mart, short just a couple of beans
there's a George Foreman grill down the back of your blue jeans
they caught you at the checkout and the blue lights blink -
Only one guy to call, 'cause the others all stink

Better Call Saul, Better Call Saul

Your husband disappeared in a most convenient way
Now your troubles are gone, his insurance will surely pay
You get to the bank but the cops say "whoa!"
who ya gonna dial when they lock you down cold?

Saul, Saul, you better call Saul -
He'll fight for your rights when your back's to the wall
Stick it the Man, Justice for all -
You heard me... you better call Saul!

(8 bar Instrumental Break)

Your customers are gone, and your store is on the rocks
Spread around the gas, 'cuz it's time to torch the stock
But ya gotta move quick before you singe your own hair
who knew there was a homeless guy sleepin' in there!

Better Call Saul, Better Call Saul

FBI finds some kids trapped in your creepy van
You stay real cool and tell 'em you're the ice cream man
But all their crying just gave you away
Who you gonna call to skip a prison stay?

Saul, Saul, you better call Saul -
He'll fight for your rights when your back's to the wall
Stick it the Man, Justice for all -
You better call Saul!
