Paul McCartney demonstrated that he's a fan of Marvel comics when he wrote this song. In particular, 3 supervillains are referred to: The Crimson Dynamo and Titanium Man are armor-wearing Russian or Soviet agents who are archenemies of Iron Ma, while Magneto has been the X-Men's arch-nemesis since his (and their) first appearance. The storyline is that the 3 supervillains are claiming that the narrator's girlfriend, who is a police officer, is planning a bank robbery.


Well I was talking last night
Magneto and titanium man . . .
We were talking about you, babe,
Oo --- they said ---
You were involved in a robbery
That was due to happen
At a quarter to three
In the main street.

I didnt believe them
Magneto and titanium man . . .
But when the crimson dynamo
Finally assured me, well, I knew

You were involved in a robbery
That was due to happen
At a quarter to three
In the main street.

So we went out
Magneto and titanium man . . .
And the crimson dynamo
Came along for the ride

We went to town with the library
And we swung all over that
Long tall bank in the main street

Well there she were and to my despair
Shes a five-star criminal
Breaking the code

Magneto said now the time come
To gather our forces and run!!!
Oh no . . . . . .
This cant be so . . . . . .

And then it occurred to me!

You couldnt be bad
Magneto was mad!
Titanium too!
And the crimson dynamo
Just couldnt cut it no more
You were the law . . . . . .
