It's from the movie, "Melvin Purvis, G-Man." When Melvin Purvis breaks into Machine Gun Kelly's room, Kelly says, "Don't shoot, G-man!" And Purvis, around his cigar, says, "G-man? Government man. I like that. Mr. Hoover will like that." For some reason, it made me giggle, so I use it. >Steve, may I post this on my filk website? By all means.
