Besides the fact that panhandling’s apparently a crime
Lucky PD of NY decided to let him slide
Could’ve collared his behind and made him pay a fine
Before he came and started whining, everything was fine

Meaning

Panhandling is illegal in most states. It’s punishable by a fine, however cops don’t really enforce it, because the homeless obviously aren’t capable of paying the fine.
