"Get off my premises before I call the police," the farmer told the boys.

Is 'before' correctly used in the sentence? I feel it should be 'or' OR 'or else'.

Thanking in advance.

That's a very common way to say something.

Knock it off before you really piss me off.

I'd better go before I get myself in trouble.

(If you don't leave, I'll call the police; If you don't knock it off, I'll get really pissed off; If I don't go, I'll myself in trouble.)

Go away before I call the police.

Go away or (else) I'll call the police.
Neither of these would be found in a passage written in formal English. At least I can't imagine an essay, news article, or scientific paper that would contain the idea of threatening to call the police -- unless it was quoted, of course.
Both expressions are in the same neutral register, however. Neither is particularly more or less formal than the other.

Thanks, GG.

Is 'or' OR 'or else' the better choice in place of 'before'?

Thanks again.
Or I will... is fine.

Hi GG

Sorry to ask the same question again.

Go away before I call the police.

Go away or else I call the police.

I wanted to know whether 'or esle' is better than 'before' in formal English. Sorry for being not clearer earlier.
