The Lyrics

ever had to deal with a crooked employee? the unfortunate bloke in this song has!
you want to find That Crooked Thief?
he took off just last weekend, now after we had a beef
That Crooked Thief Doesn't Work For Me Anymore
And That Crooked Thief's Likely Robbing A Corner Store
so if you've got some things you'd like to lose
let him steal from you

he stole my bottled wine, my wheel of brie
he stole my baby blue curtains and all my cutlery
That Crooked Thief Left Me Feeling Pitiful
And That Crooked Thief Means Bad Dreams That Are Coming True
he'd steal our eyes if we did not have eyelids
if there's value, hide it!

That Crooked Thief Left Me Feeling Pitiful
And That Crooked Thief Means Bad Dreams That
Are Coming True
he'd steal our eyes if we did not have eyelids
if there's value, hide it!

That Crooked Thief Doesn't Work For Me Anymore
And That Crooked Thief's Likely Robbing A Corner Store
so if you've got some ugly stuff to lose
let him steal from you

That Crooked Thief Doesn't Work For Me Anymore
And That Crooked Thief's Likely Robbing A Corner Store
so if you've got some stuff to dump... (fade out.)
thanks for reading!

Couldn't help but notice your preoccupation with thieves these days. What gives? Also, what is this Southern Comfort eggnog? Never heard of it.

You always have to be pre-occupied by thieves, Justin. Otherwise, they'll rob you blind
