The Lyrics

I steal, grifty am I; shifty,
fingers swifty and lifty and light.
It’s a miffed spree
victims feel when they have learned their plight.

First I charm them,
then disarm them.
They’re alarmed when the harm becomes real.
I’m so grifty
that I get hard every time I steal.

Me, a grifty churl who can fleece the squares…
I can pick pockets easily.
Got no shifty face,
I don’t sh*tty-dress,
never shifty-smile.
Then my grifting spree!

My steals, cunning,
fingers dancing
through their purses an’ pants an’ much more.
Oh, I love
being grifty, making a score!
