The Lyrics

Don't be stealing money, folks.
I woke up one morning,
And the sun came up.
Put on my shoes, and outside I went.
I looked around, and in total shock,
The thief took cash and then ran away!

Hey, do not be stealing (do not be stealing)
Stealing is no good in this city (do not be stealing)
They'll put you in prison (do not be stealing)
'til you learn to never be a thief.
You gotta learn to never be a thief.

Don't steal the money from that big bank,
They'll send you to jail where you're doing time.
It's against the law, and I know it all.
I keep all my cash in my piggy bank.

Hey, do not be stealing (do not be stealing)
Stealing is no good in this city (do not be stealing)
They'll put you in prison (do not be stealing)
'til you learn to never be a thief.
You gotta learn to never be a thief.

When I'm lazy, and feeling bored,
I spend some of my money, for things I'll eat.
And go to the store to get some food.
Don't take my cash, and then run away!
Don't run away!

Hey, do not be stealing (do not be stealing)
Stealing is no good in this city (do not be stealing)
They'll put you in prison (do not be stealing)
'til you learn to never be a thief.
