Peter Wolf - Thick as Thieves

Butchers walking down the street
Thinking I'm a piece of meat
They'd like to hang me on a hook
Cut me up and call the cook
Keep them bastards 'way from me
I'm getting sick of thieves

Every monkey in the tree
Thick as thieves, thick as thieves
Wants his coconuts for free
Thick as thieves, thick as thieves

Never seen no monkey yet
Making good on any debt
Time to pay and they forget
I'm getting sick of thieves


Known a lot of ladies fair
Swear I was an answered prayer
Now time gets tough and they get gone
They take you there as George Washington
Try to keep you on your knees
I'm getting sick of thieves, yeah

Ali Baba, I believe
Thick as thieves, thick as thieves
Had to deal with forty thieves
Thick as thieves, thick as thieves

When you think your work is done
Here comes number forty-one
Always something up their sleeves
I'm getting sick of thieves

I'm getting sick of thieves
I'm getting sick of thieves, yeah
