Oh, Jawbone, when did you first go wrong?
Oh, Jawbone, where is it you belong?
Three time looser, you'll never learn
Lay down your tools before you burn
You keep on runnin' and hidin' your face
Spreadin' your heat all over the place

I'm a thief and I dig it
Upon a beef, I'm gonna rig it
I'm a thief and I dig it

Oh, Jawbone, why don't you sit and moan?
Oh, Jawbone, you know that it's stone for stone
Sneak through the night upon your toes
To look in your eye, it never shows
Your name upon the post office wall
Put you on edge 'cause they wrote it too small

I'm a thief and I dig it
Upon a beef, I'm gonna rig it
I'm a thief and I dig it

Oh, Jawbone, revenge stays on your mind
Oh, Jawbone, you been doin' too much time
Pull off a job with an inside man
Who needs the cash and likes your plan
Then you will know just who to thank
When you land right back in the tank

I'm a thief and I dig it
I'm upon a beef, I'm gonna rig it
I'm a thief and I dig it

Oh, Jawbone, why don't you go on home?
Oh, Jawbone, where is it you belong?
Boostin', goin' out on the Lam
You know that you'll steal anything that you can
Temptation stands just behind that door
So what you wanna go and open it for?

I'm a thief and I dig it
Upon a beef, I'm gonna rig it
I'm a thief and I dig it
