Thief

The Giving Tree Band - Vacilador

Featured on:

I’ve got you and you’ve got me

We’re so chained, we think we’re free

These things in life don’t have to be

Leave it to you to leave it to me

 

Money is funny and you say it’s a game

Where the winners and losers are all the same

Money is funny and you say it’s a joke

Well keep on laughing, we’ll all be broke

 

So I went down to the old race track

To see if I could win your money back

But I bet on a three-legged dog to bring it back home

And he just rolled like a rolling stone

 

No room for a thief in this place

He’ll steal that smile right from your face

Shows no remorse when he steals your gold

Don’t care if you’re rich, don’t care if you’re old

Like stealing candy from a baby’s mouth

The north wind blows and he’s headed south

 

I went home to see my kin

And let them know the shape I’m in

I can’t stand to see my momma cry

So you pushed me down and you kicked my eye

 

You know you can’t always get your way

You wanted to leave, but I wanted to stay

You know you can’t always get your way

You wanted to buy, but you didn’t want to pay

 

I’ve got you and you’ve got me

We’re so chained, we think we’re free

These things in life don’t have to be

Leave it to you to leave it to me

 

But I got no time so what can I do

Well, leave it to me to leave it to you
