​The Best Jewel Thief In The World

This song is by Prefab Sprout and appears on the album Crimson/Red (2013).

Masked and dressed In black,
You scramble over rooftops
Carrying a bag
A bag marked "SWAG"
You're the best jewel thief in the world

Vigilance is lax.
Security complacent;
Adjacent to the gem,
The diadem, the pearl
Is the best jewel thief in the world

Watch your legend grow
The rooftops are for dreamers
You strike and then return Lucerne - Heathrow
The best jewel thief in the world

Down below, down below
What do any of those losers know?
Down below, down below
What do any of those assholes know?
Even so, even so,
Be a Buddhist, boy, and let it go
Even so, even so,
Be a Catholic boy and let it go
You're the best jewel thief in the world

Sirens moan and drone. They groan,
But Interpol can't catch you
Their cameras only show a screen of snow
Ergo -
You're the best jewel thief In the world

Down below, down below
What do any of those losers know?
Down below, down below
What do any of those assholes know?
Even so, even so,
Be a Buddhist, boy, and let it go
Even so, even so,
Be a Catholic boy and let it go
You're the best jewel thief in the world

Nimble as a cat
They hope your luck deserts you
They're sharpening their knives,
But you've nine lives!
You're the best jewel thief in the world

Watch your legend grow,
Watch your legend grow
Watch your legend grow,
You're the best jewel thief in the world
