Oh, Jawbone, when did you first go wrong?
Oh, Jawbone, where is it you belong?

A three-time loser, you'll never learn
Lay down your tools before you burn
Ya keep on runnin' and hidin' your face
Spreadin' your heat all over the place

I'm a thief, and I dig it!
Up on a reef, I'm gonna rig it!
I'm a thief, and I dig it!

Oh, Jawbone, why don't ya sit and moan?
Oh, Jawbone, you know that it's stone for stone

Sneak through the night up on your toes
To look in your eye, it never shows
Your name up on the post office wall
Puts you on edge 'cause they wrote it too small

I'm a thief, and I dig it!
Up on a reef, 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 ya land right back in the tank!

I'm a thief, and I dig it!
I'm up on a reef, 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' and goin' out on the lam
Ya 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!
Up on a reef, I'm gonna rig it!
I'm a thief, and I dig it!
