Shoplifter you'll never learn
When you commit the crime
Shoplifter your getting burned
And now you gotta the time

It's a one, two, three on the felony
Well not everything is free
Now that you've served the community
It's a life of a petty thief

It's not considered stealing
Unless your getting caught
But you be caught stealing
Trying to take something you haven't got

Shoplifter you'll never learn
With lies behind your back
Not a burgular, or a bankrobber just a kleptomaniac

It's not considered stealing
Unless your getting caught
But you be caught stealing
Trying to take something you haven't got

Shoplifter you'll never learn
When you commit the crime
Shoplifter your getting burned
And now you gotta do the time
Well now you gotta do the time
Well now you gotta do some time
