Well, put your arms around me like the circles in the sun
I want you to love me daddy like my easy rider done.
If you don't believe that I love you, look what a fool I've been,
If you don't think I'm sinking, look what a hole I'm in.

I'm stealin', stealin', pretty mama don't you tell on me,
I'm stealin' back my same old used-to-be.

Well, I got a little woman, 'bout my height and size,
Now she's a married woman, sees me once in a while.
If you don't believe I love you, look what a fool I've been
If you don't think I'm sinking, look what a hole I'm in.

Stealin', stealin', pretty mama don't you tell on me,
I'm stealin' back my same old used-to-be.

With good whiskey you stay drunk all the time,
Stay drunk baby 'cause it eases my mind.
If you don't believe that I love you, look what a fool I've been,
If you don't think I'm sinking, look what a hole I'm in.

I'm stealin', stealin', pretty mama don't you tell on me
I'm stealin' right back my same old used-to-be
