Hey, can I borrow that?
I promise I'll give it back next time.
But take a good look at it, you'll never see it again.
I'll steal anything just as long as it's collectible.
But if you steal something better than me,
I'll turn you in.
Yes, we are record thieves.
Existing to please ourselves.
If you invite us in, keep watch on you record shelves.
If we can't have it, no one can.
So if you have something we want,
We'll ask to borrow it for "just a few days."
And forevermore it will be gone.
Hey be careful when you pick that up.
Don't get fingerprints on the cover - that album is rare.
Oh, what? That's yours?
Oh yeah, I borrowed it a year ago.
So go ahead and thrash it, ya know I don't really care.
