Burgler's Paradise
(feat. Master Thiefsie G and the Keepa Krew)
By - Stapler Thief
(*sung to the tune of Gangster's Paradise, by Coolio*)

As I walk through an alley in the City of death
I take a look at my job
And realize there's nothing left
'Cause I've been killin' and stealin' so long
That even ol' Cutty thinks that my mind has gone
But I ain't never stole a dime cuz I didn't deserve it
Me be treated like a thief, you know that's unheard of
You betta watch how ya talking
And where ya walking
Or you with those Hammers might be lined in chalk

I really hate to quip but I gotta joke
As they croak, I see my bitter humor's been provoked,
Fool, I'm the kinda G that pocket pickers wanna be like
In the shadows of the night
Stayin' out of the the street lights

1-Been spending most my life
Living in a Burgler's Paradise (2)

Keep spending most my life
Living in a Burgler's paradise (2)

Look at the situation, they got me facing
I can't live a normal life, I was raised by the fold
So I gotta be down with the Keepers
All these friggin' glyph warnings, take away control
I'm a pessimistic sneak with money on my mind
Got my bow in my hand and a mechanical eye
I'm a Keeper cast-out, back-stabbing taffer
And there's shadows around so don't make me hafta
Fool, death ain't nothing but a foot step away
I'm living life snatch or run-a, what can I say?
I'm thirty-three now, but will I ever live to see thirty-four
The way this guy's playin' I don't know.

2-Tell me why are They so blind to see
All the doors They make, I still have the key
(rpt 1)

Weapons in the money, money in the goodies
Mission after mission, duty after duty
Everybody's guarding, but half of them ain't lookin'
I'm sneakin' in through the cistern
Another treasure tooken
They say I gotta learn
But nobody needs to lead me
If they can go and steal it, why do they need me?
I guess they do
Or they'd be through, I guess they're taffed
That's why I know my career's in luck, fool!
