Here we go now! 
I'm a villain, I'm a rogue 
I'll nick your wallet or garden gnome
I'm a burglar, I'm a cad
An open window, I'm in your home 

I'll have your tools or kiddies toys
And I'm not safe - a joy of joys
I'll be the gas man or a toad
I'll have your telly or garden hose 

 While I'm scoping in the dark
I'll strap your dog so he won't bark
I won't disturb your only dreams 
But if you wake up, there's no screams 

I'll nick anything removable
From the QE2 to the toilet paper in the houses of parliament 
I'll even have the milk off your doorstep 
Or the skin off a baby seal's back 

'Cause I'm a real villain (played backwards) 
I'll steal the paper or the milk
Or warn your neighbor's or the bill
I'm a stealer, I'm a crook 
Read about me in Mich's book 

 Burglary is a life for me
 Burglary is a life for me
 People say that crime don't pay
I drink champagne every day 

And the good Lord said "thou shall not steal"
 There is only one path and that is the straight and narrow 
It's a bit too bleeding straight and a bit too narrow for my liking 

Okay, gov, it's a fair cop
 Throw on the bracelets 
Chink, chink, oh god, I'm nicked 

I sentence you to six months 
Take him away
