Be careful of your neighborhood pick-pocket
Me bredrin when them call name slick

Your neighborhood pick-pocket no afraid fi talk it
Well who this come catch it the original finger smith
Your neighborhood pick-pocket no afraid fi talk it

Now
Hole heap a pocket weh him rob a hole heap a people him pick
Him pick bill fild, money bag, check and wallet
Hand bag and pocket book purse and make-up kit
In a woman bag him thief a lipstick
In a dread locks jacket him thief a chew stick
Behind him ears corner him the boy take a spliff
Him take three gembelin out a haggler basket
Take a tin a Vaseline out of a young girl pocket
Take ten pantyhose about eleven-teen slip
Take a gal teeth from under her top lip
Take off a gal hair and leave on the clip
Take off a guy shoes and leave the polish
Strip a gal naked and she don't even feel it
Who do it Mr, slick tuper tail bandit
Original finger smith from down in your district (boo)
That's why

Well who this come catch it the original finger smith
Your neighborhood pick-pocket no afraid fi talk it
Well who this come catch it the original finger smith
Your neighborhood pick-pocket no afraid fi talk it

What is his occupation a big finger smith
A pick pocket tycoon with a healthy profit
Number one in a the business top of the market
Him thief milk out of coffee and proud to say it
Him have him pick pocket school graduating class about one hundred and six
Teach the tricks and the trade and how to make it
And if you graduate first teach them the secret
That's why

Well who this come catch it the original finger smith
Your neighborhood pick-pocket no afraid fi talk it
Well who this come catch it the original finger smith
Your neighborhood pick-pocket no afraid fi talk it

Say him get up this morning at about quarter past six
And try fi get a bus fi go in a him district
A jolly bus draw down in the back where him sit
While the driver put on some reggae music
The money back jingle get him frantic
Him go in a him pocket take out him wallet
Pay him bus fair the ductress no give him no ticket
Him just walk down the corridor every pocket where him pick
Him step off a the bus him feel stylish
And then him feel a cool breeze just lick him private
Him look down de so oh shit
Is like I was a victim of a pick pocket

Them take off him pants and leave on the zip
Them take off him brief and leave the elastic
Take off him balls and leave hair pan it
And leave the two gin-gi fly them a pitch pan him dic
Dictionary speaking him couldn't believe it
That's why

Well who this come catch it the original finger smith
Your neighborhood pick-pocket no afraid fi talk it

Hole heap a pocket weh him rob a hole heap a people him pick
Him pick bill fild, money bag, check and wallet
Hand bag and pocket book purse and make-up kit
In a woman bag him thief a lipstick
In a dread locks jacket him thief a chew stick
Behind him ears corner him the boy take a splif
Him take three gembelin out a haggler basket
Take a tin a vaseline out of a young girl pocket
Take ten pantyhose about eleventeen slip
Take a gal teeth from under her top lip
Take off a gal hair and leave on the clip
Take off a guy shoes and leave the polish
Strip a gal naked and she don't even feel it
Who do it mr, slick tuper tail bandit
Original finger smith from down in your district (boo)
That's why

Well who this come catch it the original finger smith
Your neighborhood pick-pocket no afraid fi talk it
Well who this come catch it the original finger smith

Him have him pick pocket school graduating class about one hundred and six
Teach the tricks and the trade and how to make it
And if you graduate first teach them the secret
