Now this is for amusement purposes only, ha
Be careful of your neighborhood pick-pocket
Me bredrin when them call name slick

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

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
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 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 
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
