The Lyrics

This is based on "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves", one of the tales of Arabian nights. Though, it takes place in the present.
(Ali Baba shouts "Open Sesame!", then the drumming begins. Then, the music begins.)

Aou,
Aaa, haa, haa, haa, haa
Ooo

There is a gang
They're all so bad
They're always drivin' us mad
They're the forty thieves
They always terrify
And they all cheat, steal, and lie, ohh

They stole TVs
They stole our cars
They stole our money
And they used fires
To get our houses burned
But they should never return
When will they ever learn?

Forty thieves,
Oh, stealin' everything out of sight
Forty thieves,
Oh, they all got us homeless tonight

We picked up the phones
We called the cops
But those thieves never stop
Breakin' many laws
This world turned out so bad
It even hurts moms and dads

All this bullshit
Has got to end
At least by this weekend
We'll soon have things back
Including all our cars
Those thieves will be behind bars
In a prison so far

Forty thieves,
Oh, stealin' when they have no right
Forty thieves,
Oh, they will pay the price alright
Ohh
Yea, yea, yaa

Aaa, haa, haa, haa, haa
Forty thieves,
Oh, their crimes startin' to bite
Forty thieves,
Oh, stealin' every day and night
Forty thieves,
Oh, stealin' everything out of sight
Forty thieves,
Oh, they all got us homeless tonight
Ohh
Thought it'd be cool to do a parody of an '80s rock song about the Arabian nights.

Way to tell a story, raddog! I haven't read the story in a while since I was a kid and I almost forgotten all about it! There's also enough looting as it is near from where I live! 555's, no need to steal them!
