The Lyrics

Something funny I always think of when I hear this song, crooks being inept in this instance
Now then I told the crooks with me
You have to pick some real tough locks
Safes hidden behind paintings
You just can’t let them make you stop
Store owner’s got his Cadillac
Old geezer with a coupe de ville
The money was a-hiding
Beneath the restaurant grill
Really can’t pick it
Locked the Cashbox, locked the cashbox
Really don't like it
Locked the cashbox, Locked the cashbox

By order of the big boss
We’re robbing every place
We’ll break in through the window
And when we’ll crack the safe
But now we are stumped they bought a real complicated lock
The local store has now really cleaned our clock
As soon as the Sheriff was notified
They began to wail

Sheriff might catch us
Take the cashbox, take the cashbox
Sheriff won't like it
Missing cashbox, Missing cashbox

Now, over at gas station
Oh, we really got them good
Always try to keep cool
And do stuff as we should
But the wind has changed direction
Still can’t open the cashbox
Oh, what do we do
Where is dynamite stocked?

They did a good job
Locked the cashbox, locked the cashbox
No one can pick it
Locked the cashbox, Locked the cashbox

The cops called up helicopters
They said we’ll get you someday
But I think he’s like Chief Wiggum
And we will get our way

As soon as the Sheriff was chauffeured outta there
Helicopters circled the city everywhere
Oh but we were hiding out down in our lair
Helicopters gave up

We still can’t pick it
Locked the cashbox, locked the cashbox
Can’t call a locksmith
Locked the cashbox, Locked the cashbox

Sheriff don't like it, he will never catch us
Locked the cashbox, locked the cashbox
Really don't like it, Oh why can’t we go and break it
Locked the cashbox, Locked the cashbox

there was a commercial a while back, where nobody understood the lyrics of the OS. singing things like "Rock the Catbox" and such. this was a clever idea in that vein! 455
