The Lyrics

[If you're not already familiar with the Sly Cooper video games, you can get summaries of the plots and charcters on the franchise's Wikipedia page here.]

This month, the North American release of the first Sly Cooper game celebrates its 15th anniversary, so I figured I'd submit a parody about the franchise for the occasion. My original idea was to do one song for each of the original three games, but I wasn't happy with how my parody about the first game turned out, and I couldn't come up with one about 'Honor Among Thieves' I really liked, so that left this one that I wrote for 'Band Of Thieves', which I figured could stand on its own. Enjoy!
[Spoken intro: clip from the "tango" scene]

[Sly: "Miss Fox, I believe you owe me a dance?"]
[Carmelita: "About time. I thought you had left.."]
[Sly: "Just waiting for the perfect moment."]

I'm from a long, long line of master thieves
Our tricks kept in a book with many leaves
One night some villains came, my folks were offed
And at the local orph'nage, I was dropped

Met my two best friends; the rest is history
Now, each caper's one for all and all for three
Taking back the Clockwerk parts from Jean Bison
Plus Dimitri, the Contessa, and Rajan

As I thieve and go
I thieve and go
Spire Jump and Rail Slide as I thieve and go
I thieve and go
I thieve and go
Jump and hit the circle as I thieve and go

Back at the safehouse in Paris, France
We plan out what to steal and when's our chance
Then I make moves on our Inspector Fox
Gosh, I'm so suave--
[Dimitri: "Bro, you're a cracker box!"]

Never gonna give my life of crime a rest
Robbing other robbers is what I do best
Tearing down the highway doing 85
Think I made an error letting Bentley drive

As we thieve and go
We thieve and go
Chased by all the cruisers as we thieve and go
We thieve and go
We thieve and go
Nearly missing streetlights as we thieve and go

[Instrumental bridge, with the clip of your choice playing over it]

I thieve and go
I thieve and go
Picking henchmen's pockets as I thieve and go
I thieve and go
I thieve and go
Family book has everything I need to know

I thieve and go
I thieve and go
Here comes the Inspector, boys, we need to go
I thieve and go
I thieve and go
Start the credits rolling 'cause we need to go
