The Lyrics

Rip knife—someone sliced while I’s sleepin',
Walkin’ through the house, softly creepin’
Screen door considerably weakened.

Well, they stole piano
And somehow they got it through the screen door.
Don’t know how they did it. . .
Through that sliced-up slot made in the screen door.
No problem. . .they went in,
But how’d they get it out through the ripped screen door?

Not one trace that someone had been there
Except, nothing now is left in there;
There is not even any gin there.

Can’t be highball reapin’
’cause they had out schlepped booze through the screen door.
Now my home is empty—
Naught to laugh about; in fact, I scream more.
All I want to do is kill the crafty lout who sliced the screen door.

With knife, I go slice while they’re sleepin’,
Walking through the house, softly creepin’. . .
Steal more than these folks could be keepin’.

JAB - I really like your version of this fine and fun old song. Your take is about robbery while mine was about indecent exposure. I guess you could say we both are now in The Doors! ;D

The ingenuity of thieves is amazing sometimes. If someone broke into my place and trashed it, it could be months before I realized it. Wouldn't be so bad if I could be there to tell them which stuff to take. Anybody need a thousand LP records and 500 VHS tapes?
