Stealing A Song Is Wrong       © John Birch 2010       guitar-tired

 

I sat down last night

Something I was doing was not right

Stealing a song is wrong.

Stealing a song is wrong.

 

I turned off the light

Something I was doing was not right

Stealing a song is wrong.

Stealing a song is wrong.

 

My girl she said “Goodbye”

She said “Goodbye” today

She said, “I think you’re wrong”

“Stealing a song is wrong.”

 

I walk down the street

Ev’ryone I meet

Seems to say to me

“Can’t you see?”

 

“Stealing a song is wrong.”

 

Stealing a song is wrong.

Stealing a song is wrong.

Stealing a song is wrong.

Stealing a song is wrong.

 

I lay down my head

But something is always wrong with the bed

I turn off the light

I turn on the light

 

I turn off the light

But something I am doing is not right

Stealing a song is wrong.

Stealing a song is wrong.

 

I wish I knew a way

To make these blues go away

I lay down at night

But there will be no sleep again tonight

 

Stealing a song is wrong.

 

I walk down the street

Ev’ryone I meet

Seems to say to me

“Can’t you see?”

 

“Stealing a song is wrong.”
