What is not, not to like, a shiny bike
no lock, no key... It's there for me
it's for real, I'm gonna steal a pair of wheels
FSU... Now you can too

I know soon that someone else
will claim my new bike for themselves
Waiting for their lucky day
to make a speedy getaway

I am a bike thief...

Our friend the dane, he does the same,
no lock, no chain
he rides around ...all over town
to travel far, without a car, he pedals hard
so join the fun...you could have one

want to get from here to there
a bike can take me anywhere
it's not mine, but I don't care
I've had enough of playing fair

I'm riding free
so come with me
we'll be carefree
say it with me

I am a bike thief...

Scope it out, you'll be without the slightest doubt
you want it now, I'll show you how
go down tonite, the time is right, it's in your sights
and if you dare, it's sitting there

I know soon that someone else
will claim my new bike for themselves
waiting for their lucky day
to make a speedy getaway
want to get from here to there
a bike can take me anywhere
it's not mine, but I don't care
I've had enough of playing fair

I am a bike thief...

    General CommentI think this song is mainly self-explanatory, but to note something that was recently clarified in the Freezepop Yahoo group - FSU is a gang in the Boston area, and it stands for "Fuck Shit Up".

    General Commentits about trying to sound tough, but really you arent.

    a theif ,yes. but a BIKE theif, not so good, in the gang world.

    its about innocence. like, you think you're rough and tough, but the only thing you are stealing is bikes. and that is unimpressive.

    freezepop foreverr :D

    I go to FSU (Florida State) and a lot of bikes are stolen. When I heard this song I went... did it just say? But if it's a gang in Boston, then okay, hah.
