Jewel thief where do you get all those pretty necklaces?
Jewel thief where do you get all those pretty rings?
Jewel thief where do you get all those silve pistols?
Jewel thief where do you get all those animal heads?

With lovely posture you eat bread
Carefully chewing when they shot you dead

You look like a mannequin with your mouth full
Don't worry baby, I'll take care of you

You got a million horses at your door
You got a feeling that you'll need a million more
I got a million horses of my own
In the evening one by one they carry me home

I'll get your telephone i'll run a comb
Through your dead thief hair
Tell them you're not home
I'll wear your pretty clothes
And shoot your stolen guns

Jewel thief, you and I are gonna be best friends

You got a million horses at your door
You got a feeling that you'll need a million more
I got a million horses of my own
In the evening one by one they carry me home
They carry me home
They carry me home

    General CommentIt sounds to me like it's a chickens coming home to roost over colonialism. I could be reading too much into it, but I love that interpretation coming from a family that endured the hell of colonialism.
