"The Thief" as written by and Alec Wilder Norman Gimbel....
I'm nobody nobody knows
But somebody somebody was
I slipped into town on the four fifteen
Sight unseen
I take what I want and I don't play clean
And I mean

I walk on the tips of my toes
So nobody knows when I'm near
A fool in the job when the streets are dark
I'm a shark
I'm slick and I'm quick and to make it free
I'm a thief

One unguarded moment gave me my start
Then on unguarded moment
I stole her heart
I'm parked on the outskirts of town
She knows that I won't leave alone

And I never knew I would see the day
Crime would pay
'Cause I'm the thief who stole her heart away
Yes I'm the thief who stole her heart away
