We are happy-go-lucky Johnny-come-latelys
Millionaire beach boys in ten-cent shirts
And our pictures are in all the papers
We stole a stone, for what it's worth

We are jewel thieves
But we're such great guys
That it's hard to believe
We're so handsome they'll pay the ransom

We came in through an open window
Above suspicion, behind closed doors
We were double-crossed and we should have stayed single
But we messed around with square broads

We are jewel thieves
With our hands In our pockets
And our hearts on our sleeves
But when we were arrested we were bare-chested

Simple Simon says:
Put your hands in the air
Give back the diamond
We know it's here somewhere
You've committed a crime
And you're smiling like you don't care
