This song’s about a cheater
named DI Tom Snook
He up and took a flyer
Left me the fall-guy on the hook
First off you need to know
my skill set’s robbing banks
They say you reap and sow
well this cell is no great thanks
I heard “incarceration”
why was I the one at fault?
I received the combination
all I did was rob the vault
I memorized the clicks
and slipped inside one night
It was left sixty-six
fifty-one to the right
Yeah, I remembered all the clicks
and gave the safe some light
It was left sixty-six
and fifty-one to the right
But I fumbled at the crime scene
left behind a partial print
If I’d only kept it clean
there'd be no second stint
I was unaware Tom Snook
had sat me on a tee
'Cause that self-righteous crook
set me up you see

That the press knew was funny
next thing they're on my tail
What good are bags of money
when you're fast-tracked to jail?
I memorized the clicks
and slipped inside one night
It was left sixty-six
fifty-one to the right
Yeah, I remembered all the clicks
and gave the safe some light
It was left sixty-six
and fifty-one to the right
Detective Tom
do you sleep well
every night in bed?
Or does knowing
I’ll get out some day
play inside your head?
Nobody here
pays any heed
to a single word I say.
But I‘ll come knocking
on your door
one cold and frosty day

Snook quickly grabbed the loot
swore it somehow vanished
With no chance to dispute
I was locked up and banished
Don’t dare say you wouldn’t
Detective Inspector
You make me look like a student
see yourself as a professor
I hear now you've retired
somewhere outside Boulder
When my time here expires
start lookin’ over your shoulder
I memorized the clicks
and slipped inside one night
It was left sixty-six
fifty-one to the right
Yeah, I remembered all the clicks
and gave the safe some light
It was left sixty-six
and fifty-one to the right
