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
