Oh, we were both walking respectably,
Respectably, late at night,
With a diamond cutter I opened the glass window
And went right to work.
Oh, from the window right to the closet,
With a crowbar I knocked off the lock.,
When to my misfortune the fool watchman awoke,
Ands I was caught in the act. From there right to jail,
With handcuffs locking my hands;
I have lost my sweet freedom
And am burned up by my misfortune.
