lyrics

I’m sick of hearing curses cast upon this town.
Well, if you don’t mind, keep your grumbles down.
Listen up and let me make my case.
‘Cause, if you’re not shaping the institutions,
if you’re not searching for new solutions,
then maybe you can take some of the blame.

And, I know what’s lurking out of sight.
Oh, they say the city’s filled with vice.
Well, if we can’t keep it clean, at least they can pay the fee.
So, among thieves in the night,
just out of the city lights,
you can find a den of sin, but not a one that don’t know me.
Among thieves.

And, I’m feeling like an old man now,
24 years of standing at the helm
and 40 years running in this river town.
You can call me “Crooked Neck,” call me “Old Ed,”
but don’t you got go calling me a gangster’s pawn instead.
I’m the one who took out the trash and kept you fed.

And, I know what’s lurking out of sight.
Oh, they say the city’s filled with vice.
Well, if we can’t keep it clean, at least they can pay the fee.
So, among thieves in the night,
just out of the city lights,
you can find a den of sin, but not a one that don’t know me.
Yeah, among thieves in the night,
just out of the city lights,
you can find a den of sin, but not a one that don’t know me.
And, I know what’s lurking out of sight.
And, they say the city’s filled with vice.
Well, I’m not a fool like Fischer, so let me be.
Among thieves.
