Hennepin County Pickpockets

This song is about the Four Horsemen of Larceny on the Hennepin County Board.

PICKPOCKETS
music and lyrics by Eskit

Batter UP!

Three of the Hennepin County Commissioners --
They grovel and suck up whenever they can.
Yes, three of the Hennepin County Commissioners
came up with a devious stadium plan.

Their ... plan ... was ...

Grab your wallet
Pick your pocket
Take your money and run.
"That's Okay" (That's what they say)
"As long as it's for fun."

Fun for the jet set, and you bet that Pohlad family:
They think it's great -- they celebrate -- they stick it to you and me.


Now that Pickpocket Opat -- he's no dope -- that Opat knows his friends.
A favor here, a favor there, and wow! it never ends.
Just bow down to the money downtown and then one sunny day
The Star Tribune will sing a tune that "Opat -- he's OK"

'Cause ... he ... will ...

Grab your wallet
Pick your pocket
Take your money and run.
"That's Okay" (That's what they say)
"As long as it's for fun."

Fun for the jet set, and you bet that Pohlad family:
They think it's great -- they celebrate -- they stick it to you and me.

Now that Pickpocket Stenglein thinks he's in line for some gratitude.
They were lookin' for a cash cow, and then he mooed.
"The Money" said "Honey, this just ain't funny" and so a plan was hatched:
He got our stash -- he gave 'em cash -- no strings attached.

He ... learned ... to ....

Grab your wallet
Pick your pocket
Take your money and run.
"That's Okay" (That's what they say)
"As long as it's for fun."

Fun for the jet set, and you bet that Pohlad family:
They think it's great -- they celebrate -- they stick it to you and me.

Now that Pickpocket Peter -- he's a big moskeeter -- he'll bite you in the butt.
(That Peter McLaughlin ever so often acts like a nut)
Democracy, I guarantee, puts him in a mood:
He stole our vote (that's all she wrote)
and then we all got screwed.

Watch out ... all you taxpayers in Hennepin County ... he'll

Grab your wallet
Pick your pocket
Take your money and run.
"That's OK" (That's what they say)
"As long as it's for fun."

Fun for the jet set, and you bet that Pohlad family:
They think it's great -- they celebrate -- they stick it to you and me.

THEY STUCK IT TO YOU AND ME!

Yer OUT!!
