Stealin' lyrics
Saturday, April 22, 2006
Listen

I've traveled round this country, just to see what traveling means
But I just couldn't stay away from the land of corn and beans.
You don't believe I love you, look at the fool I've been
Better believe I'm happy, back where my world begins.

Stealin, stealin, pretty mama won't you welcome me
I'm stealin back to where I used to be.

Well I ate in lots of restaurants, that were Greek and French and Thai
But I couldn't wait to come back home for a piece of rhubarb pie
You don't believe I love you, look what a fool I've been
Better believe I'm happy, back where my world begins.

I have tasted of their tiramisu and their crème brulee
And I prefer Jell-O with sliced oranges anyday

I have been to West Palm Beach and to Caroline
But Minnesota is the home of the World's Largest Ball of Twine

I have been to Tuscany, and the valley of the Rhone
But have you ever seen the prairie between Marshall and Pipestone
