Thief in the Night

We were good friends, I shared everything
But cheating with my guy, well that really stings
Gonna make you both wish you'd never been born
'Cause hell has no fury like a woman scorned.

If you're takin' my man, I'll take you out
Maybe ruin your life, but there's just no doubt
When I'm through with him, they'll be nothing for you
But a flat-broke loser without a clue.

You're a thief in the night
And you know it ain't right
You took him from me
Now you're gonna be
In the middle of a fight
You're a thief in the night
And your future's not bright
Gonna mess up your day
Nothin' more I can say
You're a thief in the night

So he likes his women wearing cheap perfume
And riding around on a witch's broom
But guess who's gonna have the last laugh
'Cause all you did was take out my trash

After what you did you deserve each other
So he's out of my life, yeah I kicked him to the gutter
I've got a new guy, and we're movin' on
Better stay away from us or I'll color you gone.
