Lyrics

That’s me in the dead of night

With a rusty hairpin and an old flashlight

Walking in through your front door

I’m looking for the country’s money

The tallest fences I have scaled

In and out you know I never fail

Sitting in your backyard in Rosedale

I’m looking for the country’s money

I’m a modern day robin hood

Doing brave deeds for the common good

In our finest neighbourhoods

I’m fighting the worst pollution

Uneven power distribution

And I’ve got my own solution for it

Walking down the Bridal Path

Looking for that secret stash

Leaving with sacks full of cash

I’m looking for the country’s money

Searching for that golden pot

Of piles of money that’s been left to rot

Sometimes you’re home, sometimes you’re not

When I’m looking for the country’s money

And I’m not going to stop

I’m reaching for the top

And I’m not going to stop
