The Bible says "Thou shalt not steal"
But it doesn't say you can't talk about stealing
Here are some words you might want to use
When talking 'bout stealing is how you're feeling

If you take money from your employer
That on the business was supposed to be spent
That is called embezzlement

If you steal someone else's work
And when the teacher asks "Is that yours?" You say "Yes'm"
What you've done is plagiarism

If you steal a thing that's worth so little
It's something that you couldn't even get a dollar bill for
What you did was pilfer

If you take a walk on someone else's property
You surely are encroaching
But if you hunt or fish while you are there
What you're doing is poaching

A conquering army swoops down like thunder
What they steal is called their plunder

There are many types of stealing and they're all wrong
To remember which is which just think of this song
