Lyrics
Sha, la, la, la, la, la, baby
Sha, la, la, la, la, la
Sha, la, la, la, la, la, baby
Sha, la, la, la, la, la

Girls, beware of the bandit
From Westchester County
I can’t offer you no reward
Cause all he left me was a broken heart
He kidnapped me excitingly
And then he robbed me off my dignity
And when enough of his time had spent
He left me  (sha, la, la, la, la)
Moaning, yeah  (sha, la, la, la, la)
He left me  (sha, la, la, la, la)
Moan, moaning, babe, yes it is, eh  (sha, la, la, la, la)

Be careful, my sisters, yeah
He’s armed with an innocent smile
With a dangerous love record
That can stretched for miles and miles
Hey girls, take a hint
He don’t leave no fingerprints
And if he catch his hands on you, he’s gonna be
Moaning  (sha, la, la, la, la)
Yes he will, and he’ll leave you  (sha, la, la, la, la)
Moan, moaning  (sha, la, la, la, la)
Oh, yeah, yeah  (sha, la, la, la, la)

Any female information
Concerned in this bandit person
He may be sitting right next to you
And what’s just the County is right there too
Hey girls, I got a confession to make
If they put that bandit in jail
I’ll be the first one to go on his mail, he left me
Moaning, oh yeah  (sha, la, la, la, la)
I’m the wanted woman, and see me  (sha, la, la, la, la)
He left me moaning, oh, yeah  (sha, la, la, la, la)
Sha, la, baby, yeah, and it’s all about this  (sha, la, la, la, la)

Sha, la, la, la, la, auh
Sha, la, la, la, la, ah, ah, ah
Sha, la, la, la, la, ooh, baby
Sha, la, la, la, la, ah, ah, ah

Sha, la, la, la, la, look so good to me baby
Sha, la, la, la, la, ah, ah, ah
Sha, la, la, la, la, auh, baby
Sha, la, la, la, la, ah, ah, ah

Sha, la, la, la, la, he’s branded for good
Sha, la, la, la, la, he tell the truth to you all
Sha, la, la, la, la, hey, gone for me
Sha, la, la, la, la, ah, ah, ah

Sha, la, la, la, la, ooh, Good God Almighty
Sha, la, la, la, la, ah, ah, ah

Català – El Bandit Sha-La
Sha, la, la, la, la, la, noi
Sha, la, la, la, la, la
Sha, la, la, la, la, la, noi
Sha, la, la, la, la, la

Noies, aneu amb compte amb el bandit
Del Comtat de Westchester
No puc oferir-vos cap recompensa
Perquè tot el que em va deixar és un cor trencat
Em va segrestar de manera excitant
I tot seguit em va robar la dignitat
I quan ja havia passat prou temps
Em va deixar  (sha, la, la, la, la)
Gemegant, sí  (sha, la, la, la, la)
Em va deixar  (sha, la, la, la, la)
Gemec, gemegant, noi, sí, és així, eh  (sha, la, la, la, la)

Aneu amb compte, germanes meves, sí
Va armat amb un somriure innocent
Amb un perillós historial d’amors
Que es pot estendre per milles i milles
Ei noies, doneu-vos per al·ludides
No deixa empremtes dactilars
I si posa les seves mans en tu, ell estarà
Gemegant  (sha, la, la, la, la)
Sí, ho farà, i et deixarà  (sha, la, la, la, la)
Gemec, gemegant  (sha, la, la, la, la)
Oh, sí, sí  (sha, la, la, la, la)

Tota informació femenina
Relativa a aquesta persona bandida
Pot estar assegut al teu costat
I no és només al Comtat, és just allà també
Ei noies, he de fer-vos una confessió
Si posen aquest bandit a la presó
Seré la primera a anar al seu correu, em va deixar
Gemegant, oh sí  (sha, la, la, la, la)
Sóc la dona estimada, i mira’m  (sha, la, la, la, la)
Em va deixar gemegant, oh, sí  (sha, la, la, la, la)
Sha, la, noi, sí, i tot va de  (sha, la, la, la, la)

Sha, la, la, la, la, auh
Sha, la, la, la, la, ah, ah, ah
Sha, la, la, la, la, ooh, noi
Sha, la, la, la, la, ah, ah, ah

Sha, la, la, la, la, em sembla molt bé, noi
Sha, la, la, la, la, ah, ah, ah
Sha, la, la, la, la, auh, noi
Sha, la, la, la, la, ah, ah, ah

Sha, la, la, la, la, ell està marcat com a bo
Sha, la, la, la, la, us diu la veritat a totes
Sha, la, la, la, la, ei, per mi ha marxat
Sha, la, la, la, la, ah, ah, ah

Sha, la, la, la, la, ooh, bon Déu Totpoderós
Sha, la, la, la, la, ah, ah, ah
