could help me out with some lyrics eric-i love this song- put ?s with words i couldnt understand

two thieves

one was from the east
the other from the west
and i dont claim to know either one of them the best
but i know a good man when i see one

your humor just as black
as the bruises on your arm
what you lacked in skill
you made up for with your charm
you said it was just a ?

but if the two of you had met
both your mothers would have wept
two peas in a pod
or just two thieves on the nile

you stole your education
while the students were asleep
you wrapped the history up in blankets
and sank it in the deep
you said whats safe was worth ?

you were my ambassador
to a world ?
bad luck on your side
you unshaved and dirty hair
but i know all i see is my own reflection

if the two of you had met
both your mothers would have wept
two peas in a pod
oh just two thieves on the nile

they twitch and they wink
? we are thick as theives
would you empty out my wallet and my ashtray as you leave
did you forget that i was your only friend

two months on the road
i dont know how to say goodbye
maybe i should bury all those memories of you
but i dont ever want to see them die

if the two of you had met
both your mothrs would have met
two peas in a pod
or just two thieves on the nile

missing some of the words- where there are ?s- but if you would check the entire song-

this is one damn fine song- truly rich- what was your inspiration?

As you're pretty close, I'll just write the parts you got wrong or couldn't figure out. Here are the lines you need:
"but I know an angle man when I see one"

"you said, knowledge is just some new infection"
"or just two theives on a nod"
"you said, one good save was worth perfection"
"to a world that didn't care"
"mirrored shades and dirty hair, when I look all I see is my own reflection"
"with a twitch and a wink
you assure me we are thick as thieves, then you empty out my wallet and my ashtray as you leave, did you forget that I was your only friend?"

hope that helps -Greg
