Yiddish: If a thief has nothing to steal, he steals from one pocket to another.

אַז אַ גנבֿ האָט ניט וואָס צו גנבֿענען גנבֿעט ער פֿון איין קעשענע אין דער צווייטער.

Az a ganef hot nit vos tsu ganvenen, ganvet er fun eyn keshene in der tsveyter.

If a thief has nothing to steal, he steals from one pocket to another.
