Food, glorious food!

 

Is it worth the waiting for?

If we live 'til eighty four

All we ever get is gruel!

Ev'ry day we say our prayer --

Will they change the bill of fare?

Still we get the same old gruel!

There's not a crust, not a crumb can we find,

Can we beg, can we borrow, or cadge,

But there's nothing to stop us from getting a thrill

When we all close our eyes and imagine

 

Food, glorious food!

Hot sausage and mustard!

While we're in the mood - cold jelly and custard!

Peas, pudding and saveloys!

What next is the question?

Rich gentlemen have it, boys - Indigestion!

Food, glorious food!

We're anxious to try it.

Three banquets a day - Our favourite diet!

Just picture a great big steak - Fried, roasted or stewed.

Oh, food, Wonderful food, Marvellous food, Glorious food.

 

Food, glorious food!

What is there more handsome?

Gulped, swallowed or chewed -

Still worth a king's ransom!

What is it we dream about?

What brings on a sigh?

Piled peaches and cream, about six feet high!

Food, glorious food!

Eat right through the menu.

Just loosen your belt two inches and then you

Work up a new appetite.

In this interlude -

Then food,

Once again, food, Fabulous food, Glorious food.

 

Food, glorious food!

Don't care what it looks like – Burned! Underdone! Crude!

Don't care what the cook's like.

Just thinking of growing fat - Our senses go reeling

One moment of knowing that full-up feeling!

Food, glorious food!

What wouldn't we give for that extra bit more

That's all that we live for

Why should we be fated to do nothing but brood

On food, Magical food, Wonderful food, Marvellous food, Fabulous food, Beautiful food, Glorious food

Oliver

For what you are about to receive

May the lord make you truly thankful.

[BOYS]

[OLIVER]

[spoken] Please, Sir, I want some more.

[MR. BUMBLE]

[spoken] What?!

[OLIVER]

[spoken] Please, Sir, I want some more.

[MR. BUMBLE]

[MR. BUMBLE]

Wait!

Before we put the lad to task

May I be so curious as to ask his name?

[BOYS (whispering)]

O-li-ver.

 

Oliver! Oliver!

Never before has a boy wanted more!

Oliver! Oliver!

Won't ask for more when he knows what's in store.

There a dark, thin, winding stairway

Without any banister

Which we'll throw him down, and feed him on

Cockroaches served in a canister

Oliver! Oliver!

What will he do when he's turned black and blue?

He will curse the day

Somebody named him

O-li-ver!

[MR BUMBLE]

What will he do?

In this terrible stew?

[ALL]

He will rue the day somebody name him...

O-li-ver!

Consider Yourself

Consider yourself at home

Consider yourself a one of the family

We've taken to you so strong

It's clear, we're going, to get along

Consider yourself, well in

Consider yourself a part of the furniture

There isn't a lot to spare

Who cares? Whatever we've got, we share!

If it should chance to be we should see some harder days

Empty larder days, why grouse?

Always a chance we'll meet somebody to foot the bill

Then the drinks are on the house!

Consider yourself our mate

We don't want to have no fuss,

For after some consideration, we can state

Consider yourself one of us!

Consider yourself... At home     

Consider yourself... One of the family

We've taken to you… So strong

It's clear...we're...Going to get along

Consider yourself... Well in!

Consider yourself... Part of the furniture

There isn't a lot to spare

Who cares? Whatever we got we share

Nobody tries to be lah-di-dah or uppity--

There a cup-o'-tea for all

Only it's wise to be handy with a rolling pin

When the landlord comes to call!

Consider yourself our mate.

We don't want to have no fuss

For after some consideration we can sate

Consider yourself one of us!

You've gotta pick a pocket or two

 

[FAGIN (spoken)]

You see, Oliver...

[sung] In this life, one thing counts

In the bank, large amounts

I'm afraid these don't grow on trees,

You've got to pick-a-pocket or two

You've got to pick-a-pocket or two, boys,

You've got to pick-a-pocket or two.

[BOYS]

Large amounts don't grow on trees.

You've got to pick-a-pocket or two.

[FAGIN]

Why should we break our backs

Stupidly paying tax?

Better get some untaxed income

Better to pick-a-pocket or two.

You've got to pick-a-pocket or two, boys

You've got to pick-a-pocket or two.

[BOYS]

Why should we all break our backs?

Better pick-a-pocket or two.

[FAGIN]

Robin Hood, what a crook!

Gave away, what he took.

Charity's fine, subscribe to mine.

Get out and pick-a-pocket or two

You've got to pick-a-pocket or two, boys

You've got to pick-a-pocket or two.

[BOYS]

Robin Hood was far too good

He had to pick-a-pocket or two.

[FAGIN]

Take a tip from Bill Sykes

He can whip what he likes.

I recall, he started small

He had to pick-a-pocket or two.

You've got to pick-a-pocket or two, boys

You've got to pick-a-pocket or two.

[BOYS]

We can be like old Bill Sykes

If we pick-a-pocket or two.

[FAGIN]

Dear old gent passing by

Something nice takes his eye

Everything's clear, attack the rear

Get in and pick-a-pocket or two.

You've got to pick-a-pocket or two, boys

You've got to pick-a-pocket or two.

[BOYS]

Have no fear, attack the rear

Get in and pick-a-pocket or two.

[FAGIN]

When I see someone rich,

Both my thumbs start to itch

Only to find some peace of mind

We have to pick-a-pocket or two.

You've got to pick-a-pocket or two, boys

You've got to pick-a-pocket or two.

[BOYS]

Just to find some peace of mind

[FAGIN AND BOYS]

We have to pick-a-pocket or two!

I'd do anything

 

I'd do anything, For you dear anything

For you mean everything to me.

I know that I'd go anywhere

For your smile, anywhere --

For your smile, ev'rywhere --

I'd see.

   Would you climb a hill?

Anything!

   Wear a daffodil?

Anything!

   Leave me all your will?

Anything!

   Even fight my Bill?

What? Fisticuffs?

I'd risk everything for one kiss -- everything

Yes, I'd do anything...

   Anything?!

Anything for you!!

 

I'd do anything, For you dear, anything

For you mean everything to me

I know that I'd go anywhere

For your smile, anywhere --

For your smile, everywhere

I'd see

   Would you lace my shoe?

Anything!

   Paint your face bright blue?

Anything!

   Catch a kangaroo?

Anything!

   Go to Timbuktu?

And back again!

I'd risk ev'rything for one kiss -- everything

Yes, I'd do anything

   Anything?!

Anything for you!!

 

   Would you rob a shop?

Anything!

   Would you risk the "drop"?

Anything!

Hang ev'rything!

We'd risk life and limb to keep you in the swim

Be Back Soon

 

You can go, but be back soon

You can go, but while you're working.

This place, I'm pacing round...

Until you're home, safe and sound

Fare thee well, but be back soon

Who can tell where danger's lurking?

Do not forget this tune

Be back soon.

 

How could we forget?

How could we let our dear old Fagin worry?

We love him so.

We'll come back home in, oh, such a great big hurry

It's him that pays the piper.

It's us that pipes his tune

So long, fare thee well

Pip! Pip! Cheerio!

We'll be back soon.

 

You can go but be back soon

You can go, but bring back plenty

Of pocket hankerchiefs

And you should be clever thieves.

Whip it quick, and be back soon

There's a sixpence here for twenty

Ain't that a lovely tune?

Be back soon.

 

Our pockets'll hold a watch of gold that chimes upon the hour

A wallet fat, an old man's hat, the crown jewels from the tower

We know the Bow Street Runners,

But they don't know this tune.

So long, fare thee well.

Pip! Pip! Cheerio!

We'll be back soon.

 

Cheerio, but be back soon.

I dunno, somehow I'll miss you

I love you, that why I say, "Cheerio" not goodbye.

Don't be gone long be back soon.

Give me one long, last look, bless you.

Remember our old tune...

Be back soon!

 

We must disappear,

We'll be back here, today, perhaps tomorrow.

We'll miss you too, it's sad but true

That parting is such sweet sorrow.

And when we're in the distance

You'll hear this whispered tune...

So long, fare thee well

Pip! Pip! Cheerio!

We'll be back soon
