Pick A Pocket Or Two (Oliver)

Lionel Bart

 

[FAGIN (spoken)] You see, Oliver…

(1st verse) [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 (spoken)] Let’s show Oliver how it’s done, shall we, my dears?

(2nd Verse) [sung] 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 (spoken)] Who says crime doesn’t pay?

(3rd Verse) [sung] 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.

(4th Verse) [FAGIN] Take a tip from Bill Sikes 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 Sikes If we pick-a-pocket or two.  (5th Verse) [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!

Consider Yourself (Oliver)

 

DODGER: 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!

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…

OLIVER: At home?

DODGER:   Consider yourself…

OLIVER:   One of the family?

CAPTAIN:   We’ve taken to you

OLIVER:   So strong?

DODGER:   It’s clear we’re

BOTH:   Going to get along.

DODGER:   Consider yourself…

OLIVER:   Well in?

DODGER:   Consider yourself…

OLIVER: Part of the furniture?

BOTH: There isn’t a lot to spare!

Who cares? Whatever we got we share.

DODGER: Nobody tries to be lah-di-dah and uppity.

There a cup o’tea for all.

Only it’s wise to be handy wiv’ a rolling pin

When the landlord comes to call!

BOTH: Consider yourself Our mate.

We don’t want to have no fuss,

For after some consideration we can state

Consider yourself One of us!

COMPANY: Consider yourself at home.

We’ve taken to you so strong.

Consider yourself well in. There isn’t a lot to spare

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!

 

 

 

Food Glorious Food (Oliver)

 

[BOYS]

Is it worth the waiting for?

If we live ‘til eighty four

All we ever get is gru…el!

Ev’ry day we say our prayer – –

Will they change the bill of fare?

Still we get the same old gru…el!

There is 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 imag…ine

 

Food, glorious food!

Hot sausage and mustard!

While were in the mood – –

Cold jelly and custard!

Pease pudding and saveloys!

What next is the question?

Rich gentlemen have it, boys – –

In-di-gestion!

 

Food, glorious food!

We’re anxious to try it.

Three banquets a day – –

Our favorite diet!

 

Just picture a great big steak – –

Fried , roasted or stewed.

Oh food,

Wonderful food,

Marvelous food,

Glorious food.

 

 

 

 

Food, glorious food!

What is there more handsome?

Gulped, swallowed or chewed – –

Still worth a kin’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 – –

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 cooks 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 we live for

Why should we be fated to

Do nothing but brood

On food

Magical food,

Wonderful food,

Marvelous food,

Fabulous food,

 

[OLIVER]

Beautiful food

 

[BOYS]

Glorious food

om Pah Pah (Oliver)

 

NANCY
(spoken) All right, shut up, you lot! A bit of culture now! ‘Ere we go…

(sung) There’s a little ditty
They’re singing in the city
Espeshly when they’ve been
On the gin  Or the beer
If you’ve got the patience,
Your own imaginations
Will tell you just exactly what you want to hear…

ALL
Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah!
That’s how it goes,
Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah!
Ev’ryone knows.

NANCY
They all suppose what they want to suppose
When they hear…oom-pah-pah!!

Mister Percy Snodgrass
Would often have the odd glass —
But never when he thought anybody could see.
Secretly he’d buy it,
And drink it on the quiet,
And dream he was an Earl
Wiv a girl on each knee!

CUSTOMERS AND NANCY
Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah!
That’s how it goes.
Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah!
Ev’ryone knows…

NANCY
What is the cause of his red shiny nose?
Could it be…oom-pah-pah!?

Pretty little Sally
Goes walking down the alley,
Displays her pretty ankles to all of the men.
They could see her garters,
But not for free-and-gratis–
An inch or two, and then she knows
When to say when!

ALL
Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah!
That’s how it goes.
Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah!
Ev’ryone knows…

NANCY
Whether it’s hidden, or whether it shows —
It’s the same…oom-pah-pah!
She was from the country,
But now she’s up a gum-tree —
She let a feller feed ‘er, then lead ‘er along
What’s the good o’ cryin’?
She’s made a bed to lie in
She’s glad to bring the coin in,
And join in this song!

ALL
Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah!
That’s how it goes!
Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah!
Ev’ryone knows.

NANCY
She is no longer the same blushing rose
Ever since … oom-pah-pah!

(spoken) Altogether now!
(repeat chorus 3 times – getting quicker each time)

ALL
Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah!
That’s how it goes,
Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah!
Ev’ryone knows.

(Last line slower)
NANCY
They all suppose what they want to suppose
When they hear…oom-pah-pah!!

hHope this helps!
