Got to 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
(spoken)]Let's show Oliver how it's done, shall we, my dears?


[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?


[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.


[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.


[FAGIN (spoken)]Stop thief!
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!
