Oliver! Lyrics

 

Oliver! Song Lyrics


[MR. BUMBLE]
For what you are about to receive
May the lord make you truly thankful.
[BOYS]
Amen
[OLIVER]
[spoken] Please, Sir, I want some more.
[MR. BUMBLE]
[spoken] What?!
[OLIVER]
[spoken] Please, Sir, I want some more.
[MR. BUMBLE]
[spoken] More!?
[WIDOW CORNEY]
Catch him!
[MR. BUMBLE]
Snatch him!
[WIDOW CORNEY]
Hold him!
[MR. BUMBLE]
Scold him!
[WIDOW CORNEY]
Pounce him!
Trounce him!
Pick him up and bounce him!
[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.
[WIDOW CORNEY AND MR. BUMBLE]
Oliver! Oliver!
[MR. BUMBLE]
Never before has a boy wanted more!
[MR. BUMBLE AND WIDOW CORNEY]
Oliver! Oliver!
[WIDOW CORNEY]
Won't ask for more when he knows what's in store.
[MR. BUMBLE]
There a dar, thin, winding stairway
Without any banister
Whil we'll throw him down, and feed him on
Cockroaches served in a canister
[ALL]
Oliver! Oliver!
MR. BUMBLE
What will he do when he's turned black and blue?
He will curse the day
Somebody named him
[ALL]
O-li-ver!
[MR. BUMBLE]
Oliver! Oliver!
Never before has a boy wanted more!
Oliver! Oliver!
[WIDOW CORNEY]
Won't ask for more
When he knows what's in store.
[MR. BUMBLE]
There's a sooty chimney
Long overdue for a sweeping out
Which we'll push him up,
And one day next year with the rats he'll be creeping out.
[ALL]
Oliver! Oliver!
[MR. BUMBLE]
What will he do?
In this terrible stew?
He will rue the day somebody name him...
[ALL AND WIDOW CORNEY]
O-li-ver!
[GOVERNORS]
Oliver!
Oliver!
Never before has a boy asked for more
Oliver!
Oliver!
[CHAIRMAN]
Pray some decorum restore, I implore...
Let us face this case, it's
Unpreedented, qute utterly.
[GOVERNORS]
He's disgraced this place.
[LARGE GOVERNOR]
Encouraging others to wallow in gluttony.
[ALL]
Oliver!...Oliver!
Lock him in jail
And then put him on sale,
For the highest bid
Glad to be rid
Of
O-li-ver!
[WIDOW CORNEY (spoken)]
Lock him up!
Collect his belongings then bring him back to me
when you've done.
To bed, all of you!
