For what you are about to receive
May the Lord make you truly thankful.
(spoken) Please, Sir, I want some more.
(spoken) Please, Sir, I want some... more.
Pick him up and bounce him!
Before we put the lad to task
May I be so curious as to ask
WIDOW CORNEY AND MR. BUMBLE
Never beofre has a boy wanted more!
MR. BUMBLE AND WIDOW CORNEY
Won't ask for more when he knows what's in store.
There's a dark, thin, winding stairway
Without any bannister
Which we'll throw him down, and feed him on
Cockrouches served in a canister
What will he do when he's turned black and blue?
He will curse the day
Somebody named him
Never before has a boy wanted more!
Won't ask for more
When he knows what's in store.
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.
What will he do?
In this terrible stew?
He will rue the day somebody named him...
ALL AND WIDOW CORNEY
Never before has a boy asked for more
Pray some decorum restore, I implore...
Let us face this case, it's
Unprecedented, quite utterly.
He's disgraced this place.
And encouraging others to swallow in gluttony.
Lock him in gaol
And then put him on sale,
For the highest bid
Glad to be rid
(spoken) Lock him up! Collect his belongings then bring him back to me
when you've done. To bed, all of you!
