You've Got to Pick a Pocket or Two lyrics

You've 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!



Rum Tum Tum

FAGIN

(spoken) Just do everything you see Dodger and Charlie do.
Make 'em your models, my dear -- especially Dodger --
He's going to be right little... Bill Sikes! Tell me my dear,
you see my hankerchief? See if you can take it from me without
my noticing -- like you saw the others do.

Rum-tum-tum,
Rum-tum-tum
Pom-pom-pom
Pom-pom-pom
Skiddle-eye-tye
Tee-rye-tye-tye
Tee-ruppa-tuppa-ruppa-tum-tum
You've got to pick a pocket or two! You've got to pick a pocket or two!
