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.

You’ve got to pick-a-pocket or two.

[BOYS and chorus ]

Large amounts don’t grow on trees.

You’ve got to pick-a-pocket or two.

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.

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 and chorus ]

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 and chorus ]

We can be like old Bill Sikes

If we pick-a-pocket or two.
