Oliver! - Oliver! (Reprise) Lyrics

1962 Broadway
Oliver! the Musical - Oliver! (Reprise) Lyrics


The song was written by Lionel Bart.

WIDOW CORNEY (spoken):
We must retireve that boy, Mr. Bumble.

MR. BUMBLE (spoken):
We must indeed ma'am. We must indeed.

BOTH:
Oliver! Oliver!

WIDOW CORNEY:
That was the mite
With the large appetite

BOTH:
Oliver! Oliver!

MR. BUMBLE:
Apparently he's from a rich family!

WIDOW CORNEY:
And to think we
Nearly
Stupidly went and lost track of him...

MR. BUMBLE:
If the truth were
Know we
Both were delighted at seeing the back of him.

BOTH:
Oliver! Oliver!

MR. BUMBLE:
What'll we do...?

WIDOW CORNEY:
We must give him his due...

BOTH:
...And we'll praise the day
Somebody gave us

MR. BUMBLE:
Raise the flags

WIDOW CORNEY:
Coming to save us

BOTH:
Cash rewards

MR. BUMBLE:
Plus a promotion

WIDOW CORNEY:
Who'd have thought?

MR. BUMBLE:
Hadn't a notion

BOTH:
Praise the lord, somebody brought us O-li-ver!
