[DODGER]
Single file!
Quick march
Left...Right
left...right...Aye! Aye!

[FAGIN]
You can go,
But be back soon
You can go,
But while you're working.
This place,
I'm pacing round...
Until you're home,
...Safe and sound

Fare thee well,
But be back soon
Who can tell
Where danger's lurking?
Do not forget this tune
Be back soon.

[BOYS]
How could we forget
How could we let
Our dear old Fagin worry?
We love him so.
We'll come back home
In, oh, such a great big
Hurry

[BOYS]
It's him that plays the piper.

[BOYS]
It's us that calls his tune
So long, fare thee well
Pip! Pip! Cheerio!
We'll be back soon.

[FAGIN]
You can go
But be back soon
You can go,
But bring back plenty
Of wallets full of cash
don't want to see any trash
Whip it quick,
and be back soon
Only thick ones now not empty
Get rich this afternoon
Be back soon.

[DODGER]
Our pockets'll hold
A watch of gold
That chimes upon the hour

[BOYS]
A wallet fat
An old man's hat

[DODGER]
The crown jewels from the tower
We know
The Nosy policmen

[ALL]
But they don't know this tune.
So long, fare thee well.
Pip! Pip! Cheerio!
We'll be back soon.

[FAGIN]
Cheerio, but be back soon.
I dunno, somehow I'll miss you
I love you, that why I
Say, "Cheerio"...
Not goodbye.

Don't be gone long
Be back soon.
Give me one long,
Last look...
Bless you.
Remember our old tune...
Be back soon!

[BOYS]
We must disappear,
We'll be back here,
Today...
...Perhaps tomorrow.
We'll miss you too

It's sad but true
That parting is such sweet sorrow.

[ALL]
And when we're in the distance
You'll hear this
Whispered tune...
So long, fare thee well
Pip! Pip! Cheerio!
We'll be back soon

And when we're in the distance
You'll hear this
Whipered tune...
So long, fare thee well
Pip! Pip! Cheerio!
We'll be back soon

[FAGIN]
Cheerio, but be back soon.
I dunno, somehow I'll miss you
I love you, that why I
Say, "Cheerio"...
Not goodbye.

Don't be gone long
Be back soon.
Give me one long,
Last look...
Bless you.
Remember our old tune...
Be back soon!

[BOYS]
We must disappear,
We'll be back here,
Today...
...Perhaps tomorrow.
We'll miss you too

It's sad but true
That parting is such sweet sorrow.

And when we're in the distance
You'll hear this
Whipered tune...
So long, fare thee well
Pip! Pip! Cheerio!
We'll be back soon

You'll hear this
Whipered tune...
So long, fare thee well
Pip! Pip! Cheerio!
We'll be back soon

And when we're in the distance
You'll hear this
Whipered tune...
So long, fare thee well
Pip! Pip! Cheerio!
We'll be back soon

[OLIVER]
So long, fare thee well
Pip! Pip! Cheerio!
We'll be back soon

[BOYS]

So long, fare thee well
Pip! Pip! Cheerio!
We'll be back soon
