[DODGER (spoken)]
So, Oliver Twist, you're coming with me.

[OLIVER (spoken)]
Are you sure Mr. Fagin won't mind?

[DODGER (spoken)]
Mind?! Oliver why don't you have a little listen to this song

Consider yourself at home.
Consider yourself one of the family.
We've taken to you so strong.
It's clear we're going to get along.
Consider yourself well in
Consider yourself part of the furniture.
There isn't a lot to spare.
Who cares?..What ever we've got we share!

If it should chance to be
We should see
Some harder days
Empty larder days
Why grouse?
Always a chance we'll meet
Somebody
To foot the bill
Then the drinks are on the house!
Consider yourself our mate.
We don't want to have no fuss,
For after some consideration, we can state...
Consider yourself
One of us!

Consider yourself...

[OLIVER]

[DODGER]
Nobody tries to be lah-di-dah or uppity--
There a cup o' tea for all.

[ALL]
Only it's wise to be handy with a rolling pin
When the landlord comes to call!

[DODGER]
Consider yourself
Our mate.
We don't want to have no fuss

[ALL]
For after some consideration we can sate

Empty larder days --

Always a chance we'll meet
Somebody
To foot the bill --
Then the drinks are on the house!

Consider yourself our mate.

For after some consideration, we can state...
