How ya doin', all right?

I-I-I spy with my little eye
Something beginning with you
Drool, drool, drool, nearly fell off me stool

I hope you fancy me too
Now I don't wanna set the world on fire
Any old iron, any old iron will do
(All right)

Smirk, smirk, smirk the G and T's work
She can knock 'em back like a fish
Smarm, smarm, smarm, I turned up me charm

I think I'm on a promise
(He thinks he's on a promise)
Some say yes and some say no
And my old man says "Mind, how you go"

A little bit of this, a little bit of that
If you can't take a joke, well, sod ya
(Oh)
I'm a dysfunctional chap
And they call me the Artful Dodger

Chat, chat, chat, it's back to the flat
I strum my little Spanish guitar
Gloat, gloat, gloat, she said and I'll quote
"You can take down my particulars"
(Take down her particulars)

It's a funny old life if you weaken, innit?
You gonna have a laugh, yeah, you've gotta give it
A little bit of this, a little bit of that

Look out for PC Plodger
If a job's worth doin', it's worth doin' well
And they call me the Artful Dodger

(Get on your bike)
I said, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
If you can't take a joke well, sod ya
(Oh)
I'm a bit of a lad and they call me the Artful Dodger

(Now)
A little bit of this, a little bit of that
Hoist up the Jolly Roger
That's the way to do it, call me the Artful Dodger

And I'm doin' all right
Yes, I'm doin' all right
Yes, I'm doin' all right
Yes I'm doing very well, thank you

How ya doin'? All right
(We're doin' all right)
How ya doin'? All right
(We're doin' all right)
How ya doin'? All right
(Yeah, we're doin' all right)
How ya doin'? All right
(We're doin' all right)

They call me the Artful Dodger
They call me the Artful Dodger
They call me the Artful Dodger

They call me the Artful Dodger
They call me the Artful Dodger
They call me the Artful Dodger

They call me the Artful Dodger
They call me the Artful Dodger
They call me the Artful Dodger
