Lionel Bart – You’ve Got To Pick A Pocket Or Two Lyrics

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

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 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

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

Robin hood was far too good
He had to pick a pocket or two

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!
Got to pick a pocket or two

We could be like old Bill Sikes
If we pick a pocket or two

Dear old gent
Passing by
Something nice takes his eye
Everything’s clear
Attack the rear
Get in 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

Have no fear
Attack the rear
Get in pick a pocket or two

When I see
Someone rich
Both my thumbs
Start to itch
Only to find some piece of mind
I have to pick a pocket or two
You’ve got to pick a pocket or two
Bo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ys!
You’ve got to pick a pocket or two

Just to find some piece of mind
We have to pick a pocket or two
