Oliver - Reviewing The Situation Lyrics

  • A man's got a heart, hasn't he?
  • Joking apart -- hasn't he?
  • And tho' I'd be the first one to say that I wasn't a saint...
  • I'm finding it hard to be really as black as they paint...
  • I'm reviewing the situation
  • Can a fellow be a villain all his life?
  • All the trials and tribulations!
  • Better settle down and get myself a wife.
  • And a wife would cook and sew for me,
  • And come for me, and go for me,
  • And go for me, and nag at me,
  • The fingers, she will wag at me.
  • The money whe will take from me.
  • A misery, she'll make for me...
  • ... I think I'd better think it out again!
  • A wife you can keep, anyway
  • I'd rather sleep, anyway.
  • Left without anyone in the world,
  • And I'm starting from now
  • So "how to win friends and to influence people"
  • --So how?
  • I'm reviewing the situation,
  • I must quickly look up ev'ryone I know.
  • Titled people -- with a station --
  • Who can help me make a real impressive show!
  • I will own a suite at Claridges,
  • And run a fleet of carriages,
  • And wave at all the duchesses
  • With friendliness, as much as is
  • Befitting of my new estate...
  • "Good morrow to you, magistrate!" Oh gawd!
  • ... I think I'd better think it out again.
  • So where shall I go -- somebody?
  • Who do I know? Nobody!
  • All my dearest companions
  • Have always been villains and thieves...
  • So at my time of life
  • I should start turning over new leaves... ?
  • I'm reviewing the situation.
  • If you want to eat -- you've got to earn a bob!
  • Is it such a humiliation
  • For a robber to perform an honest job?
  • So a job I'm getting, possibly,
  • I wonder who my boss'll be?
  • I wonder if he'll take to me... ?
  • What bonuses he'l make to me... ?
  • I'll start at eight and finish late,
  • At normal rate, and all... but wait!
  • ... I think I'd better think it out again.
  • What happens when I'm seventy?
  • Must come a time... seventy.
  • When you're old, and it's cold
  • And who cares if you live or you die,
  • Your one consolation's the money
  • You may have put by...
  • I'm reviewing the situation.
  • I'm a bad 'un and a bad 'un I shall stay!
  • You'll be seeing no transformation,
  • But it's wrong to be a rogue in ev'ry way.
  • I don't want nobody hurt for me,
  • Or made to do the dirt for me.
  • This rotten life is not for me.
  • It's getting far too hot for me.
  • Don't want no one to rob for me.
  • But who will find a job for me,
  • There is no in between for me
  • But who will change the scene for me?
  • ... I think I'd better think it out again!
  • Hey!
