Lyrics

Original version

Aladdin: Gotta keep One jump ahead of the breadline One swing ahead of the sword I steal only what I can't afford And that's everything!

One jump ahead of the lawmen That's all, and that's no joke These guys don't appreciate I'm broke

Guards: Riffraff! Street rat! Scoundrel! Take that!

Aladdin: Just a little snack, guys Guards: Rip him open! Take it back, guys! Aladdin: I can take a hint, Gotta face the facts You're my only friend, Abu! Harem Girls: Who?

Oh, it's sad, Aladdin's hit the bottom He's become a one-man rise in crime Woman: I'd blame parents except he hasn't got 'em Aladdin: Gotta eat to live, Gotta steal to eat Tell you all about it when I got the time!

One jump ahead of the slowpokes One skip ahead of my doom Next time gonna use a nom de plume

One jump ahead of the hitmen One hit ahead of the flock I think I'll take a stroll around the block

Crowd: Stop, thief! Vandal! Aladdin: Abu!? Crowd: (Outrage!) Scandal!

Aladdin: Let's not be too hasty Lady: Still I think he's rather tasty Aladdin: Gotta eat to live, Gotta steal to eat Otherwise we'd get along Crowd: Wrong!

Aladdin: One jump ahead of the hoofbeats (Crowd: Riffraff!) Aladdin: One hop ahead of the hump (Crowd: Street rat!) Aladdin: One trick ahead of disaster (Crowd: Scoundrel!) Aladdin: They're quick, but I'm much faster (Crowd: Take that!) Aladdin: Here goes: Better throw my hand in Wish me happy landin' All I gotta do is jump!

Reprise

Riff-raff, street rat. I don't buy that. If only they'd look closer.

Would they see a poor boy? No, siree.

They'd find out there's so much more to me.
