Albert

Specs
(referring to the other boys)
Hey, look, it's bath time at
The zoo!

Henry
I thought that i'd surprise my
Mother

Albert
If you can find her

Newsies
Who asked you?

Race
From bottle alley
To the harbor,
There's easy pickins
Guaranteed.

Finch
Try any banker, bum,
Or barber.
They almost all
Knows how to read.

Jack
Its a crooked game
We're playin',
One well never lose,
Long as suckers don't mind
Payin just to get bad news!

Newsies
Ain't it a fine life
Carrying the banner
Through it all!
A mighty fine life
Carrying the banner
Tough and tall.
When that bell rings
We goes where we wishes.
Wes as free as fishes.
Sure beats washin dishes.
What a fine life
Carrying the banner
Home free all.

Finch
Hey, crutchie, what's your leg say?
Gonna rain?

Crutchie
(shakes his leg)
No rain. partly cloudy. clear by
Evening.

Race
Ha! and the limp sells fifty papes a
Week all by itself!

Crutchie
I don't need the limp to sell papes.
I got personality.

It takes a smile that spreads
Like butter, the kind that
Turns a ladys head

Race
It takes an orphan with a
Stutter,

Finch
Who's also blind-

Albert
And mute-

Elmer
And dead!

Crutchie, buttons & jo jo
Summer stinks and winters
Freezin
When you works outdoors.

Jack, tommy boy, crutchie, buttons & jo jo
Start out sweatin, end up
Sneezin,
In between it pours!

Newsies
Still its a fine life
Carrying the banner
With me chums.
A bunch of big shots,
Tossin out a freebie
To the
Bums.

Finch
Hey! whats the hold up?
Waitin' makes me antsy.
I likes living chancey,

Newsies

Nuns
Blessed children,
Though you wander
Lost and depraved,
Jesus loves you.
You shall be saved.

Concrete doughnuts
Sprinkled with mold,
Homemade biscuits
Just two years old

Blessed children
Ah

And then someone said,
That coneys really hot,
But when i got there,
There was spot with
All his cronies.

They work us.
Jeez, i bet if i just stayed
A little longer
At the circus
