REVIEWING THE SITUATION From the London Musical "Oliver" (1960) (Lionel Bart) Ron Moody (London Production) - 1960 Clive Revill (Broadway Production) - 1962 Stanley Holloway - 1962 James Kenney - 1962 Jacki Bond - 1967 Ron Moody (Film Production) - 1968 Sandie Shaw - 1969 Julian Forsyth - 1991 Jonathan Pryce (London Revival) - 1994 Victor Spinetti - 1994 Anthony Newley - 1994 A man's got a heart, hasn't he? Joking apart, hasn't he? And though 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 tribulation Better settle down and get meself 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 she will take from me A misery, she'll make from 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 morning to you, Magistrate!" 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 the boss'll be? I wonder if he'll take to me? What bonuses he'll 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? The 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!
