Lyrics

That's my cigar!

You'll steal annuda!

Hey, bummers, we got work to do!

Since when did you become me mudda?

Ah, stop yer bawlin'!

Hey! Who ast you?


[movie lines]


Try Bottle Alley or the Harbor

Try Central Park, it's guaranteed!

Try any banker, bum, or barber

They almost all knows how to read!


I smell money!

You smell foul!

Met this girl last night...

Move your elbows!

Pass the towel!

For a buck, I might!


Ain't it a fine life, carryin' the banner through it all!

A mighty fine life, carryin' the banner tough and tall!

Every mornin', we goes where we wishes

We're as free as fishes

Sure beats washin' dishes

What a fine life, carryin' the banner home-free all!


Summer stinks and winter's waitin

Welcome to New York!

Boy, ain't nature fascinatin'

When yous gotta walk?

Still, it's a fine life, carryin' the banner with me chums!

A mighty fine life, blowin' every nickel as it comes!


I'm no snoozer

Sittin' makes me antsy

I likes livin' chancey

Harlem to Delancey

What a fine life, carryin' the banner through the slums!


[nuns]
Blessed children

Though you wander, lost and depraved

Jesus loves you!

You shall be saved!


[a wandering mother]

Patrick, darling

Since you left me, I am undone

Mother loves you!

God, save my son!


Just gimme half a cup

Somethin' to wake me up

I gotta find an angle

I gotta sell more papes!


Papers is all I got

Wish I could catch a breeze

Sure hope the headline's hot

All I can catch is fleas

God, help me if it's not!

Somebody, help me please...


If I hate the headlines

I'll make up the headline

And I'll say anything I have to

'Cuz at two for a penny

If I take too many

Weasel just makes me eat 'em afta


Look! They're puttin' up the headline!

You call that a headline?

Get better stories

From the copper on the beat!

I was gonna start at twenty

Now a dozen'll be plenty

Tell me how I'm gonna make ends meet!


What's it say?

That won't pay!

So where's your spot?

God, it's hot!

Will you tell me

How'm I gonna make ends meet!


We need a good assassination!

We need an earthquake or a war!

How 'bout a crooked politician!

Hey, stupid, that ain't news no more!

Uptown to Grand Central Station

Down to City Hall

We improves our circulation

Walking till we fall


Still we'll be out here, carryin' the banner man to man!

We'll be out here, soakin' every sucka that we can!

See the headline:

Newsies on a mission!

Kill the competition

Sell the next edition

While we're out there

Carryin' the banner is the-


Look! They're puttin' up the headline!

They call that a headline?

That idiot who wrote it

Must be working for The Sun!

Did you hear about the fire?

Heard it killed Ol' Man Maguire!

Heard the toll was even higher!

Why do I miss all the fun?

Hitched it on a trolley

Meet ya fory-fourth and second

Little Italy's a secret

Bleecker's further than I reckoned

By the courthouse

Near the stables

On the coner someone beckoned and I-


It's a fine life, carryin' the banner through it all!

A mighty fine life, carryin' the banner tough and tall!

See the headline:

Newsies on a mission!

Kill the competition!

Sell the next edition!

What a fine life, carryin' the banner!

It's a fine life, carryin' the banner!

It's a fine life, carryin' the banner!

It's a fine life, carryin' the banner!

It's a fine life, carryin' the banner!

It's a, GO!


Would you look at that headline?

You call that a headline?

I get better stories

From the copper on the beat!

I was gonna start with twenty

Now a dozen'll be plenty

Would you tell me how I'm ever

Gonna make ends meet!

Hitched it on a trolley

Meet ya forty-fourth and second

Little Italy's a secret!

Bleecker's further than I reckoned

By the courthouse

Near the stables

On the corner someone beckoned

Go get 'em cowboy

You got 'em now boy

Go get 'em cowboy

You got 'em now boy

Go!
