"Why Should I Worry" is a song featured in Disney's Oliver and Company. It is sung by Dodger. The song is a wonderfully upbeat way to introduce the street-wise dog from New York City. It is played when Dodger is trying to escape with some hot dogs from Oliver, which he stole from a hot dog vendor named Old Louie with the help of Oliver. 

At the end of the film, the song is sung by Dodger again; only this time with the entire gang singing along. The reprise song is played when the gang is heading back home with Fagin after celebrating Jenny's eighth birthday and saying their good-byes to Oliver, who now lives with Jenny in his new home, at the end of the movie.

Lyrics

Dodger:
One minute, I'm in Central Park
Then I'm down on Delancey Street
From the Bowery to St. Marks
There's a syncopated beat
Whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo
I'm streetwise
I can improvise

Dodger, Chorus Dogs:
Whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo

Dodger:
I'm street-smart
I've got New York City heart

Why should I worry?
Why should I care?
I may not have a dime
But I got street savoir-faire

Why should I worry?
Why should I care?
It's just be-bopulation
And I got street savoir-faire

The rhythm of the city
Boy, once you get it down
Then you can own this town
You can wear the crown

Why should I worry?
Tell me, why should I care?
Say, I may not have a dime
But, oh, I got street savoir-faire

Why should I worry?
Why should I care?
It's just doo-wopulation
And I got street savoir-faire

Two Female Dogs, Chorus Dogs:
Ev'rything goes
Ev'rything fits

Dodger:
They love me at the Chelsea
They adore me at the Ritz

Why should I worry?
Why should I care?
And even when I crossed that line
I got street savoir-faire

Dodger, Chorus Dogs:
Whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo (etc.)

Dodger:
Why should I worry?
(Tell me) Why should I care?
Say, I may not have a dime

Dodger and Rita:
Oh, but I've got street savoir faire
Why should we worry?

Dodger, Rita, and Francis:
Why should we care?
We may not have a dime
But we got street savoir faire

Tito:
Why should we worry?
Why should we care?
It's just be-bopulation
We got street savoir faire

Dodger:
The rhythm of the city
Boy, once you get it down
Then you can own this town

Dodger and the Gang (including Einstein):
You can wear the crown

Dodger, the Gang, and the Chorus Dogs (variously):
Why should we worry?
Why should we care?
It's just doo-wopulation
We got street savoir faire
Why should we worry?
Why should we care?
And even when we cross that line
We got street savoir faire

The Females of the Chorus Dogs:
Whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo (etc.)
