ROSE-SELLER Who will buy my sweet red roses? Two blooms for a penny. MILKMAID Will you buy any milk today mistress? Any milk today mistress? STRAWBERRY-SELLER Ripe, strawberries ripe! Ripe, strawberries ripe! KNIFE GRINDER: Knives, knives to grind! WASHING WOMEN They'll never be a day so sunny, It could not happen twice.

OLIVER Who will buy this wonderful morning? Such a sky you never did see! Who will tie it up with a ribbon, and put it in a box for me? So I could see it at my leisure, Whenever things go wrong, And I would keep it as a treasure, To last my whole life long. Me, oh my! I don't want to lose it. So what am I to do To keep a sky so blue? There must be someone who will buy... Who will buy this wonderful morning? Such a sky you never did see! Who will tie it up with a ribbon, And put it in a box for me?

They'll never be a day so sunny, It could not happen twice. Where is the man with all the money? It's cheap at half the price! Who will buy this wonderful feeling? I'm so high I swear I could fly. Me, oh my! I don't want to lose it So what am I to do To keep a sky so blue? There must be someone who will buy...Where is the man with all the money? It's cheap at half the price! Who will buy this wonderful feeling? I'm so high I swear I could fly. Me, oh my! I don't want to lose it So what am I to do? To keep a sky so blue? There must be someone who will buy...Buy!

CHAIRMAN (spoken) Ladies and gentlemen, brethren and sinners all! I call upon our Goddess of the Virtues to give us her well known rendition of the old school song -- Oom-Pah-Pah!

NANCY (spoken) All right, shut up, you lot! A bit of culture now! 'Ere we go... (sung) There's a little ditty They're singing in the city Espeshly when they've been On the gin Or the beer If you've got the patience, Your own imaginations Will tell you just exactly what you want to hear... Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah! That's how it goes, Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah! Ev'ryone knows. They all suppose what they want to suppose When they hear...oom-pah-pah!! Mister Percy Snodgrass Would often have the odd glass -- But never when he thought anybody could see. Secretly he'd buy it, And drink it on the quiet, And dream he was an Earl Wiv a girl on each knee! What is the cause of his red shiny nose? Could it be...oom-pah-pah!? Pretty little Sally Goes walking down the alley, Displays her pretty ankles to all of the men. They could see her garters, But not for free-and-gratis-- An inch or two, and then she knows When to say when! Whether it's hidden, or whether it shows -- It's the same...oom-pah-pah! She was from the country, But now she's up a gum-tree -- She let a feller feed 'er, then lead 'er along What's the good o' cryin'? She's made a bed to lie in She's glad to bring the coin in, And join in this song! She is no longer the same blushing rose Ever since ... oom-pah-pah!
...

(sung as a round) Altogether now! There's a little ditty They're singing in the city Espeshly when they've been On the gin Or the beer If you've got the patience, Your own imaginations Will tell you just exactly what you want to hear... Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah! That's how it goes, Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah! Ev'ryone knows. They all suppose what they want to suppose When they hear...oom-pah-pah!! Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah! That's how it goes, Oom-pah-pah! Oom-pah-pah! Ev'ryone knows. They all suppose what they want to suppose When they hear...oom-pah-pah!! Oom-pah-pah!

"well, I'm reviewing...the situation"

I, like the view said...

steg the boys who played Dodger and Fagin were spectacular! and the girl who played Nancy, equally so (very scary what these ten and eleven year-olds can allude to in a church primary school play. . .) (M-T came over to see me last night with the DVD of The School Production!)
