Be Back Soon lyrics

Be Back Soon is a song from the musical Oliver!  Words and Music by Lionel Bart.  It is sung by Fagin, the Artful Dodger, Oliver, and the boys as Fagin sends them out to work.  As pickpockets.

Fagin: Line up!

Artful Dodger: Line up!

Fagin: Single file!

Artful Dodger: Single file!

Fagin: Quick march! Left.

Artful Dodger: Right.

Fagin: Left.

Artful Dodger: Right.

Boys: (marching in place) Aye aye!

Fagin: You can go,
But be back soon
You can go,
But while you’re working.
This place,
I’m pacing round…
Until you’re home,
…Safe and sound

Fare thee well,
But be back soon
Who can tell
Where danger’s lurking?
Do not forget this tune
Be back soon.

Boys: How could we forget
How could we let
Our dear old Fagin worry?
We love him so.
We’ll come back home
In, oh, such a great big
Hurry

It’s him that pays the piper.
It’s us that calls the tune
So long, fare thee well
Pip! Pip! Cheerio!
We’ll be back soon.

Be Back Soon is a song from the musical Oliver!  Words and Music by Lionel Bart.  It is sung by Fagin, the Artful Dodger, Oliver, and the boys as Fagin sends them out to work.  As pickpockets.Fagin: You can go
But be back soon
You can go,
But bring back plenty
Of wallets full of cash
Don’t want to see any trash
Whip them quick and be back soon,
Only thick ones now, not empty
Get rich this afternoon
Be back soon.

Artful Dodger: Our pockets hold
A watch of gold
That chimes upon the hour

Boys: A wallet fat
An old man’s hat
The jewels from the tower
We know the nosey policemen
But they don’t know this tune.
So long, fare thee well.
Pip! Pip! Cheerio!
We’ll be back soon.

Fagin: Cheerio, but be back soon.
I dunno, somehow I’ll miss you
I love you, that why I
Say, “Cheerio”…
Not goodbye.

Don’t be gone long
Be back soon.
Give me one long,
Last look…
Bless ya.
Remember our old tune…
Be back soon!

Boys: And when we’re in the distance
You’ll hear this
Whispered tune…
So long, fare thee well
Pip! Pip! Cheerio!
We’ll be back soon

And when we’re in the distance
You’ll hear this
Whispered tune…
So long, fare thee well
Pip! Pip! Cheerio!
We’ll be back soon

Fagin: Cheerio, but be back soon.
I dunno, somehow I’ll miss you
I love you, that why I
Say, “Cheerio”…
Not goodbye.

Don’t be gone long
Be back soon.
Give me one long,
Last look…
Bless you.
Remember our old tune…
Be back soon!

Boys: And when we’re in the distance
You’ll hear this
Whispered tune…
So long, fare thee well
Pip! Pip! Cheerio!
We’ll be back soon

Oliver: So long, fare thee well
Pip! Pip! Cheerio!
We’ll be back soon

Boys: So long, fare thee well
Pip! Pip! Cheerio!
We’ll be back soon
