Consider Yourself lyrics – song lyrics from Oliver!

Consider Yourself is a song from the musical Oliver!.  It is performed in the market and led by the Artful Dodger. Dodger sings it when he first meets Oliver, after offering to get the destitute and lonely boy food and lodging. 

Artful Dodger: (spoken) So, Oliver Twist, you’re coming with me.

Oliver: (spoken) Are you sure Mr. Fagin won’t mind?

Artful Dodger: (spoken) Mind?!

Consider yourself at home.
Consider yourself one of the family.
We’ve taken to you so strong.
It’s clear we’re going to get along.
Consider yourself well in
Consider yourself part of the furniture.
There isn’t a lot to spare.
Who cares? … Whatever we’ve got we share!

If it should chance to be
We should see
Some harder days
Empty larder days
Why grouse?
Always a-chance we’ll meet
Somebody
To foot the bill
Then the drinks are on the house!
Consider yourself our mate.
We don’t want to have no fuss,
For after some consideration, we can state…
Consider yourself
One of us!

Consider yourself…

Our mate.
We don’t want to have no fuss

Consider yourself well in…
There isn’t a lot to spare

Some harder days
Empty larder days —
Why grouse?
Always a chance we’ll meet
Somebody
To foot the bill —
Then the drinks are on the house!

Consider yourself our mate.
We don’t want to have no fuss
For after some consideration, we can state…
Consider yourself…
One of us!

For after some consideration we can state
Consider yourself
One of us…

For after some consideration we can state
Consider yourself…
One of us!

If it should chance to be

Empty larder days,
Why grouse?
Always a chance we’ll meet
Somebody to foot the bill.
Then the drinks are on the house.

Consider yourself our mate.
We don’t want to have no fuss
For after some consideration we can state
Consider yourself…
One of us!!
