 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Gotta keep one jump ahead of the breadline
One swing ahead of the sword
I steal only what I can't afford
And that's everything

One jump ahead of the lawmen
That's all, and that's no joke
These guys don't appreciate I'm broke

Riff raff!
Street rat!
Take that!
Try a different tac', guys

Rip him open
'Round the back lines
I can take a hint, gotta face the facts
Could really use a friend or two (huh?)

Oh, it's sad, Aladdin's hit the bottom
He's become a one-man rise in crime
I'd blame parents, 'cept he hasn't got 'em
Gotta eat to live, gotta steal to eat
Tell you all about it when I got the time

One jump ahead of the slowpokes
One skip ahead of my doom
Next time gonna use a nom de plume
One jump ahead of the hitmen
One hit ahead of the flock
I think I'll take a stroll around the block

Stop, thief!

Let's not be too hasty
Still I think he's rather tasty
Gotta eat to live, gotta steal to eat
Otherwise we'd get along (wrong!)

One jump ahead of the hoofbeats
One hop ahead of the hump
One trick ahead of disaster
They're quick, but I'm much faster
Here goes
Better throw my hand in, wish me happy landin'
All I gotta do is jump!
