[Aladdin:]      Gotta keep
                One jump ahead of the breadline
                One swing ahead of the sword
                I steal only what I can't afford
                ( 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

[Crowd:]        Riffraff! Street rat! Scoundrel! Take that!

[Aladdin:]      Just a little snack, guys
[Crowd:]        Rip him open, take it back, guys
[Aladdin:]      I can take a hint, gotta face the facts
                You're my only friend, Abu!
[Crowd:]        Who?

[Ladies:]       Oh it's sad Aladdin's hit the bottom
                He's become a one-man rise in crime
                I'd blame parents except he hasn't got 'em
[Aladdin:]      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

[Crowd:]        Stop, thief! Vandal! Outrage! Scandal!

[Aladdin:]      Let's not be too hasty
[Lady:]         Still I think he's rather tasty
[Aladdin:]      Gotta eat to live, gotta steal to eat
                Otherwise we'd get along
[Crowd:]        Wrong!

[Aladdin:]      One jump ahead of the hoofbeats
                One hop ahead of the hump
                (Street rat!)
                One trick ahead of disaster
                They're quick, but I'm much faster
                (Take that!)
                Here goes, better throw my hand in
                Wish me happy landin'
                All I gotta do is jump
