ALADDIN - One Jump Ahead Lyrics

sponsored links
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:] Riff raff! 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!

[3girls:] Who? Oh, it's sad, Aladdin's hit the bottom
He's become a one-man rise in crime
[older lady:] 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've got the time!

One jump ahead of the slow pokes
One skip ahead of my doom
Next time gonna use a non 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!
[Aladdin:] Abu!
[crowd:] Scandal!
[Aladdin:] Let's not be too hasty
[Fat woman:] 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
[crowd:] VANDAL!
[Aladdin:] One hop ahead of the hump
[crowd:] STREET RAT!
[Aladdin:] One trick ahead of Disaster!
[crowd:] Scoundrel!
[Aladdin:] they're quick but I'm much faster
[crowd:] Take that!
[Aladdin:] here goes, better throw my hand in
Wish me happy landin'
All I gotta do is jump!

Riff raff, street rat, I don't buy that, if only they'd look closer ,
Would they see a poor boy?
They'd find out
There's so much more to me.
