Listen to song while you read lyrics!

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
Riffraff street rat

Scoundrel take that just a little snack, guys
Rip him open, take it back, guys
I can take a hint, gotta face the facts
You’re my only friend, Abu

Who? 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
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, Vandal outrage scandal

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

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
