Such a sky you never did see!

Who will buy my sweet red roses?

OLIVER
Who will tie it up with a ribbon, and put it in a box for me?

STRAWBERRY-SELLER
Ripe, strawberries ripe!

OLIVER
So I could see it at my leisure,
Whenever things go wrong,
And I would keep it as a treasure,
To last my whole life long.

MILKMAID
Any milk today?

OLIVER
Who will buy this wonderful feeling?
I'm so high, I swear I could fly.

KNIFEGRINDER
Knives, knives to grind!

STRAWBERRY-SELLER
Ripe, strawberries ripe!

OLIVER
Me, oh my! I don't want to lose it.
So what am I to do
To keep a sky so blue?
There must be someone who will buy...

STRAWBERRY-SELLER
Who will buy?

KNIFEGRINDER
Who will buy?

MILKMAID
Who will buy?

ROSE-SELLER
Who will buy?

ALL
Who will buy?

ALL:
Who will buy this wonderful morning?
Such a sky you never did see!
Who will tie it up with a ribbon,
And put it in a box for me?

They'll never be a day so sunny,
It could not happen twice.
Where is the man with all the money?
It's cheap at half the price!

Who will buy this wonderful feeling?
I'm so high I swear I could fly.
Me, oh my! I don't want to lose it
So what am I to do
To keep a sky so blue?
There must be someone who will buy...

WASHING WOMEN

They'll never be a day so sunny,
It could not happen twice.
Where is the man with all the money?
It's cheap at half the price!

INSTRUMENTAL

ALL
Who will buy this wonderful feeling?
I'm so high I swear I could fly.
Me, oh my! I don't want to lose it
So what am I to do?
To keep a sky so blue?
There must be someone who will buy...
Buy!
BUY!

This is a great song! I'm playing the Rose-Seller in St.Mary's Youth Centre's upcoming production of the show "Oliver". The cast are aged from seven year olds to sixteen year olds. It's a very complicated song as regards when someone sings their line or not and the many verses but it's great fun!! It's very energetic in parts but very subdued in other parts which really sets it apart from the other songs in "Oliver".
It's brill! (",) Fifi
