    Lyrics

    ROSE-SELLER
    Who will buy my sweet red roses? Two blooms for a penny. (Repeat 4 times.)

    MILKMAID
    Will you buy any milk today mistress? Any milk today mistress?

    ROSE-SELLER
    Who will buy my sweet red roses?

    MILKMAID
    Any milk today mistress?

    ROSE-SELLER
    Two blooms for a penny.

    STRAWBERRY-SELLER
    Ripe, strawberries ripe! Ripe, strawberries ripe!

    MILKMAID & STRAWBERRY-SELLER (At same time)
    MILKMAID: Any milk today mistress?
    STRAWBERRY-SELLER: Ripe, strawberries ripe!

    ROSE-SELLER
    Will you buy my sweet red roses?

    STRAWBERRY-SELLER
    Ripe, strawberries ripe!

    MILKMAID & KNIFE GRINDER (At same time)
    MILKMAID: Any milk today mistress?
    KNIFE GRINDER: Knives, knives to grind!

    ROSE-SELLER
    Who will buy?

    KNIFE GRINDER
    Any knives to grind?

    STRAWBERRY-SELLER

    ROSE-SELLER
    Who will buy?

    OLIVER
    Who will buy this wonderful morning?
    Such a sky you never did see!

    ROSE-SELLER
    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
