One Jump Ahead
Disney Aladdin Song Lyrics
One Jump Ahead



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! Soundrel! 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?
Oh it's that 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
(Vandal!)
One hop ahead of the hump
(Street rat!)
One trick ahead of disaster
(Scoundrel!)
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
