Newsies Original Broadway Cast - Carrying The Banner Lyrics




[Race:]
Hey!
That's my cigar!

[Albert:]
You'll steal another!

[Specs:]
Hey, look! it's bath time at the zoo

[Henry:]
I thought that I'd surprise my mother

[Albert:]
If you can find her

[Newsies:]
Who asked you?!

[Race:]
From bottle alley to the harbor
There's easy pickings guaranteed

[Finch:]
Try any banker, bum, or barber
They almost all knows how to read

[Jack:]
It's a crooked game we're playin'
One we'll never lose
Long as suckers don't mind payin'
Just to get bad news

[Newsies:]
Ain't it a fine life!
Carrying the banner through it all
A mighty fine life!
Carrying the banner tough and tall
When the bell rings
We goes where we wishes
We's as free as fishes
Sure beats washing dishes
What a fine life
Carrying the banner home-free all!

[Finch:]
Hey, crutchie, what's your leg say, gonna rain?

[Crutchie:]
Uh, no rain...
Ho-ho, partly cloudy clear by evenin'

[Race:]
Ha! and the limp sells fifty papes a week, all by itself!

[Crutchie:]
I don't need the limp to sell papes
I got personality
It takes a smile that spreads like butter
The kind that turns a lady's head

[Race:]
It takes an orphan with a stutter

[Finch:]
Who's also blind

[Albert:]
And mute

[Elmer:]
And dead!

[Crutchie, Buttons, Jo-Jo:]
Summer stinks and winters freezing
When you works outdoors

[Jack, Tommy Boy, Crutchie, Buttons, Jo-Jo:]
Start out sweatin
End up sneezin'
In between it pours!

[Newsies:]
Still it's a fine life
Carrying the banner with me chums
A bunch of big shots
Tossin' out a freebie to the bums

[Finch:]
Hey! what's the hold up?
Waiting makes me antsy
I likes livin' chancey

[Newsies:]
Harlem to delancey
What a fine life!
Carrying the banner through the...

[Nuns:]
Blessed children
Though you wander lost and depraved
Jesus loves you
You shall be saved

[Race:]
Curdled

[Elmer:]
Just give me half a cup

[Nuns:]
Blessed children

[Race:]
Coffee

[Henry:]
Somethin' to wake me up

[Race:]
Concrete donuts

[Romeo:]
I gotta find an angle

[Race:]
Sprinkled with mold

[Tommy boy:]
It's gettin bad out there

[Race:]
Homemade

[Mush:]
Papers is all I got

[Nuns:]
Jesus loves you

[Specs:]
It's 88 degrees

[Race:]
Biscuits

[Jo-Jo:]
Jack says to change my spot

[Sniper:]
Wish I could catch a breeze

[Race:]
Just two

[Finch:]
Maybe it's worth a shot

[Buttons:]
All I can catch is fleas

[Race:]
Years old

[Jack:]
If I hate the headline
I'll make up a headline

[Jack and Crutchie:]
And I'll say anything I have'ta

[Jack, Crutchie, Race and Romeo:]
'Cause at two for a penny if I take too many
Weasel just makes me eat 'em afta'!

[Newsies group 1:]
Got a feelin' bout the headline!
I smells me a headline!

[Newsies group 2:]
I do too, so it must be true

[Newsies group 1:]
Papes are gonna sell like we was givin' them away!
Betcha dinner it's a doozy

[Newsies group 2:]
What a switch! soon we'll all be rich

[Newsies group 1:]
'Bout a pistol-packin' floozy
Who knows how to make a newsie's day!

[Newsies group 2:]
Don't know any better way to make a newsie's day

[Newsies:]
You wanna move the next edition
Give us an earthquake or a war!

[Elmer:]
How 'bout a crooked politician?

[Newsies:]
Yeah, nitwit, that ain't news no more!
Uptown to grand central station
Down to city hall
We improves our circulation
Walking 'til we fall

[Newsies group 1:]
But we'll be out there

[Newsies group 2:]
Got a feelin' 'bout the headline

[Newsies group 1:]
Carrying the banner man to man!

[Newsies group 2:]
I smells me a headline
Papes are gonna sell like we was givin' them away

[Newsies group 1:]
We're always out there

[Newsies group 2:]
Betcha dinner it's a doozy

[Newsies group 1:]
Soakin' every sucker that we can!

[Newsies group 2:]
'Bout a pistol-packin' floozy
Don't know any better way to make a newsie's day!

[Newsies group 1:]
See the headline:

[Newsies group 2:]
I was stakin' out the circus

[Newsies group 1:]
Newsies on a mission!

[Newsies group 2:]
And then someone said that coney's really hot

[Newsies group 1:]
Kill the competition

[Newsies group 2:]
But when I got there

[Newsies group 1:]
Sell the next edition!

[Newsies group 2:]
There was spot with all his cronies

[Newsies group 1:]
We'll be out there

[Newsies group 2:]
Heck, I'm gonna take what little dough I got and play with the ponies!

[Newsies group 1:]
Carrying the banner!
See us out there

[Newsies group 2:]
We at least deserves a headline for the hours that they work us

[Newsies group 1:]
Carrying the banner!
Always out there

[Newsies group 2:]
Jeez, I bet if I just stayed a little longer at the circus...

[Newsies group 1:]
Carrying the banner!

[Newsies:]
We'll all be out there
Carrying the banner man to man!
We're always out there
Soakin' every sucker that we can!
Here's the headline:
Newsies on a mission!
Kill the competition!
Sell the next edition!
We'll be out there
Carrying the banner!
See us out there
Carrying the banner!
Always out there
Carrying the banner!
Ah, ah, ah, go!

  17. Ella Hart

    I have to do this for an audition for my high schools production of Newsies and I’m so nervous on the bright side I won’t be the only one singing this song

  18. Ella Spurlock

    I’m organizing a newsies production and also staring as race in the newsies but most of the kids have never seen it so I’m forcing them to watch it first dress rehearsal and my schools not very big on fine arts especially theater so we’ll see how this goes

  19. Amber Rizzi

    I need to see this live.... the closest I got is the recording of the 2017 Pantages Theatre production (which is freaking FANTASTIC, by the way), but it'd be even better seeing it live in person.

    ເມື່ອຍ

    I saw it live and the production was in a pretty small church, the budget didn't look very high and they had a lot of girls playing the newsies, but they really took advantage of the small space they had, not to mention the actors were great, so it turned out amazing imo.

    @ເມື່ອຍ That's awesome!

    In intermediate school, my music teacher would show us musicals all the time and I had NO idea any of these were owned by Disney. Newsies and Sound of Music were my top two musicals i could remember and so when I got Disney+, when I saw those two musicals I fucking slammed my phone on my charger and watched them back to back. I keep rewatching newsies too god fucking BLESS this movie and the soundtrack

  22. Natalie Meyers

    I cannot help but hear The Scout from TF2

    [WUT] Tiffleaf

    What do u like more CS:GO or tf2

  23. Charis Negley

    Both the voice and instrumental at 1:25 are so amazing and my FAVORITE part of the song. Sounds so much like a western saloon or something

  24. Anahi Hermreck

  30. beebe boom

    I got recommended this song randomly, and it's been around a year after my school began preparing to do this play. I had created a playlist and listened to nothing but newsies songs to prepare and memorize the songs. Getting this now has been nice and nostalgic.

    TL;DR: Got nostalgia from song because my school did play.

  31. OrangeCrush Fizzy

    Where do I think I hear Mike faist even though he Doesn't sing this song and the delancy's don't really sing (wish mike faist was in my bootleg)

  32. Nyota Akito

    Me: Listen to the soundtrack for the first time. Don't know any context. Cast: "WHO ASKED YOU"

    Me: Laugh two minutes straight.

  33. LissaBunny

    I kind of wish they didn't change the "Welcome to New York" line from the movie. I really liked that part from the movie. Other than that, this musical is *flawless* .

  34. Todorki Shoto

    Dont know why but I can see anthony padilla playing one of these guys

    Hey
    That's my cigar
    You'll steal another
    Hey, look, it's bath time at the zoo
    I thought that I'd surprise my mother
    If you can find her
    Who asked you?
    From Bottle Alley to the Harbor
    There's easy pickings guaranteed
    Try any banker, bum, or barber
    They almost all knows how to read
    It's a crooked game we're playin'
    One we'll never lose
    Long as suckers don't mind payin'
    Just to get bad news
    Ain't it a fine life
    Carrying the banner through it all
    A mighty fine life
    Carrying the banner tough and tall
    When the bell rings
    We goes where we wishes
    We's as free as fishes
    Sure beats washing dishes
    What a fine life

    Ho ho, partly cloudy clear by evenin'
    Ha and the limp sells fifty papes a week, all by itself
    I don't need the limp to sell papes
    I got personality
    It takes a smile that spreads like butter
    The kind that turns a lady's head
    It takes an orphan with a stutter
    Who's also blind
    And mute
    And dead
    Summer stinks and winters freezing
    When you works outdoors
    Start out sweatin'
    End up sneezin'
    In between it pours
    Still it's a fine life
    Carrying the banner with me chums (so it's a fine life)
    (Carrying the banner with me chums) a bunch of big shots
    Tossin' out a freebie to the bums (a bunch of bigh shots, tossin' out a freebie)
    Hey hat's the hold up?
    Waiting makes me antsy
    I likes livin' chancey
    Harlem to Delancey
    What a fine life

    Wish I could catch a breeze
    Just two years old (maybe it's worth a shot)
    All I can catch is fleas
    If I hate the headline
    I'll make up a headline
    And I'll say anything I have'ta

    Always out there (jeez, I bet if I just stayed a little longer at the circus)
    Carrying the banner
    We'll all be out there
    Carrying the banner man to man
    We're always out there
    Soakin' every sucker that we can
    Here's the headline
    Newsies on a mission
    Kill the competition
    Sell the next edition
    We'll be out there
    Carrying the banner
    See us out there
    Carrying the banner
    Always out there
    Carrying the banner
    Ah, ah, ah, go

    [Albert:]
    You'll steal another!

    [Specs:]
    Hey, look! it's bath time at the zoo

    [Henry:]
    I thought that I'd surprise my mother

    [Albert:]

    [Newsies:]

    [Jack:]
    It's a crooked game we're playin'

    Long as suckers don't mind payin'
    Just to get bad news

    [Newsies:]
    Ain't it a fine life!
    Carrying the banner through it all
    A mighty fine life!
    Carrying the banner tough and tall
    When the bell rings
    We goes where we wishes
    We's as free as fishes
    Sure beats washing dishes
    What a fine life
    Carrying the banner home-free all!

    [Finch:]
    Hey, crutchie, what's your leg say, gonna rain?

    [Crutchie:]

    Ho-ho, partly cloudy clear by evenin'

    [Race:]
    Ha! and the limp sells fifty papes a week, all by itself!

    [Crutchie:]
    I don't need the limp to sell papes
    I got personality
    It takes a smile that spreads like butter
    The kind that turns a lady's head

    It takes an orphan with a stutter

    Who's also blind

    [Albert:]
    And mute

    [Elmer:]
    And dead!

    [Crutchie, Buttons, Jo-Jo:]
    Summer stinks and winters freezing
    When you works outdoors

    [Jack, Tommy Boy, Crutchie, Buttons, Jo-Jo:]
    Start out sweatin
    End up sneezin'
    In between it pours!

    [Newsies:]
    Still it's a fine life
    Carrying the banner with me chums
    A bunch of big shots
    Tossin' out a freebie to the bums

    [Finch:]
    Hey! what's the hold up?
    Waiting makes me antsy
    I likes livin' chancey

    [Newsies:]
    Harlem to delancey
    What a fine life!

    [Buttons:]
    All I can catch is fleas

    [Race:]
    Years old

    [Jack:]
    If I hate the headline
    I'll make up a headline

    [Jack and Crutchie:]
    And I'll say anything I have'ta
