Newsies Original Broadway Cast - The Bottom Line (Reprise) Lyrics




[Pulitzer:]
Time's running out, kid
So what do you say?
Cowboy or convict
I win either way
Your abject surrender
Was always the bottom line

Gentlemen, escort our guest to the cellar so he might reflect in solitude

Too bad you've no job, Jack
But you did resign
Too bad you've no family
But you can't have mine
Be glad you're alive, boy
I'd say that's the bottom line

[Seitz:]
Like the pied piper you knew what to play

[Pulitzer:]
'Till those kids all believed you were right

[Mayor:]
Lucky for them all but one got away

[Pulitzer:]
They may not be so lucky tonight....

  1. Krafti 11

    I got Pulitzer in my musical

  2. Jayde Flink

    why does jack's voice change in this by a lot?

  3. Owen Privee

    Me, playing Pulitzer in my schools performance of this, looking at the comment section on this video:... well shit

  4. Rixel BloodWalker

    0:32 is what I say to antivax kids

  5. Alexander Hammy Ham

    Why does this sound like that song that Scar sings in The Lion King?

  6. Heather McDaniels

    Anybody ever heard of Overshadowed Theatrical Productions? They did this this past summer, and IT. WAS. AMAZING! We went on a night when it was an understudy for Jack, and he was awesome! Ryan is an amazing actor, he does such a good job with the emotions. I was crying so much that night.

  7. Gabby Gail

    Who else wants to fight the world after Pulitzer's songs? Idk. I feel like I can fight anyone if Pulitzer comes in. My friends have seperate playlists eithout his songs for this reason.

  8. Arck

    Charlie Drawz

    @The Implications Have you watched Newsises?

  12. kez.

    “Too bad you’ve no family, but you can’t have mine” Why does that like always hit me. Poor kid, no family and then gets bribed by a ‘Rich greedy sourpuss’.

  13. Stacie Tonucci

  14. Pari TMG

    Steve Blanchard's voice reblog if you agree

  15. Lively Lynx Studios

    Say no to this, appropriate version :')

  16. cornwallis

    I hate Pulitzer, but he has a lovely voice, and I can't help but enjoy a good, classy villain (and his songs).

    Inés de Erausquin

    Indeed. He's so silky-voiced and wicked. A perfect love-to-hate-able stage villain m

    Spork Person

    I hate how short his songs are. They're so good though

    Clare Gundersen

    He reminds me of Shere Khan, voice wise XD

  17. Jorden Amir

    When Pulitzer sings this it really creeps me out

  18. Saudia Tate

    i love the way he sings the words "the bottom line" in this song SOO much

  19. Saudia Tate

    where is Watch What Happens on this playlist? the original one not the reprise...

  20. Manuel Orozco

    Not that I saw the show or anything but it seems Pulitzer has won the first round!

    Stacie Tonucci

    NUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU not true

    Stacie Tonucci

    He was losing ever since people heard what he was doing

  21. ciderwing

    The very beginning of this sounds like something from Les Mis tbh.

    Elle Fromm

    it always reminds me of the beginning of "so much better" from legally blonde

    Noah Schaller

    literally same exact thought. i was expecting javert

    Gabby Singz!

    He sort of sounded like Javert
