Where Is Love? Oliver


[MRS. SOWEBERRY (spoken)]

Right then, Oliver Twist,
your bed’s underneath the counter.
You don’t mind sleeping
among coffins I suppose?
It don’t much matter whether you do
or you don’t cause you can’t sleep
nowhere else!

[OLIVER]
Where is love?
Does it fall from skies above?
Is it underneat the willow tree
That I’ve been dream of?
Where is she?
Who I close my eyes to see?
Will I ever know the sweet “hello”
That’s only meant for me?
Who can say where she may hide?
Must I travel far and wide?
‘Til I am bedside the someone who
I can mean somethin to …
Where…?
Where is love?

Who can say where…she may hide?
Must I travel…far and wide?
‘Til I am beside…the someone who
I can mean…something to…
Where?
Where is love?
