Mena Massoud – One Jump Ahead Lyrics

One Jump Ahead Lyrics by Mena Massoud (From “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

Street rat!
Take that!

Just a little snack, guys

Rip him open
Take it back, guys

I can take a hint
Gotta face the facts
You’re my only friend, Abu!

[Harem Girls]
Oh, it’s sad, Aladdin’s hit the bottom
He’s become a one-man rise in crime

[Harem Manager]
I’d blame parents except he hasn’t got ’em

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

[Guard, Merchant, Aladdin and Woman]
Stop, thief!

Let’s not be too hasty

Still I think he’s rather tasty

Gotta eat to live, gotta steal to eat
Otherwise we’d get along

[Aladdin (and the Guards)]
One jump ahead of the hoofbeats
One hop ahead of the hump
(Street Rat!)
One trick ahead of disaster
They’re quick, but I’m much faster

Here goes
Better throw my hand in
Wish me happy landing
All I gotta do is jump!
