Does this satisfy

your greed?

Oh, indeed it does.

Indeed it does.

Gonzorgo, Rodrigo, let us scheme.

I embezzle

and I swindle

and I keep 2 sets

of books

and the income tax


always gives me

dirty looks

now the thought

of Mary's money

has a very strong appeal

so underhandedly

I've planned

another shady deal

and I won't be happy

till I get it


some papers she will sign

she will never have

a hint

that in the finer print

her inheritance is mine,

all mine

we enjoy

committing mayhem

for a monetary gain

and we specialize

in crimes

which are

completely inhumane

now we're on our way

to steal some sheep

and drown the boy

at sea

and then directly

we'll collect

a very handsome fee

and we won't be happy

till we get it

in some lagoon, a body

soon will splash

we're eager to proceed

to do this evil deed

just as long

as we are paid in cash

we're an awful gruesome


and we're rotten

to the core

of the jobs we pull,

you'll see some

that will make you

hate us more

whether larceny

or murder

makes no difference

what the crime

we'll forge a check

or cut your neck

if we can make a dime

and we won't be happy

till we get it

oh, what a shame

they'll hate our name

in town

but what are we to do?

unhappily, it's true

we'll take anything

that's not nailed down

and we won't be happy

till we get it

Mary, Mary

quite contrary

how does

your garden grow?

with silver bells

and cockle shells

and pretty little maids

in a row


Did you bring

the mallet?

Good. Now remember, you hit him

on the head with the mallet,

and I'll put him in

the sack. Is that clear?

Not now.

He isn't

even here yet.

Now, we'll wait

until they...

Get ready.
