KING OF THE SWINDLERS
Alternative Lyrics by Chris Bennion / Moldiwarts
(to the tune of King Of The Swingers)

Sang by Fitzwarren and King Rat in Dick Whittington

(KING RAT)
Now I’m the king of the swindlers, bad guy VIP
World renowned for messing around
And you’re nearly as bad as me

(FITZWARREN)
Well I’m the head of the council, I’m as mean as mean can be
But compared to you, I’m nothing new
And that’s what bothering me

(BOTH)
Oh, oobee do
I wanna be like you, oo oo.
I wanna walk like you, talk like you, too
You see it’s true,  someone like me
Can learn to be someone like you.

(FITZWARREN)
You may be small on niceness, but you are big on bad
You’re lust on greed and evil deeds
Are what I wish I had.

(KING RAT)
Now don’t try and kid a kidder, I’ve made a deal with you
What I desire is a big fat liar
To help my dreams comes true

(BOTH)
Oh, oobee do
I wanna be like you, oo oo.
I wanna walk like you, talk like you, too
(KING RAT) You see it’s true, someone like me
Can learn to be a politician too
(FITZWARREN) I can be a sneaky rat like you.
(BOTH) Someone like me can be someone like you.
