"More?"

Oliver Twist is a novel by Charles Dickens published in serialized form between 1837 and 1839.

Songs from the 1960 musical adaptation, with music and lyrics by Lionel Bart, have become standards. One such number, "Consider Yourself," has been performed on multiple occasions, including performances on Sesame Street and The Muppet Show.
