Look out! There's danger all about.
Can't you feel it in the air?
Look out! There's danger all about.
You had better beware.
Whoa – under darkening skies
Whoa – there's a full moon on the rise

Look out! There's a highwayman about.
No traveler is safe on the road.
Look out and never be in doubt –
This night is about to explode.
Whoa – through the shadows he's suddenly there.
Whoa – then you will hear and beware!

Stand and deliver! I'll take your money or your life!
Stand and deliver! And tonight... I just might... take your wife!

Look out! A coach has been surprised,
Crossin' Brannigan's moor.
No doubt the gold that's been excised
Will be given to the poor.
Whoa – for the poor are being squeezed every day
My fine friends, give it up! It's your turn to pay.

Stand and deliver! I'll take your money or your life!
Stand and deliver! And tonight... I just might... take your wife!

Look out! The gentry and the rich,
For I have taken an oath.
Look out! No matter which is which...
I will steal from you both.
Whoa – who will stand up for the weak?
Whoa – yes mine is the voice that will speak.

Stand and deliver! I'll take your money or your life!
Stand and deliver! And tonight... I just might... take your wife!

Stand and deliver! I'll take your money or your life!
Stand and deliver! And tonight... I just might... take your wife!
