CAPTION: England, 1747
(Sounds of a coach and horses, galloping)
Moore: Stand and deliver!
Coachman: Not on your life (SHOT) ... aagh!
Moore: Let that be a warning to you all. You move at your

any more, but the other one is, so that's one of you dead for
sure...or just about for sure anyway. It certainly wouldn't be worth
your while risking it because I'm a very good shot. I practice every

Moore: Yes, lupins. Come on, come on.
Parson: What do you mean, lupins?
Moore: Don't try to play for time.
Parson: I'm not, but... the *flower* lupin?
Moore: Yes, that's right.
Squire: Well we haven't got any lupins.
Moore: Look, my friends. I happen to know that this is the
Girl: Oh, here you are.
Moore: In a bunch, in a bunch!
Moore: Come on, Concorde! (Gallops off)
Chorus (sings): Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore, galloping
through the sward,
Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore, and his horse Concorde.
He steals from the rich, he gives to the poor,
Mr. Moore, Mr. Moore, Mr. Moore.
