Musical Monday #103

Today is a pick-your-favourite musical number!  Personally, I'm surprised by how annoying all three are, considering it's quite a good song.  Well, 'song' may be a stretch as it's mostly just two words repeated over and over.

Easy Street
Written by Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin

from Annie (1982)
Performed by Carol Burnett, Tim Curry and Bernadette Peters
from Annie (1999)
Performed by Kathy Bates, Alan Cumming and Kristin Chenoweth
from Annie (2014)
Performed by Cameron Diaz and Bobby Cannavale 

I think I'd go with the middle one, even if it is so stagey you're afraid they might fall into the orchestra pit.

Which one do you like best?
