So, they sing Easy Street well before Annie goes on the radio and Warbucks offers the 50 grand. In Easy Street, it's obvious they're already trying to find a way to get money.
If Warbucks hadn't offered the 50 grand, what do you imagine Rooster et. al would have done instead of pretending to be the Mudges?
