“There’s a hole in the world like a great black pit
and the vermin of the world inhabit it
and its morals aren’t worth what a pig could spit
and it goes by the name of London.
At the top of the hole sit the privileged few
Making mock of the vermin in the lonely zoo
turning beauty to filth and greed…
I too have sailed the world and seen its wonders,
for the cruelty of men is as wonderous as Peru
but there’s no place like London!”
― Stephen Sondheim, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
“They all deserve to die.
Even you, Mrs. Lovett
Even I.

For the rest of us death would be relief.”

You sir! Anybody!

And I’ll never see my girl again.

But the work waits!
I’m alive at last!
And I’m full of joy!”

There’s the one staying put in his proper place
And the one with his foot in the other one’s face

No, we all deserve to die
Even you, Mrs Lovett, even I!
Because the lives of the wicked should be made brief
For the rest of us death will be a relief
We all deserve to die.

No I’ll never hug my girl to me – finished!

“There was a barber and his wife
and she was beautiful…
a foolish barber and his wife.
She was his reason for his life…
and she was beautiful, and she was virtuous.
And he was naive.
There was another man who saw
that she was beautiful…
A biased vulture of the law
who, with a gesture of his claw
removed the barber from his plate!
And there was nothing but to wait!
And she would fall!
So soft!
So young!
So lost and oh so beautiful!

Antony (spoken)

The lady, sir…did she succumb?

Sweeney Todd (sung)

Ah, that was many years ago…
I doubt if anyone would know.
(spoken)
Now leave me, Antony.
There is somewhere I must go,
something i must find out.
Now, and alone.

Antony (spoken)

But surely we will meet again before I am off to Plymouth?

Sweeney Todd (spoken)

If you want you may well find me around Fleet Street. I wouldn’t wander.
(sung)

“My Friend
Todd: These are my friends
See how they glisten
See this one shine
How he smiles
In the light
My friend!
My faithful friend!

Speak to me, friend
Whisper, I’ll listen
I know, I know
You’ve been locked
Out of sight
All these years!
Like me, my friend!

Well, I’ve come home
To find you waiting
Home
And we’re together
And we’ll do wonders
Won’t we?

You there, my friend
Mrs. Lovett: I’m your friend too, Mr. Todd
Todd: Come, let me hold you
Mrs. Lovett: If you only knew, Mr. Todd
Todd: Now, with a sigh
Mrs. Lovett: Ooh, Mr. Todd!
Todd: You grow warm in my hand
Mrs. Lovett: You’re warm in my hand
Todd: My friend!
Mrs. Lovett: You’ve come home!
Todd: My clever friend!
Mrs. Lovett: Always had a fondness for you, I did

Todd: Rest now, my friend
Mrs. Lovett: Never you fear, Mr. Todd
Todd: Soon I’ll unfold you
Mrs. Lovett: You can move in here, Mr. Todd
Todd: Soon you’ll know
Todd and Mrs. Lovett: Splendours you’d never have dreamed all your days
Mrs. Lovett: Will be yours!
Todd: My lucky friend!
Mrs. Lovett: I’m your friend! And you’re mine!
Todd: Till now your shine
Mrs. Lovett: Don’t they shine beautiful?
Todd: Was merely silver!
Mrs. Lovett: Silver’s good enough for me, Mr. T
Todd: Friend
You shall drip rubies
You’ll soon drip precious
Rubies

At last, my arm is complete again!”

“ANTHONY:
I feel you, Johanna, I feel you
Do they think that walls can hide you?
Even now I’m at your window
I am in the dark beside you,
Buried sweetly in your yellow hair, Johanna…

SWEENEY TODD:
And are you beautiful and pale,
With yellow hair, like her
I’d want you beautiful and pale,
The way I’ve dreamed you were, Johanna…

ANTHONY:
Johanna…

SWEENEY TODD:
And if you’re beautiful, what then,
With yellow hair, like wheat?
I think we shall not meet again —
My little dove, my sweet Johanna…

ANTHONY:
I’ll steal you, Johanna…

SWEENEY TODD:
Goodbye, Johanna.
You’re gone, and yet you’re mine.
I’m fine, Johanna, I’m fine!

ANTHONY:
Johanna…

BEGGAR WOMAN:
Smoke! Smoke! Sign of the devil! Sign of the devil!
City on fire!
Witch! Witch! Smell it, sir! An evil smell!
Every night at the vespers bell —
Smoke that comes from the mouth of hell —
City on fire! City on fire!
Mischief! Mischief! Mischief…

SWEENEY TODD:
And if I never hear your voice,
My turtledove, my dear,
I still have reason to rejoice:
The way ahead is clear, Johanna…

JOHANNA:
I’ll marry Anthony Sunday
Anthony…Sunday…

ANTHONY:
I feel you…

SWEENEY TODD:
And in that darkness when I’m blind
With what I can’t forget —

ANTHONY:
Johanna…

SWEENEY TODD:
It’s always morning in my mind,
My little lamb, my pet, Johanna…

JOHANNA:
I knew you’d come for me one day…
Come for me…one day…

SWEENEY TODD/ANTHONY:
You stay, Johanna — Johanna…

SWEENEY TODD:
The way I’ve dreamed you are
Oh look, Johanna — a star!

ANTHONY:
Buried sweetly in your yellow hair…

SWEENEY TODD:
A shooting star!

BEGGAR WOMAN:
There! There! Somebody, somebody look up there!
Didn’t I tell you? Smell that air! City on fire!
Quick, sir! Run and tell!
Warn ’em all of the witch’s spell!
There it is, there it is, the unholy smell!
Tell it to the Beadle and the police as well!
Tell ’em! Tell ’em! Help! Fiend!
City on fire! City on fire!
Mischief! Mischief! Mischief…Fiend . . .
Alms…alms…for a miserable woman…

SWEENEY TODD:
And though I’ll think of you, I guess, until the day I die,
I think I miss you less and less as every day goes by,
Johanna…

ANTHONY:
Johanna…

JOHANNA:
With you beside me on Sunday,
Married on…Sunday…

SWEENEY TODD:
And you’d be beautiful and pale,
And look too much like her.
If only angels could prevail,
We’d be the way we were, Johanna…

ANTHONY:
I feel you…Johanna…

JOHANNA’S VOICE:
Married on Sunday…married on Sunday …

SWEENEY TODD:
Wake up, Johanna! Another bright red day!
We learn, Johanna, to say goodbye!

ANTHONY:
I’ll steal you!”
― Stephen Sondheim, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

“TOBIAS:

Nothing’s gonna harm you, not while I’m around.
Nothing’s gonna harm you, no sir, not while I’m around.

Demons are prowling everywhere, nowadays,
I’ll send ’em howling,
I don’t care, I got ways.

No one’s gonna hurt you,
No one’s gonna dare.
Others can desert you,
Not to worry, whistle, I’ll be there.

Demons’ll charm you with a smile, for a while,
But in time…
Nothing can harm you
Not while I’m around…

Not to worry, not to worry
I may not be smart, but I ain’t dumb
I can do it, put me to it
Show me something, I can overcome.
Not to worry, mum.

Being close and being clever
Ain’t like being true
I don’t need to,
I would never hide a thing from you,
Like some…

MRS. LOVETT:
Nothing’s gonna harm you, not while I’m around.
Nothing’s gonna harm you, darling, not while I’m around.

TOBIAS:
Demons’ll charm you with a smile, for a while,
But in time…
Nothing’s gonna harm you
Not while I’m around…”
― Stephen Sondheim, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

“Because in all of the whole human race
Mrs. Lovett, there are two kinds of men and only two
There’s the one staying put in his proper place
And the one with his foot in the other one’s face”
