A song that without noticing, I’m already singing!

Mrs. Lovett

Seems a downright shame…

Todd: Shame?

Lovett:

Seems an awful waste

Such a nice, plum frame

Wot’s ‘is name has..

Had…

Has!

Nor it can’t be traced…

Bus’ness needs a lift,

Debts to be erased…

Think of it as thrift

As a gift,

If you get my drift!

Seems an awful waste…

I mean, with the price of meat

What it is,

When you get it,

If you get it…

Tood: Hah!

Lovett:

Good you got it!

Take for instance, Mrs. Mooney and her pie shop!

Bus’ness never better using only pussycats and toast!

And a pussy’s good for maybe six or seven at the most!

And I’m sure they can’t compare as far as taste!


[Simultaneously]

Todd:

Mrs.Lovett, what a charming notion

Lovett: Well, it does seem a waste…

Todd:

Mrs.Lovett, how I’ve lived without you all these years, I’ll never know!

How delectable!

Also undetectable!

Lovett:

Think about it!

Lots of other gentlemen’ll soon be comin’ for a shave,

Won’t they?

Think of

All them

Pies!

Todd:

For what’s the sound of the world out there?

Lovett:

What Mr.Todd?

What Mr.Todd?

What is that sound?

Todd:

Those crunching noises pervading the air!

Lovett:

Yes Mr.Todd!

Yes Mr.Todd!

Yes all around! 

Todd:

It’s man devouring man, my dear!

Both:

And [Lovett: Then] who are we to deny it in here?


Todd: What is that?

Lovett:

It’s priest. Have a little priest.

Todd:

Is it really good?

Lovett:

Sir, it’s too good at least!

Then again they don’t commit sins of the flesh, so it’s pretty fresh.

Todd: 

Awful lot of fat.

Lovett:

Only where it sat.

Todd:

Haven’t you got poet, or something like that?

Lovett:

No, y’see, the trouble with poet is ‘ow do you know it’s deceased?

Try the priest!


Lawyer’s rather nice.

Todd:

If it’s for a price.

Lovett:

Order something else, though, to follow, since no one should swallow it twice!

Todd:

Anything that’s lean?

Lovett:

Well, then, if you’re British and loyal, you might enjoy Royal Marine!

Anyway, it’s clean.

Though of course, it tastes of wherever it’s been!

Todd:

Is that squire, on the fire?

Lovett:

Mercy no sir, look closer, you’ll notice it’s grocer!

Todd:

Looks thicker,

More like vicar!

Lovett:

No, it has to be grocer—

It’s green!


Todd:

The history of the world, my love—

Lovett:

Save a lot of graves, do a lot of relatives favours! 

Todd:

Is those below serving those up above!

Lovett:

Ev’rybody shaves, so there should be plenty of flavours!

Todd:

How gratifying for once to know

Both:

That those above will serve those down below!


Todd: What is that?

Lovett:

It’s fop.

Finest in the shop.

And we have some shepherd’s pie peppered~

With actual shepherd on top!

And I’ve just begun—

Here’s the politician, so oily

It’s served with a doily

Have one!

Todd:

Put it on a bun

Well, you never know if it’s going to run!

Lovett:

Try the friar

Fried, it’s drier!

Todd:

No, the clergy is really too coarse and too meanly!

Lovett:

Then actor, that’s compacter!

Todd:

Yes, and always arrives overdone!

I’ll come again when you have JUDGE on the menu!


Have charity towards the world, my pet!

Lovett:

Yes, yes, I know my love!

Todd:

We’ll take the customers that we can get!

Lovett:

High-born and low, my love!

Todd:

We’ll not discriminate great from small!

No, we’ll serve anyone

Meaning anyone,

Both:

And to anyone

At all!
