Final Scene Lyrics

Mrs. Lovett:Toby!
Where are you, love?

-[whisper]- “Where is he?”

Nothing’s gonna harm you--
Not while I’m around

Sweeney Todd:“Toby?” … “Toby?”

Mrs. Lovett:Nothing’s gonna harm you, darlin’
Not while I’m around

Sweeney Todd: “Toby?”…

[Instrumental]

Anthony Hope: “Mr. Todd!
You wait for him here. I’ll return with the coach in
less
than half an hour. Don’t worry, no one will recognize
you.
You’re safe now.”

Johanna: “Safe? So we run away and then all our dreams
come true?”

Anthony Hope: “I hope so.”

Johanna: “I’ve never had dreams. Only nightmares.”

Anthony Hope: “Johanna, when we’re free of this place,
all the ghosts will go away.”

Johanna: “No, Anthony. They never go away.”

Anthony Hope: “I’ll be right back to you. Half an hour
and we’ll be free.”

[Instrumental]

Beggar Woman: Beadle!… Beadle!…
No good hidin’, I saw you!
Are you in there still?
Beadle!… Beadle!…
Beadle, dear, Beadle…

[Brief Instrumental]

Beggar Woman:Beadle-deedle-deedle-deedle-deedle-
dumpling
Beadle, dumpling, Be-deedle-deedle-deedle-deedle-
deedle-deedle-deedle-deedle-deedle-deedle-deedle…!

Sweeney Todd: “Who are you? What are you doing in
here!?”

Beggar Woman: “Evil this is, sir. The stink of evil--
from below--from her!
She’s the devil’s wife! Beware her, sir. She with no
pity
in her heart.”

Hey-- don’t I know you, mister?

Judge Turpin: “Mr. Todd?”

[Dramatic Instrumental]

Judge Turpin:“Where is she?”

Sweeney Todd: “Below, your honor. With my neighbour.
Thank heavens
the sailor did not molest her. Thank heavens too, she
has
seen the error of her ways.”

Judge Turpin: “She has?”

Sweeney Todd: “Oh yes, your lesson was well learned.
She speaks only of you, longing for forgiveness”

Judge Turpin: “Then she shall have it.
She’ll be here soon, you say?”

Sweeney Todd: “Yes.”

Judge Turpin: “Excellent, my friend.”

Sweeney Todd: “How ‘bout a shave? Sit, sir, sit.”

Judge Turpin: Ah… pretty women

Sweeney Todd: Pretty women, yes

Judge Turpin: Johanna, Johanna…

Sweeney Todd: Pretty women
Pretty women are a wonder
Pretty women

Judge Turpin: What we do for women!

Sweeney Todd: Pretty women
Blowing out their…

Judge Turpin:Blowing out their

BOTH: Candles

Sweeney Todd: Or-- combing out their…

Judge Turpin:Combing out their

BOTH: Hair

Judge Turpin: Then they leave

Sweeney Todd:Even when they leave…

[Simultaneously:]

Judge Turpin:Even when they leave you and vanish
They somehow can still remain
There with you
There

Sweeney Todd:They still
Are there
They’re there

Judge Turpin: “How seldom it is one meets a fellow
spirit!”

Sweeney Todd: “With fellow tastes-- in women, at
least.”

Judge Turpin: “What’s that?”

Sweeney Todd: “The years no doubt have changed me, sir.
But then, I suppose, the face of a barber-- the
face of a prisoner in the dock-- is not particularly
memorable.”

Judge Turpin: “Benjamin Barker!”

Sweeney Todd: “BENJAMIN BARKER!!!”

[Dramatic Instrumental]

Sweeney Todd:Rest now, my friend
Rest now - forever
Sleep now the untroubled
Sleep of the angels…

[Instrumental]

Sweeney Todd:“'Don’t I know you?' she said.
…You knew she lived.”

Mrs. Lovett:“I was only thinkin’ of you!”

Sweeney Todd: “You lied to me.”

Mrs. Lovett: No, no, not lied at all
No, I never lied!

Sweeney Todd: Lucy…

Mrs. Lovett:Said she took the poison-- she did
Never said that she died

Sweeney Todd: I’ve come home again...

Mrs. Lovett:Poor thing!
She lived but it left her weak in the head
All she did for months was just lie there in bed--

Sweeney Todd: Lucy…

Mrs. Lovett:Should’ve been in a hospital
Wound up in Bedlam instead
Poor thing!

Sweeney Todd: Oh, my God…

Mrs. Lovett:Better you should think she was dead
Yes, I lied ‘cos I love you!

Sweeney Todd:Lucy…

Mrs. Lovett:I’d be twice the wife she was!
I love you!

Sweeney Todd: What have I done!?…

Mrs. Lovett:Could that thing have cared for you
like me?

Sweeney Todd:Mrs. Lovett
You’re a bloody wonder
Eminently practical and yet
Appropriate as always
As you’ve said repeatedly
There’s little point in dwelling on the past!

[Simultaneously:]

Sweeney Todd: Now come here, my love…
Not a thing to fear, my love…
What’s dead, is dead!

Mrs. Lovett:Do you mean it?
Everything I did
I swear I thought was only for the best
Believe me!
Can we
Still be
Married?

Sweeney Todd: The history of the world, my pet--

Mrs. Lovett:Oh, Mr. Todd
Oh, Mr. Todd
Leave it to me...

Sweeney Todd: Is learn forgiveness and try to forget

Mrs. Lovett:By the sea, Mr. Todd, we’ll be comfy-
cosy
By the sea, Mr. Todd, where there’s no one nosy

Sweeney Todd: And life is for the alive, my dear
So let’s keep living it--!

BOTH: Just keep living it!
Really living it--

Mrs. Lovett:AARRGHHHH!!
AARRGHHHHHHH!!
AARRGHHHHHHHHH!!

[Dramatic Instrumental]

Sweeney Todd: There was a barber and his wife
And she was beautiful
A foolish barber and his wife
She was his reason and his life
And she was beautiful
And she was virtuous
And he was--

[Instrumental to End]
