Not While I'm Around Lyrics

Toby: “Seems like the Good Lord sent you for me.”

Mrs. Lovett:“You know, love, I felt quite the same
way.”

Toby: “Listen to me, please. You know there’s
nothin’ I wouldn’t
do for you. Say, if there was someone around--someone
bad--only you didn’t know it--”

Mrs. Lovett:“What is this? What are you talkin’
about?”

Toby: Nothin’s gonna harm you
Not while I’m around
Nothin’s gonna harm you - no, sir
Not while I’m around

Demons are prowlin’ everywhere
Nowadays
I’ll send ’em howlin’
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 will charm you with a smile
For a while
But in time
Nothin’ can harm you
Not while I’m around

[Instrumental]

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 somethin’ I can overcome
Not to worry, mum

Bein’ close and bein’ clever
Ain’t like bein’ true
I don’t need to
I will never
Hide a thing from you--
Like some

Mrs. Lovett:“Now Toby, dear, haven’t we had enough
of this foolish
chatter? Here, how about… I give you… a nice shiny new
penny and you go get us some toffees?”

Toby: “That’s Signor Pirelli’s purse!”

Mrs. Lovett:“No, it’s not.
--Just something Mr. T. give me for my birthday.”

Toby: “That proves it! We gotta go, ma’am--we gotta
find the
Beadle and get the law here--”

Mrs. Lovett:“Shhh, Toby. Hush, now, you’re not
goin’ anywhere. You
just sit here, nice and quiet, next to me. That’s
right...”

Nothin’s gonna harm you
Not while I’m around
Nothin’s gonna harm you, darlin’
Not while I’m around

Toby: Demons will charm you with a smile
For a while
But in time
Nothin’s gonna harm you
Not while I’m around

[Instrumental to End]
