Músicas: Sweeney Todd – By The Sea

 

Autor: Stephen Sondheim

Mrs. Lovett
Ooh, Mr. Todd –
I’m so happy
I could –
Eat you up, I really could!
You know what I’d like to
Do, Mr. Todd?
What I dream –
If the business stays as good,
Where I’d really like to go –
In a year or so…
Don’t you want to know?

Todd
Of course.

Mrs. Lovett
Do you really want to know?

Todd
Yes, I do.

Mrs. Lovett
By the sea, Mr. Todd,
That’s the life I covet.
By the sea, Mr. Todd,
Ooh, I know you’d love it!
You and me, Mr. T.,
We could be alone
In a house wot we’d almost own,
Down by the sea.

Todd
Anything you say.

Mrs. Lovett
Wouldn’t that e smashing?

Think how snug it’ll be
Underneath our flannel
When it’s just you and me
And the English Channel.
In our cozy retreat,
Kept all neat and tidy,
We’ll have chums over every Friday
By the sea…

Don’t you love the weather
By the sea?
We’ll grow old together
By the seaside,
Hoo! Hoo!
By the beautiful sea!

It’ll be so quiet
That who’ll come by it
Except a seagull?
Hoo! Hoo!
We shouldn’t tray it,
Though, till it’s legal
For two-hoo!

But a seaside wedding
Could be devised,
Me rumpled bedding
Legitimized.
Me eyelids’ll flutter,
I’ll turn into butter,
The moment I mutter,
“I do-hoo!”

Down by the sea,
Married nice and proper,
By the sea –
Bring along your chopper
To the seaside,
Hoo! Hoo!
By the beautiful sea!
