Mr. Todd – you have to help me – Mr. Todd, please.
Mr. Todd.

Todd

Out. Out!

Mrs. Lovett
All this shouting and running about –
What’s happened?

Todd
I had him!
His throat was bare
Beneath my hand -!

No I had him!
His throat was there,
And he’ll never come again!

Mrs. Lovett
Easy now.
Hush, love, hush,
I keep telling you –

Todd
When?!

Mrs. Lovett
What’s your rush?

Todd
Why did I wait?
You told me to wait!
Now he’ll never come again!

There’s a hole on the world
Like a great black pit
And it’s filled with people
Who are filled with s*it
And the vermin of the world
Inhabit it-
But not for long!

They all deserve to die!
Tell you why, Mrs. Lovett,
Tell you why…
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 in with his foot
In the other one’s face –
Look at me, Mrs. Lovett
Look at you!

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!

And I’ll never see Johanna,
No, I’ll never hug my girl to me –
Finished!

All right! You sir,
How about a shave?
Come and visit
Your good friend Sweeney!
You, sir, too, sir,
Welcome to the grave!
I will have vengeance,
I will have salvation!

Who, sir? You, sir?
No one in the chair,
Come on, come on
Sweeney’s waiting!
I want you bleeders!
You, sir – anybody!
Gentlemen, now don’t be shy!
Not one man, no
Nor ten men,
Nor a hundred
Can assuage me –
I will have you!

And I will get him back
Even as he gloats.
In the meantime I’ll practice
On less honorable throats.

And my Lucy lies in ashes
And I’ll never see my girl again,
But the work waits,
I’m alive at last
And I’m full of joy!
