Autor: Stephen Sondheim

Mrs. Lovett
Toby!
Where are you, love?

Where is he?

Nothing’s gonna harm you –
Not while I’m around.

Todd
Toby? Toby?

Mrs. Lovett
Nothing’s gonna harm you,
Darling –
Not while I’m around.

Todd
Toby…

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

Johanna
Safe? So we run away then all our dreams come true?

Anthony
I hope so.

Johanna
I’ve never had dreams. Only nightmares.

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

Johanna
No, Anthony, they never go away.

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

Beggar woman
Beadle!…Beadle!…
No good hiding, I saw you!
Are you in there stll?
Beadle!…Beadle!…
Beadle, dear, Beadle…
Beadle deedle deedle deedle deedle dumpling,
Beadle, dumpling, Be-deedle…

Todd
Who are you? What are you doing fere!?

Beggar woman
Evil this is. The stink of evil – from – below – from her! She’s the devil’s wife! Oh, beware her, sir. she with no pity in her heart.

Hey, don’t I know you, mister?

Judge
Mr. Todd?
Where is she?

Todd
Below, you honor. With my neighbor. Thank heaves the sailor did not molest her. Thank heavens, too, she has seen the error of her ways.

Judge
She has?

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

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

Todd
Yes.

Judge
Excellent, my friend!

Todd
How about a shave? Sit, sir, sit.

Judge
Ohhhhhh,
Pretty women!

Todd
Pretty women, yes.

Judge
Johanna, Johanna…

Todd
Pretty women…

Pretty women…
Are a wonder…

Pretty women!

Judge Todd
What we do for
Pretty women! Pretty women!
Blowing out their candles Blowing out their candles
Or combing out their hair… Or combing out their hair…
Then they leave…
Even when they leave you Even when they leave,
And vanish, they somehow The still
Can still remain Are there,
There with you, there… They’re there…

Judge
How seldom it is one meets a fellow spirit!

Todd
With fellow tastes – in women, at least.

Judge
What’s that?

Todd
The years have no doubt 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
Benjamin Barker!

Todd
Benjamin Barker!

Rest now my friend,
Rest now forever.
Sleep now the untroubled
Sleep of the angels…

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

Mrs. Lovett
I was only thinking of you!

Todd
You lied to me.

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

Todd
Lucy…

Mrs. Lovett
Said she took the poison – she did-
Never said that she died.
Poor thing she lived…

Todd
I’ve com home again…

Mrs. Lovett
But it left her weak in the head,
All she did for months was just lie there in bed-

Todd
Lucy…

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

Todd
Oh, my God…

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

Todd
Lucy…

Mrs. Lovett
I’d be twice the wife she was!
I love you!
Could that thing have cared for you
Like me?

Todd
What have I done?!…

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.

Mrs. Lovett Todd
Do you mean it? No, come here, my love
Everything I did I swear
I though
Was only for the best, Not a thing to fear
Believe me! My love…
Can we still be What’s dead
Married? Is dead.

Todd
The history of the world, my pet-

Mrs. Lovett
Ooh, Mr. Todd
Ooh, Mr. Todd,
Leave it to me…

Todd
Is learn forgiveness and try to forget.

Mrs. Lovett
By the sea, Mr. Todd,
We’ll be comfy-cozy.
By the sea, Mr. Todd,
Where there’s no one nosy…

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

Ambos
Just keep living it,
Really living it-!

Todd
There was a barber and his wife,
And she was beautiful.
A foolish barber and his wife,
She was his reason and his wife.
And she was beautiful.
And she was virtuous.
And he was –
