Músicas: Sweeney Todd – Pretty Women

Autor: Stephen Sondheim

Judge
Mr. Todd?

Todd
At your service… An honor to receive your patronage,
My lord.

Judge
Do you know me, sir?

Todd
Who in this wide world does not know the great Judge Turpin? What may I do for you today, sir? A stylish trimming of the hair? A soothing skin massage? Sit, sir, sit.

Judge
You see, sir, a man infatuate with love
Her ardent and eager slave.
So fetch the pomade and pumice stone
And lend me a more seductive tone,
A sprinkling perhaps of French cologne,
But first, sir, I think – a shave.

Todd
The closest I ever gave.

Judge
You are in merry mood today, Mr. Todd

Todd
‘Tis your delight, sir, catching fire
From one man to the next.

Judge
‘Tis true, sir, love can still inspire
The blood to pound, the heart leap higher.

Ambos
What more, what more can man require-

Judge
Than love, sir?

Todd
More than love, sir.

Judge
What, sir?

Todd
Women.

Judge
Ah yes, women.

Todd
Pretty women.

Now then, my friend.
Now to your purpose.
Patience, enjoy it.
Revenge can’t be taken in haste.

Judge
Make haste, and if we wed,
You’ll be commended, sir.

Todd
My lord…
And who, may it be said,
Is your intended, sir?

Judge
My ward.
And pretty as a rosebud
.

Todd
Pretty as her mother?

Judge
What? What was that?

Todd
Oh, nothing, sir. Nothing

Pretty women…
Fascinating…
Sipping coffee,
Dancing…
Pretty women
Are a wonder-
Pretty women.

Sitting in the window or
Standing on the stair,
Something in them
Cheers the air.

Pretty women.

Judge
Silhouetted…

Todd
Stay within you…

Judge
Glancing…

Todd
Stay forever…

Judge
Breathing lightly…

Todd
Pretty women…

Ambos
Pretty women!
Blowing out their candles or
Combing out their hair…

Judge Todd
Then they leave…
Even when they leave you Even when they leave you
And vanish, they somehow They still
Can still remain Are
There with you, There.
There with you. They’re there.

Ambos
Ah,
Pretty women…

Todd
At their mirrors…

Judge
In their gardens…

Todd
Letter-writing…

Judge
Flower-picking…

Todd
Weather-watching…

Ambos
How they make a man sing!
Proof of heaven
As you’re living-
Pretty women, sir!

Judge Todd Pretty women, yes! Pretty women, here’s to Pretty women, sir! Pretty women, all the Pretty women! Pretty women… Pretty women, sir!
