    Judge Turpin: "Mr. Todd?"

    Sweeney Todd: "At your service... An honour to receive
    your patronage, my lord."

    Judge Turpin: "Do you know me, sir?"

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

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

    Sweeney Todd: The closest I ever gave

    [Sweeney Todd whistles]

    Judge Turpin: "You're in a merry mood today, Mr. Todd."

    Sweeney Todd: 'Tis your delight, sir, catching fire
    From one man to the next

    Judge Turpin: 'Tis true, sir, love can still inspire
    The blood to pound, the heart leap higher
    What more--

    Sweeney Todd: What more

    BOTH: Can man require

    Judge Turpin: Than love, sir?

    Sweeney Todd: More than love, sir

    Judge Turpin: What, sir?

    Sweeney Todd: Women

    Judge Turpin: Ah, yes - women

    Sweeney Todd: Pretty women

    Judge Turpin: Bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom-bom

    [Sweeney Todd whistles]

    Sweeney Todd: Now then, my friend
    Now to your purpose
    Patience - enjoy it
    Revenge can't be taken in haste

    Judge Turpin: Make haste, and if we wed, you'll be commended, sir

    Sweeney Todd: My lord,
    And who, may it be said is your intended, sir?

    Judge Turpin: My ward

    "And pretty as a rosebud."

    Sweeney Todd: "Pretty as her mother?"

    Judge Turpin: "What? What was that?"

    Sweeney Todd: "Nothing, sir. Nothing."

    Pretty women
    Sipping coffee
    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 Turpin: Silhouetted

    Sweeney Todd: Stay within you

    Judge Turpin: Glancing

    Sweeney Todd: Stay forever

    Judge Turpin: Breathing lightly

    Sweeney Todd: Pretty women

    BOTH: Pretty women

    Sweeney Todd: Blowing out their,

    Judge Turpin: Blowing out their

    BOTH: Candles

    Sweeney Todd: Or - combing out their,

    Judge Turpin: Combing out their

    BOTH: Hair

    Judge Turpin: Then they leave--

    Sweeney Todd: Even when they leave,


    Judge Turpin: Even when they leave you and vanish
    They somehow can still remain
    There with you
    There with you

    Sweeney Todd: They still
    Are there
    They're there

    BOTH: Ah, pretty women

    Sweeney Todd: At their mirrors

    Judge Turpin: In their gardens

    Sweeney Todd: Letter-writing

    Judge Turpin: Flower-picking

    Sweeney Todd: Weather-watching

    BOTH: How they make a man sing!
    Proof of heaven
    As you're living
    Pretty women, sir!
    Pretty women, yes!
    Pretty women, sir!

    Sweeney Todd: Pretty women, here's to
    Pretty women, all the
    Pretty women...
