Seems a downright shame... Shame? Seems an awful waste... Such a nice, plump frame Wot's 'is name has... Had... Has Nor it can't be traced... Bus'ness needs a lift, Debts to be erased... Think of it as thrift, As a gift, If you get my drift Seems an awful waste... I mean, with the price of meat What it is, When you get it, If you get it... Good, you got it! Take, for instance, Mrs. Mooney and her pie shop! Bus'ness never better using only pussycats and toast! Now a [bad word] #39;s good for maybe six or seven at the most! And I'm sure they can't compare as far as taste! Mrs. Lovett, what a charming notion Well, it does seem a waste... Eminently practical And yet appropriate as always! It's an idea... Mrs. Lovett, how I've lived Without you all these years, I'll never know! How delectable! Also undetectable! Think about it! Lots of other gentlemen'll Soon be comin' for a shave, Won't they? Think of All them Pies! How choice! How Rare! For what's the sound of the world out there? What, Mr. Todd? What, Mr. Todd? What is that sound? Those crunching noises pervading the air! Yes, Mr. Todd! Yes, Mr. Todd! Yes, all around! It's man devouring man, my dear! And [ Mrs. Lovett: Then] who are we to deny it in here? These are desperate times, Mrs. Lovett, and desperate measures are called for! Here we are, now! Hot out of the oven! What is that? It's priest. Have a little priest. Is it really good? Sir, it's too good, at least! Then again, they don't commit sins of the flesh, So it's pretty fresh. Awful lot of fat. Only where it sat. Haven't you got poet, or something like that? No, y'see, the trouble with poet is 'Ow do you know it's deceased? Try the priest! Lawyer's rather nice. If it's for a price. Order something else, though, to follow, Since no one should swallow it twice! Anything that's lean. Well, then, if you're British and loyal, You might enjoy Royal Marine! Anyway, it's clean. Though of course, it tastes of wherever it's been! Is that squire, On the fire? Mercy no, sir, look closer, You'll notice it's grocer! Looks thicker, More like vicar! No, it has to be grocer It's green! The history of the world, my love Save a lot of graves, Do a lot of relatives favors! Is those below serving those up above! Ev'rybody shaves, So there should be plenty of flavors! How gratifying for once to know That those above will serve those down below What is that? It's fop. Finest in the shop. And we have some shepherd's pie peppered With actual shepherd on top! And I've just begun -- Here's the politician, so oily It's served with a doily, Have one! Put it on a bun. Well, you never know if it's going to run! Try the friar, Fried, it's drier! No, the clergy is really Too coarse and too mealy! Then actor, That's compacter! Ah but always arrives overdone! I'll come again when you have judge on the menu! Have charity towards the world, my pet! Yes, yes, I know, my love! We'll take the customers that we can get! High-born and low, my love! We'll not discriminate great from small! No, we'll serve anyone, Meaning anyone, And to anyone At all! jooov.net
