Letras de City on Fire

[Company]
The engine roared, the motor hissed
And who could see how the road would twist?
In Sweeney’s ledger the entries matched
A beadle arrived, and a beadle dispatched
To satisfy the hungry god of Sweeney Todd
The demon barber of Fleet
(Sweeney!)
Street
Sweeney!
Sweeney! Sweeney! Sweeney!
Sweeney! Sweeney!
 
[Lunatics]
City on fire!
Rats in the grass
And the lunatics yelling in the streets
It’s the end of the world! Yes!
City on fire!
Hunchbacks dancing
Stirrings in the ground
And the whirring of giant wings
Watch out!
Look!
Blotting out the moonlight
Thick black rain falling on the
City on fire!
City on fire!
City on fire!
 
[Johanna]
Will we be married on Sunday?
That’s what you promised
Married on Sunday!
That was last August
Kiss me!
 
[Lunatics]
City on fire!
Rats in the grass
And the lunatics yelling in the streets
It’s the end of the world! Yes!
City on fire!
Hunchbacks kissing
Stirrings in the graves
And the screaming of giant winds
Watch out! Look!
Crawling on the chimneys
Great black crows screeching at the
City on fire!
City on fire!
City on fire!
 
[Mrs. Lovett]
Toby! Where are you, love?
 
[Todd]
Toby! Where are you, lad?
 
[Mrs. Lovett]
Nothing’s gonna harm you
 
[Todd]
Toby!
 
[Mrs. Lovett]
Not while I’m around
 
[Todd]
Toby!
 
[Mrs. Lovett]
Where are you hiding?
Nothing’s gonna harm you, darling
 
[Todd]
Nothing to be afraid of, boy
 
[Mrs. Lovett]
Not while I’m around
 
[Todd]
Toby
 
[Mrs. Lovett]
Demons are prowling everywhere
Nowadays
 
[Todd]
Toby
 
[Lunatics]
City on fire!
Rats in the streets
And the lunatics yelling at the moon
It’s the end of the world! Yes!
 
[Beggar woman]
Beadle! Beadle!
No good hiding, I saw you
Are you in there still
Beadle? Beadle?
Get her, but watch it
She’s a wicked one, she’ll deceive you
With her fancy gowns
And her fancy airs
And her
Mischief! Mischief!
Devil’s work!
Where are you, Beadle?
Beadle
 
[Lunatics]
City on fire!
Rats in the grass
And the lunatics yelling in the streets
It’s the end of the world! Yes!
City on fire!
Hunchbacks kissing
Stirrings in the graves
And the screaming of giant winds
Watch out! Look!
Crawling on the chimneys
Great black crows screeching at the
City on fire!
 
[Anthony]
Mr. Todd?
 
[Johanna]
No one here. Where is this Mr. Todd?
 
[Anthony]
No matter. He’ll be back in a moment, for I trust him as I trust my right arm. Wait for him here. I’ll return with the coach in less than half an hour.
 
[Johanna]
But they are after us still. What if they trace us here? Oh, Anthony, please let me come with you.
 
[Anthony]
No, my darling, there is no safety for you on the street.
 
[Johanna]
But dressed in these sailor’s clothes, who’s to know it is I?
 
[Anthony]
No, the risk is too great
Ah, miss
Look at me, look at me, miss, oh
Look at me please, oh
Favor me, favor me with your glance
Ah, miss
Soon we’ll be, soon we’ll be gone
And sailing the seas
And happily, happily wed in France
 
[Both]
And we’ll sail the world
And see its wonders
From the pearls of Spain
To the rubies of Tibet
 
[Anthony]
And then come home to London
Some day
 
[Johanna]
And then home
Some day
 
[Anthony]
I’ll be back before those lips have time to lose that smile
 
[Beggar woman]
Beadle!
Beadle! Where are you?
Beadle, dear!
Beadle!
Beadle deedle deedle deedle deedle dumpling
Beadle dumpling, be-deedle dumpling
 
[Todd]
You! What are you doing here?
 
[Beggar woman]
Ah, evil is here, sir. The stink of evil from below, from her! Beadle dear, Beadle!
 
[Todd]
Out of here, woman
 
[Beggar woman]
She’s the devil’s wife! Oh, beware her, sir. Beware of her. She with no pity in her heart.
 
[Todd]
Out, I say!
 
[Beggar woman]
Hey, don’t I know you, mister?
 
[Turpin]
Mr. Todd, sir!
 
[Todd]
The judge. I have no time!
