The Final Scene Lyrics

Original Broadway production 1979
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street the Musical - The Final Scene Lyrics


MRS. LOVETT:
Die! Die! God in heaven - die! You! Can it be?
How all the demons in Hell are sent to torment me! Quick! Into the oven with her!

TODD:
Why did you scream? Does the Judge live still?

MRS. LOVETT:
He was clutching, holding on to me dress, but now he's finished.

TODD:
No, don't worry about them. Open the oven doors.

MRS. LOVETT:
No!

TODD:
Open the doors, I say!

MRS. LOVETT:
No! Don't go near her!!

TODD:
What's the matter with you, woman? It's only a silly old beggar-
Oh no, oh my God..."Don't I know you?" she said...
You knew she lived. From the moment I came into your shop you knew my Lucy lived!

MRS. LOVETT:
I was only thinking of you!

TODD:
Lucy...

MRS. LOVETT:
Your Lucy! A crazy hag picking bones and rotten spuds out of alley ashcans!
Would you have wanted to know that she ended up like that?

TODD:
You lied to me.

MRS. LOVETT:
No, no, not lied 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 come 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 loved you!

TODD:
Lucy...

MRS. LOVETT:
I'd be twice the wife she was!
I love you!

TODD:
What have I done?...

MRS. LOVETT:
Could that thing have cared for you
Like me?

TODD:
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 thought
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:
Oh, 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-cosy.
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-!

BOTH:
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 life.
And she was beautiful.
And she was virtuous.
And he was-
Naive.

TOBIAS:
Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker man.
Bake me a cake-
No,
Bake me a pie-
To delight my eye,
And I will sigh
If the crust be high...
Mr. Todd. Pat him and prick him and mark him with a B,
and put him in the oven for baby and me!
