Sweeney Todd the Musical - The Ballad of Sweeney Todd: "The Engine Roared, The Motor Hissed" Lyrics


COMPANY:
The engine roared, the motor hissed,
And who could see that 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,

ALL:
The demon barber of Fleet...
Sweeney!
Street.
Sweeney!
Sweeney! Sweeney! Sweeney! Sweeney!
Sweeeeeneeeeey!
