Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street the Musical - The Letter Lyrics
Most honourable Judge Turpin-
I venture thus to write you this-
Urgent note to warn you that the hot-blooded
Sailor has abducted your ward Johanna-
Johanna - Johanna-
From the institution where you
So wisely confined her but,
Hoping to earn your favour,
I have persuaded the boy to lodge her here tonight
At my tonsorial parlour-
In Fleet Street.
If you want her again in your arms,
After the night falls.
She will be waiting.
Your obedient humble servant,
[Thanks to Sam Wilkes for lyrics]
