Original Broadway production 1979
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street the Musical - Johanna (Reprise) Lyrics


ANTHONY:
I feel you, Johanna,
I feel you.
Do they think that walls can hide you?
Even now I'm at your window.
I am in the dark beside you,
Buried sweetly in your yellow hair,
Johanna...

TODD:
Johanna...
And are you beautiful and pale
With yellow hair, like her?
I'd want you beautiful and pale,
The way I've dreamed you were,
Johanna...

ANTHONY:
Johanna...

TODD:
And if you're beautiful, what then,
With yellow hair, like wheat?
I think we shall not meet again-
My little dove, my sweet
Johanna...

ANTHONY:
I'll steal you,
Johanna...

TODD:
Goodbye, Johanna.
You're gone, and yet you're mine.
I'm fine, Johanna,
I'm fine!

ANTHONY:
Johanna...

BEGGAR WOMAN:
Smoke! Smoke!
Sign of the Devil! Sign of the Devil!
City on fire!
Witch! Witch!
Smell it, sir! An evil smell!
Every night at the vesper's bell-
Smoke that comes from the mouth of Hell
City on fire!
City on fire...
Mischief! Mischief!
Mischief!...

TODD:
And if I never hear your voice,
My turtledove, my dear,
I still have reason to rejoice,
The way ahead is clear,
Johanna...

JOHANNA'S VOICE:
I'll marry Anthony Sunday...
Anthony Sunday...

ANTHONY:
I feel you...

TODD:
And in that darkness when I'm blind
With what I can't forget-

ANTHONY:
Johanna...

TODD:
It's always morning in my mind,
My little lamb, my pet,
Johanna...

JOHANNA'S VOICE:
I knew you'd come for me one day
Come for me...one day...

TODD:                                           ANTHONY:
You stay, Johanna--                        Johanna...

TODD:
The way I've dreamed you are
Oh look, Johanna-
A star!

ANTHONY:
Buried sweetly in your yellow hair

TODD:
A shooting star!

BEGGAR WOMAN:
There! There!
Somebody, somebody look up there!
Didn't I tell you? Smell that air!
City on fire!
Quick, sir, run and tell!
Warn 'em all of the witch's spell!
There it is, there it is, the unholy smell!
Tell it to the Beadle and the police as well!
Tell 'em! Tell em!
Oh!!! Fiend!!!
City on fire!!!
City on fire...
Mischief...mischief...mischief...
Fiend...
Alms...alms...

TODD:
And though I'll think of you, I guess,
Until the day I die,
I think I miss you less and less
As every day goes by,
Johanna...

ANTHONY:
Johanna...

JOHANNA'S VOICE:
With you beside me on Sunday,
Married on Sunday...

TODD:
And you'd be beautiful and pale,
And look too much like her.
If only angels could prevail,
We'd be the way we were,
Johanna...

ANTHONY:
I feel you...
Johanna

JOHANNA'S VOICE:
Married on Sunday...
Married on Sunday...

TODD:
Wake up, Johanna!
Another bright red day!
We learn, Johanna,
To say
Goodbye

ANTHONY:
I'll steal you...
