Original Broadway production 1979
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street the Musical - Ladies In Their Sensitivities Lyrics

Come, walk home with me - I have news for you.
In order to shield her from the evils of this world,
I have decided to marry Johanna next Monday.

Ah, sir, happy news indeed.

Strange, when I offered myself to her,
She showed a certain reluctance.

Excuse me, my Lord,
May I request, my Lord,
Permission, my Lord, to speak?
Forgive me if I suggest, my Lord,
You're looking less than your best, my Lord,
There's powder upon your vest, my Lord,
And stubble upon your cheek.
And ladies, my Lord, are weak.

Ladies in their sensitivities, my Lord,
Have a fragile sensibility.
When a girl's emergent,
Probably it's urgent,
You defer to her gent-
Ility, my Lord.
Personal disorder cannot be ignored,
Given their genteel proclivities.
Meaning no offence, it
Happens they resents it,
Ladies in their sensit-
Ivities, my Lord.

Stubble, you say?
Perhaps at times I am a little overhasty with my morning ablutions...

Fret not though, my Lord,
I know a place, my Lord,
A barber, my Lord, of skill.
Thus armed with a shaven face, my Lord,
Some eau de cologne to brace my Lord
And musk to enhance the chase, my Lord,
You'll dazzle the girl until
She bows to your every will.

Perhaps you're right. Take me to him.

[Thanks to Sam Wilkes for lyrics]
