Original Broadway production 1979
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street the Musical - Kiss Me (Part 1) Lyrics


JOHANNA:
He means to marry me Monday,
What shall I do? I'd rather die.

ANTHONY:
I have a plan-

JOHANNA:
I'll swallow poison on Sunday,
That's what I'll do, I'll get some lye.

ANTHONY:
I have a plan-

JOHANNA:
Oh dear, was that a noise?

ANTHONY:
A plan-

JOHANNA:
I think I heard a noise.

ANTHONY:
A plan!

JOHANNA:
It couldn't be,
He's in court,
He's in court today,
Still that was a noise,
Wasn't that a noise?
You must have heard that...

ANTHONY:
Kiss me!

JOHANNA:
Oh, sir

ANTHONY:
Ah, miss

JOHANNA:
Oh, sir...
If he should marry me Monday,
What will I do? I'll die of grief.

ANTHONY:
We fly tonight-

JOHANNA:
'Tis Friday, virtually Sunday,
What can we do with time so brief?

ANTHONY:
We fly tonight-

JOHANNA:
Behind the curtain - quick!

ANTHONY:
Tonight-

JOHANNA:
I think I heard a click!

ANTHONY:
Tonight!

JOHANNA:                                   ANTHONY:
It was a gate!
It's the gate!
We don't have a gate,                   It's not a gate,
Still there was a - wait!                 There's no gate,
There's another click!                    You don't have a gate.
You must have heard that...           If you'd only listen, miss, and-

ANTHONY:
Kiss me!

JOHANNA:
Tonight?

ANTHONY:
Kiss me.

JOHANNA:
You mean tonight?

ANTHONY:
The plan is made.

JOHANNA:
Oh, sir!

ANTHONY:
So kiss me.

JOHANNA:
I feel a fright.

ANTHONY:
Be not afraid.

JOHANNA:                                    ANTHONY:
Sir, I did                                       Tonight, I'll
Love you even as I                         Steal
Saw you, even as it                       You,
Did not matter that I                      Johanna,
Did not know your name.                I'll steal you...

ANTHONY:
It's me you'll marry on Monday,
That's what you'll do!

JOHANNA:
And gladly sir.

ANTHONY:
St. Dunstan's, noon.

JOHANNA:                                               ANTHONY:
I knew I'd be with you one day,
Even not knowing who you were.             Ah, miss,
I feared you'd never come,                      Marry me, marry me, miss,
That you'd been called away.                  Oh, marry me Monday!
That you'd been killed,                            Favour me, favour me
Had the plague,                                     With your hand.
Were in debtor's jail,                              Promise,
Trampled by a horse,                             Marry me, marry me,
Gone to sea again,                                 Please,
Arrested by the-                                     Oh, marry me Monday

JOHANNA:
Kiss me!

ANTHONY:
Of course.

JOHANNA:
Kiss me

ANTHONY:
You're sure?

JOHANNA:
Kiss me!

ANTHONY:
I shall!

JOHANNA:
Kiss me! Oh, sir
