The Ballad of Sweeney Todd: "His Hands Were Quick, His Fingers Strong" Lyrics


THREE TENORS:
His hand were quick, his fingers strong.
It stung a little but not for long.
And those who thought him a simple clod
Were soon reconsidering under the sod,
Consigned therewith a friendly prod
From Sweeney Todd,
The demon barber of Fleet Street.

See your razor gleam, Sweeney,
Feel how well it fits
As it floats across the throats
Of hypocrites...

[Thanks to Sam Wilkes for lyrics]
