The Ballad of Sweeney Todd: "Sweeney Pondered and Sweeney Planned" Lyrics


MEMBERS OF THE COMPANY:
Sweeney pondered and Sweeney planned,
Like a perfect machine he planned,
Barbing the hook, baiting the trap,
Setting it out for the Beadle to snap.

Slyly courted him, Sweeney did,
Set a sort of a scene, he did.
Laying the trail, showing the traces,
Letting it lead to higher places...

Sweeney pondered and Sweeney planned,
Like a perfect machine he planned,
Slyly courted him, Sweeney did,
Laying the trail, showing the traces,
Letting it lead to higher places
He did, did Sweeney -
