Pirelli's Entrance Lyrics

Original Broadway production 1979
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street the Musical - Pirelli's Entrance Lyrics


PIRELLI:
I am Adolfo Pirelli,
Da king of da barbers, da barber of kings,
E buon giorno, good day,
I blow you a kiss!
And I, da so-famous Pirelli,
I wish-a to know-a
Who has-a da nerve-a to say
My elixir is piss!
Who says this?

TODD:
I do. I am Mr. Sweeney Todd. I have opened this bottle of Pirelli's Elixir
and I say to you it is nothing but an arrant fraud and furthermore, signor...
I have serviced no kings, yet I wager that I can shave a cheek
And pull a tooth with ten times more dexterity than any street mountebank!

PIRELLI:
You hear zis foolish man? Watch and see how he will regret his folly.
