Sweeney Todd - Ah, Miss Lyrics

Original Broadway production 1979
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street the Musical - Ah, Miss Lyrics

I have sailed the world,
Beheld its wonders,
From the pearls of Spain
To the rubies of Tibet,
But not even in London
Have I seen such a wonder

Lady look at me look at me miss, oh
Look at me please oh
Favour me favour me with your glance.
Ah, miss,
What do you what do you see off
There in those trees oh
Won't you give won't you give me a chance?

Who would sail to Spain
For all it's wonders
When in Kearney's Lane
Lies the greatest wonder yet?

Ah, miss,
Look at you look at you pale and
Ivory-skinned oh
Look at you looking so sad so queer.
Not to retreat to the darkness
Back of your window
Not 'til you not 'til you look down here

ANTHONY:                                 JOHANNA:
Look at                                      Green finch and linnet bird,
Me!                                           Nightingale, blackbird,
Look at                                      Teach me how to sing.
Me!                                           If I cannot fly...
Look at me...                              Let me sing...

For a miserable woman...
Beg your pardon, it's you, sir...
Thank yer...thank yer kindly...

One moment, mother. Perhaps you know whose house this is?

There? That's the great Judge Turpin's house, that is.

And the young lady who resides there?

Oh, her! That's Johanna, his pretty little ward.
But don't you go trespassing there, young man. Not if you value your hide.
Tamper there and it's a good whipping for you - or any other youth with mischief on his mind.

Hey! Hoy! Sailor boy!
Want it snugly harboured?
Open me gate but dock it straight,
I see it lists to starboard.

Off with you! Be off!

[Thanks to Sam Wilkes for lyrics]
