Original Broadway production 1979
Sweeney Todd the Musical - The Ballad of Sweeney Todd: "Lift Your Razor High, Sweeney!" Lyrics
At last, my arm is complete again!
Lift your razor high, Sweeney!
Hear it singing, "Yes!"
Sink it in the rosy skin
His voice was soft, his manner mild.
He seldom laughed but he often smiled.
He'd seen how civilised men behave.
He never forgot and he never forgave.
Not Sweeney Todd,
The demon barber of Fleet Street.
