The Ballad of Sweeney Todd: "Lift Your Razor High, Sweeney!"

Original Broadway production 1979
Sweeney Todd the Musical - The Ballad of Sweeney Todd: "Lift Your Razor High, Sweeney!" Lyrics


TODD:
At last, my arm is complete again!

COMPANY:
Lift your razor high, Sweeney!
Hear it singing, "Yes!"
Sink it in the rosy skin
Of righteousness!

BEADLE:
His voice was soft, his manner mild.

FOUR WOMEN:
He seldom laughed but he often smiled.

MAN:
He'd seen how civilised men behave.
He never forgot and he never forgave.

COMPANY:
Not Sweeney,
Not Sweeney Todd,

TWO MEN:
The demon barber of Fleet Street.
