My Friends Lyrics

Original Broadway production 1979
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street the Musical - My Friends Lyrics


MRS. LOVETT:
My, them handles is chased silver, ain't they?

TODD:
Silver, yes.
These are my friends.
See how they glisten.
See this one shine,
How he smiles in the light.
My friend, my faithful friend.
Speak to me, friend.
Whisper, I'll listen.
I know, I know-
You've been locked out of sight all these years-
Like me, my friend.
Well, I've come home
To find you waiting.
Home,
And we're together,
And we'll do wonders,
Won't we?

TODD:                                         MRS. LOVETT:
You there, my friend                     I'm your friend too, Mr. Todd.
Come, let me hold you.                 If you only knew, Mr. Todd.
Now, with a sigh                          Ooh, Mr. Todd.
You grow warm                           You're warm
In my hand,                                 In my hand.
My friend,                                    You've come home.
My clever friend.                          Always had a fondness for you, I did.
Rest now, my friends.                   Never you fear, Mr. Todd,
Soon I'll unfold you.                      You can move in here, Mr. Todd.
Soon you'll know splendours
You never have dreamed              Splendours you never have dreamed
All your days,                              All your days
My lucky friends.                          Will be yours.
'Til now your shine                       I'm your friend, and you're mine!
Was merely silver.                       Don't they shine beautiful?
Friends,                                      Silver's good enough for me,
You shall drip rubies.                    Mr. T.
You'll soon drip precious
Rubies...
