Seems a downright shame Shame? Seems an awful waste Such a nice plump frame What's his name has… had… has Nor he can't be traced Business needs a lift Debts to be erased Think of it as thrift As a gift If you get my drift Seems an awful waste I mean, with the price of meat What it is When you get it If you get it Ah! Good, you got it Take, for instance, Mrs. Mooney and her pie shop Business never better, using only pussycats and toast Now, a pussy's good for maybe six or seven at the most And I'm sure they can't compare as far as taste Mrs. Lovett What a charming notion Eminently practical Well, it does seem a waste And yet appropriate as always Mrs. Lovett How I've lived without you all these years I'll never know (Think about it) How delectable (Lots of other gentlemen'll soon be) Also undetectable (comin' for a shave Won't they?) How choice (Think of) How rare (All them pies!) For what's the sound of the world out there What, Mr. Todd What, Mr. Todd What is that sound Those crunching noises pervading the air Yes, Mr. Todd! Yes, Mr. Todd! Yes, all around It's man devouring man, my dear Then who are we to deny it in here? What is that? It's priest Have a little priest Is it really good? Sir, it's too good, at least! Then again, they don't commit sins of the flesh So it's pretty fresh Awful lot of fat Only where it sat Haven't you got poet, or something like that? No, y'see, the trouble with poet is 'Ow do you know it's deceased? Try the priest! Lawyer's rather nice If it's for a price Order something else, though, to follow Since no one should swallow it twice! Anything that's lean? Well, then, if you're British and loyal You might enjoy Royal Marine Anyway, it's clean Though of course, it tastes of wherever it's been! Is that squire On the fire? Mercy no, sir, look closer You'll notice it's grocer! Looks thicker More like vicar! No, it has to be grocer It's green! The history of the world, my love Save a lot of graves Do a lot of relatives favors! Is those below serving those up above! Ev'rybody shaves So there should be plenty of flavors! How gratifying for once to know That those above will serve those down below! What is that? It's fop Finest in the shop Or we have some shepherd's pie peppered With actual shepherd on top! And I've just begun Here's the politician, so oily It's served with a doily Have one! Put it on a bun. Well, you never know if it's going to run! Try the friar. Fried, it's drier! No, the clergy is really Too coarse and too mealy! Then actor It's compacter! Ah, but always arrives overdone! I'll come again when you have judge on the menu Have charity towards the world, my pet! Yes, yes, I know, my love! We'll take the customers that we can get! High-born and low, my love! We'll not discriminate great from small! No, we'll serve anyone Meaning anyone! We'll serve anyone And to anyone! At all!
