Sweeney Todd – By The Sea Lyrics

LOVETT: (spoken) I’ve always had this dream…
Ever since I was a skinny little slip of a thing and my
rich Aunt
Nettie used to take me down to the seaside August Bank
Holiday…
The pier… Makin’ little castles in the sand…
Ooh, I can still feel me toes wigglin’ around in the
briney! Todd, that’s the life I covet,
By the sea, Mr. Don’tcha love the weather? TODD: Anything you say…
LOVETT:
With the sea at our gate, we’ll have kippered herring
Wot have swum to us straight from the Straits of
Bering! Where I’d really like to go,
In a year or so? We’ll grow old together! Todd! It’ll be so quiet,
That who’ll come by it,
Except a seagull
Hoo, hoo! You in a nice, rich navy, and me… stripes, perhaps. Wouldn’t that be smashing? LOVETT: Do you really want to know? (spoken)
Oh, I can see us now, in our bathing dresses! Don’t you want to know? You and me, Mr. Todd, ooh, I know you’d love it! By the beautiful sea! But a seaside wedding could be devised,
Me rumpled bedding legitimized! (kiss)
I could (kiss)
Eat you up, I really could! Todd? By the sea! By the sea,
With the fishies splashing! (kiss)
What I dream (kiss)
If the business stays as good? By the seaside,
Hoo, hoo! By the sea! T, we could be alone
In a house wot we’d almost own,
Down by the sea! TODD: (spoken) Yes, yes, of course. TODD: Anything you say, anything you say…
LOVETT:
I can hear us wakin,’
The breakers breakin,’
The seagulls squawkin,’
‘Hoo, hoo!’
I do me bakin,’
Then I go walkin’
With you-hoo! Ev’ry night, in the kip, when we’re through our
kippers,
I’ll be there slippin’ off your slippers! Me eyelids’ll flutter,
I’ll turn into butter,
The moment I mutter I do-hoo! By the sea,
Bring along your chopper! LOVETT:
(she kisses Todd)
Ooh, Mr. SWEENEY TODDBy The Sea Lyrics
MRS. By the sea, in our nest, we could share our kippers
With the odd payin’ guest from the weekend trippers,
Have a nice sunny suite for the guest to rest in,
Now and then, you could do the guest in! You know what I’d like to do, Mr. By the sea, Mr. I’ll warm me bones on the esplanade,
Have tea and scones with me gay young blade,
Then I’ll knit a sweater
While you write a letter
Unless we’ve got better to do-hoo! TODD: Anything you say…
LOVETT:
Think how snug it’ll be underneath our flannel
When it’s just you and me and the English Channel! By the sea! Wouldn’t that be smashing? By the sea,
Married nice and proper! We shouldn’t try it,
Though, ’til it’s legal for two-hoo! In our cozy retreat kept all neat and tidy,
We’ll have chums over ev’ry Friday! By the beautiful sea! TODD: (spoken) Yes, I do, I do. To the seaside,
Hoo, hoo! Yoo-hoo! (kiss)
I’m so happy!
