Sweeney Todd - The Worst Pies In London (2007) Lyrics

Performed by:

Mrs. Lovett (Helena Bonham Carter)




Mrs. Lovett: Wait!
WhatÂ’s your rush?
WhatÂ’s your hurry?

You gave me such a..
Fright I thought you was a ghost

Half a minute? CanÂ’t you sit?
lets Seat you down, SIT!
All I meant is that I Â’avenÂ’t seen a customer foÂ’ weeks

Did you come in for a pie, sir?
Do forgive me if me Â’eadÂ’s a liÂ’Â’le vague

What was that?

Bet you think we had the plague
From the way that people
Keep avoidinÂ’

No, you donÂ’t

Heaven knows I try, sir
But thereÂ’s no one comes in even to inhale
Right you are, so would you like a drop of ale?

Mind you, I can hardly blame them
These are probably the worst pies in London
I know why nobody cares to take them
I should know
I make Â’em
But good? no!

The worst pies in London

Even that's polite
The worst pies in London
If you doubt it take a bite...

Is that just disgusting?
YouÂ’ll have to concede it
ItÂ’s nothing but crusting
Here drink this, youÂ’ll need it
The worst pies in London

And no wonder with the price of meat
What it is
When you get it
Never

Thought IÂ’d live to see the day

Many think it was a treat
Finding poor
Animals
What are dying in the street

Mrs. Mooney has a pie shop
Does her business but I notice somethinÂ’ weird
Lately all her neighbourÂ’s cats have disappeared

Â’Ave to hand it to her
What I calls
Enterprise
PoppinÂ’ pussies into pies

WouldnÂ’t do in my shop
Just the thought of itÂ’s enough to make you sick
And IÂ’m tellinÂ’ you them pussycats is quick

No denying times is hard, sir
Even harder than the worst pies in London
Only lard and nothinÂ’ more

Is that just revolting?
All greasy?
And gritty?
It looks like
ItÂ’s moulting
And tastes like...

Well pity
A woman alone
With limited wind
And the worst pies in London!

Ah, sir
Times is hard
Times is hard!
