Poor Thing de Sweeney Todd

Letra da musica Poor Thing de Sweeney Todd

Poor Thing
Poor Thing

Sweeney Todd: "You got a room over the shop, haven't you?
If times are so hard, why don't you rent it out?"

Mrs. Lovett: "People think it's haunted."

Sweeney Todd: "Haunted?"

Mrs. Lovett: "Yeah.
And who's to say they're wrong?
You see, years ago something happened up here.
Something not very nice."

There was a barber and his wife
And he was beautiful
A proper artist with a knife
But they transported him for life
And he was beautiful

"Barker, his name was. Benjamin Barker."

Sweeney Todd: "What was his crime?"

Mrs. Lovett: "Foolishness."

He had this wife, you see
Pretty little thing
Silly little nit
Had her chance for the moon on a string
Poor thing
Poor thing

There was this judge, you see
Wanted her like mad
Every day he sent her a flower
But did she come down from her tower
Sat up there and sulked by the hour
Poor fool
Ah, but there was worse yet to come, poor thing


Well, Beadle calls on her all polite
Poor thing
Poor thing
The judge, he tells her is all contrite
He blames himself for her dreadful plight
She must come straight to his house tonight
Poor thing
Poor thing

Of course when she goes there - poor thing, poor thing,
They're havin' this ball all in masks
There's no one she knows there - poor dear, poor thing
She wanders, tormented and drinks - poor thing
The judge has repented, she thinks - poor thing
'Oh, where is Judge Turpin?' she asks
He was there alright
Only not so contrite

She wasn't no match for such craft, you see
And everyone thought it so droll
They figured she had to be daft, you see
So all of them stood there and laughed, you see
Poor soul
Poor thing


Sweeney Todd: "NO!"
Would no one have mercy on her?"

Mrs. Lovett: "So it is you. Benjamin Barker."

Sweeney Todd: "No! Not Barker. That man is dead.
It's Todd now - Sweeney Todd.
And he will have his revenge."
