No Place Like London

Sweeney Todd

Letra de la canción

Performed by:

Anthony Hope (Jamie Campbell Bower)
Sweeney Todd (Johnny Depp)

Anthony Hope: I have sailed the world
Beheld its wonders
From the Dardanelles
To the mountains of Peru
But, there’s no place like London!

Sweeney Todd: No, there’s no place like London!

Anthony Hope: “Mr. Todd?”

Sweeney Todd: You are young
Life has been kind to you
You will learn

There’s a hole in the world like a great black pit
And the vermin of the world inhabit it
And its morals aren’t worth what a pig could spit
And it goes by the name of London

At the top of the hole sit the privileged few
Making mock of the vermin in the lower zoo
Turning beauty into filth and greed - I too
Have sailed the world and seen its wonders
For the cruelty of men is as wondrous as Peru
But there’s no place like London!

Anthony Hope: “Is everything alright, Mr. Todd?”

Sweeney Todd: “I beg your indulgence, Anthony. My mind is far from easy.
In these once-familiar streets, I feel shadows everywhere.”

There was a barber and his wife
And she was beautiful
A foolish barber and his wife
She was his reason and his life
And she was beautiful
And she was virtuous
And he was-- naive

There was another man who saw
That she was beautiful
A pious vulture of the law
Who with a gesture of his claw
Removed the barber from his plate
Then there was nothing but to wait
And she would fall
So soft
So young
So lost
And oh, so beautiful!

Anthony Hope: “And the lady, sir. Did she succumb?”

Sweeney Todd: Oh, that was many years ago
I doubt if anyone would know

“I’d like to thank you, Anthony. If you hadn’t spotted me, I would be
lost on the ocean still.”

Anthony Hope: “Will I see you again?”

Sweeney Todd: “You might find me, if you like, around Fleet Street, I wouldn’t wonder.”

Anthony Hope: “Until then, my friend.”

Sweeney Todd: There’s a hole in the world like a great black pit
And it’s filled with people who are filled with shit
And the vermin of the world inhabit it
