Sweeney Todd – By The Sea Lyrics

(kiss)
I’m so happy! 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! By the beautiful sea! By the sea, Mr. By the sea! Don’tcha love the weather? Ev’ry night, in the kip, when we’re through our
kippers,
I’ll be there slippin’ off your slippers! SWEENEY TODDBy The Sea Lyrics
MRS. 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! Todd, that’s the life I covet,
By the sea, Mr. TODD: (spoken) Yes, yes, of course. To the seaside,
Hoo, hoo! By the sea,
With the fishies splashing! Yoo-hoo! By the seaside,
Hoo, hoo! Don’t you want to know? By the sea,
Married nice and proper! 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! We’ll grow old together! (spoken)
Oh, I can see us now, in our bathing dresses! Wouldn’t that be smashing? Wouldn’t that be smashing? In our cozy retreat kept all neat and tidy,
We’ll have chums over ev’ry Friday! Where I’d really like to go,
In a year or so? LOVETT:
(she kisses Todd)
Ooh, Mr. You in a nice, rich navy, and me… stripes, perhaps. LOVETT: Do you really want to know? (kiss)
I could (kiss)
Eat you up, I really could! 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! TODD: (spoken) Yes, I do, I do. Todd? We shouldn’t try it,
Though, ’til it’s legal for two-hoo! By the sea! Todd, ooh, I know you’d love it! It’ll be so quiet,
That who’ll come by it,
Except a seagull
Hoo, hoo! (kiss)
What I dream (kiss)
If the business stays as good? 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, 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! By the sea,
Bring along your chopper! Me eyelids’ll flutter,
I’ll turn into butter,
The moment I mutter I do-hoo! But a seaside wedding could be devised,
Me rumpled bedding legitimized! You know what I’d like to do, Mr. By the beautiful sea! You and me, Mr. Todd! T, we could be alone
In a house wot we’d almost own,
Down by the sea! By the sea!
