Helena Bonham Carter & Johnny Depp - A little priest
That's all very well But what are we going to do about him? Later on, when it's dark We'll take him to some secret place And bury him O yeah, of course, we could do that Does suprise he’s not got any relatives Going to come poking around looking for him Seems a downright shame Shame? Seems an awful waste Such a nice, plump frame What's his name has Had Has! Nor it can't be traced Bus'ness needs a lift Debts to be erased Think of it as thrift As a gift If you get my drift! Seems an awful waste I mean, with the price of meat What it is When you get it If you get it HAH! Good, you got it! Take, for instance Mrs. Mooney and her pie shop! Business never better Using only pussycats and toast! Now, a pussy's good for maybe six or seven At the most! And I'm sure they can't compare As far as taste! Mrs. Lovett, what a charming notion (Well, it does seem a waste) Eminently practical And yet appropriate as always! Mrs. Lovett, how I've lived Without you all these years, I'll never know! How delectable! (think about it) Also undetectable! (Lot’s of other gentlemen will soon Be coming for a shave) How choice! (won’t they? Think of all them) How rare!

It's priest. Have a little priest Is it really good? Sir, it's too good, at least! Then again, they don't commit sins of the flesh So it's pretty fresh Awful lot of fat Only where it sat Haven't you got poet, or something like that? No, you see, the trouble with poet is How do you know it's deceased? Try the priest! Lawyer's rather nice If it's for a price Order something else, though, to follow Since no one should swallow it twice! Anything that's lean! Well, then, if you're British and loyal You might enjoy Royal Marine! Anyway, it's clean Though of course It tastes of wherever it's been! Is that squire On the fire? Mercy no, sir, look closer You'll notice it's grocer! Looks thicker More like vicar! No, it has to be grocer It's green! The history of the world, my love Save a lot of graves Do a lot of relatives favors! Is those below serving those up above! Ev'rybody shaves So there should be plenty of flavours!
