Johanna is the sixth song on the movie. It's sung by Anthony Hope, who has fallen in love with the song's title character, Johanna Barker.

Halfway through this song, Anthony is interrupted by the arrival of Judge Turpin, Johanna's guardian, who accuses Anthony of "gandering" at his ward and has Beadle Bamford throw him out and give him a whipping to remember. The other half of the song is sung as Anthony is leaving the scene.

In the stage musical, Anthony and Johanna actually see each other during the first half of the song, and during the intermission, the Judge confronts Anthony after making an advance to Johanna that scares her back into the mansion. In addition, the Beadle kills the bird that Anthony had bought for Johanna by snapping its neck before threatening Anthony with the same if he ever set foot in their territory again. During the second half of the song, Anthony tears apart the cage the bird was in, a symbolic gesture of his desire to free Johanna from Turpin.

In the stage musical there are three songs called "Johanna". The second one is sung by the Judge (and is not a reprise of Anthony's "Johanna"). And the third one called "Johanna Quartet" is sung by Anthony, Sweeney, Johanna and the Beggar Woman. In Movie "Johanna Quartet" not included Johanna and is called just "Johanna - reprise"

Lyrics Edit

ANTHONY:
I feel you
Johanna
I feel you

I was half-convinced I’d wakened
Satisfied enough to dream you
Happily, I was mistaken

Johanna
Anthony Before Singing 'Johanna'

I’ll steal you
Johanna
I’ll steal you

[Scene Break]

I'll steal you
Johanna
I'll steal you

Do they think that walls can hide you?
Even now I’m at your window
I am in the dark beside you
Buried sweetly in your yellow hair

I feel you
Johanna
And one day
I’ll steal you

’Till I’m with you then
I’m with you there
Sweetly buried in your yellow hair

[Instrumental To End]
