Pretty Women is the song that was sung by Sweeney Todd to Judge Turpin in order to lull him into a false sense of security, leaving the Judge unaware of the demon barber's motive -- deadly revenge. But before Sweeney can kill him, Anthony busts into the shop to inform Todd that he's found Johanna and that she's agreed to their plan to get out of London.

Lyrics: Edit

TODD:
“And what may I do for you today, sir?
A stylish trimming of the hair?
A soothing skin massage?
Sit, sir. Sit.”

JUDGE TURPIN:
You see, sir, a man infatuate with love
Her ardent and eager slave
So fetch the pomade and pumice stone
And lend me a more seductive tone
A sprinkling perhaps of French cologne
But first, sir, I think...
A shave.

TODD:
The closest I ever gave

[Sweeney Todd whistles]
Pretty Women

JUDGE TURPIN:
“You’re in a merry mood today, Mr. Todd.”

TODD:
‘Tis your delight, sir, catching fire
From one man to the next

JUDGE TURPIN:
‘Tis true, sir, love can still inspire
The blood to pound, the heart leap higher
What more--

TODD:
What more--

BOTH:
Can man require

JUDGE TURPIN:
Than love, sir?

TODD:
More than love, sir

JUDGE TURPIN:
What, sir?

TODD:
Women

JUDGE TURPIN:
Ah, yes - women

TODD:
Pretty women

[Judge Turpin hums under his breath while Sweeney whistles, until he falls asleep. Sweeney then gets out his razor, deadly intent in mind]

TODD:
Now then, my friend...
Now to your purpose...
Patience, enjoy it...
Revenge can’t be taken in haste

[The Judge wakes up just as Sweeney is about to slash his throat]

JUDGE TURPIN:
Make haste, and if we wed, you’ll be commended, sir

TODD:
My lord...
And who, may it be said, is your intended, sir

JUDGE TURPIN:
My ward

“And pretty as a rosebud.”

TODD: “Pretty as her mother?”

JUDGE TURPIN: “What? What was that?”

TODD: “Nothing, sir. Nothing. May we proceed?”

[Sweeney makes as if to slash his throat again, but then begins shaving him.]

TODD:
Pretty women
Fascinating
Sipping coffee
Dancing
Pretty women
Are a wonder
Pretty women
Sitting in the window
Or - standing on the stair
Something in them cheers the air
Pretty women

JUDGE TURPIN:
Silhouetted

TODD:
Stay within you

JUDGE TURPIN:
Glancing

TODD:
Stay forever

JUDGE TURPIN:
Breathing lightly

TODD:
Pretty women

BOTH:
Pretty women

TODD:
Blowing out their…

JUDGE TURPIN:
Blowing out their

BOTH:
Candles

TODD:
Or - combing out their…

JUDGE TURPIN:
Combing out their

BOTH:
Hair

JUDGE TURPIN:
Then they leave--

TODD:
Even when they leave…

[Simultaneously:]

JUDGE TURPIN:
Even when they leave you and vanish
They somehow can still remain there with you
There with you

TODD:
They still are there
They’re there

BOTH:
Ah, pretty women

TODD:
At their mirrors

JUDGE TURPIN:
In their gardens

TODD:
Letter writing

JUDGE TURPIN:
Flower picking

TODD:
Weather watching

BOTH:
How they make a man sing
Proof of heaven
As you’re living
Pretty women, sir!
Pretty women, yes!
Pretty women, sir!

TODD:
Pretty women
All the women
Pretty women!
