Wait is the ninth song of the movie. It's sung by Mrs. Lovett to Sweeney Todd, who is anxious to get Judge Turpin and the Beadle into his shop so that he can take revenge. Mrs. Lovett would rather that Sweeney not obsess so much about vengeance and coaches him on patience.
MRS. LOVETT: Easy now, Hush, love, hush, Don't distress yourself, What's your rush? Keep your thoughts Nice and lush, Wait. Hush, love, hush, Think it through. Once it bubbles, then What's to do? Watch it close. Let it brew. Wait. I've been thinkin' flowers, Maybe daisies, To brighten up the room! Don't you think some flowers, Pretty daisies, Might relieve the gloom? Ah, wait, Love, wait. TODD: "And the judge? When will I get to him?" LOVETT: "Can't you think of nothin' else? Always broodin' away on your wrongs what happened -heaven knows- how many years ago!" Slow, love, slow. Time's so fast. Now goes quickly, see Now it's past! Soon will come, Soon will last. Wait. Don't you know, Silly man? Half the fun is to Plan the plan! All good things Come to those who can Wait. Gillyflowers, maybe, 'Stead of daisies... I dunno though... What do you think?
