A Little Priest

Album: Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street (1979)
  • "A Little Priest" is a truly bizarre duet. Written by Stephen Sondheim for his musical Sweeney Todd, it sees Todd and Mrs Lovett discussing the ingredients of her pies: a little priest, a little financier, a little grocer, and so on. As might be expected, the song is delivered with a certain amount of black humour. >>
