God, That's Good

Album: Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street (1979)

Songfacts®:

  • "God, That's Good" is another song from the Steven Sondheim musical Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street. It is performed as a duet by Tobias Rag and Mrs Lovett - Ed Sanders and Helena Bonham Carter in the 2007/08 film version. The song is short and contrapuntal after a fashion. What's good is the lady's meat pies. Though of course, if the clientele knew what they were eating, they wouldn't think they were quite so good! >>
