"Green Finch and Linnet Bird" is the sixth song from the Steven Sondheim musical Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street
. Greenfinch is actually one word, and a linnet bird is simply a linnet (as in "The Cock Linnet Song"), but Sondheim can be forgiven this on account of the song's content. Arguably the lightest song in this dark work, it is sung by Johanna, Todd's long lost daughter after his return to London from a 15 year enforced exile.
