Song lyrics:

[TOBIAS]
Ladies and gentlemen
May I have your attention, perlease?
Are your nostrils aquiver and tingling as well
At that delicate, luscious ambrosial smell?
Yes they are, I can tell
Well, ladies and gentlemen
Th at aroma enriching the breeze
Is like nothing compared to its succulent source
As the gourmets among you will tell you, of course
Ladies and gentlemen
You cant imagine the rapture in store-
Just inside of this door!
Th ere youll sample
Mrs. Lovetts meat pies
Savory and sweet pies
As youll see
You who eat pies
Mrs. Lovetts meat pies
Conjure up the treat pies
Used to be!

[MRS. LOVETT]
Toby!

[TOBIAS]
Coming!

[MRS. LOVETT]
Ale there!

[TOBIAS]
Right, mum!

[MRS. LOVETT]
Quick, now!
Nice to see you, dearie
How have you been keeping?
Cor, me bones is weary!



Toby!
One for the gentleman...
Hear the birdies cheeping—
Helps to keep it cheery...
Toby!
Throw the old woman out!
Whats my secret?
Frankly, dear—forgive my candor—
Family secret
All to do with herbs
Things like being
Careful with your coriander
Thats what makes the gravy grander!

[BOTH]
Eat them slow and
Feel the crust, how thin she rolled it!
Eat them slow, cos
Every ones a prize!
Eat them slow, cos
Th ats the lot and now weve sold it
Come again tomorrow—

[MRS. LOVETT & TOBIAS]
Hold it!
Bless my eyes—
Fresh supplies!
How about it, dearie? Is that a pie
Be here in a twinkling! Fit for a king
Just confirms my theory. A wondrous sweet
Toby—! And most delectable
God watches over us. Thing?
Didnt have an inkling... You see, maam, why
Positively eerie... There is no meat pie—

[MRS. LOVETT]
Toby!
Throw the old woman out!
