Crazy Women

The aunt and the help have gone crazy. When they start laughing, there's no stopping them. To our very own Mrs. Lovett, Norma Desmond, Mama Rose, Diana Goodman, here's your version of "Pretty Women" from Sondheim's "Sweeney Todd."

 Johnny Depp and Alan Rickman in that scene from that film.

Crazy women,
making dinner,
Crazy women
are a wonder.
Crazy women!

Sitting by the window or
standing by the chair,
something that they say or wear.

Crazy women,
so demented,
staring at you,
right beside you.
Breathing lightly,
crazy women,
crazy women!

Blowing unlit candles or
pulling out their hair.
Even when they sleep,
they still are there
right there.

Ah! Crazy women, 
wiping mirrors
in the kitchen,
How they get you reeling!

Proof of madness
while they're living,
crazy women!
Yes, crazy women!
Here's to crazy women!
