Sweeney Todd - Green Finch and Linnet Bird - Full Song

File:Sweeney Todd- Green Finch and Linnet Bird **LYRICS ON SCREEN**
Green Finch and Linnet Bird is a song from "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street." It is sung by Johanna as she longs to be free from Judge Turpin's home and see the world like the birds in her cages. Anthony sees her and falls in love with her and she the same, however Judge Turpin is also in love with Johanna because she reminds him of the woman he stole from Sweeney: Sweeney's wife, Lucy and Johanna's mother.

LyricsEdit

Johanna: Green finch and linnet bird, nightingale, blackbird

How is it you sing?

How can you jubilate, singing in cages

Never taking wing?

Outside, the sky waits, beckoning, beckoning

Just beyond the bars

How can you remain, staring at the rain

Maddened by the stars?

How is it you sing anything?

How is it you sing?

My cage has many rooms, damask and dark

Nothing there sings, not even my lark

Larks never will, you know, when they're captive

Teach me to be more adaptive, ah

Green finch, and linnet bird, nightingale, blackbird

Teach me how to sing

If I cannot fly

Let me sing
