No Place Like London
Jamie Campbell Bower Johnny Depp Lyrics


I have sailed the world Beheld its wonders
From the Dardanelles
To the mountains of Peru But, there's no place like London!

No, there's no place like London!

Mr. Todd?

You are young
Life has been kind to you You will learn
There's a hole in the world like a great black pit
And the vermin of the world inhabit it
And its morals aren't worth what a pig could spit
And it goes by the name of London
At the top of the hole sit the privileged few
Making mock of the vermin in the lower zoo
Turning beauty into filth and greed - I too
Have sailed the world and seen its wonders
For the cruelty of men is as wondrous as Peru
But there's no place like London!

"Is everything alright, Mr. Todd?"
"I beg your indulgence, Anthony.
My mind is far from easy.
In these once-familiar streets, I feel shadows everywhere."
There was a barber and his wife
And she was beautiful
A foolish barber and his wife
She was his reason and his life
And she was beautiful
And she was virtuous
And he was... naive
There was another man who saw
That she was beautiful
A pious vulture of the law
Who with a gesture of his claw
Removed the barber from his plate
Then there was nothing but to wait
And she would fall
So soft
So young
So lost
And oh, so beautiful!

And the lady, sir. Did she succumb?"
Oh, that was many years ago
I doubt if anyone would know
"I'd like to thank you, Anthony. If you hadn't spotted me, I would be lost on the ocean still."
"Will I see you again?"
"You might find me, if you like, around Fleet Street, I wouldn't wonder."
Anthony Hope: "Until then, my friend."

There's a hole in the world like a great black pit
And it's filled with people who are filled with shit
And the vermin of the world inhabit it

You are young
Life has been kind to you
You will learn,

Gives me chills.

I too , Have sailed the world and seen its wonders

For the cruelty of men is as wondrous as Peru
But there's no place like London!

Great voices and i strongly believe that Johnny Depp should make another dark-bloody-horror musical! These movies are totally his thing...!

@Owen Cross Well yes, besides those movies from artistic point of view, like the one you mentioned, are the only where he can really unfold his unique artistic talent.
