By The Sea

“By the sea, Mr. Todd, that’s the life I’ll covet,
By the sea, Mr. Todd, ooh, I know you’d love it!
You and me, Mr. T, we could be alone
In a house that we’d almost own,
Down by the sea!

By the sea!
Don’tcha love the weather?
By the sea!
We’ll grow old together!
By the seaside,
Whoa ..
By the beautiful sea!”

~ Mrs. Lovett to Benjamin Barker,
“By The Sea,” Sweeney Todd (Stephen Sondheim)

 

“Didn’t look back when she was going down the strand. Wouldn’t give that satisfaction. Those girls, those girls, those lovely seaside girls. Fine eyes she had, clear. It’s the white of the eye brings that out not so much the pupil. Did she know what I? Course. Like a cat sitting beyond a dog’s jump.”

~ “Nausicaa” Chapter 13, Ulysses (James Joyce)
