Not While I’m Around (1978)
(wm) Stephen Sondheim. (I) Musical: Sweeney Todd by Angela Lansbury and Ken Jennings. (R) Barbra Streisand.
Nothing’s gonna harm you, not while I’m around.
Nothing’s gonna harm you, no sir, not while I’m around.
Demons are prowling everywhere, nowadays,
I’ll send ’em howling, I don’t care, I got ways.

No one’s gonna hurt you, no one’s gonna dare.
Others can desert you, not to worry, whistle, I’ll be there.
Demons’ll charm you with a smile, for a while,
But in time... Nothing can harm you... Not while I’m around...

Being close and being clever ain’t like being true
I don’t need to, I would never hide a thing from you, like some...

No one’s gonna hurt you, no one’s gonna dare
Others can desert you, not to worry, whistle, I’ll be there!
Demons’ll charm you with a smile, for a while
But in time... Nothing can harm you... Not while I’m around...
