"Not While I'm Around [From Sweeney Todd]" as written by and Stephen Sondheim....
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

Not to worry, not to worry
I may not be smart, but I'm not dumb.
I can do it. Put me to it. Show me somethin', I can overcome.
Not to worry, ma'am.

Being close and being clever
Ain't like being true
I don't need to,
I would hide a thing from you,
Like some

Nothin's gonna harm you. Not while I'm around.
Nothing's gonna harm you, darling
Not while I'm around.

Demons'll charm you with a smile, for a while,
But in time
Nothing can harm you
Not while I'm around
