    This is a song from the musical Sweeney Todd. In this song, Todd has come into Mrs. Lovett's pie shop, where is old home was. Lovett sits Todd down (rather forcefully may I add) and serves him up a pie. She then proceeds to tell Todd how awful her pies are (She should know, she makes them) and dares Todd to take a bite. When he spits it out, she goes on a rant about a neighboring pie shop owned by Mrs. Mooney, who bakes her neighbors cat's into her pies. She claims she doesn't do it, although it's clear she has tried! She then proceeds to again, complain about how horrible her pies are. Times are hard for a woman alone, she says, very hard!

    The meaning of the song is telling about Mrs.Lovett's worst meat pies in London and talking about something else like her neighbor, Mrs.Mooney. She is about to tell her how worst her pies are. And telling that she knows why nobody cares to take them, she should know. She was about to tell how worst her pies are. And she was finding poor animals what are dying in the street and cook those animals. And she tells that she haven't seen a costumer for weeks or months.
