Suppertime is a song from Little Shop Of Horrors in which Mr. Mushnik tries to find Seymour guilty of killing Orin. During the song, Audrey II sings to Seymour, although these are actually the thoughts in Seymour's mind, telling him what must be done. In the end, the only way to resolve the problem is to trick Mr. Mushnik into getting inside the plant, or in the 1986 Movie's case, backing him into it.

Lyrics

(1986 Movie)

Audrey II Mr. Mushnik Seymour Crystal, Chiffon, and Ronette
He's got your number now
(Spoken) I saw everything!
He knows just what you've done
Everything you did to her boyfriend!
You've got no place to hide
I saw you chopping!
You've got nowhere to run
(Spoken) It's true!
I chopped him up!
But I didn't kill him!
He knows your life of crime!
Tell it to the police!
I think it's suppertime!
Come on, Come on,
Think about all those offers!
Come on, Come on,
Your future with Audrey!
Come on, Come on
Ain't no time to turn squeamish!
C-C-C-C'mon!
I swear on all my spores!
When he's gone, the world will be yours! (Yours!)
Come on, Come on,
Come on, Come on,
Come on, Come on,
It's Suppertime
It's Suppertime
You know, Krelborn, Come on, Come on,
It kills me doing this Come on, Come on,
but considering you're almost like a son to me, Come on, Come on,
I'm thinking, maybe we don't have to go to the police Come on, Come on
We don't? Come on, Come on
I'm thinking, what if I kept my mouth shut It's Suppertime
and gave you a one way ticket out of town? Suppertime
You'd do that, sir? Suppertime
You could lay low for a while, say Come on, Come on
Thirty, Forty years Come on, Come on
Meanwhile, I would keep the Plant Come on, Come on
The plant? Come on, Come on
Of course, you'd have to teach me how to take care of it, Come on, Come on,
While you're away It's Suppertime
Give me, your secret gardening tips Suppertime
But then, if you'd rather hang Come on, Come on
Come on, Come on
Come on, Come on
Come on, Come on
What do I have to do? It's Suppertime
Just feed it. It's Suppertime
Just feed it what? Suppertime
Come on, Come on
Minerals Come on, Come on
Yes? Come on, Come on
On Thursdays, you should give it water. Come on, Come on
Oh, yes Come on, Come on
It's Suppertime
But whatever you do It's Suppertime
Yes?
Whatever you do It's Suppertime
Ye-
(Sees the plant is open) What the hell is th-
Sir?
Suppertime!

(2003 Broadway Revival Version)

Audrey II Mr. Mushnik Seymour Crystal, Chiffon, and Ronette
(Spoken) If you want something removed in a hurry,
its best not to dispose of it on Skid Row!
(Spoken) What're you talking about?
This! A Dentist's uniform!
He's got your number now
I saw it last week, and didn't think twice
He knows just what you've done
And the little red dots seemed innocent enough
You've got no place to hide
But now I catch you kissing the Dentist's girlfriend?
You've got nowhere to run
And it begins to look like a motive!
He knows your life of crime!
Once he's out of the way, you move in right?
I think it's Suppertime!
I'm innocent! I'm innocent!
Then come with me to the police and tell them that!
He's got his facts all straight
Just so my conscience will rest easy
You know he's on your trail
If you don't, I'll have to go tell them myself.
He's gonna turn you in!
Now will you come?
They're gonna put you in jail!
Okay
He's U.S.D.A. prime, for my Suppertime
I'll go lock up, we'll head over
Come On, Come on,
Think about all those offers
Come on, Come on,
Your future with Audrey!
Come on, Come on,
Ain't no time to turn squeamish
Come on, Come on,
I swear on all my spores
When he's gone, the world will be yours!
Okay Seymour, let's go
Uh, don't you want to collect the days receipts
So you can deposit them in the morning?
You put them in the safe, didn't you?
Uh, no Come on, Come on
Why not?
I forgot the combination
It's thousands of dollars! Where is it? Come on, Come on
In the plant.
In the plant?
I thought it was the safest place Come on, Come on
No thief would look in there, right? It's Suppertime
The money's inside the plant?
So how am I supposed to get it? Aw, Suppertime
Just Knock.
Knock? Suppertime
(Knocks on the plant, which opens, and he steps inside, and the plant begins to close on him)
Seymour?
Seymour!
Seymour!! AHHHHHH!
(Chomps)
AHHHH!
(Chomps)
AHHHH!
(Chomps)
AHHHH!
