Look Down, and see, the beggars at your feet
Look Down, and show, some mercy if you can.
Look Down, and see, the sweepings of the street
Look Down, Look Down, upon your fellow man.
How do you do my name's Gavroche, these are my people here's my patch.
Not much to look at nothing posh, nothing that you'd call up to scratch.
This is my school my high society here in the slums of St. Michelle,
we live on crumbs of humble piety, tough on the teeth but what the hell.
If you're poor, if you're free, follow me, FOLLOW ME!!!
Look Down, and show, some mercy if you can
Look Down, Look Down, upon you're fellow man.
Old Beggar Woman
What you think yer at?
Hanging round me pitch?
If you're new around here, girl
You've got a lot to learn
Listen you old bat
Crazy bloody witch
Least I give my customers
Some pleasure in return
Old Beggar Woman
I know what you give!
Give 'em all the pox!
Spread around your poison
Till they end up in a box
Leave the poor old cow,
Move it, Madeleine
She used to be no better
Till the clap got to her brain
When's it gonna end?
When we gonna live?
Something's gotta happen now or
Something's gonna give...
It'll come, it'll come, it'll come It'll come, it'll come, it'll come
Where the leaders of the land?
Where are the swells who run this show?
Only one man - and that's
Lamarque Speaks for these people here below
See our children fed
Help us in our shame
Something for a crust of bread
In Holy Jesus' name
In the Lord's Holy name.
Beggars In his name, in his name, in his name...
Lamarque is ill and fading fast!
Won't last the week out so they say
With all the anger in the land
How long before the judgement day?
Before we cut the fat ones down to size?
Before the barricades arise?
Look down, look down, and show some mercy if you can
Look down, look down, upon your fellow man!
