LyricsEdit

SAILOR ONE

I smell women

Smell 'em in the air

Think I'll drop my anchor

In that harbor over there

SAILOR TWO

Lovely ladies

Smell 'em through the smoke

Seven days at sea

Can make you hungry for a poke

SAILOR THREE

Even stokers need a little stoke!

WOMEN

Lovely ladies

Waiting for a bite

Waiting for the customers

Who only come at night

Lovely ladies

Ready for the call

Standing up or lying down

Or any way at all

Bargain prices up against the wall

OLD WOMAN

Come here, my dear

Let's see this trinket you wear

This bagatelle...

FANTINE

Madame, I'll sell it to you...

OLD WOMAN

I'll give you four

FANTINE

That wouldn't pay for the chain!

OLD WOMAN

I'll give you five. You're far to eager to sell.

It's up to you.

FANTINE

It's all I have

OLD WOMAN

That's not my fault

FANTINE]

Please make it ten!

OLD WOMAN

No more than five

My dear, we all must stay alive!

WOMEN

Lovely ladies

Waiting in the dark

Ready for a thick one

Or a quick one in the park

WHORE ONE

Long time, short time

Any time, my dear

Cost a little extra if you want to take all year!

ALL

Quick and cheap is underneath the pier!

CRONE

What pretty hair! What pretty locks you got there

What luck you got. It's worth a centime, my dear

I'll take the lot

FANTINE

Don't touch me! Leave me alone!

CRONE

Let's make a price.

I'll give you all of ten francs,

Just think of that!

FANTINE

It pays a debt

CRONE

Just think of that

FANTINE

What can I do? It pays a debt.

Ten francs may save my poor Cosette!

SAILOR THREE

Lovely lady!

Fastest on the street

Wasn't there three minutes

She was back up on her feet

SAILOR ONE

Lovely lady!

What yer waiting for?

Doesn't take a lot of savvy

Just to be a whore

Come on, lady

What's a lady for?

PIMP

Give me the dirt, who's that bit over there?

WHORE ONE

A bit of skirt. She's the one sold her hair.

WHORE TWO

She's got a kid. Sends her all that she can.

PIMP

I might have known

There is always some man

Lovely lady, come along and join us!

Lovely lady!

WHORE ONE

Come on dearie, why all the fuss?

You're no grander than the rest of us

Life has dropped you at the bottom of the heap

Join your sisters

WHORE TWO

Make money in your sleep!

WHORE ONE

That's right dearie, let him have the lot

WHORE THREE

That's right dearie, show him what you've got!

WOMEN

Old men, young men, take 'em as they come

Harbor rats and alley cats and every kind of scum

Poor men, rich men, leaders of the land

See them with their trousers off they're never quite as grand

All it takes is money in your hand!

Lovely ladies

Going for a song

Got a lot of callers

But they never stay for long

FANTINE

Come on, Captain,

you can wear your shoes

Don't it make a change

To have a girl who can't refuse

Easy money

Lying on a bed

Just as well they never see

The hate that's in your head

Don't they know they're making love

To one already dead!
