What to do? What to say?

Shall you carry our treasure away?

What a gem! What a pearl!

Beyond rubies is our little girl!

How can we speak of debt?

Let's not haggle for darling Cosette!

Dear Fantine, gone to rest...

Have we done for her child what is best?

Shared our bread. Shared each bone.

Treated her like she's one of our own!

Like our own, Monsieur!


Your feelings do you credit, sir

And I will ease the parting blow

He pays them.

Let us not talk of bargains or bones or greed

Now, may I say, we are agreed?


That would quite fit the bill

If she hadn't so often been ill

Little dear, cost us dear

Medicines are expensive, M'sieur

Not that we begrudged a sou

It's no more than we Christians must do!


One thing more, one small doubt

There are treacherous people about

No offense. Please reflect.

Your intentions may not be correct?


No more words. Here's your price.

Fifteen hundred for your sacrifice.

Come, Cosette, say goodbye

Let us seek out some friendlier sky.

Thank you both for Cosette

It won't take you too long to forget.
