LyricsEdit

PRISONERS

Look down, look down

Don't look 'em in the eye

Look down, look down,

You're here until you die

CONVICT ONE

The sun is strong

It's hot as hell below

PRISONERS

Look down, look down,

There's twenty years to go

CONVICT TWO

I've done no wrong!

Sweet Jesus, hear my prayer!

PRISONERS

Look down look down,

Sweet Jesus doesn't care

CONVICT THREE

I know she'll wait,

I know that she'll be true!

PRISONERS

Look down, look down,

They've all forgotten you

CONVICT FOUR

When I get free ya won't see me

Here for dust!

PRISONERS

Look down, look down

Don't look 'em in the eye

CONVICT FIVE

How long, oh Lord

Before you let me die?

JAVERT

Five years for what you did

The rest because you tried to run

Yes, 24601.

JEAN VALJEAN

My name is Jean Valjean

JAVERT

And I am Javert

Do not forget my name!

Do not forget me,

24601.

PRISONERS

Look down, look down

You'll always be a slave

Look down, look down

You're standing in your grave.
