At The Barricade
Now we pledge ourselves to hold this barricade.
Let them come in their legions, and they will be met.
Have faith in yourselves, and do not be afraid.
Let's give 'em a screwing they'll never forget!
This is where it begins,
and if I should die in the fight to be free,
where the fighting is hardest, there will I be.
Let them come if they dare, we'll be there!
He's back! It's the volunteer!
Listen my friends, I have done what I said,
I have been to their lines, I have counted each man,
I will tell what I can.
Let it be warned they have armies to spare, and our danger is real.
We will need all our cunning to bring them to heel.
Have faith, if you know what their movements are we'll spoil their game.
There are ways that a people can fight.
We shall overcome their power!
I have overheard their plans,
There will be no attack tonight.
They intend to starve us out before they start a proper fight.
Concentrate their force, hit us from the right.
Good evening dear inspector, lovely evenin' my dear.
I know this man, my friends, his name's inspector Javert.
So don't believe a word he says 'cause none of it's true.
This only goes to show what little people can do.
Bravo little Gavroche, your the top of the class!
So what are we gonna do with this snake in the grass?
Tie this man, and take him to the tavern in there.
The people will decide your fate, Inspector Javert.
Shoot me now, or shoot me later
Every schoolboy to his sport, and death to each and every traitor,
I renounce your people's court.
Take this man, bring him through, there is work we have to do.
Rebel (yells): There's a boy climbing the barricade!
