Fantine’s Arrest

Lyricist: Les Misérables Cast    Composer: Les Misérables Cast
A moment of your time, Javert
I do believe this woman's tale.

M'sieur Mayor!

You've done your duty
Let her be
She needs a doctor, not a jail

M'sieur Mayor!

Can this be?

Where will she end –
This child without a friend

I've seen your face before
Show me some way to help you
How have you come to grief
In such a place as this?

M'sieur, don't mock me now, I pray
It's hard enough I've lost my pride!
You let your foreman send me away
Yes, you were there and turned aside

I never did no wrong!

Is it true, what I've done?

My daughter's close to dying...

To an innocent soul?

If there's a God above

Had I only known then.

He'd let me die instead.

In His name my task has just begun.
I will take her to the hospital.

M'sieur Mayor!

I will see it done!
