Look Down

Lyricist: Les Miserables Cast    Composer: Les Miserables Cast
Look down, look down
Don't look 'em in the eye
Look down, look down,
You're here until you die

Now bring me prisoner 24601
Your time is up
And your parole's begun
You know what that means.

Yes, it means I'm free.

No!
Follow to the letter your itinerary
This badge of shame you'll show until you die
It warns you're a dangerous man

I stole a loaf of bread.
My sister's child was close to death
And we were starving.

You will starve again
Unless you learn the meaning of the law.

I know the meaning of those 19 years
A slave of the law

Five years for what you did
The rest because you tried to run
Yes, 24601.

My name is Jean Valjean

And I am Javert
Do not forget my name!
Do not forget me,
24601.

Look down, look down
You'll always be a slave
Look down, look down
You're standing in your grave.

---------------------------------------------

Never forget the years, the waste.
Nor forgive them, for what they've done.
They are the guilty, everyone.
The day begins...
And now lets see
What this new world
Will do for me!
