作詞:Les Misérables    作曲:Les Misérables

CHORUS-
Look down, look down
Don't look 'em in the eye
Look down, look down
You're here until you die

1ST CONVICT-
The sun is strong
It's hot as hell below

CHORUS-
Look down, look down
there's twenty years to go.

2ND CONVICT-
I've done no wrong
Sweet Jesus, here my prayer

CHORUS-
Look down, look down
Sweet Jesus doesn't care

3RD CONVICT-
I know she'll wait
I know that she'll be true

CHORUS-
Look down, look down
They've all forgotten you

4TH CONVICT-
When I get free
You won't see me
'Ere for dust

CHORUS-
Look down, look down
Don't look 'em in the eye.

5TH CONVICT-
How long, O Lord
Before you let me die?

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

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

VALJEAN-
Yes, it means I'm free.

JAVERT-
No! It means you get
Your yellow ticket-of-leave
You are a thief.

VALJEAN-
I stole a loaf of bread.

JAVERT-
You robbed a house.

VALJEAN-
I broke a window pane.
My sisters child was close to death
And we were starving.

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

VALJEAN-
I know the meaning of those 19 years
A slave of the law.

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

VALJEAN-
My name is Jean Valjean.

JAVERT-
And I am Javert
Do not forget my name
Do not forget me
24601

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