“The Robbery”


Thénardier (spoken)
Éponine!

(sung)
Everyone here, you know your place
Brujon, Babet, Claqusous
You, Montparnasse, watch for the law
With Éponine, take care.
You turn on the tears
No mistakes, my dears

Please M’sieur, come this way
Here’s a child that ain’t eaten today.
Save a life, spare a sou
God rewards all the good that you do.

Madame Thénardier
Wait a bit. Know that face.
Ain’t the world a remarkable place?

Thénardier
Men like me don’t forget
You’re the bastard that borrowed Colette!

Madame Thénardier (spoken)
Cosette!

Thénardier (spoken)
Whatever.

Valjean
What is this? Are you mad?
No, Monsieur, you don’t know what you say!

Thénardier
You know me, I know you.

Madame Thénardier
And you pay what we’re due!

Thénardier
And you better dig deep.

Madame Thénardier
Because she doesn’t come cheap!

Thénardier (spoken)
Brujon!

Éponine
It’s the police! Disappear!
Run for it! It’s Javert!
