Colm Wilkinson Overture / Work Song 가사 ROMANIZED


Look down, look down

Don't look 'em in the eye

Look down, look down,

You're here until you die


The sun is strong

It's hot as hell below


Look down, look down,

There's twenty years to go


I've done no wrong!

Sweet Jesus, hear my prayer!


Look down look down,

Sweet Jesus doesn't care


I know she'll wait,

I know that she'll be true!


Look down, look down,

They've all forgotten you


When I get free ya won't see me

Here for dust!


Look down, look down

Don't look 'em in the eye


How long, oh Lord

Before you let me die?


Look down, look down,

You'll always be a slave

Look down, look down,

You're standing in your grave


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.



It means you get

Your yellow ticket-of-leave

You are a thief


I stole a loaf of bread.


You robbed a house.


I broke a window pane.

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,



Look down, look down

You'll always be a slave

Look down, look down

You're standing in your grave.


Freedom is mine. The earth is still.

I feel the wind. I breathe again.

And the sky clears

The world is waking.

Drink from the pool. How clean the taste.

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!

[He finds work on a farm]


You'll have to go

I'll pay you off for the day

Collect your bits and pieces there

And be on your way.


You have given me half

What the other men get!

This handful of tin

Wouldn't buy my sweat!


You broke the law

It's there for people to see

Why should you get the same

As honest men like me?


Now every door is closed to me

Another jail. Another key. Another chain

For when I come to any town

They check my papers

And they find the mark of Cain

In their eyes I see their fear

`We do not want you here.'

[He comes to an inn]


My rooms are full

And I've no supper to spare

I'd like to help a stranger

All we want is to be fair


I will pay in advance

I can sleep in a barn

You see how dark it is

I'm not some kind of dog!


You leave my house

Or feel the weight of my rod

We're law-abiding people here

Thanks be to God.

[They throw him out of the inn]


And now I know how freedom feels

The jailer always at your heels

It is the law!

This piece of paper in my hand

That makes me cursed throughout the land

It is the law!

Like a cur

I walk the street,

The dirt beneath their feet.

[He sits down despairingly outside a house from which emerges the Bishop of Digne.]


Come in, Sir, for you are weary,

And the night is cold out there.

Though our lives are very humble

What we have, we have to share.

There is wine here to revive you.

There is bread to make you strong,

There's a bed to rest till morning,

Rest from pain, and rest from wrong.


He let me eat my fill

I had the lion's share

The silver in my hand

Cost twice what I had earned

In all those nineteen years -

That lifetime of despair

And yet he trusted me.

The old fool trusted me -

He'd done his bit of good

I played the grateful serf

And thanked him like I should

But when the house was still,

I got up in the night.

Took the silver

Took my flight!
