LyricsEdit

[The barricade is now complete.]
 
Students:
Now we pledge ourselves to hold this barricade.
 
Marius:
Let them come in their legions,
And they will be met!
 
Enjolras:
Have faith in yourselves
And don't be afraid.
 
Grantaire:
Let's give 'em a screwing
They'll never forget!
 
Combferre:
This is where it begins!
 
Courfeyrac:
And if I should die in the fight to be free
Where the fighting is hardest
There will I be.
 
Feuilly:
Let them come if they dare.
We'll be there!

Lyrics [10th Anniversary Concert]Edit

[The barricade is now complete.]

Now we pledge ourselves to hold this barricade.
 
Marius:
Let them come in their legions,
And they will be met!
 
Enjolras:
Have faith in yourselves
And don't be afraid.
 
Grantaire:
Let's give 'em a screwing
They'll never forget!
 
Combferre:

Courfeyrac:
And if I should die in the fight to be free
Where the fighting is hardest
There will I be.
 
Feuilly:
Let them come if they dare.
We'll be there!

Army Officer: [Off-stage, with a loud-hailer.]
You at the barricade listen to this!
No one is coming to help you to fight!
You're on your own
You have no friends
Give up your guns - or die!
 
Enjolras:
Damn their warnings.
Damn their lies!
They will see the people rise!
 
Students:
Damn their warnings.
Damn their lies!
They will see the people rise!
