LyricsEdit

[The defenders settle down for the night with wine and a song.]

Feuilly:
Drink with me to days gone by
Sing with me the songs we knew.

Prouvaire:
Here's to pretty girls
Who went to our heads.

Joly:
Here's to witty girls
Who went to our beds.

Students:
Here's to them
And here's to you!

Grantaire:
Drink with me to days gone by
Can it be you fear to die?
Will the world remember you
When you fall?
Could it be your death
Means nothing at all?
Is your life just one more lie?

Men: [in counterpoint]
Drink with me
To days
Gone by
To the life
That used
To be
Let the wine of friendship
Never run dry. Here's to you
And here's
To me.

Women: [in counterpoint]
Drink with me
To days
Gone by
To the life
That used
To be.
At the shrine of friendship
Never say die
Here's to you
And here's
To me.

Marius:
Do I care if I should die
Now she goes across the sea?
Life without Cosette
Means nothing at all.
Would you weep, Cosette,
Should Marius fall?
Will you weep,
Cosette,
For me?

Lyrics [10th Anniversary Concert] Edit

[Valjean approaches Javert with a knife.]

Valjean:
We meet again.
 
Javert:
You've hungered for this all your life;
Take your revenge!
How right you should kill with a knife!
 
[Valjean cuts off Javert's bonds.]
 
Valjean:
You talk too much
Your life is safe in my hands.
 
Javert:
I don't understand.
 
Valjean:
Get out of here.
 
Javert:
Valjean, take care! I'm warning you...
 
Valjean:
Clear out of here.
 
Javert:
Once a thief, forever a thief
What you want you always steal!
You would trade your life for mine
Yes, Valjean, you want a deal!
Shoot me now, for all I care!
If you let me go, beware,
You'll still answer to Javert!
 
Valjean:
You are wrong, and always have been wrong
I'm a man no worse than any man
You are free and there are no conditions
No bargains or petitions.
There's nothing that I blame you for
You've done your duty.
Nothing more.
If I come out of this alive you'll find me
At number fifty-five Rue Plumet
No doubt our paths will cross again.
Go.
 
[Javert leaves. Valjean fires his gun in the air.]
[The students mistakenly think Javert is dead.]
[They settle down for the night with wine and a song.]

Feuilly:
Drink with me to days gone by
Sing with me the songs we knew.

Prouvaire:
Here's to pretty girls
Who went to our heads.

Joly:
Here's to witty girls
Who went to our beds.

Students:
Here's to them
And here's to you!

Grantaire:
Drink with me to days gone by
Can it be you fear to die?
Will the world remember you
When you fall?
Could it be your death
Means nothing at all?
Is your life just one more lie?

Men: [in counterpoint]
Drink with me
To days
Gone by
To the life
That used
To be

Women: [in counterpoint]
Drink with me
To days
Gone by
To the life
That used
To be.

Women:
At the shrine of friendship
Never say die

Men:
Let the wine of friendship
Never run dry.

Men & Women:
Here's to you
And here's
To me.

Marius:
Do I care if I should die
Now she goes across the sea?
Life without Cosette
Means nothing at all.
Would you weep, Cosette,
Should Marius fall?
Will you weep,
Cosette,
For me?

TriviaEdit

  • In the Polish production the song is titled "Wino pij", what means "Drink the wine"
  • In the Original French production the song is only a part of Night Of Anguish ("La nuit de l'angoisse")
  • In the Parisian Revival Version the track is titled "Souviens-toi des jours passés", which means: "Remember the past days".
  • In the 2012 version, all but the second to the last versus is cut, and Gavroche performs the song with the students. Marius also sings, "Will you weep, Cosette, if I were to fall?" instead of "Would you weep, Cosette, should Marius fall?"
  • The last lines of "The First Attack" are also sung at the start. However, Enjolras sings, "Courfeyrac, you take the watch/They may attack before it's light/Everybody, keep the faith/For certain as our banner flies/We are not alone/The people, too, must rise..."
