The lyrics were written by Herbert Kretzmer.

LyricsEdit

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!
 
[Javert climbs over the barricade.]
 
Javert:
Listen my friends
I have done as I said
I have been to their lines
I have counted each man
I will tell what I can
Better be warned
They have armies to spare
And our danger is real
We will need all our cunning
To bring them to heel.
 
Enjolras:
Have faith
If you know what their movements are
We'll spoil their game
There are ways that a people can fight
We shall overcome their power.
 
Javert:
I have overheard their plans
There will be no attack tonight
They intend to starve us out
Before they start a proper fight
Concentrate their force
Hit us from the right.
