Look Down

 

Look Down Song Lyrics


PRISONERS
Look down, look down
Don’t look ‘em in the eye
Look down, look down,
You’re here until you die
CONVICT ONE
The sun is strong
It’s hot as hell below
PRISONER
Look down, look down,
There’s twenty years to go
CONVICT TWO
I’ve done no wrong!
Sweet Jesus, hear my prayer!
PRISONERS
Look down look down,
Sweet Jesus doesn’t care
CONVICT THREE
I know she’ll wait,
I know that she’ll be true!
PRISONERS
Look down, look down,
They’ve all forgotten you
CONVICT FOUR
When I get free ya won’t see me
Here for dust!
PRISONERS
Look down, look down
Don’t look ‘em in the eye
CONVICT FIVE
How long, oh Lord
Before you let me die?
PRISONERS
Look down, look down,
You’ll always be a slave
Look down, look down,
You’re standing in your grave
JAVERT
Now bring me prisoner 24601
Your time is up
And your parole’s begun
You know what that means.
VALJEAN
Yes, it means I’m free.
JAVERT
No!
It means you get
Your yellow ticket-of-leave
You are a thief
VALJEAN
I stole a loaf of bread.
JAVERT
You robbed a house.
VALJEAN
I broke a window pane.
My sister’s child was close to death
And we were starving.
JAVERT
You will starve again
Unless you learn the meaning of the law.
VALJEAN
I know the meaning of those 19 years
A slave of the law
JAVERT
Five years for what you did
The rest because you tried to run
Yes, 24601.
VALJEAN
My name is Jean Valjean
JAVERT
And I am Javert
Do not forget my name!
Do not forget me,
24601.
PRISONERS
Look down, look down
You’ll always be a slave
Look down, look down
You’re standing in your grave.
