Plumet Attack Lyrics

    'Parnasse, what are you doing
    So far out of our patch?

    This house, we're going to do it
    Rich man, plenty of scratch
    You remember he's the one
    Who got away the other day
    Got a number on his chest
    Perhaps a fortune put away!

    Oh Lord, somebody help me!
    Dear God, what'll I do?
    He'll think this is an ambush
    He'll think I'm in it too!

    What'll I do, what'll I say?
    I've got to warn them here
    I've got to find a way.

    Thenardier arrives with the rest of his gang

    This is his lair
    I've seen the old fox around
    He keeps himself to himself
    He's staying close to the ground
    I smell profit here!

    Ten years ago
    He came and paid for Cosette
    I let her go for a song
    It's time we settled the debt
    This'll cost him dear

    What do I care
    Who you should rob?
    Gimme me my share
    Finish the job!

    You shut your mouth
    Give me your hand

    catching sight of Eponine
    What have we here?

    not recognizing her
    Who is this hussy?

    It's your brat Eponine
    Don't you know your own kid
    Why's she hanging about you?

    Eponine, get on home
    You're not needed in this
    We're enough here without you

    I know this house
    I tell you there's nothing here for you
    Just the old man and the girl
    They live ordinary lives

    Don't interfere
    You've got some gall
    Take care, young miss,
    You've got a lot to say!

    She's going soft

    Happens to all

    Go home, 'Ponine,
    Go home, you're in the way

    I'm gonna scream, I'm gonna warn them here.

    One little scream and you'll regret it for a year.

    What a palaver
    What an absolute treat
    To watch a cat and its father
    Pick a bone in the street

    Not a sound out of you!

    Well I told you I'd do it, told you I'd do it...

    She screams

    You wait my girl, you'll rue this night
    I'll make you scream, you'll scream all right
    Leave her to me, don't wait around
    Make for the sewers, go underground!

    The gang scatters. Marius and Cosette run back into the garden and he hurriedly introduces Eponine before she takes off

    It was your cry sent them away
    Once more 'Ponine saving the day
    Dearest Cosette - my friend 'Ponine
    Brought me to you, showed me the way!
    Someone is near
    Let's not be seen
    Somebody's here!

    Marius leaves promptly as Valjean enters

    My God, Cosette!
    I heard a cry in the dark
    I heard the shout of angry voices in the street.

    That was my cry you heard, Papa,
    I was afraid of what they'd do.
    They ran away when they heard my cry.

    Cosette, my child, what will become of you?

    Three men I saw beyond the wall
    Three men in shadow moving fast

    This is a warning to us all
    These are the shadows of the past

    Must be Javert!
    He's found my cover at last!
    I've got to get Cosette away
    Before they return!

    We must get away from shadows
    They will never let us be
    Tomorrow to Calais...
    And then a ship across the sea!

    Hurry, Cosette, prepare to leave and say no more,
    Tomorrow we'll away!
    Hurry, Cosette, it's time to close another door
    And live another day!
