Dog Eat Dog Lyrics

    Thénardier is picking through the corpses in the sewers

    Here's a hint of gold
    Stuck into a tooth
    Pardon me M'sieur
    You won't be needing it no more.
    Shouldn't be too hard to sell.
    Add it to the pile
    Add it to the stock
    Here among the sewer rats
    A breath away from Hell
    You get accustomed to the smell.

    Well someone's got to clean 'em up, my friends
    Bodies on the highway
    Law and order upside down
    Someone's got to collect their odds and ends
    As a service to the town!

    Valjean arrives, carrying Marius.
    Valjean collapses

    Thenardier robs Marius

    Here's a tasty ring
    Pretty little thing
    Wouldn't want to waste it
    That would really be a crime
    Thank you sir, I'm in your debt
    Here's another toy
    Take it off the boy
    His heart's no longer going
    And he's lived his little time
    But his watch is ticking yet!

    Well, someone's got to clean them up, my friends
    Before the little harvest
    Disappears into the mud
    Someone's got to collect their odds and ends
    When the gutters run with blood.

    It's a world where the dog eats the dog
    Where they kill for bones in the street
    And God in His Heaven
    He don't interfere
    'Cause he's dead as the stiffs at my feet
    I raise my eyes to see the heavens
    And only the moon looks down
    The harvest moon shines down!

    He turns over Valjean's body, recognizes him, and leaves.
    Eventually, Valjean picks up Marius again and walks
    through the sewers. As they emerge, they meet Javert

    It's you, Javert!
    I knew you wouldn't wait too long
    The faithful servant at his post once more!
    This man's done no wrong,
    And he needs a doctor's care.

    I warned you I would not give in
    I won't be swayed

    Another hour yet
    And then I'm yours
    And all our debts are paid.

    The man of mercy comes again
    And talks of justice

    Come, time is running short
    Look down, Javert
    He's standing in his grave
    Give way, Javert
    There is a life to save.

    JAVERT overlapping
    Take him Valjean,
    Before I change my mind
    I will be waiting

    Valjean carries Marius off
