Paris / Look Down

This song is by Daniel Huttlestone, Aaron Tveit and Eddie Redmayne and appears on the movie soundtrack Les Misérables (2013).

Beggars
Look down, and see the beggars at your feet
Look down, and show some mercy if you can
Look down, and see
The sweepings of the streets
Look down, look down,
Upon your fellow man!

Gavroche
How do you do? My name's Gavroche
These are my people, here's my patch
Not much to look at, nothing posh
Nothing that you'd call up to scratch

This is my school, my high society
Here in the slums of Saint Michele
We live on crumbs of humble piety
Tough on the teeth, but what the hell!

Think you're poor?
Think you're free?
Follow me, follow me!

Beggars
Look down, and show some mercy if you can
Look down, look down, upon your fellow man

Gavroche
There was a time we killed the King
We tried to change the world too fast
Now we have got another King
He is no better than the last

This is the land that fought for liberty
Now when we fight
We fight for bread
Here is a thing about equality:
Everyone's equal when they're dead

Take your place
Take your chance
Vive la France, vive la France!

Beggars
Look down, and show some mercy if you can
Look down, look down, upon your fellow man

When's it gonna end?
When we gonna live?
Something's gotta happen now or
Something's gonna give...

It'll come, it'll come, it'll come
It'll come, it'll come

Enjolras
Where are the leaders of the land?
Where is the king who runs this show?

Marius
Only one man - General Lamarque
Speaks for the people here below.

Enjolras
Lamarque is ill and fading fast!
Won't last the week out, so they say.

Marius
With all the anger in the land
How long before the judgement day?

Enjolras
Before we cut the fat ones down to size?
Before the barricades arise?

Vive la France, vive la France!
