My New Favorite! Les Deplorables

 

 

The Song of Angry Men – from Les Miserables (Les Deplorables)

CHORUS 1

Do you hear the people sing?

Singing a song of angry men?

It is the music of a people

Who will NOT be slaves again!

When the beating of your heart

Echoes the beating of the drums

There is a life about to start

When tomorrow comes!

VERSE 1

Will you join in our crusade?

Who will be strong and stand with me?

Beyond the barricade

Is there a world you long to see?

Then join in the fight

That will give you the right to be free!

CHORUS 1

VERSE 2

Will you give all you can give

So that our banner may advance? (To re-establish liberty)

Some will fall and some will live

Will you stand up and take you chance? (Will you stand, will you be free?)

The blood of the martyrs (The blood of tyrants)

Will water the meadows of France! (Will water the liberty tree!)

CHORUS 1

CHORUS 2

Do you hear the people sing

Lost in the valley of the night?

It is the music of a people

Who are climbing to the light.

For the wretched of the earth (For the souls throughout the earth)

There is a flame that never dies.

Even the darkest night will end

And the sun will rise.

VERSE 3

We will live again in freedom

In the garden of the Lord.

We will walk behind the plough-share,

We will put away the sword.

The chain will be broken

And all men will have their reward.

CHORUS 3

Will you join in our crusade?

Who will be strong and stand with me?

Somewhere beyond the barricade

Is there a world you long to see?

Do you hear the people sing?

Say, do you hear the distant drums?

It is the future that they bring

When tomorrow comes!
