Gavroche's death01:40

Gavroche's death.

 

Little People is a deleted song from "Les Miserables." It tells how Gaveroche joined the barricades despite being a little boy. It was cut after the London production went to Broadway. However the reprise, played during Gaveroche's death sequence is seen in productions and the 2012 film.

LyricsEdit

GAVROCHE
They laugh at me, these fellas,
Just because I am small
They laugh at me because I'm not hundred feet tall!
I tell 'em there's aot to learn down here on the ground
The world is big, but little people turn it around!

A worm can roll a stone
A bee can sting a bear
A fly can fly around Versailles
'Cos flies don't care!
A sparrow in a hut
Can make a happy home
A flea can bite the bottom
Of the Pope in Rome!

Goliath was a buiser who was tall as the sky.
But David threw a right and gave him one in the eye.
I never read the Bible but I know that it's true
It only goes to show what little people can do!

ALL
A worm can roll a stone
A bee can sting a bear
A fly can fly around Versailles
'Cos flies don't care!
A sparrow in a hut
Can make a happy home
A flea can bite the bottom
Of the Pope in Rome!

GAVROCHE
So listen here professor,
With your head in the cloud.
It's often kind of useful
To get lost in the crowd.
So keep your universities
I don't give a damn
For better or for worse it is
The way that I am!

Be careful where you go
'Cos little people grow...

And little people know
When little people fight
We may look easy pickings but we got some bite!
So never kick a dog because he's just a pup
You better run for cover when the pup grows up!

And we'll fight like twenty armies
And we won't give up

ALL
A worm can roll a stone
A bee can sting a bear
A fly can fly around Versailles
'Cos flies don't care!
A sparrow in a hut
Can make a happy home
A flea can bite the bottom
Of the Pope in Rome!


Reprise 1(Javert Exposed)

Liar!
Good evening, dear inspector
Lovely evening, my dear.
I know this man, my friends
His name is Inspector Javert
So don't believe a word he says
'Cause none of it's true
This only goes to show
What little people can do!

Reprise 2(Gaveroche's death)

Gaveroche: And little people know,
When little people fight,
We may look easy pickings
But we've got some bite!

[Gunshot. It misses.]

So never kick a dog
Because he's just a pup

[Gunshot. Gavroche is hit.]

We'll fight like twenty armies
And we won't give up.

[In pain, he throws the ammunition to the students.]

So you'd better run for cover
When the pup grows...

[Another gunshot hits Gavroche. He collapses and dies.]


MCF LyricsEdit

Wander: They laugh at me, these fellas,
Just because I am small
They laugh at me because I'm not hundred feet tall!
I tell 'em there's a lot to learn down here on the ground
The world is big, but little people turn it around!

A worm can roll a stone
A bee can sting a bear
A fly can fly around Versailles
'Cos flies don't care!
A sparrow in a hut
Can make a happy home
A flea can bite the bottom
Of the Pope in Rome!

Raina: Goliath was a buiser who was tall as the sky.
But David threw a right and gave him one in the eye.
Jessy: We had read the Bible but I know that it's true
It only goes to show what little people can do!

Wander, Starz, Sylvia, Raina and Jessy: A worm can roll a stone
A bee can sting a bear
A fly can fly around Versailles
'Cos flies don't care!
A sparrow in a hut
Can make a happy home
A flea can bite the bottom
Of the Pope in Rome!

Sylvia: So listen here, Earthworm Jim
With your head in the clouds.
It's often kind of useful
To get lost in the crowd.
So keep your eating dirt
We don't give a darn
For better or for worse it is
The way that he is!

Jessy: Be careful where you go
'Cos little people grow...

Wander: 'And little people know
When little people fight
We may look easy pickings but we got some bite!
So never kick a dog because he's just a pup
You better run for cover when the pup grows up!
And we'll fight like twenty armies
And we won't give up

Wander, Sylvia, Raina, Starz and Jessy: A worm can roll a stone
A bee can sting a bear
A fly can fly around Versailles
'Cos flies don't care!
A sparrow in a hut
Can make a happy home
A flea can bite the bottom
Of the Pope in Rome!
