(Enjolras is addressing the revolutionaries)
Enjolras:
Here upon theses stones we will build our barricade
In the heart of the city we claim as our own
Each man to his duty and don't be afraid
Wait! I will need a report on the strength of the foe

(Disguised as a rebel) Javert:
I can find out the truth
i know their ways
fought their wars
served my time
in the days of my youth

Various Students:
Now the people will fight
And so they might
Dogs will bark
fleas will bite
they will do what is right

(Marius spots Eponine dressed as a boy)
Marius:
Hey little boy what's this I see?
God Eponine, the things you do

Eponine:
I know this is no place for me
still I would rather be with you

Marius:
Get out before the trouble starts
get out 'ponine you might get shot

Eponine:
I got you worried now I have
that shows you like me quite a lot

Marius:
There is a way that you can help
you are the answer to a prayer
Please take this letter to Cosette
and pray to God that she's still there

Eponine:
Little you know,
little you care
( Eponine meets Jean Valjean at Rue Plumet)
Eponine:
I have a letter, M'sieur
It's addressed to your daughter Cosette
It's from a boy at the barricade, sir
in the Rue de Villette
Jean Valjean:
Give that letter here, my boy
Eponine:
He said give it to Cosette
Jean Valjean:
You have my word
that my daughter will know
what this letter contains
(He gives her a coin)
Tell the young man
she will read it tomorrow
and here's for your pains
Go careful now stay out of sight
there's danger in the streets tonight
( He opens the letter and reads it)
Dearest Cosette,
you have entered my soul
and soon you will be gone
can it be only a day since we met
and the world was reborn
if I should fall in battle
let this be my goodbye
now that I know you love me as well
it is harder to die
i pray that god will bring me home
to be with you
pray for your Marius
he prays for you
(Jean Valjean goes in leaving Eponine alone)
