Claude-Michel Schönberg

"Fantine’s Arrest"

[VALJEAN]
A moment of your time, Javert
I do believe this woman's tale

[JAVERT]
Monsieur Mayor—

[VALJEAN]
You've done your duty, let her be
She needs a doctor, not a jail

[JAVERT]
Monsieur Mayor!

[FANTINE]
Can this be?

[VALJEAN]
Where will she end
This child without a friend?

I've seen your face before
Show me some way to help you
How have you come to grief
In such a place as this?

[FANTINE]
Monsieur, don't mock me now, I pray
It's hard enough I've lost my pride
You let your foreman send me away
Yes, you were there, and turned aside

I never did no wrong

[VALJEAN]
Is it true, what I've done

[FANTINE]
My daughter's close to dying

[VALJEAN]
To an innocent soul?

[FANTINE]
If there's a God above

[VALJEAN]
Had I only known then

[FANTINE]
He'd let me die instead

[VALJEAN]
In His name, my task has just begun
(spoken}
I will take her to the hospital

[JAVERT, spoken]
Monsieur Mayor!

[VALJEAN, spoken]
Where is your child?

[FANTINE, spoken]
With an innkeeper and [?]

[VALJEAN, spoken]
I will send for her immediately!
(sung)
I will see it done
