Claude-Michel Schönberg

"The Bargain"

[COSETTE]
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la

[VALJEAN]
Hush now, do not be afraid of me
Don't hide, show me where you live
Tell me, my child, what is your name?

[COSETTE]
I'm cold Cosette

[VALJEAN]
I found her wandering in the wood
This little child, I found her trembling in the shadows
And I am here to help Cosette
I will settle any debt you may think proper
I will pay what I must pay
To take Cosette away

[THENARDIER]
What to do, what to say
Shall you carry our treasure away?
What a gem, what a pearl
Beyond rubies is our little girl
How can we talk of debt
Let's not haggle for darling Colette

[MADAME THENARDIER, spoken]
Cosette

[THENARDIER]
Cosette
Dear Fantine, gone to rest
Have we done for her child what is best
(spoken)
I think so
(sung)
Shared our bread, shared each bone
Treated her like she's one of our own
Like our own, Monsieur

[VALJEAN]
Your feelings do you credit, sir
And I will ease the parting blow
Let us not talk of bargains and bones and greed
Now, may I say we are agreed?

[MADAME THENARDIER]
That would quite fit the bill
If she hadn't so often been ill
Little dear, cost us dear
Medicines are expensive, M'sieur
Not that we begrudged a soul
It's no more than we Christians must do

[VALJEAN]
No more words, here's your price
Fifteen hundred for your sacrifice
Come, Cosette, say goodbye
Let us seek out some friendlier sky
Thank you both for Cosette
It won't take you too long to forget

[THENARDIER, spoken]
Farewell, Coshette

[MADAME THENARDIER, spoken]
It's Cosette!

[VALJEAN]
Where I go, you will be

[COSETTE]
Will you be like a papa to me?

[VALJEAN, spoken]
Yes, Cosette, this is true
(sung)
I'll be father and mother to you
