At The End Of The Day
  • Bookmark this page

Workers: At the end of the day you're another day older And that's all you can say for the life of the poor It's a struggle, it's a war And there's nothing that anyone's giving One more day, standing about, what is it for? One day less to be living. At the end of the day you're another day colder And the shirt on your back doesn't keep out the chill And the righteous hurry past They don't hear the little ones crying And the winter is coming on fast, ready to kill One day nearer to dying! At the end of the day there's another day dawning And the sun in the morning is waiting to rise Like the waves crash on the sand Like a storm that'll break any second There's a hunger in the land There's a reckoning still to be reckoned And there's gonna be hell to pay At the end of the day! (The foreman and workers, including Fantine, emerge.) Foreman: At the end of the day you get nothing for nothing Sitting flat on your butt doesn't buy any bread Workers: There are children back at home And the children have got to be fed And you're lucky to be in a job And in a bed! And we're counting our blessings! Women: Have you seen how the foreman is fuming today? With his terrible breath and his wandering hands? It's because little Fantine won't give him his way Take a look at his trousers, you'll see where he stands! Workers: At the end of the day it's another day over With enough in your pocket to last for a week Pay the landlord pay the shop Keep on grafting as long as you're able Keep on grafting till you drop Or it's back to the crumbs on the table You've got to pay your way At the end of the day! Girl: What have we here, little innocent sister? Come on Fantine, let's have all the news! (She grabs the letter from Fantine.) "Dear Fantine you must send us more money... Your child needs a doctor... There's no time to lose!" Fantine: Give that letter to me It is none of your business With a husband at home And a bit on the side Is there anyone here Who can swear before God
