(Marius and Cosette lead a wedding procession) CHORUS Ring out the bells Upon this day of days! May all the angels Of the Lord above In jubilation Sing their songs of praise! And crown this Blessed time with Peace and love. (The procession becomes a dancing celebration. A waltz is played) MAJOR DOMO The Baron and Baroness de Thénard wish to pay their respects to the groom! THENARDIER I forget where we met Was it not at the Chateau Lafarge Where the Duke did that puke Down the Duchess's de-coll-etage? MARIUS No, 'Baron de Thénard' The circles I move in are humbler by far. Go away, Thénardier! Do you think I don't know who you are? MME. THENARDIER He's not fooled. Told you so. Show M'sieur what you've come here to show. Tell the boy what you know! (Applause from the dancers as the waltz finishes) MARIUS When I look at you, I remember Eponine. She was more than you deserved, who gave her birth But now she is with God and happier, I hope, Than here on earth! The waltz starts up again. THENARDIER So it goes, heaven knows Life has dealt me some terrible blows. MME. THENARDIER You've got cash and a heart You could give us a bit of a start! We can prove, plain as ink Your bride's father is not what you think. THENARDIER There's a tale I could tell MME. THENARDIER Information we're willing to sell... THENARDIER There's a man that he slew I saw the corpse clear as I'm seeing you! What I tell you is true! MME. THENARDIER Pity to disturb you at a feast like this But five hundred francs surely wouldn't come amiss. MARIUS In God's name say what you have to say. THENARDIER But first you pay! What I saw, clear as light, Jean Valjean in the sewers that night. Had this corpse on his back Hanging there like a bloody great sack. I was there, never fear. Even found me this fine souvenir. (Thénardier shows Marius a ring) MARIUS I know this! This was mine! This is surely some heavenly sign! THENARDIER One thing more, mark this well It was the night the barricades fell. MARIUS Then it's true. Then I'm right. Jean Valjean was my savior that night! (Marius punches Thénardier and then throws money at him) As for you, take this too! God forgive the things that we do. Come my love, come Cosette, This day's blessings are not over yet! (Marius and Cosette leave) ==== BEGGARS AT THE FEAST THENARDIER Ain't it a laugh Ain't it a treat? Hob-nobbin' here Among the elite? Here comes a prince There goes a Jew. This one's a queer But what can you do? Paris at my feet Paris in the dust And here's me breaking bread With the upper crust! Beggar at the feast!
