[The docks. Sailors, whores and their customers, pimps, etc. Fantine wanders in.] Sailors I smell women Smell 'em in the air Think I'll drop my anchor In that harbor over there Lovely ladies Smell 'em through the smoke Seven days at sea Can make you hungry for a poke Even stokers need a little stoke! Whores Lovely ladies Waiting for a bite Waiting for the customer Who only comes at night Lovely ladies Waiting for the call Standing up or lying down Or any way at all Bargain prices up against the wall Old Woman Come here, my dear Let's see this trinket you wear This bagatelle... Fantine Madame, I'll sell it to you... Old Woman I'll give you four Fantine That wouldn't pay for the chain Old Woman I'll give you five, you're far to eager to sell, it's up to you. Fantine It's all I have Old Woman That's not my fault Fantine Please make it ten Old Woman No more than five My dear, we all must stay alive! Whores Lovely ladies Waiting in the dark Ready for a thick one Or a quick one in the park Long time short time Any time, my dear Cost a little extra if you want to take all year! Quick and cheap is underneath the pier! Crone What pretty hair What pretty locks you got there What luck you got, it's worth a centime my dear I'll take the lot Fantine Don't touch me leave me alone Crone Let's make a price, I'll give you all of ten francs Just think of that! Fantine It pays a debt Crone Just think of that Fantine What can I do? It pays a debt. Ten francs may save my poor Cosette! Whores Lovely ladies Lovely little girls Lovely ladies Lovely little ladies Lovely girlies Lovely little girls We are lovely, lovely girls Lovely ladies What's a lady for? Sailors Lovely lady! Fastest on the street Wasn't there three minutes She was back up on her feet Lovely lady! What yer waiting for? Doesn't take a lot of savvy Just to be a whore Come on, lady What's a lady for? [Fantine re-emerges, her long hair cut short.] Pimp Give me the dirt, who's that bit over there? Whore 1 A bit of skirt, she's the one sold her hair. Whore 2 She's got a kid sends her all that she can Pimp I might have known There is always some man Lovely lady, come along and join us! Lovely lady! Whores Come on dearie, why all the fuss? You're no grander than the rest of us Life has dropped you at the bottom of the heap Join your sisters, make money in your sleep! [Fantine goes off with one of the sailors.] That's right dearie, let him have the lot That's right dearie, show him what you've got! Old men, young men, take 'em as they come Harbor rats and alley cats and every type of scum Poor men, rich men, leaders of the land See them with their trousers off they're never quite as grand All it takes is money in your hand! Lovely ladies Going for a song Got a lot of callers But they never stay for long Fantine Come on, Captain You can wear your shoes Don't it make a change To have a girl who can't refuse Easy money Lying on a bed Just as well they never see The shame that's in your head Don't they know they're making love To one already dead!
