Verse 1
Morning in Paris, the city awakes
To the bells of Notre Dame
The fisherman fishes, the bakerman bakes
To the bells of Notre Dame
To the big bells as loud as the thunder
To the little bells soft as a psalm
And some say the soul of the city is
The toll of the bells
The bells of Notre Dame
Verse 2
Dark was the night when our tale was begun
On the docks near Notre Dame
Verse 3
Four frightened gypsies slid silently under
The docks near Notre Dame
Verse 4
But a trap had been laid for the gypsies
And they gazed up in fear and alarm
At a figure whose clutches
Were iron as much as the bells
Verse 5
The bells of Notre Dame
Verse 6
(Kyrie Eleison)
Judge Claude Frollo longed
To purge the world
Of vice and sin
(Kyrie Eleison)
And he saw corruption
Ev'rywhere
Except within
Verse 7
Dies irae, dies illa
(Dies irae, dies illa)
Dies irae, dies illa
(Dies irae, dies illa)
Solvet saeclum in favilla
Teste David cum sibylla
Quantus tremor est futurus
Quando Judex est venturus
Verse 8
See there the innocent blood you have spilt
On the steps of Notre Dame
Verse 9
Now you would add this child's blood to your guilt
On the steps of Notre Dame
Verse 10
You can lie to yourself and your minions
You can claim that you haven't a qualm
But you never can run from
Nor hide what you've done from the eyes
The very eyes of Notre Dame
Verse 11
(Kyrie Eleison)
And for one time in his live
Of power and control
(Kyrie Eleison)
Frollo felt a twinge of fear
For his immortal soul
Verse 12
Just so he's kept locked away
Where no one else can see
Verse 13
Even this foul creature may
Yet prove one day to be
Of use to me
Verse 14
Now here is a riddle to guess if you can
Sing the bells of Notre Dame
Who is the monster and who is the man
Verse 15
Sing the bells, bells, bells, bells
Bells, bells, bells, bells
Bells of Notre Dame
