Song Meaning
Verse 1
Look down, look down
Don't look 'em in the eye
Look down, look down,
You're here until you die
Verse 2
Now prisoner 24601
Your time is up and your parole's begun
You know what that means
Verse 3
Yes, it means I'm free
Verse 4
No
Follow to the letter your itinerary
This badge of shame you'll show until you die
It warns you're a dangerous man
Verse 5
I stole a loaf of bread.
My sister's child was close to death
We were starving.
Verse 6
You will starve again
Unless you learn the meaning of the law.
Verse 7
I know the meaning of those 19 years
A slave of the law
Verse 8
Five years for what you did
The rest because you tried to run
Yes, 24601.
Verse 9
My name is Jean Valjean
Verse 10
And I am Javert
Do not forget my name
Do not forget me
24601
Verse 11
Look down, look down
You'll always be a slave
Look down, look down
You're standing in your grave
