     [Young Cosette is working as a drudge in the
     Thenardier's inn at Montfermeil.]

Young Cosette
     There is a castle on a cloud,
     I like to go there in my sleep,
     Aren't any floors for me to sweep,
     Not in my castle on a cloud.
     There is a room that's full of toys,
     There are a hundred boys and girls,
     Nobody shouts or talks too loud,
     Not in my castle on a cloud.
     There is a lady all in white,
     Holds me and sings a lullabye,
     She's nice to hear and she's soft to touch,
     She says "Cosette, I love you very much."
     I know a place where no one's lost,
     I know a place where no one cries,
     Crying at all is not allowed,
     Not in my castle on a cloud.

     Oh help!  I think I hear them now,
     and I'm nowhere near finished sweeping and
     scrubbing and polishing the floor.
     Oh, it's her!  It's Madame!

Mme. Thenardier
     Now look who's here
     The little madam herself!
     Pretending once again she's been `so awfully good',
     Better not let me catch you slacking
     Better not catch my eye!
     Ten rotten francs your mother sends me
     What is that going to buy?
     Now take that pail
     My little `Mademoiselle'
     And go and draw some water from the well!
     We should never have taken you in in the first place
     How stupid, the things that we do!
     Like mother like daughter, the scum of the street.
     Eponine, come my dear, Eponine, let me see you
     You look very well in that new little blue hat
     There's some little girls who know how to behave
     And they know what to wear
     And I'm saying thank heaven for that.
     Still there Cosette?
     Your tears will do you no good.
     I told you fetch some water from the well in the wood...

Young Cosette
     Please do not send me out alone
     Not in the darkness on my own!

Mme. Thenardier
     Enough of that, or I'll forget to be nice!
     You heard me ask for something,
     And I never ask twice!

     [Young Eponine pushes Cosette out.  Thenardier
     says good night to his daughter as the inn fills
     up for the evening.]
