Les Miserables – Dog Eats Dog lyrics

Here's a hint of gold
Stuck into a tooth
Pardon me mieseur
You won't be needing it no more

Shouldn't be too hard to sell
Add it to the pile
Add it to the stack
Here among the sewer rats
A breath away from hell
You get accustomed to the smell

Well someone's got to clean them up my friends
Bodies on the highway
Law and order upside down
Someone's got to collect their odds and ends
As a service to the town

Here's a tasty ring
Pretty little thing
Wouldn't want to waste it
That would really be a crime
Thank you sir I'm in your debt

Here's a little toy
Take it off the boy
His heart's no longer going
And he's lived his little time
But his watch is ticking yet

Well someone's got to clean them up my friends
Before the little harvest disappears into the mud
Someone's got to collect their odds and ends
When the gutters run with blood

It's a world where the dog eats dog
And they kill for the bones in the street
And God in his heaven
He don't interfere
Cause he's dead as the stiffs at my feet

I raise my eyes to see the heavens
And only the moon looks down
The harvest moon shines down
