Les Miserables – Drink With Me lyrics

[The defenders settle down for the night with wine and a song.]

Marius, rest.

Drink with me
To days gone by
Sing with me
The songs we knew

Here's to pretty girls
Who went to our heads

Here's to witty girls
Who went to our beds

Here's to them
And here's to you!

Drink with me
To days gone by
Can it be
You fear to die?
Will the world remember you
When you fall?
Could it be your death
Means nothing at all?
Is your life just one more lie

Drink with me
To days
Gone by
To the life
That used
To be
Let the wine of friendship
Never run dry Women
Drink with me
To days
Gone by
To the life
That used
To be
At the shrine of friendship
Never say die

Here's to you
And here's
To me...

Do I care if I should die
Now she goes across the sea?
Life without Cosette
Means nothing at all
Would you weep, Cosette,
Should Marius fall?
Will you weep,
For me?

[Marius settles down to sleep.]

After the main song Marius is seen thinking about Cosette and saying that now she has left for England he doesn't care if he dies but wonders if she would weep for him. All Marius says is said in ear shot of Valjean who then sings bring him home.
