LES MISERABLES


Turning Lyrics

(Women sweeping barricades)
Women1:
Did you see them going off to fight?

Women2:
Children of the barricade who didn't last the night

Women3:
Did you see them lying where they died?

Women4:
Someone used to cradle them and kiss them when they cried

Women2:
Did you see them lying side by side?

Women5:
Who will wake them?

Women6:
No one ever will
No one ever told them that a summer day can kill

Women7:
They were school boys never held a gun
Fighting for a new world that would rise up like the sun

Women4:
Where's that new world when the fighting's done?

Women8:
Nothing changes nothing ever will

Women1:
Every year another brat
another mouth to fill

Women6:
Same old story what's the use of tears?

Women3:
What's the use of praying if there's nobody who hears?

All women:
Turning, turning, turning, turning, turning through the years
Turning, turning, turning through the years
Minutes into hours and the hours into years
Nothing changes, nothing ever can
Round and round the roundabout and back where you began!
Round and round and back where you began!
