Upon These Stones - At The Barricade Lyrics

[The barricade is now complete.]
Students
Now we pledge ourselves to hold this barricade
Let them come in their legions
And they will be met
Have faith in yourselves
And don't be afraid
Let's give 'em a screwing
That they'll never forget!
This is where it begins!
And if I should die in the fight to be free
Where the fighting is hardest
There will I be
Let them come if they dare
We'll be there!
Army Officer [Offstage]
You at the barricade listen to this
No one is coming to help you to fight
You're on your own
You have no friends
Give up your guns - or die!
Enjolras
Damn their warnings, damn their lies
They will see the people rise!
Students
Damn their warnings, damn their lies
They will see the people rise!
[Javert climbs over the barricade.]
Javert
Listen my friends
I have done as I said
I have been to their lines
I have counted each man
I will tell what I can
Better be warned
They have armies to spare
And the danger is real
We will need all our cunning
To bring them to heel.
Enjolras
Have faith
If you know what their movements are
We'll spoil their game
There are ways that a people can fight
We shall overcome their power
Javert
I have overheard their plans
There will be no attack tonight
They intend to starve us out
Before they start a proper fight
Concentrate their force
Hit us from the right.
