Les Misérables (OST) "Little People" lyrics

Translation to: JA

They laugh at me, these fellows, just because I am small.
They laugh at me because I'm not a hundred feet tall.
I tell 'em there's a lot to learn down here on the ground.
The world is big but lil' people turn it around.

A worm can roll a stone.
A bee can sting a bear.
A fly can fly around Versailles 'cos flies don't care
A sparrow in a hat can make a happy home.
A flea can bite the bottom of the Pope in Rome

Goliath was a bruiser who was as tall as the sky.
But David threw a rock and gave him one in the eye.
I never read the Bible but I know that it's true.
It only goes to show what little people can do.


So listen here, professor, with your head in the clouds
It's often kinda useful to get lost in a crowd
So keep your universities – I don't give a damn
For better or for worse, it is the way that I am

Be careful as you go
'Cos little people grow
And little people know
When little people fight,
We may look easy pickings
But we got some bite!
So never kick a dog
Because it's just a pup
You'd better run for cover when the pup grows up
And we'll fight like twenty armies
And we won't give up


A flea can bite the bottom of the Pope in Rome
