What to do? What to say?
Shall you carry our treasure away?
What a gem! What a pearl!
Beyond rubies is our little girl!
How can we speak of debt?
Let's not haggle for darling Cosette!

Dear Fantine, gone to rest
Have we done for her child what is best?
Shared our bread, shared each bone
Treated her like she's one of our own!
Like our own, Monsieur!

Your feelings do you credit, sir
And I will ease the parting blow

Let us not talk of bargains or bones or greed
Now, may I say, we are agreed?

That would quite fit the bill
If she hadn't so often been ill
Little dear, cost us dear
Medicines are expensive, M'sieur
Not that we begrudged a sou
It's no more than we Christians must do!

One thing more, one small doubt
There are treacherous people about
No offense, please reflect
Your intentions may not be, correct?

No more words, here's your price
Fifteen hundred for your "sacrifice"
Come, Cosette, say goodbye
Let us seek out a friendlier sky
Thank you both for Cosette
It won't take you too long to forget
