Testo della canzone The Docks (Lovely Ladies) (Anne Hathaway feat. Les Misérables Cast), tratta dall'album Les Misérables: The Motion Picture Soundtrack Deluxe (Deluxe Edition)

The Docks (Lovely Ladies) - Anne Hathaway feat. Les Misérables Cast

I smell women
Smell 'em in the air
Think I'll drop me anchor
In that harbor over there

Lovely ladies
I'll love you till I'm Broke
Seven months at sea
And now I'm hungry for a poke
Even stokers need a little stoke!

Lovely ladies
Waiting for a bite
Waiting for the customers
Who only come at night
Lovely ladies

Ready for the call
Standing up or lying down
Or any way at all
Bargain prices up against the wall

What pretty hair!
What pretty locks you got there
What luck you got.
It's worth a centime, my dear
I'll take the lot

Don't touch me!
Leave me alone!

Let's make a price.
I'll give you all of ten francs,
Just think of that!
It pays a debt
Just think of that

What can I do?
It pays a debt
Ten francs may save my poor Cosette!

Lovely ladies
Waiting in the dark
Ready for a thick one
Or a quick one in the park

Long time short time
Any time, my dear
Cost a little extra if you want to take all year!

Quick and cheap is underneath the pier!
Come over here
It's 20 francs for a tooth

Come're my dear,
I'll pay you well for your youth.
The pain won't last
You'll still be able to bite
Just the back ones

I do it fast, I know my business alright.
It's worth a go
You'll pay me first what I am due
You'll get twice if I take two

Give me the dirt, who's that bit over there?
A bit of skirt
She's the one sold her hair
She's got a kid
Sends her all that she can

I might have known
There is always some man
Lovely lady, come along and join us!
Lovely lady!

Come on dearie, why all the fuss?
You're no grander than the rest of us
Life has dropped you at the bottom of the heap
Join your sisters

Make money in your sleep!
That's right dearie, show him what you've got!
That's right dearie, let him have the lot

Old men, young men, take 'em as they come
Harbor rats and alley cats
And every kind of scum
Poor men, rich men, leaders of the land

See them with their trousers off
They're never quite as grand
All it takes is money in your hand!

Lovely ladies
Going for a song
Got a lot of callers
But they never stay for long

Come on, Captain, you can wear your shoes
Don't it make a change
To have a girl who can't refuse
Easy money

Lying on a bed
Just as well they never see
The hate that's in your head
Don't they know they're making love
To one already dead!
