For the record, here are the lyrics in English:

DO YOU HEAR THE PEOPLE SING?
from Les Miserables
Music by Claude-Michel Schonberg, Lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer (1987)


Enjolras
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!

Combeferre
Will you join in our crusade?
Who will be strong and stand with me?
Somewhere beyond the barricade
Is there a world you long to see?

Courfeyrac
Then join in the fight
That will give you the right to be free!!

All
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!

Feuilly
Will you give all you can give
So that our banner may advance
Some will fall and some will live
Will you stand up and take your chance?
The blood of the martyrs
Will water the meadows of France!

All
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes

This is such a great chorus song, with a lovely harmony line, that I feel compelled to create an ABC for it. I'll let ya' know.

Regards, John

I'm not so certain that I have the 'correct' key signature here to minimise accidentals, but it seems close enough for folk music. You can copy and paste the notation below HERE, to either listen to the tune or print a high quality PDF image of the music. The vocal harmony is on the second/bottom stave.

I was too lazy to incorporate the lyrics in the ABC notation.

Regards, John

PS If anyone knows how to embed a %%MIDI Pan command into the ABC notation that would make the harmony a lot easier to distinguish during MIDI playback.

Subject: Lyr Add: À LA VOLONTÉ DU PEUPLE (Boublil/Schönberg
From: GUEST,.gargoyle
Date: 10 Oct 15 - 11:10 PM

"Do You Hear the People Sing"
"À la volonté du peuple"
via - lyricsplayground

Lyrics - Alain Boublil 1980
Tune - Claude-Michel Schönberg

A la volonté du peuple
Et à la santé du progrès,
Remplis ton cœur d'un vin rebelle
Et à demain, ami fidèle.
Nous voulons faire la lumière
Malgré le masque de la nuit
Pour illuminer notre terre
Et changer la vie.

Il faut gagner à la guerre
Notre sillon à labourer,
Déblayer la misère
Pour les blonds épis de la paix
Qui danseront de joie
Au grand vent de la liberté.

A la volonté du peuple
Et à la santé du progrès,
Remplis ton cœur d'un vin rebelle
Et à demain, ami fidèle.
Nous voulons faire la lumière
Malgré le masque de la nuit
Pour illuminer notre terre
Et changer la vie.

A la volonté du peuple,
Je fais don de ma volonté.
S'il faut mourir pour elle,
Moi je veux être le premier,
Le premier nom gravé
Au marbre du monument d'espoir.

A la volonté du peuple
Et à la santé du progrès,
Remplis ton cœur d'un vin rebelle
Et à demain, ami fidèle.
Nous voulons faire la lumière
Malgré le masque de la nuit
Pour illuminer notre terre
Et changer la vie.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle




Chico - a decade late but... (btw - Thank You for posting the lyrics and chords)
The meter and tune is almost "Jesus Loves the Little Children" , although it has also been compared to "Tramp, Tramp, the Boys are Marching"
