    Lyrics

    Clopin
    Morning in Paris, the city awakes
    To the bells of Notre Dame
    The fisherman fishes, the bakerman bakes
    To the bells of Notre Dame
    To the big bells as loud as the thunder
    To the little bells soft as a psalm
    And some say the soul of the city's
    The toll of the bells
    The bells of Notre Dame

    Listen, they're beautiful, no?
    So many colors of sound, so many changing moods
    Because you know, they don't ring all by themselves
    - They don't? -
    No, silly boy.
    Up there, high, high in the dark bell tower
    lives the mysterious bell ringer.
    Who is this creature - Who? -
    What is he? - What? -
    How did he come to be there - How? -
    Hush, and Clopin will tell you
    It is a tale, a tale of a man and a monster.

    Dark was the night when our tale was begun
    On the docks near Notre Dame

    Man Shup it up, will you!

    Man We'll be spotted!

    Gypsy
    Hush, little one.

    Clopin
    Four frightened gypsies slid silently under
    The docks near Notre Dame

    Man Four guilders for safe passage into Paris

    Clopin
    But a trap had been laid for the gypsies
    And they gazed up in fear and alarm
    At a figure whose clutches
    Were iron as much as the bells

    Man Judge Claude Frollo

    Clopin
    The bells of Notre Dame

    Chorus
    Kyrie Eleison (Lord have mercy)

    Clopin
    Judge Claude Frollo longed
    To purge the world
    Of vice and sin

    Chorus
    Kyrie Eleison (Lord have mercy)

    Clopin
    And he saw corruption
    Ev'rywhere
    Except within

    Frollo
    Bring these gypsy vermin to the palace of justice

    Guard
    You there, what are you hiding?

    Frollo
    Stolen goods, no doubt. Take them from her

    Clopin
    She ran

    Chorus
    Dies irae, dies illa (Day of wrath, that day)
    Solvet saeclum in favilla (Shall consume the world in ashes)
    Teste David cum sibylla (As prophesied by David and the sibyl)
    Quantus tremor est futurus (What trembling is to be)
    Quando Judex est venturus (When the Judge is come)

    Gypsy
    Sanctuary, please give us sanctuary

    Frollo
    A baby? A monster!

    Archdeacon
    Stop!

    Clopin
    Cried the Archdeacon

    Frollo
    This is an unholy deamon.
    I'm sending it back to hell, where it belongs.

    Archdeacon
    See there the innocent blood you have spilt
    On the steps of Notre Dame

    Frollo
    I am guiltless. She ran, I pursued.

    Archdeacon
    Now you would add this child's blood to your guilt
    On the steps of Notre Dame

    Frollo
    My conscience is clear

    Archdeacon
    You can lie to yourself and your minions
    You can claim that you haven't a qualm
    But you never can run from
    Nor hide what you've done from the eyes
    The very eyes of Notre Dame

    Chorus
    Kyrie Eleison (Lord have mercy)

    Clopin
    And for one time in his live
    Of power and control

    Chorus
    Kyrie Eleison (Lord have mercy)

    Clopin
    Frollo felt a twinge of fear
    For his immortal soul

    Frollo
    What must I do?

    Archdeacon
    Care for the child, and raise it as your own

    Frollo
    What? I'd be settled with this misshapen ...?
    Very well. Let him live with you, in your church.

    Archdeacon
    Live here? Where?

    Frollo
    Anywhere
    Just so he's kept locked away
    Where no one else can see
    The bell tower, perhaps
    And who knows, our Lord works in mysterious ways
    Even this foul creature may
    Yet prove one day to be
    Of use to me

    Clopin
    And Frollo gave the child a cruel name
    A name that means half-formed, Quasimodo
    Now here is a riddle to guess if you can
    Sing the bells of Notre Dame
    Who is the monster and who is the man?

    Clopin and Chorus
    Sing the bells, bells, bells, bells
    Bells, bells, bells, bells
    Bells of Notre Dame
