One Day More – An End to Whole30

To celebrate this momentous occasion, I decided to alter the lyrics to “One Day More” from Les Misérables. It gets confusing toward the end with all the overlapping. But I felt like ending Whole30 with a musical number. So here it is…

VALJEAN
One day more…
Another day another destiny
This never-ending road to Calvary
This food we’ve eaten all these days
Has caused us suffering and pain
One day more…

MARIUS
I will not live until Friday
How can I live without some dairy?

VALJEAN
One day more…

MARIUS & COSETTE
Tomorrow feels like worlds away
I just can’t wait to treat food fairly

EPONINE
Let me have an ice cream cone

MARIUS & COSETTE
Will we ever eat again?

EPONINE
One more day ‘til I start caring

MARIUS & COSETTE
I was born to eat and chew

EPONINE
And this life that we have known

MARIUS & COSETTE
And I swear I’ll eat and chew!

EPONINE
Will be over when we’re there!

ENJOLRAS
One more day before the grains!

MARIUS
Shall I start with candy bars?

ENJOLRAS
Make the sandwiches of freedom!

MARIUS
Shall I eat my weight in bread?

ENJOLRAS
When we eat the things we want

MARIUS
Do I eat; and do I dare?

ENJOLRAS
Will you save a place for me?

ALL
The time is now, the day is here

VALJEAN
One day more!

JAVERT
One day more to spend in hunger,
We’ve not quit and we’ve stayed strong!
We’ll be ready for some pizza,
I don’t care if this is wrong!

VALJEAN
One day more!

M. & MME. THENARDIER
We can run amuck,
We can eat it all,
We are so in luck,
We’ll have a free for all,
Have some chips and dip!
Grab yourself some fudge!
Most people have mocked us
So let’s not miss much!

COMPANY (2 groups)
1 One day to a new beginning

2 Raise the flag of freedom high!

1 Everyone can eat like kings

2 Everyone can eat like kings

1 There’s a new world for the winning

2 There’s a new world to be won

ALL
Let me hear the people sing!

MARIUS
My place is here, I’ll eat with you!

VALJEAN
One day more!

MARIUS & COSETTE
I will not live until Friday.

EPONINE
Let me have an ice cream cone!

JAVERT (overlapping)
We will join these people’s lunches
We will follow where they go
We will learn to eat much better
We will know the things they know.

VALJEAN
One day more!

MARIUS & COSETTE
Tomorrow feels like worlds away!

EPONINE
And this life that we have known

MARIUS & COSETTE
I just can’t wait to treat food fairly

JAVERT (overlapping)
One day more to spend in hunger
We’ve not quit and we’ve stayed strong!
We’ll be ready for some pizza

THENARDIERS (overlapping)
We can run amuck,
We can eat it all,
We are so in luck,
We’ll have a free for all!

VALJEAN
Tomorrow we will have our way
Tomorrow is the judgment day

ALL
Tomorrow we’ll discover
What our God in Heaven has in store!
One more dawn,
One more day,
One day more!

It does help if you’re able to play each individual voice in your head. Think of it as having multiple personalities. Broadway style!
