Lyrics start: "The laugh at me these fellows, just because I am small...."

“Little People” is a piece from the musical ‘Les Miserables‘ composed by Claude-Michel Schonberg.

“Little People” takes place at the barricades. Gavroche tells the revolutionaries that Javert is a spy and is really a police inspector.

“Little People” is Gavroche’s most famous song in the musical Les Misérables.

The lyrics were written by Herbert Kretzmer.

On the original French concept album, “Little People” is known as “La Faute à Voltaire.”  This was then shortened on a more recent French album to “C’est la faute à…”.  When Les Misérables was originally in London in 1985, “Little People” was over two minutes long and had extra verses and a second chorus, and it mentioned nothing about Inspector Javert.  It was sung in between “Look Down” and “Stars.”

“Little People” was cut down to what it is today when it came to Broadway in 1987.  As of when the new orchestrations were added to the musical, the chorus from “Little People” has been cut as well, but it is still somewhat known to those that knew the song before the cuts.
