Pray (Reprise) lyrics

Pray (Reprise)

GOSSIPERS (Solos)
Now what can he want
With a woman like her?
Blacker than coal and low as dirt
He could have the world
But takes a peasant!
Perhaps his brain was hurt!
Look how she holds him
And touches and attends him
The believes
She can make him well

ALL
And she has him in a spell.

DANIEL
You are my charm. Without you, I could never
be whole again.

TI MOUNE
I will never leave you, Daniel.

GOSSIPERS (Solos)
Now, what do you make
Of a peasant like her?
Putting on airs without a doubt
When the boy is well
And does not need her

ALL
How soon he'll throw her out.

DANIEL
Soon, I'll be dancing!

TI MOUNE
But for now, walk slowly, Daniel.

DANIEL
The you must wlak even more slowly,
Ti Moune.

TI MOUNE
Why?

DANIEL
So that I can catch you!

FATHER
Daniel!

DANIEL
Papa.

FATHER
How long do you think
You'll be playing this game?

DANIEL
This is no game.

FATHER
Surely you can't believe it's real?

DANIEL
I'm in love with Ti Moune!

FATHER
You are not the first
To want a peasant
I, too, know their appeal
But you are my son
You'll do what must be done
No matter what you feel

GOSSIPER
I know what he sees
In a peasant like her

GOSSIPER
Probably makes him rise like yeast

TWO PEOPLE
Well, the girl may think
She's very clever

FOUR PEOPLE
The boy may keep her here forever

ALL
But I can tell you this: They'll never
Stand before a priest!
