When We Are Wed lyrics

When We Are Wed

ANDREA
My dear Mademoiselle
I have something to say
Something I fear was left unsaid
Many thanks for
All you've given Daniel
But do not be misled
My dear Mademoiselle
You dance so very well
I pray you'll dance for Daniel
And for me
When we are wed

DANIEL
Ti Moune, Andrea and I have been promised
to each other since we were children.
Our parents are old friends.

TI MOUNE
But Daniel...

DANIEL
This is how things are done, Ti Moune.
It's expected.

TI MOUNE
Daniel, please...

DANIEL
We can still be together.

TI MOUNE(Sings)
We'll race away in a car

DANIEL
I can't change who I am, or where I'm from.

TI MOUNE
AS silver as the moon

DANIEL
There will always be a place for you here.

TI MOUNE
We will live beside the sea
We'll have children
A garden
And a tree...

DANIEL
Ti Moune, I thought you understood. We
can never marry.

TI MOUNE
Oh gods... Oh gods... are you there?
Are you there...?

VOICES(overlapping)
There can never be anythign between a
peasant and a grand homme.
They despise us for our blackness.
Marry you! You are mad!
You're not supposed to be in here.
Now what can he want with a woman
like that?
If he lives, how angry the gods will be!
The boy has the will of the devil himself.
He'll soon throw her out!
What can a peasant do for a grand homme
but shine his shoes?
He will not want you Ti Moune!
Blacker than coal and low as dirt.
I can tell you this: they'll never stand before
a priest!
Some girls you marry, some you love.
Oh, Ti Moune, what has this boy done to you?
The girl will have the gods to repay!
The gods to repay...
The gods to repay...
