Once On This Island - When We Are Wed Lyrics

Align:    
  • 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
  • Ti Moune, Andrea and I have been promised
  • To each other since we were children
  • Our parents are old friends
  • But Daniel this is how things are done
  • Ti Moune, it's expected
  • Daniel, please, we can still be together
  • We'll race away in a car
  • I can't change who I am or where I'm from
  • As silver as the moon
  • There will always be a place for you here
  • We will live beside the sea
  • We'll have children
  • A garden and a tree
  • Ti Moune, I thought you understood
  • We can never marry
  • Oh gods, oh gods, are you there?
  • Are you there?
  • There can never be anything
  • 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
