Once On This Island Lyrics

WOMAN
There is an island where rivers run deep.

MAN
Where the sea sparkling in the sun earns it
the name Jewel of the Antilles

WOMAN
An island where the poorest of peasants labor.

MAN
And the wealthiest of grands hommes play.

MAN
Two different worlds on on island!

WOMAN
The grands hommes, with their pale brown
skins and their French ways. Owners of the
land and masters of their own fates.

MAN
And the peasants, black as night, eternally at
the mercay of the wind and the sea, who pray
constantly... to the gods.
