Pray Lyrics

PEASANTS(Varoius solos)
He roared down the road
Like the devil himself
Going to fast around the curves
Sent us scrambling off the raod
Like chickens

ALL
He has what he deserves!

PEASANTS(Solos)
Papa Ge wants him
And Papa Ge will have him
The boy is dying before our eyes!
Help him!
Hide him!

TONTON
No, don't touch him!
Better leave him where he lies
Even a wealthy man
Sometimes dies

TI MOUNE
Please!
He needs help!

TONTON
If this boy dies in our hands,
the rich will send police!

TI MOUNE
He needs care!

MAMA
And if he lives, oh how angry
the god will be!

TWO PEASANTS
The only thing that will save
The boy's life
Is to send him back to his world!

TI MOUNE
The only thing that will save the boy's life is
me! Please, Tonton!

TONTON
I will find where he comes from

MAMA
Julian! No!

TONTON
I will find who he is, and soon!
But till I return,
You care for him, Ti Moune.

PEASANTS
And her long vigil began.
One day gone by.
And two days gone by.

PEASANTS (Solos)
The boy has the will
Of the devil himself
Clinging to life by one small thread
If it hadn't been for Julian's daughter

ALL PEASANTS
He'd certainly be dead

PEASANTS
Look how she bathes him
And touches and prtects him
She binds his wounds
And she rubs his chest

ALL PEASANTS
It's as if the girl's possessed!

MAMA
You need food
You need sleep
You just can't
Go on without
Any sleep

TI MOUNE
Mama, ssshh.

MAMA
Have some tea
Have a rest

TI MOUNE
His skin is hot
He needs me here

BOTH
Can't you see
How mush this matters to me
I know what's best

MAMA, PEASANTS
Now the sky is growing dim
And the clouds are racing by
And the gods are looking down
At a boy they meant to die
And a girl who placed herself
In their way
Pray!
Pray!

PEASANTS
Three days gone by.
And four days gone by.

I fear for the girl and her mother
As well
Nothing but trouble looms ahead
Monsieur Julian could be deep
In danger

ALL
Arrested, lost or dead

TONTON
Oh, Asaka, Mother of the earth
Guide the feet
Of this poor peasant man
Hear my prayer
Which way there?
And which way home?

TI MOUNE
I need herbs

MAMA
Your father
Gone,

TI MOUNE
Mama, herbs

MAMA
And you don't
Care
Oh, my god, what
Has this boy
Done to you?

TI MOUNE
Mama, ssshh.
He needs rest
He needs care

MAMA
Your Tonton lost
Because of you

BOTH
Can't you see
That he's in terrible danger
What must I do!

MAMA, PEASANTS
Now the sky is turning dark
And the wind is turning chill
And the gods are out for blood
They've been cheated of their kill
By a girl without the sense to obey
Pray!
Pray!

MAMA
Julian!
Where is my Julian?
Bring my Julian home!

GUARD
You want what?

TONTON
I've come so far and I need...

GUARD
Get back!

TONTON
I have some news for Monsieur...

GUARD
Get back!

TONTON
Monsieur Beauxhomme has a...

GUARD
Peasant pig!

TONTON
Please, I beg...

GUARD
You must be mad!

TONTON
I must see Monsieur...

GUARD
Monsieur Beauchomme!

TONTON
I have come so far

GUARD
So far to die

TONTON
I have found his son!

MAMA, PEASANTS
Now the sky has turned to black
And the wind is like a knife
Pape Ge is coming back
For the boy who clings to life
And the girl will have the gods
To repay

MAMA, SOME PEASANTS
Pray!

PEASANTS
Papa Ge, Don't

MAMA, SOME PEASANTS
Come around me
Pray!

PEASANTS
Papa Ge, Don't
Come around me

MAMA, SOME PEASANTS
Pray!

PEASANTS
Papa Ge, Don't
Come around me

MAMA, SOME PEASANTS
Pray!

PEASANTS
Papa Ge, Don't
Come around me

MAMA, SOME PEASANTS
Pray!

PEASANTS
Papa Ge, Don't
Come around me
Don't come
Around me
Don't come
Around me

ALL
Pray!!!
