"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 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...
