"Ti Moune"

[TI MOUNE, spoken]
I must go to him! His heart beats for me like a drum. The gods are dancing for me, Mama! Please, Mama. Please, Tonton. Give me your blessing and let me go. I will go!

[MAMA]
What can I say to stop you now
Now that you’ve heard your drums
And seen your dancers
Now that you think your heart
Has all the answers?
Who knows how high
Those mountains climb?
Who knows how deep those rivers flow?
Who knows how wrong a dream can go
Ti Moune?

[TONTON]
I won’t be there to guide your way —

[MAMA]
To braid your hair or dry your tears —

[TONTON, MAMA]
— As we have done these many years, Ti Moune
Ti Moune...

[TONTON]
What you are, we made you
What we gave, you took
Now you run without one backward look

[MAMA]
You’ll find some other boy to save
Some other life that you can share
Your heart is young
New dreams are everywhere
Choose your dreams with care
Ti Moune

[TI MOUNE, spoken]
But I have chosen. And my dreams are there, down that road!

[TONTON, spoken]
You’re a child, Ti Moune! The road is hard and dangerous. The city is miles away. And even if you get there, even if you get to the Hotel Beauxhomme, you will never get through the gate!

[TI MOUNE, spoken]
I will get there, Tonton. I will get through the gate. I’m not a child any longer

[TI MOUNE]
What I am, you made me
What you gave, I owe
But if I look back, I’ll never go
Who knows how high
Those mountains climb?

[MAMA, TONTON]
Who knows how high those mountains climb?

[TI MOUNE]
Who knows how deep those rivers flow?

[MAMA, TONTON]
Who knows how deep those rivers flow?

[TI MOUNE]
I know he’s there
That’s all I need to know...

[TONTON]
Go and find your love

[MAMA]
Go and swim the sea

[TONTON, MAMA]
You know where we’ll be...

[TI MOUNE]
Always there with me...

[TI MOUNE, TONTON, MAMA]
Ti Moune
