"Some Say"

[ALL (EXCEPT TI MOUNE, DANIEL)]
Some say...

[AGWE, spoken]
How Ti Moune began her long journey toward the city!

[ALL (EXCEPT TI MOUNE, DANIEL)]
Some say...

[CITY DWELLER (WOMAN 2)]
Some say her feet were bare
And the road was long and cruel

[ALL (EXCEPT TI MOUNE, DANIEL)]
Some say...

[CITY DWELLERS (WOMAN 1, MAN 1)]
Some say she got a ride from a vendor and his mule

[ALL (EXCEPT TI MOUNE, DANIEL)]
Some say...

[CITY DWELLER (WOMAN 2)]
The gods pulled up in a car and drove her all the way

[ERZULIE, ASAKA, AGWE, PAPA GE, CITY DWELLERS]
Well, no one knows
How the real truth goes, but that’s what some say!

[ALL (EXCEPT TI MOUNE, DANIEL)]
Some say...

[LITTLE GIRL]
And how far did she travel?

[GODS]
As far as you suppose

[LITTLE GIRL]
And how long did it take her?

[GODS]
Much longer than your nose!

[LITTLE GIRL]
And was she ever frightened
Or was her love too strong?
And did she know she’d end up
In our story and our song?

[ALL (EXCEPT TI MOUNE, DANIEL)]
Our story and our song...
Some say...

[ASAKA, spoken]
What happened when Ti Moune finally reached the city!

[ALL (EXCEPT TI MOUNE, DANIEL)]
Some say...

[CITY DWELLER (ANDREA)]
Some say they laughed at her
For her peasant feet were bare

[ALL (EXCEPT TI MOUNE, DANIEL)]
Some say...

[CITY DWELLERS (ARMAND, MAN 2, MAN 1)]
Some say the vendor man
Gave her shoes too small to wear

[ALL (EXCEPT TI MOUNE, DANIEL)]
Some say...

[ASAKA]
The gods said
“Put on the shoes! It’s the price you have to pay!”

[GODS, CITY DWELLERS (ANDREA, ARMAND, MAN 2)]
The shoes were tight, but she said:

[LITTLE GIRL]
All right!

[GODS, CITY DWELLERS (ANDREA, ARMAND, MAN 2)]
Well, that's what some say!

[ALL (EXCEPT TI MOUNE, DANIEL)]
Some say...

[PAPA GE, spoken]
At last, still wearing her painful new city shoes, Ti Moune arrived at the gates of the Hotel Beauxhomme. But the fierce guard saw
She had nothing to sell to the tourists

[GATEKEEPER (MAN 2), spoken]
Stop!

[ERZULIE, spoken]
But Ti Moune must have smiled her most beautiful smile. And Erzulie must have touched the fierce guard on the shoulder, for he nodded

[ALL (EXCEPT TI MOUNE, DANIEL)]
Some say...

[AGWE, spoken]
The gate swung open and Ti Moune entered...

[ALL (EXCEPT TI MOUNE, DANIEL)]
Some say...

[ASAKA, spoken]
...and went in search of her Daniel...

[ALL (EXCEPT TI MOUNE, DANIEL)]
Some say...

[ERZULIE]
Some say she scrubbed the floors
‘Til she learned where he was kept

ALL (EXCEPT TI MOUNE, DANIEL)
Some say...

[AGWE]
Some say she climbed a vine
To the window where he slept

[ALL (EXCEPT TI MOUNE, DANIEL)]
Some say...

[GODS]
The gods just lifted her up and placed her where he lay

[ALL (EXCEPT TI MOUNE, DANIEL)]
Well, no one knows
How the real truth goes
It all depends what you hear from friends
It’s no surprise, if it’s all just lies—
But that’s what some say...

[LITTLE GIRL]
Some say...

[ALL (EXCEPT TI MOUNE, DANIEL)]
That’s what some say...

[LITTLE GIRL]
Some say...

[ALL (EXCEPT TI MOUNE, DANIEL)]
That's what some say...

LITTLE GIRL
Some say...

ALL (EXCEPT TI MOUNE, DANIEL)
That's what some say...
