Our Prayer Nettie

I wanna know how the world goes.



How far is the moon?

How the sky changes color?

Hope i find out soon.

Nettie

What you want?

Celie

I wanna sit and do nothing.

Make you a new dress.

Hope my babies are happy,

Someplace god will bless.

Pa

Celie! Get to work!

Nettie

Ain't no need to discuss.

Celie

It ain't worth a big fuss.

Nettie & celie

Whatever come to us

Is in god's hands.

When i lay me down to sleep,

I will say my prayer

That god love me so deep,

He will promise our souls to keep

Together.

I'll say a prayer.

Nettie

Who that man talkin' to pa?

Celie

Mister

She a sweet young girl.

Pa

In this whole world.

Pa

She gonna be a teacher.

Nettie

Picture me in a schoolhouse

With my college degree.

I could teach all my children

To spell tennessee.

Pa

You can have celie, though. She too old to be livin' at home.

Celie

Maybe i'll have a garden

Where birds come to sing.

Know a finch from a sparrow,

Fix a broken wing.

Mister

I don't want celie. She ugly.

Nettie

I wanna hear your birds sing.

Celie

Wanna hear your school bell ring.

Nettie & celie

No matter what life bring,

Us in god's hands.
