And the Gods Heard Her Prayer [A STORYTELLER]
And the gods heard her prayer.

[ASAKA (Spoken)]
The peasant girl wants a grand homme to carry
carry her away!
[sung]
I should...
Find a tree all covered with mangos
Juicy mangos, fat and well-fed
Pick a mango



[AGWE]
A juicy mango

[ERZULIE]
A lovely mango

[PAPA GE]
A poison mango

[ASAKA]
Drop the mango...

[ALL]
BOOM!

[ASAKA]
And knock some sense in her head!

[ALL GODS]
Knock some sense in her head!

[AGWE]
Splash her with a wave!

[PAPA GE]
Scare her half to death!

[ERZULIE]
Give her what she wants?

[ASAKA, AGWE, PAPA GE]
Give her what she...?

[ERZULIE]
give her what she wants

Love has many powers
If the love is true

It can cross the earth [To Asaka]
And withstand the storm [To Agwe]
It can conquer even you [To Papa Ge]

[PAPA GE (Spoken)]
Hah! Love conquer death? Why, I could stop
her heart like that!

[ERZULIE (Spoken)]
Stop her heart from beating, yes. But not
from loving. Not if love is what she chooses.

[PAPA GE]
Ridiculous!

[AGWE]
Interesting!

[ASAKA]
More amusing than mangos!

[ALL]
A journey!

[ERZULIE]
I will give her strength
When the time is right

[ASAKA]
I will guide her way

[PAPA GE]
I will make her choose!

[AGWE]
And I'll provide the place
Where two different worlds
will meet Tonight.

[ALL]
Tonight!
