Pray Song Lyrics


[PEASANTS (Varoius solos)]
He roared down the road
Like the devil himself
Going to fast around the curves
Sent us scrambling off the raod
Like chickens

[ALL]
He has what he deserves!

[PEASANTS (Solos)]
Papa Ge wants him
And Papa Ge will have him
The boy is dying before our eyes!
Help him!
Hide him!

[TONTON]
No, don't touch him!
Better leave him where he lies
Even a wealthy man
Sometimes dies

[TI MOUNE]
Please!
He needs help!

[TONTON]
If this boy dies in our hands,
the rich will send police!

[TI MOUNE]
He needs care!

[MAMA]
And if he lives, oh how angry
the god will be!

[TWO PEASANTS]
The only thing that will save
The boy's life
Is to send him back to his world!

[TI MOUNE]
The only thing that will save the boy's life is
me! Please, Tonton!

[TONTON]
I will find where he comes from

[MAMA]
Julian! No!

[TONTON]
I will find who he is, and soon!
But till I return,
You care for him, Ti Moune.

[PEASANTS]
And her long vigil began.
One day gone by.
And two days gone by.

[PEASANTS (Solos)]
The boy has the will
Of the devil himself
Clinging to life by one small thread
If it hadn't been for Julian's daughter

[ALL PEASANTS]
He'd certainly be dead

[PEASANTS]
Look how she bathes him
And touches and prtects him
She binds his wounds
And she rubs his chest

[ALL PEASANTS]
It's as if the girl's possessed!

[MAMA]
You need food
You need sleep
You just can't
Go on without
Any sleep
[TI MOUNE]
Mama, ssshh.
[MAMA]
Have some tea
Have a rest
[TI MOUNE]
His skin is hot
He needs me here

[BOTH]
Can't you see
How mush this matters to me
I know what's best

[MAMA, PEASANTS]
Now the sky is growing dim
And the clouds are racing by
And the gods are looking down
At a boy they meant to die
And a girl who placed herself
In their way
Pray!
Pray!

[PEASANTS]
Three days gone by.
And four days gone by.

I fear for the girl and her mother
As well
Nothing but trouble looms ahead
Monsieur Julian could be deep
In danger

[ALL]
Arrested, lost or dead

[TONTON]
Oh, Asaka, Mother of the earth
Guide the feet
Of this poor peasant man
Hear my prayer
Which way there?
And which way home?

[TI MOUNE]
I need herbs
[MAMA]
Your father
Gone,
[TI MOUNE]
Mama, herbs
[MAMA]
And you don't
Care
Oh, my god, what
Has this boy
Done to you?
[TI MOUNE]
Mama, ssshh.
He needs rest
He needs care
[MAMA]
Your Tonton lost
Because of you

[BOTH]
Can't you see
That he's in terrible danger
What must I do!

[MAMA, PEASANTS]
Now the sky is turning dark
And the wind is turning chill
And the gods are out for blood
They've been cheated of their kill
By a girl without the sense to obey
Pray!
Pray!

[MAMA]
Julian!
Where is my Julian?
Bring my Julian home!

[GUARD]
You want what?

[TONTON]
I've come so far and I need...

[GUARD]
Get back!

[TONTON]
I have some news for Monsieur...

[GUARD]
Get back!

[TONTON]
Monsieur Beauxhomme has a...

[GUARD]
Peasant pig!

[TONTON]
Please, I beg...

[GUARD]
You must be mad!

[TONTON]
I must see Monsieur...

[GUARD]
Monsieur Beauchomme!

[TONTON]
I have come so far

[GUARD]
So far to die

[TONTON]
I have found his son!

[MAMA, PEASANTS]
Now the sky has turned to black
And the wind is like a knife
Pape Ge is coming back
For the boy who clings to life
And the girl will have the gods
To repay

[MAMA, SOME PEASANTS]
Pray!
[PEASANTS]
Papa Ge, Don't
Come around me
[MAMA, SOME PEASANTS]
Pray!
[PEASANTS]
Papa Ge, Don't
Come around me
[MAMA, SOME PEASANTS]
Pray!
[PEASANTS]
Papa Ge, Don't
Come around me
[MAMA, SOME PEASANTS]
Pray!
[PEASANTS]
Papa Ge, Don't
Come around me
[MAMA, SOME PEASANTS]
Pray!
[PEASANTS]
Papa Ge, Don't
Come around me
Don't come
Around me
Don't come
Around me

[ALL]
Pray!!!
