Some Say [ALL STORYTELLERS]
Some say...

[STORYTELLER]
How Ti Moune began the long journey
toward the city!



[ALL]
Some say:

[STORYTELLER]
Some say her feet were bare
And the road was long and cruel

[ALL]
Some say:

[STORYTELLER]
Some say she got a ride
From a vendor and his mule

[ALL]
Some say:

[STORYTELLER]
The gods pulled up in a car
And drove her all the way

[ALL]
Well, no one knows
How the real truth goes
But that's what some say!
Some say!

[LITTLE GIRL]
And how far did she travel?

[STORYTELLERS]
As far as you suppose

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

[STORYTELLERS]
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]
Our story and out song...

[ALL]
Some say:

[STORYTELLER]
What happened when Ti Moune finally
reached the city!

[ALL]
Some say:

[TWO STORYTELLERS]
Some say they laughed at her
For her peasant feet were bare

[ALL]
Some say:

[TWO STORYTELLERS]
Some say the vendor man
Gave her shoes too small to wear

[ALL]
Some say:

[STORYTELLER]
The gods said put on the shoes!
It's a price you have to pay!

[ALL]
The shoes were tight
But she said,

[LITTLE GIRL]
All right!

[ALL]
Well, that's what some say!
Some say!

[STORYTELLER]
At last Ti Moune arrived at the gates of the
Hotel Beauxhomme.

[GUARD]
Stop!

[STORYTELLER]
But the gods looked down. The gates swung
open. And Ti Moune went in search of her
Daniel.

[ALL]
Some say...

[WOMAN]
Some say she
Scrubbed the
Floors
Till she learned
Where he was
Kept

[ALL]
Some say...

[MAN]
Some say she
Climbed a vine
To the window
Where he slept

[ALL]
Some say...

[WOMAN, MAN]
The gods just
Lifted her up
And placed her
Where he lay

[ALL]
Well, no one
Knows how the
Real truth goes
It all depends
What you hear
From friends
It's no surprise
It it's all
Just lies
But that's what
Some say
[LITTLE GIRL]
Some say
[ALL]
That's what
Some say
[LITTLE GIRL]
Some say
[ALL]
That's what
Some say...
[LITTLE GIRL]
Some say
[ALL]
That's what
Some say...

[TI MOUNE]
The gods sent me to make you well.

[DANIEL]
You're very young

[TI MOUNE]
I can all this way to be with you.
Let me stay
