The Ball Lyrics

Broadway production (1990)
Once on This Island the Musical - The Ball Lyrics

(Music by Stephen Flaherty and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens)

STORYTELLERS
The grands hommes at the
Hotel Beauxhomme.
Dancing to their own little tune.
Waiting to see...Ti Moune!

ANDREA
Some girls are saying
She's simple as any child

DANIEL
Please, Andrea

ANDREA
Barefoot and praying
And running the halls quite wild!

DANIEL
Andrea

ANDREA
And is she as pretty
As we've all heard?
Your own pretty...
Well, what's the word?

ANDREA
So this is your Ti Moune. How beautiful she is.

DANIEL
Ti Moune, may I present Andrea Devereaux.

TI MOUNE
Hello.

ANDREA
I'm so happy to meet you
My dear Mademoiselle.
I've heard you're a healer.
And a dancer as well.
(Sings)
Won't you dance for us now?
Won't you give us a show?
Please, Mademoiselle...
Don't say no!

DANIEL
Don't be afraid, Ti Moune. Dance as you always have- Just for me.

[Thanks to Dani Starr for lyrics]
