Once on This Island the Musical - The Ball Lyrics
(Music by Stephen Flaherty and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens)
The grands hommes at the
Dancing to their own little tune.
Waiting to see...Ti Moune!
Some girls are saying
She's simple as any child
Barefoot and praying
And running the halls quite wild!
And is she as pretty
As we've all heard?
Your own pretty...
Well, what's the word?
So this is your Ti Moune. How beautiful she is.
Ti Moune, may I present Andrea Devereaux.
I'm so happy to meet you
My dear Mademoiselle.
I've heard you're a healer.
And a dancer as well.
Won't you dance for us now?
Won't you give us a show?
Don't say no!
Don't be afraid, Ti Moune. Dance as you always have- Just for me.
[Thanks to Dani Starr for lyrics]
