And the Gods Heard Her Prayer Lyrics
Broadway production (1990)
Once on This Island the Musical - And the Gods Heard Her Prayer Lyrics
(Music by Stephen Flaherty and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens)
And the gods heard her prayer.
The peasant girl wants a grand homme to carry carry her away!
Find a tree all covered with mangos
Juicy mangos, fat and well-fed
Pick a mango
A juicy mango
A lovely mango
A poison mango
Drop the mango...
And knock some sense in her head!
Knock some sense in her head!
Splash her with a wave!
Scare her half to death!
Give her what she wants?
[ASAKA, AGWE, PAPA GE]
Give her what she...?
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!
Stop her heart from beating, yes. But not from loving. Not if love is what she chooses.
More amusing than mangos!
Hmmm... No. Hmmm... A journey!
I will give her strength
When the time is right
I will guide her way
I will make her choose!
And I'll provide the place
Where two different worlds will meet Tonight.
[Thanks to Dani Starr for lyrics]
