[WOMAN]
There is an island where rivers run deep.

[MAN]
Where the sea sparkling in the sun earns it
the name Jewel of the Antilles

[WOMAN]
An island where the poorest of peasants labor.

[MAN]
And the wealthiest of grands hommes play.

[MAN]
Two different worlds on on island!

[WOMAN]
The grands hommes, with their pale brown
skins and their French ways. Owners of the
land and masters of their own fates.

[MAN]
And the peasants, black as night, eternally at
the mercay of the wind and the sea, who pray
constantly... to the gods.
