about

Who Would You Be follows the journey of pregnancy of Pauline Lumumba and Queen Fabiola of Belgium, and the hopeful anticipation of mothers to be...with a twist

lyrics

PAULINE

What if you had your father’s strength? Who would you be? What if….(sigh), I’m so excited little one, and I just can’t wait to see

Who would you be?

Who would you be?

My love, who would you be?

Who could you be?



And I’ll love you

And I can’t wait to see



Oh, my love

If you had your father’s heart

Steady and strong,

To climb every mountain,

Meet every challenge

Then yours is the Earth, my love



Who would you be?

Who would you be?



My love, who would you be?

Who would you be?



And I’ll love you

Patrice!



PAULINE/LUMUMBA

And we can’t wait to see



FABIOLA

Oh, my Prince

If you had your father’s eyes

Gentle and kind,

For you our people will rise,

Courage we will find

Come to this Earth, my love



FABIOLA

Who would you be?

who would you be?



My love, who would you be?

Who would you be?




FABIOLA/BAUDOUIN

And we’ll love you

And we can’t wait to see



LUMUMBA/PAULINE

Who would you be?

who would you be?



My love,



FABIOLA/BAUDOUIN

Who could you be?

Who could you be?



LUMUMBA/BAUDOUIN/PAULINE/FABIOLA

And we’ll love you

And we can’t wait



ENSEMBLE

Nine months,

Eight months,

Seven,

Six,

FABIOLA

Give us our light, give us our son!



PAULINE/FABIOLA

Time for our final check-up!!



LUMUMBA/BAUDOUIN

What? Already?

Whoa oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh-oh






CONGOLESE DOCTOR

Congratulations Mrs. Lumumba. You’re having a healthy baby boy



PAULINE

Patrice, it’s a boy! Go get mama!


PATRICE

Mama, mama! It’s a boy!


MAMA

Ah, a boy.

Who will you be?

Who will you be, papa?



Who will you be?

Who will you be?

And We’ll love you, and

We can’t wait to see



ENSEMBLE

Hum ma ma ma

Hum ma ma ma

Hum ma ma ma

Hum ma ma ma



Hum ma ma ma

Hum ma ma ma

Hum ma ma ma

Hum ma ma maa



(FABIOLA waits opposite stage with excited anticipation)



BELGIAN DOCTOR

My Queen…

FABIOLA

Yes, Doctor? How is everything?

(happy)

BELGIAN DOCTOR

Well let's see here…let’s check in on the little one.

(beat)

Oh…uh…my queen, I don’t hear anything

FABIOLA

What do you mean…

What do you mean…Doctor?


BELGIAN DOCTOR

My Queen…I’m sorry…it appears as if the little Prince didn’t make it.

FABIOLA

Is…Isn’t there anything you can do?



BELGIAN DOCTOR

My queen…I wish I could. But I’m afraid there’s nothing we can do.


FABIOLA

Whoa oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh-oh

Whoa oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh-oh


Who will we be?

Who will we be?

My love,

Who will we be?

Who will we be?

We won’t have you,

And I can’t…



BAUDUOIN

Oh my son,

I know had your mother’s light,

Healing and bright,

You gave our world our hope,

We’re not at the end of our rope



FABIOLA

Oh…If you had your daddy’s smile,

The light of my life

Oooh…oohhh

How do you see hope in me?



BAUDOUIN

Because

That is what I always have seen



FABIOLA/BAUDOUIN

Who could we be?

Who could we be?

My love,

Who could we be?

Who could we be?



And I love you

I pray we’ll make it through
