Honor To Us All

[Granny Fa:] This is what you give me to work with?
Well, honey, I've seen worse
We're going to turn this sow's ear
Into a silk purse

We'll have you
Washed and dried
Primped and polished till you glow with pride
Trust my recipe for instant bride
You'll bring honor to us all

Wait and see
When we're through
Boys will glady go to war for you
With good fortune and a great hairdo
You'll bring honor to us all

[Chorus:] A girl can bring her family
Great honor in one way
By striking a good match
And this could be the day

[Granny Fa:] Men want girls
With good taste
[Fa Li:] Calm
Obedient
Who work fast-paced
With good breeding and a tiny waist
[Both:] You'll bring honor to us all

[Chorus:] We all must serve our emperor
Who guards us from the Huns
A man with bearing arms
A girl with bearing sons

[Granny Fa /Fa Li /Mulan:] When we're through
You can't fail
Like a lotus blossom soft and pale
How could any fellow say "No sale"
You'll bring honor to us all

There-you're ready
Not yet
And apple for serenity...
A pendant for balance...


[Granny Fa:] Beads of jade for beauty
You must proudly show it
Now add a cricket just for luck
And even you can't blow it

[Mulan:] Ancestors
Hear my plea
Help me not to make a fool of me
And to not uproot my fam'ly tree
Keep my father standing tall

[Chorus:] Scarier than the undertaker
We are meeting our matchmaker

Destiny
Guard our girls
And for future as it fast unfurls
Please look kindly on these cultured pearls
Each a perfect porcelain doll

Please bring honor to us
Please bring honor to us
Please bring honor to us
Please bring honor to us
Please bring honor to us all
