Savages
From "Pocahontas"
Composed by Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz

What can you expect
From filthy little heathens?
Here's what you get when races are divers
Their skins are hellish red
They're only good when dead
They're vermin, as I said
And worse

They're savages! Savages!
Barely even human
Savages! Savages!
Drive them from our shore!
They're not like you and me Which means they must be evil
We must sound the drums of war!
They're savages! Savages!
Dirty shrieking devils!
Now we sound the drums of war!

This is what we feared
The paleface is a demon
The only thing they feel at all is greed
Beneath that milky hide
There's emptiness inside
I wonder if they even bleed

They're savages! Savages!
Barely even human
Savages! Savages!
Killers at the core
They're different from us
Which means they can't be trusted
We must sound the drums of war
They're savages! Savages!
First we deal with this one
Then we sound the drums of war

Savages! Savages!
Let's get a few, men!
Savages! Savages!
Now it's up to you, men!
Savages! Savages!
Barely even human!
Now we sound the drums of war!

This will be the day
Let's go men!
This will be the morning
We will see them dying in the dust
I don't know what I can do
Still I know I've got to try
(Now we make 'em pay)
Eagle, help my feet to fly
(Now without a warning)
Mountain, help my heart be great
(Now we leave 'em blood and bone and dust)
Spirits of the earth and sky
(It's them or us)
Please don't let it be too late
(They're just a bunch of filthy, stinking savages)

Savages! Savages!
Demon
Devil
Savages! Savages!
What are we waiting for
Destroy their evil race until there's not a trace left
We will sound the drums of war
(How loud are the drums of war)
Now we sound the drums of war

Now we see what comes of trying to be chums
Now we sound the drums of...
(Is the death of all I love carried in the drumming of...
War!
