A Girl Worth Fighting For


Lyrics from Mulan
Composed by Matthew Wilder and David Zippel
Performed by Harvey Fierstein, James Hong, Lea Salonga, Jerry Tondo, Matthew Wilder and chorus

Yao, Ling, Chien-Po

[Soldiers:] For a long time we've been marching off to battle
[Yao:] In our thundering herd we feel a lot like cattle
[Soldiers:] Like the pounding beat our aching feet
Aren't easy to ignore
[Ling:] Hey! Think of instead a girl worth fighting for
[Mulan:] Huh?
[Ling:] That's what I said
A girl worth fighting for

[Ling:] I want her paler than the moon
With eyes that shine like stars
[Yao:] My girl will marvel at my strength
Adore my battle scars
[Chien-Po:] I couldn't care less what she'll wear
Or what she looks like
It all depends on what she cooks like
Beef, pork, chicken, mmmh...

[Yao:] Bet the local girls thought you were quite the charmer
[Ling:] And I'll bet the ladies love a man in armor
[Soldiers:] You can guess what we have missed the most
Since we went off to war
[Ling:] What do we want?
[Soldiers:] A girl worth fighting for

[Yao:] My girl will think I have no faults
[Chien-Po:] That I'm a major find
[Mulan:] How 'bout a girl who's got a brain
Who always speaks her mind?
[Others:] Nah!
[Ling:] My manly ways and turn of phrase are sure to thrill her
[Yao:] He thinks he's such a lady-killer

[Chi-Fu:] I've a girl back home who's unlike any other
[Yao:] Yeah, the only girl who'd love him is his mother
[Soldiers:] But when we come home in victory
They'll line up at the door
[Ling:] What do we want?
[Soldiers:] A girl worth fighting for
[Ling:] Wish that I had
[Soldiers:] A girl worth fighting for
