"Honor to Us All"
Time: 3:30 min.

Vocals: Beth Fowler, Marnie Nixon, Lea Solonga, & Chorus
Music by Matthew Wilder
Lyrics by David Zipple

This is what you give me
to work with?
Well, honey, I've seen worse
We're gonna 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 gladly go to war for you
With good fortune
And a great hairdo
You'll bring honor to us all

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

Men want girls
with good taste
Calm
Obedient
Who work fast-paced
With good breeding
And a tiny waist
You'll bring honor to us all

We all must serve our Emperor
Who guards us from the Huns
A man by bearing arms
A girl by bearing sons

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
An apple for serenity...
A pendant for balance...
Beads of jade for beauty
You must proudly show it
Now add a cricket for good luck
And even you can't blow it

Ancestors
Hear my plea
Help me not to make a fool of me
And to not uproot my family tree
Keep my father standing tall

Scarier than the undertaker
We are meeting our matchmaker
Destiny
Guard our girls
And our 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

"Reflection"
Time: 2:27 min.

Vocal: Lea Solonga
Music by Matthew Wilder
Lyrics by David Zipple

Look at me
I will never pass
as a perfect bride
Or a perfect daughter
Can it be
I'm not meant to play this part?
Now I see
That if I were truly
To be myself
I would break my fam'ly's heart

Who is that girl I see
Staring straight
Back at me?
Why is my reflection someone
I don't know?
Somehow I cannot hide
Who I am
Though I've tried
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?

"I'll Make a Man Out of You"
Time: 3:21 min.

Vocals: Donny Osmand & Chorus
Music by Matthew Wilder
Lyrics by David Zipple

Let's get down to business-
to defeat the Huns
Did they send me daughters
when I asked for sons?
You're the saddest bunch
I ever met
But you can bet
before we're through
Mister, I'll make a man
out of you

Tranquil as a forest
But on fire within
Once you find your center
You are sure to win
You're a spineless, pale
pathetic lot
And you haven't got a clue
Somehow  I'll make a man
out of you

I'm never gonna catch my breath
Say good-bye to those who knew me
Boy I was a fool in school for cutting gym
This guy's got'em scared to death
Hope he doesn't see right through me
Now I really with that I knew how to swim

(Be a man)
We must be swift as the coursing river
(Be a man)
With all the force of a great typhoon
(Be a man)
With all the strength of a raging fire
Mysterious as the dark side of the moon

Time is racing toward us
till the Huns arrive
Heed my every order
and you might survive
You're unsuited for
the rage of war
So pack up, go home
you're through
How could I make a man out of you?

(Be a man)
We must be swift as the coursing river
(Be a man)
With all the force of a great typhoon
(Be a man)
With all the strength of a raging fire
Mysterious as the dark side of the moon

(Be a man)
We must be swift as the coursing river
(Be a man)
With all the force of a great typhoon
(Be a man)
With all the strength of a raging fire
Mysterious as the dark side of the moon

"A Girl Worth Fighting For"
Time: 2:26 min.

Vocals: Harvey Feirstein, James Hong, Lea Solonga,
Jerry Tondo, Matthew Wilder, & Chorus
Music by Matthew Wilder
Lyrics by David Zipple

For a long time we've been
marching off to battle
In our thundering herd
we feel a lot like cattle
Like the pounding beat
our aching feet aren't easy to ignore
Hey, think of instead
A girl worth fighting for
Huh?
That's what I said:
A girl worth fighting for

I want her paler than the moon
With eyes that shine like stars
My girl will marvel at my strength, adore my battle scars
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...
Mmm...

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

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

I've a girl back home who's
not like any other
Yeah, the only girl who'd
love him is his mother
But when we come home
in victory they'll line up
at the door
What do we want?
A girl worth fighting for
Wish that I had
A girl worth fighting for
A girl worth fighting--

"True to Your Heart"
Time: 4:16 min.

Vocals: 98 Degrees & Stevie Wonder
Music by Matthew Wilder
Lyrics by David Zipple

Baby, I knew at once that
you were meant for me
Deep in my soul I know
that I'm your  destiny
Why fight the tide
Don't think so much
Let your heart decide

Baby, I see your future
and it's tied to mine
I look in your eyes and see
you searching for a sign
But you'll never fall
Till you let go
Don't be so scared
Of what you don't know

Chorus:
True to your heart
You must be true
to your heart
That's when the
heavens will part
And baby, shower you
with my love
Open your eyes
Your heart can tell
you no lies
And when you're true
to your heart
I know it's gonna lead
you straight to me
(Got to be true
to your heart)

Someone ya know is on
your side, can set you free
I can do that for you if
you believe in me
Why second-guess
What feels so right
Just trust your heart
And you'll see the light

Chorus:
True to your heart
You must be true
to your heart
That's when the
heavens will part
And baby, shower you
with my love
Open your eyes
Your heart can tell
you no lies
And when you're true
to your heart
I know it's gonna lead
you straight to me

(Ya know it's true)
Your heart knows what's good for you
(Good for you)
Let you heart show
you the way
(Ya know it's true)
It'll see you through
(Got to be true
to your heart)

Girl,  my heart is driving
me to where you are
You can take both hands off
the wheel and still get far
Be swept away
Enjoy the ride
You won't get lost
With your heart to guide you

True to your heart
You must be true
to your heart
That's when the
heavens will part
And baby, shower you
with my love
Open your eyes
Your heart can tell
you no lies
And when you're true
to your heart
I know it's gonna lead
you straight to me

True to your heart
You must be true
to your heart
That's when the
heavens will part
And baby, shower you
with my love
Open your eyes
Your heart can tell
you no lies
And when you're true
to your heart
I know it's gonna lead
you straight to me
(Got to be true
to your heart)

When things are gettin' crazy
And you don't know
where to start
Keep on believin', bay
Just be true to your heart
When all the world around you
It seems to fall apart
Keep on believin', baby
Just be true to your heart
(Ad lib)

"Reflections" (Pop Version)
Time: 3:36 min.

Vocal: Christina Alguilera
Music by Matthew Wilder
Lyrics by David Zipple

Look at me
You may think you see
who I really am
But you'll never know me
Ev'ry day
It's as if I play a part
Now I see
If I wear a mask
I can fool the world
But I cannot fool my heart

Who is that girl I see
Staring straight back at me?
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?

I am now in a world where I have to
hide my heart
And what I believe in
But somehow
I will show the world
What's inside my heart
And be loved for who I am

Who is that girl I see
Staring straight back at me?
Why is my reflection
someone I don't know?
Must I pretend that I'm
Someone else for all time?
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?

There's a heart that must
be free to fly
That burns with a need
to know the reason why
Why must we all conceal
What we think
How we feel?
Must there be a secret me
I'm forced to hide?

I won't pretend that I'm
Some else
For all time
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?

Eternal Memory

INSPIRED FROM THE MOVIE "MULAN"

Vocal: Lena Park
Music by Jae Hong Shin & Hyun Chul Kim
Lyrics by Reggie Yeo

In my heart, I dreamed of all that used to be
The place that we called memories
That now, time has taken all from me
All alone, I wandered down this paradise
How I used to look in your eyes, kissed your smile
And treasured all these times

Memories last forever
Pains that stayed within me
Dreaming of you, they never come true
Magic of the moment
Come and gone forever
Taking your love, away from my world

Now I know, I have to walk this road alone
The road that takes me far from you, from your love
From the one I call my own
Leaving you, I never can forget that time
The time we thought that all was fine
Suddenly I hope that you are mine

Memories last forever
Pains that stayed within me
Dreaming of you, they never come true
Magic of the moment
Come and gone forever
Taking your love, away from my world

Away from my world

Now that I am so far from your touch
Hoping that I can be
Your eternal memory

Memories last forever
Pains that stayed within me
Dreaming of you, they never come true
Magic of the moment
Come and gone forever
Taking your love, away from my world

Eternal Memory
