Episode 28 Preview - A Girl Worth Fighting For

We're going full Disney this week with the most show-tuny tune of the modern-animation era, "A Girl Worth Fighting For" from Mulan.  Find out the secret that has made this the ultimate in Disney songs in the Parry-Cruwys household that the government doesn't want you to know!

You can get the song on iTunes, Amazon Music, and Google Play.

And I even found a clip from the movie:

Here are the lyrics that correspond to the music above.

"A Girl Worth Fighting For"

For a long time, we've been marching off to battle

Yao:In our thund'ring herd,We feel a lot like cattle

Army:Like the pounding beat,Our aching feet aren't easy to ignore

Ling:Hey, think of insteadA girl worth fighting for


Ling:That's what I said: a girl worth fighting for
I want her paler than the moonWith 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 likeIt all depends on what she cooks likeBeef, pork, chicken...Mmm...

Yao:Bet the local girls thought you were quite the charmer

Ling:And I'll bet the ladies love a man in armor

Army:You can guess what we have missed the most since we went off to war

Ling:What do we want?

Army: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 brainWho always speaks her mind?

Yao, Ling and Chien Po: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

Army:But when we come home in victory they'll line up at the door

Ling:What do we want?

Army:A girl worth fighting for

Ling:Wish that I had

All:A girl worth fighting forA girl worth fighting-

So, listen, watch, read, and join us on Wednesday for our salute to gender issues!
