Disney's Pocahontas Title

LYRICS

The Virginia Company

In sixteen hundred seven
We sail the open sea
For glory, God, and gold
And The Virginia Company

For the New World is like heaven
And we'll all be rich and free
Or so we have been told
By The Virginia Company
So we have have been told
By The Virginia Company

For glory, God, and gold
And The Virginia Company

On the beaches of Virginny
There's diamonds like debris
There's silver rivers flow
And gold you pick right off a tree
With a nugget for my Winnie
And another one for me
And all the rest'll go
To The Virginia Company
It's glory, God, and gold
And The Virginia Company

The Virginia Company (Reprise)

We'll kill ourselves an injun

Or maybe two or three

We're stalwart men and bold
Of The Virginia Company

It's glory, God, and gold
And The Virginia Company

Steady As The Beating Drum

Hega hega ya-hi-ye-hega
Ya-hi-ye-ne-he-hega

Hega hega ya-hi-ye-hega
Ya-hi-ye-ne-he-hega

Steady as the beating drum
Singing to the cedar flute
Seasons go and seasons come
Bring the corn and bear the fruit

By the waters sweet and clean
Where the mighty sturgeon lives
Plant the squash and reap the bean
All the earth our mother gives

O Great Spirit, hear our song
Help us keep the ancient ways
Keep the sacred fire strong
Walk in balance all our days

Seasons go and seasons come
Steady as the beating drum
Plum to seed to bud to plum
(Hega hega ya-hi-ye-hega)
Steady as the beating drum

Hega hega ya-hi-ye-hega
Ya-hi-ye-ne-he-hega
Hega hega ya-hi-ye-hega
Ya-hi-ye-ne-he-hega

Steady As The Beating Drum (Reprise)

As the river cuts his path
Though the river's proud and strong
He will choose the smoothest course
That's why rivers live so long

They're steady...
As the steady beating drum

Just Around The Riverbend

What I love must about rivers is:
You can't step in the same river twice
The water's always changing, always flowing
But people, I guess, can't live like that
We all must pay a price
To be safe, we lose our chance of ever knowing
What's around the riverbend
Waiting just around the riverbend

I look once more
Just around the riverbend
Beyond the shore
Where the gulls fly free
Don't know what for
What I dream the day might send
Just around the riverbend
For me
Coming for me

I feel it there beyond those trees
Or right behind these waterfalls
Can I ignore that sound of distant drumming
For a handsome sturdy husband
Who builds handsome sturdy walls
And never dreams that something might be coming?
Just around the riverbend
Just around the riverbend

I look once more
Just around the riverbend
Beyond the shore
Somewhere past the sea
Don't know what for...
Why do all my dreams extend
Just around the riverbend?
Just around the riverbend...

Should I choose the smoothest course
Steady as the beating drum?
Should I marry Kocoum?
Is all my dreaming at an end?
Or do you still wait for me, Dream Giver
Just around the riverbend?

Listen With Your Heart I & II

Ay ay ay ya
Ay ay ya

Que que na-to-ra
You will understand

Listen with your heart
You will understand

Let it break upon you
Like a wave upon the sand

Listen with you heart
You will understand

You will understand...

Mine, Mine, Mine

The gold of Cortes
The jewels of Pizarro
Will seem like mere trinkets
By this time tomorrow
The gold we find here
Will dwarf them be far
Oh, with all ya got in ya, boys
Dig up Virginia, boys

Mine, boys, mine ev'ry mountain
And dig, boys, dig 'til ya drop
Grab a pick, boys
Quick, boys
Shove in a shovel
Uncover those lovely
Pebbles that sparkle and shine
It's gold and it's mine, mine, mine...

Dig and dig and dig and diggety...
Dig and dig and dig and diggety...

Hey nonny nonny
Ho nonny nonny

Oh, how I love it!
Riches for cheap!

There'll be heaps of it...

And I'll be on top of the heap!

My rivals back home
It's not that I'm bitter
But think how they'll squirm
When they see how I glitter!
The ladies at court
Will be all a-twitter
The king will reward me
He'll knight me..no, lord me!

It's mine, mine, mine
For the taking
It's mine, boys
Mine me that gold!
With those nuggets dug...

It's glory they'll gimme
My dear friend, King Jimmy
Will probably build me a shrine
When all of the gold it mine

Dig and dig and dig and diggety
Dig and dig and dig and diggety-dig!

All of my like, I have searched for a land
Like this one
A wilder, more challenging country
I couldn't design
Hundreds of dangers await
And I don't plan to miss one
In a land I can claim
A land I can tame
The greatest adventure is mine!

Keep on working, lads (Mine)
Don't be shirking, lads (Find a mother lode)
Mine, boys, mine (Then find another load!)
Mine me that gold (Dig! Dig! and diggety)
Beautiful gold (Dig! Dig! for that gold)

Make this island
My land!

Make the mounds big, boys
I'd help you to dig, boys
But I've got this crick in me spine

This land we behold...

This beauty untold...

A man can be bold!
It all can be sold!

And the gold (So go for the gold)
Is... (We know which is here)
Mine! (All the riches here)
Mine! (From this minute)
Mine! (This land and what's in it is)
Mine! (Mine!)

Dig and dig and diggety-dig!
Hey nonny nonny nonny it's mine!

Colors Of The Wind

You think I'm an ignorant savage
And you've been so many places
I guess it must be so
But still I cannot see
If the savage one is me
How can there be so much that you don't know?
You don't know...

You think you own whatever land you land on
The earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know ev'ry rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

You thing the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You'll learn things you never knew you never knew

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sun-sweet berries of the earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once, never wonder what they're worth

The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
The heron and the otter are my friends
And we are all connected to each other
In a circle, in a hoop that never ends

How high does the sycamore grow?
If you cut it down, then you'll never know

And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
For whether we are white or copper-skinned
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountain
Need to paint with all the colors of the wind
You can own the earth and still
All you'll own is earth until
You can paint with all the colors of the wind

Savages (Part I)

What can you expect
From filthy little heathens?
Their whole disgusting race is like a curse
Their skin's a 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 redskin 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 milk 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 go kill a few, men!

Savages! Savages!

Now it's up to you, men!

Savages! Savages!
Barely even human
Now we sound the drums of war!

Savages (Part II)

Is there nothing I can do?
Will this really be the end?
Is it only death that waits
Just around the riverbend?

This will be the day...
(Let's go men!)

This will be the morning...
(Bring out the prisoner)

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 rust

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!

Demons!

Devils!

Kill them!

Savages!

Savages!

What are we waiting for?

Destroy their evil race
Until there's not a trace left

How loud are the drum of war

We will sound the drums of war
(Savages! Savages!)
Now, we sound the drums of war
(Savages! Savages!)

Now we see what comes
Of trying to be chums

Now we sound the drums...of...war!

Of course it means the drums...of...war!

Is the death of all I love
Carried in the drumming of war?

If I Never Knew You

If I never knew you
If I never felt this love
I would have no inkling of
How precious life can be
And if I never held you I would never have a clue
How at last I'd find in you The missing part of me

In this world so full of fear
Full of rage and lies
I can see the truth so clear
In your eyes So dry your eyes
And I'm so grateful to you
I'd have lived my whole life through
Lost forever, If I never knew you

If I never knew you
I'd be safe but half as real
Never knowing I could feel
A love so strong and true
I'm so grateful to you
I'd have lived my whole life through

Lost forever, If I never knew you
I thought our love would be so beautiful
Somehow we made the whole world bright
I never knew that fear and hate could be so strong
All they'd leave us where these whispers in the night
But still my heart is singing We were right

If I never knew you
If I never knew this love
I would have no inkling of
How precious life can be
There's no moment I regret
Since the moment that we met

If our time has gone too fast I've lived at last...
I thought our love would be so beautiful
Somehow we'd make the whole world bright
I thought our love would be so beautiful
We'd turn the darkness into light
And still my heart is singing We were right

We were right And If I never knew you
I'd have lived my whole life through
Empty as the sky
Never knowing why
Lost forever If I never knew you
