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

[Powhatan]
This will be the morning...
(Bring out the prisoner)

[English Settlers and Native Americans]
We will see them dying in the dust

[Pocahontas]
I don't know what I can do
Still, I know I've got to try

[English Settlers]
Now we make 'em pay

[Pocahontas]
Eagle, help my feet to fly

[Native Americans]
Now without a warning...

[Pocahontas]
Mountain, help my heart be great

[English Settlers and Native Americans]
Now we leave 'em blood and bone and rust

[Pocahontas]
Spirits of the earth and sky...

[English Settlers and Native Americans]
It's them or us

[Pocahontas]
Please don't let it be to late...

[English Settlers and Native Americans]
They're just a bunch of
Filthy, stinking

[English Settlers]
Savages!

[Native Americans]
Savages!

[English Settlers]
Demons!

[Native Americans]
Devils!

[Ratcliffe]
Kill them!

[Native Americans]
Savages!

[English Settlers]
Savages!

[Ratcliffe]
What are we waiting for?

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

[Pocahontas]
How loud are the drums of war?

[English Settlers and Native Americans]
We will sound the drums of war
(Savages! Savages! )
Now, we sound the drums of war
(Savages! Savages! )

[Ratcliffe]
Now we see what comes
Of trying to be chums

[Native Americans]
Now we sound the drums... of... war!

[English Settlers]
Of course it means the drums... of... war!

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