War And Peace

Warrior Chorus:
Xena! Xena! Xena! Xena!

Praise the winds of chance that blew,
Xena's back where friends are true.
We would fight to death for you,
Brave Xena.

When your mighty Chakram arcs,
Throwing fierce, magnetic sparks.
No one ever hits her marks,
Like Xena.

Famed for prowess with a sword,
Who's as feared as is adored.
You've not lived 'till you've been gored,
By Xena!

Warrior 1:
You're the Warrior Princess who's as strong as an oak.

Warrior 2:
You've got eyes that can tear out the heart of a bloke.

Warrior 3:
With one look you can wilt a flower.

Warrior 4:
Curdle milk or make men cower!

Warrior Chorus:
Welcome home, Xena, welcome home!

Xena:
(Speaks) Ares. I thought as much. But why the big production number? What's the point?

Ares:
You are the most devine delicious warrior.

Warrior Chorus:
(quietly) Xena!

Ares:
A man can't help saluting your return.

Warrior Chorus:
(quietly) Xena!

Ares:
And if you start my heart
It's just the way you slash and burn.

Bewitching woman, straining at the armored plate,

Warrior Chorus:
(quietly) Xena!

Ares:
You singe me with the art that you inflame,

Warrior Chorus:
(quietly) Xena!

Ares:
And in my carnal heart
There's not a sorry shred of shame.

Warrior Chorus:
You and me love war,
Doesn't matter what it's for.
Pandemonium reigns
And we're blundgering brains.

Give us war, war, war!
Keep it down to a roar...

Warrior 5:
Words of wisdom, Ares said

Ares:
When in battle, keep your head.

Warrior Chorus:
Warriors love war, war, war!

Gabrielle:
(Speaks) I know this place, these people, that shop! I'm home. This is Poteideia!

Woman 1:
(Speaks) Hey look, it's Gabrielle!

Woman 2:
Gabrielle -- you're back.

Village Chorus:
Gabrielle! Gabrielle! Gabrielle!

O'er the bridge of tears she's crossed,
And she's paid a fearful cost.
Her blood innocence is lost,
Gabrielle.

Now the past has set her free,
And she's traveled home to be
With her old friends, you and me,
Gabrielle.

Man 1:
You've been plucked out from the heart
Of our lives for so long

Woman 2:
Now we're grateful you've come back
To the place you belong.

Woman 3:
For what is the Panacea

Woman 4:
Surely waits in Poteideia

Village Chorus:
Welcome home, Gabrielle, welcome home.

Gabrielle:
(Speaks) Lila! Sister-- I...I can't believe it!

Lila:
Villains, fools, and kings have made their mark on you,
Leave their easy evil in the dust.
If your child had lived,
We'd surely make her welcome too.

Village Chorus:
You and me love peace,
With the ducks and goats and geese.
Wile the hours away,
Baking bread, pitching hay.

We love peace, peace, peace,
Simple joys that never cease:

Man 2:
Nothing changes but the time--

Village Chorus:
We don't even change our mind!
Villagers love peace, peace, peace.

Ares:
Pulverizing foes requires strategy.

Warrior Chorus:
Yeah!

Ares:
There's no mortal born who meets your skill.

Warrior Chorus:
Yeah!

Ares:
Xena, join my vision.
Don't deny your destiny.

Warrior Chorus:
You and me love war!
Doesn't matter what it's for!

Warrior 6:
Chop the tree down, burn the roof!

Ares:
Vengeance can be such a hoot.

Warrior Chorus:
Warriors love war, war, war!

Lila:
Xena was no friend,
She worked to twist your mind.
Though you tried to change her deadly ways.
Take this scythe: It's just a case of killing to be kind.

Village Chorus:
You and me love peace,
With the ducks and goats and geese:

Lila:
Sit and watch the world go by.

Villagers:
Vegetate until you die.

Village Chorus:
Villagers love peace, peace, peace!

Warrior Chorus:
We love war! Fear, lies, smite and smoke and pulverize.

Village Chorus:
Just you put your hand in mine.
Sure your future's on the line.

Warrior Chorus:
You've a son you must avenge,
Know you must extract revenge.
Help me put aside my duty,
Xena you must do your duty!

Villager Chorus:
Peace!

Warrior Chorus:
War!
