Upcoming movie night; Mulan

Mulan

Weekends are the time for my daughter and me to spend a lot of time with each other

Many times it’s simply hanging out together. My daughter is eight years old, and is still at the age where mommy is still her favorite person in the world to hang out with.

Today, while I was checking out some Machinima for World of Warcraft, I stumbled upon a catchy little tune, titled I’ll make a man out of you. After I Googled, I discovered that it appears to originate from the Disney movie Mulan. Being a Disney fan, I definitely want to check it out. I convinced my daughter it would be a great movie to watch. A few clicks, and I’ve requested it at the local library, so the only thing left is for me to pick it up.

This weekend, my daughter and I’ll be watching Mulan. We’ll have the popcorn and roasted garbanzo beans (they’re so delicious — and healthy). There will be plenty of paper on hand, in case my daughter decides to draw what she sees.

Mulan: I’ll make a man out of you

Much to my surprise, I found that one of my favorite actors, jackie Chan, is also a singer. I studied American Freestyle Karate and Wing Chun King Fu for several years, so was happy to see Jackie Chan’s rendition of this song. I think it’s beautiful. Enjoy!

 

Lyrics: I’ll Make a Man out of You

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, was I 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 wish 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

    Hi @Jennifer,
    Whoops that was a typo. We’ll be having popcorn and roasted chicpeas. I mix seasonings with them, and roast them in the oven. I’ll post a recipe, after I make them. 🙂
