Lyrics

Regular

Part 1

Ratcliffe: What can you expect from filthy little heathens?
Here's what you get when races are diverse! (Soundtrack version: "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!
English Settlers: They're savages!
Savages!
Ratcliffe: Barely even human.
English Settlers: Savages! Savages!
Ratcliffe: 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!
English Settlers: They're savages!
Savages!
Dirty shrieking devils! (Soundtrack version: "Dirty redskin devils!")
Ratcliffe and English Settlers: Now we sound the drums of war!
Powhatan: This is what we feared.
The paleface is a demon.
The only thing they feel at all is greed.
Kekata: Beneath that milky hide, there's emptiness inside.
Native American Indians: I wonder if they even bleed.
They're savages!
Savages!
Powhatan and Native American Indians: Barely even human.
Native American Indians: Savages! Savages!
Powhatan: Killers at the core.
Kekata: They're different from us,
which means they can't be trusted.
Powhatan: We must sound the drums of war.
Native American Indians: They're savages!
Savages!
First we deal with this one.
Then we sound the drums of war.
English Settlers: Savages! Savages!
Ben: Let's go get a few, men! (Soundtrack version: "Let's go kill a few, men!")
Native American Indians: Savages! Savages!
Ratcliffe: Now it's up to you, men!
All: Savages! Savages!
Barely even human!
Now we sound the drums of war!

Part 2

(In soundtrack)
Pocahontas: Is there nothing I can do?
Will this really be the end?
Is it only death that waits
Just around the riverbend?
Ratcliffe: This will be the day.
(Let's go, men!)
Powhatan: This will be the morning.
(Bring out the prisoner!)
Native American Indians: 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.
Ratcliffe and English Settlers: Now we make them pay.
Pocahontas: Eagle, help my feet to fly.
Native American Indians: Now without a warning.
Pocahontas: Mountain, help my heart be great.
Native American Indians: Now we leave 'em blood and bone and rust.
Pocahontas: Spirits of the Earth and Sky...
English Settlers and Native American Indians: It's them or us.
Pocahontas: Please don't let it be too late...
English Settlers and Native American Indians: They're just a bunch of filthy, stinking...
Native American: Savages!
English Settlers: Savages!
Native American Indians: Demons!
English Settlers: Devils!
Ratcliffe: Kill them!
Native American Indians: Savages!
English Settlers: Savages!
Ratcliffe and English Settlers: What are we waiting for?
Ratcliffe, English Settlers, and Native American Indians: Destroy their evil race until there's not a trace left.
Pocahontas: How loud are the drums of the war?
Radcliffe, English Settlers, and Native American Indians: We will sound the drums of war! Savages! Savages!
Radcliffe, English Settlers, and Native American Indians: Now we sound the drums of war! Savages! Savages!
English Settlers and Native American Indians: Now we see what comes of trying to be chums.
English Settlers Native American Indians: Now we sound the drums of...
Pocahontas: Is this the death of all I love carried in the drumming of...
English Settlers and Native American Indians War!

Brian Griffin's version

Brian: This will be the day. This will be the morning.(Bring out the dragon!)
People of Quahog: We will see them dying in the dust.
Yuna: I don't know what I can do. Still, I know I've got to try.

Trivia

  • This is the third song to have a voice actor doing two characters at the same time. (In this case, it's Jim Cummings voicing Chief Powhatan and Kekata.) The first two are "Be Prepared" and "Mine, Mine, Mine". This is also the second time Jim Cummings has voiced two characters in a song.
  • This song is an allegory to racism: English settlers call the Natives "savages" while knowing little to nothing about them and being the true aggressors, Natives call English settlers "savages" for the same reasons.
  • This is the second song that has racist views of Native Americans, the first one being What Made the Red Man Red?, although it is done intentionally to highlight the prejudice held by Governor Ratcliffe.
  • Savages is very similar to "The Mob Song" in Beauty and the Beast. The main villain exploits his/her minions' fear of the unknown to get them on a pretended heroic fight, when actually they only want to satisfy themselves and their vices (Governor Ratcliffe's greed and Gaston's jealousy).
  • The film cuts out Pocahontas' first verse in the second part, instead beginning with Ratcliffe announcing "This will be the day."
  • In the film, Ratcliffe say the verse: "Here's what you get when races are diverse!" However, in the soundtrack, he says "Their whole disgusting race is like a curse."
    • Similarly, in the film, the settlers and Ratcliffe say "Dirty, shrieking devils." The soundtrack uses "Dirty redskin devils", possibly to be more racially sensitive.
  • This song has some similarities with the score of "Paris Burning" from The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
