Honor to Us All Lyrics

Honor to Us All by Various

Honor to Us All
This is what you give me to work with
Well honey, I've seen worse
We're going to turn this sow's ear into a silk purse
We'll have you washed and dried
Primped and polished till you glow with pride
Trust my recipe for instant bride
You'll bring honor to us all
Wait and see, when we're through
Boys will gladly go to war for you
With great fortune (and a great hairdo)
You'll bring honor to us all
A girl can bring her family
Great honor in one way
By striking a good match
And this could be that day
Men want good girls with good taste
Calm, obedient, who work fast paced
With good breeding and a tiny waist
You'll bring honor to us all
We all must serve our Emperor who guards us from the Huns
A man by bearing arms
A girl by bearing sons
In canon:
When we're through,
You can't fail
Like a lotus blossom soft and pale
How could any fellow say "no sale"
You'll bring honor to us all
There, you're ready
--Not Yet
An apple for serenity
A pendant for balance
Beads of jade for beauty
You must proudly show it
Now add a cricket, just for luck
And even *you* can't blow it.
Ancestors, hear my plea
Help me not to make a fool of me
And not uproot my family tree
Keep my father standing tall
Scarier than the undertaker
We are meeting the matchmaker
Guard our girls
As it fast unfurls
Please look kindly on these cultured pearls
Each a perfect porcelain doll
Please bring honor to us--
Please bring honor to us--
Please bring honor to us--
Please bring honor to us all!
