"Honor to Us All" is song is featured in the 1998 film Mulan. It is sung by Mulan, her mother, Grandmother Fa, the groomers, and townspeople. During this film, Mulan arrived at the town to get ready for the Matchmaker. But her mother Fa Li was not impressed with her looking dirty with twigs and straws on her hair. So, she took Mulan to the bath house to get cleaned up, as the Bather strips her down and throws Mulan into a wooden bath tub. Mulan shivers in the tub, due to the water being cold as her mother reminded her that it would have been warm if Mulan would have been there on time. After being wash and polish, Mulan gets her hair styled up with good fortunate and heads to the dressing shop to get dressed up. Finally, she gets some make-up applied and a flower comb on her hair. Soon, her grandmother attached Cri-Kee in the cage on the back of Mulan, just for luck.

This was the title song to the 1998 video, Disney Sing Along Songs: Honor to Us All.


This is what you give me to work with?
Well, honey, I've seen worse
We're gonna turn this sow's ear
Into a silk purse

Mulan: It's freezing!
Fa Li: It would've been warm if you were here on time.

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

Fa Li: Mulan, what's this?
Mulan: Uh...notes. In case I forget something.
Grandmother Fa: Hold this. We're going to need more luck than I thought.

Wait and see
When we're through
Boys will gladly go to war for you
With good 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 the day

Men want girls with good taste

Fa Li:

Who work fast-paced

Fa Li:
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

Makeup Artist and Fa Li (In a round):
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

Fa Li: There-you're ready.
Grandma Fa: 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

Hear my plea
Help me not to make a fool of me
And to not uproot my family tree
Keep my father standing tall

Mulan and Girls:
Scarier than the undertaker
We are meeting our matchmaker

Guard our girls
And our future as it fast unfurls
Please look kindly on these cultured pearls
Each a perfect porcelain doll

Girls and Villagers:
Please bring honor to us
Please bring honor to us
Please bring honor to us
Please bring honor to us
Please bring honor to us all



  • Honor to Us All has a somewhat similar rhythm to This is Halloween from The Nightmare Before Christmas, in particular, several parts of the song are similarly rhythmed to the "In this town, we call home, everyone hail to the pumpkin song" part of the lyrics.
