"Lesson Number One" is a song sung in Disney's Mulan II. It is sung by Mulan and the farmers' children. This is the first song to be heard in the movie, which shows that the world is full of opposites.

Lyrics

Fa Mulan:
Earth, sky
Day, night
Sound and silence
Dark and light
One alone is not enough
You need both together
Winter, summer
Moon and sun
Lesson Number One!

Like a rock (Huh huh)
You must be hard! (Huh huh)
Like an oak (Mmmha)
You must stand firm!
Come quick
Like my blade
Think fast (Huh huh)
Unafraid

Farmers' Children:
Like a rock (Huh huh)
I must be hard! (Huh huh)
Like an oak (Mmmha)
I must stand firm!
Come quick
Like my blade
Think fast (Huh huh)
Unafraid

Girl:
"Okay Mulan, I'm ready!"

Mulan:
"Uh-huh, but your still out of balance. You're only half way there."

Like a cloud
You are soft
Like bamboo
You bend in the wind
Creeping slow
You're in peace because you know
It's ok to be afraid

Children:
Like a cloud
I am soft
Like bamboo
I bend in the wind
Creeping slow
I'm in peace because I know
It's ok to be afraid

Mulan and Children (in three part round):
One alone is not enough
You need both together
Winter, summer
Moon and sun
Lesson Number One!

Children:
Like a rock (Huh huh)
I must be hard! (Huh huh)
Like an oak (Mmmha)
I must stand firm!
Come quick
Like my blade
Think fast (Huh huh)
Unafraid
Like a cloud
I am soft
Like bamboo
I bend in the wind
Creeping slow
I'm at peace because I know
It's ok to be afraid

Mulan as she and the children leap into the air with the bamboo sticks:
You can fly
You have begun

Children:
Lesson Number One!
Lesson Number One!
Lesson Number One!
