LyricsEdit

WARRIORS

Praise the winds of chance that blew
Xena back where friends are true
We would fight to death for you, brave Xena
When your mighty chakram arcs
throwing fierce magnetic sparks
No one ever hits her mark like Xena
Famed for prowess with a sword
Who's as feared and as adored
You've not lived til you've been gored by Xena.

WARRIOR #1

You're the warrior princess
who's as strong as an oak

WARRIOR #2

You've got eyes that can tear out
the heart of a bloke

WARRIOR #3

With one look you can wilt a flower

WARRIOR #4

Curdle milk or make men cower

WARRIORS

Welcome home, Xena, welcome home

ARES

You are the most divine, delicious warrior
A man can't help saluting your return
And if you start my heart
it's just the way you slash and burn
Bewitching woman, straining at the armour plate
You singe me with the ardour you inflame
And in my carnal heart
there's not a sorry shred of shame

WARRIORS

You and me love war
Doesn't matter what it's for
Pandemonium reigns and we're bludgeoning brains
Give us War, War, War
keep it down to a roar

WARRIOR #5

Words of wisdom Ares said

ARES

When in battle keep your head

WARRIORS

Warriors love, War, War, War

VILLAGERS

O'er the Bridge of Tears
she's crossed and she's paid a fearful cost
Her blood innocence is lost, Gabrielle
Now the past has set her free
And she's traveled home to be
With her old friends you and me, Gabrielle

VILLAGER #1

You've been plucked out from
the heart of our lives for so long

VILLAGER #2

Now we're grateful
you've come back to the place you belong

VILLAGER #3

For what ails the panacea

VILLAGER #4

surely waits in Poteidaea

VILLAGERS

Welcome home, Gabrielle, welcome home

LILA

Villains, fools and kings
have made their mark on you
Leave their easy evil in the dust
If your child had lived,
we'd surely make her welcome, too

VILLAGERS

You and me love peace
with the ducks and goats and geese
While the hours away baking bread, pitching hay
We love peace, peace, peace
simply joys that never cease

VILLAGER #1

Nothing changes but the time

SMALL GROUP OF VILLAGERS

We don't even change our mind

VILLAGERS

Villagers love Peace, Peace, Peace

ARES

Pulverizing foes requires strategy
There's no mortal born who meets your skill
Xena join my vision - don't deny your destiny

WARRIORS

You and me love war
Doesn't matter what it's for

WARRIOR #6

Chop the tree down, burn the root

ARES

Vengeance can be such a hoot

WARRIORS

Warriors love, War, War, War

LILA

Xena was no friend, she worked to twist your mind
Though you tried to change her deadly ways
Take the scythe - it's just a case of killing to be kind

VILLAGERS

You and me love peace
with the ducks and goats and geese

LILA

Sit and watch the world go by

VILLAGE COUPLE

Vegetate until you die

VILLAGERS

Villagers love Peace, Peace, Peace

WARRIORS

We love war

VILLAGERS

Peace is such a lovely state...
We can kill you so can hate

WARRIORS

Fear! Lies! Smite and smote and pulverize

VILLAGERS

Here the simple life's a delight

WARRIORS

Pus and gore

VILLAGERS

Just you put your hand in mine,
sure your future's on the line

WARRIORS

You've a son you must avenge,
know you must extract revenge

VILLAGERS

You must know that when

WARRIORS

Don't be put aside by beauty,
Xena you must do your duty

VILLAGERS

Hope died she freed you

ALL VOICES

Ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah ah...
Ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah ah...

VILLAGERS

Peace!

WARRIORS

War!

VILLAGERS

Peace!

WARRIORS

War!
