Mulan (OST) - I'll Make a Man Out of You


I'll Make a Man Out of You

Let's get down to business
to defeat the Huns!
Did they send me daughters
when I asked for sons?
You're the saddest bunch I ever met
but you can bet before we're through
mister, I'll make a man out of you!
Tranquil as a forest
but a fire within
once you find your center
you are sure to win
you're a spineless pale pathetic lot
and you haven't got a clue
somehow I'll make a man out of you
I'm never gonna catch my breath
say goodbye to those who knew me
boy was I a fool in school for cutting gym
this guy's got 'em scared to death
hope he doesn't see right through me
now I really wish that I knew how to swim
Be a man
we must be swift as a coursing river
Be a man
with all the force of a great typhoon
Be a man
with all the strength as a raging fire
mysterious as the dark side of the moon
Time is racing t'ward us
till the huns arrive
heed my every order
and you might survive
you're not suited for the rage of war
so pack up go home your through
how could I make a man out of you

Shame on you, Helen! How dare you point out a duplicate! Stop trampling the innocent right this instant, you horrible evil person! Teeth smile

It's all in a day's work of being a mod, preventing duplicates from being created and the like and hated for anything that goes against a user's personal interest Teeth smile

Now, I don't know you well enough to tell if you're being sarcastic or if you're being serious in your comment. My answer to you whichever it may be: I'm not discouraging you from translating anything, we encourage users to submit their own translations despite the fact that there's a translation already there in the language they originally wanted to translate in. We discourage duplicate pages and will merge them if they are found. Thank you and have a nice day.

From the comment you had left on the page you created in Disney Soundtrack with something along the lines of "I don't know if it's on the site, but I will translate it to Portuguese, French(?) and one other language", here are the reasons why that page you created was merged to this one:

1. The page already exists under Mulan (OST), you added the song in the Disney Soundtrack page where songs that are on that page generally mean one of two things:
a. It is the only song for that movie/tv series
b. there was never an OST released for it or there was only one song released exclusively for that movie/tv series and it didn't merit its own page.

2. Since the song is clearly not either one of those two reasons, it was merged to the original already posted.

3. I'm not trying to "control" anything, these are the guidelines set for all users and all editors/mods who keep LT organized. There is absolutely no reason to have "I'll Make a Man Out of You" in the Disney Soundtrack page after #1. You're not the only person who has had their pages merged, we do this on a daily basis with many many songs, so it's not you who I'm targeting specifically.

4. I never said you couldn't submit your own translations, and just because there are translations on the page it shouldn't discourage you from submitting your own translations, there's nothing against that either.

5. It's not "fake kindness", it's called being courteous. I have no reason to be "kind" to someone who is mad that I burst their bubble by pointing the obvious when a simple search would have shown you that the song was already on LT1. Translate the song, don't translate the song, it's no skin off my nose what you do or don't.

  • 1. If you had read the FAQ, it says that you should "search" the song on LT first before submitting a song. The fact that it seemed very difficult for you to do a 15 second search for the song and you went "Oh well, it's not on LT because I don't think it's on it" isn't my fault, that's for sure.

Fernando Felippe, if you go to the top of the page prior to your work and check the title in the 'Search For Artist Or Lyrics' box you will avoid what has happened. I speak from experience. I know it is frustrating but that is something often left unsaid. Phantasmagoria does not have personal issues with you. She has tasks to fulfill and that keeps everything running efficiently for everyone.
