The song is about Li Shang trying to train his troop into capable warriors. He starts voicing disipointment but by the end turns to approval as the men (and Mulan) improve. The words "I'll make a man out of you." serve the duel purpose ofwhat Li intends to do to the soldiers, as well as be ironic as Mulan is not a man at all.

Lyrics

Li Shang: 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 on 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

Chien Po: I'm never gonna catch my breath
Yao: Say good bye to those who knew me
Ling: Boy, was I fool in school for cutting gym

Mushu: This guy's got 'em scared to death
Mulan: Hope he doesn't see right through me
Chien Po: Now I really wish that I knew how to swim

Shang: (Be a man)
Chorus: We must be swift as the coursing river
(Be a man)
With all the force of a great typhoon
(Be a man)
With all the strength of a raging fire
Mysterious as the dark side of the moon

Li Shang: Time is racing toward us
Till the Huns arrive
Heed my every order
And you might survive
You're unsuited for
The rage of war
So pack up, go home
You're through
How could I make a man out of you?

Shang: (Be a man)
Chorus: We must be swift as the coursing river
(Be a man)
With all the force of a great typhoon
(Be a man)
With all the strength of a raging fire
Mysterious as the dark side of the moon

(Be a man)
We must be swift as the coursing river
(Be a man)
With all the force of a great typhoon
(Be a man)
With all the strength of a raging fire
Mysterious as the dark side of the moon

Reprise

(Be a Man)
You must be swift as the coursing river
(Be a Man)
With all the force of a great typhoon
(Be a Man)
With all the strength of a raging fire
Mysterious as the dark side of the moon
