"The Virginia Company" is the opening song and the first song of Disney's 1995 animated feature, Pocahontas. The song is sung again when John Smith and his crew sail on the Susan Consonant to explore the New World at Virginia before the opening credits song Steady as the Beating Drum.

Lyrics

Men:
In 1607
We sailed the open sea
For glory, God and gold
And the Virginia Company

For the New World is like heaven
And we'll all be rich and free
Or so we have been told
By the Virginia Company

So we have been told
By the Virginia Company

For glory, God and gold
And the Virginia Company

(knstrumental break)

On the beaches of Virginny
There's diamonds like debris
There's silver rivers flowin'
Gold you pick right off a tree
With a nugget for my Winnie
And another one for me
And all the rest'll go
To the Virginia Company

It's glory, God and gold
And the Virginia Company!

Men:
We'll kill ourselves an Injun
Or maybe two or three
We're stalwart men and bold
Of the Virginia Company

It's glory, God and gold
And the Virginia Company!
