Singing in the Courtroom

Chapter Text

"Make A (Free) Man out Of You"
(Sung to the tune of "Make A Man Out Of You:"
from Disney's "Mulan" soundtrack)

 

Let's get down defending
To defeat the charge
Don't you fret dear client, the trial's just begun
Things may seem so hopeless now,
But you can bet before we're through
Defendant I'll make a free man…out of you


The testimony's bogus
These charges are paper thin
Once I break that witness
We are sure to win
Payne's a spineless, wimp, pathetic snot
And he's never had a clue
I swear I'll make a free man out of you


I'll never stop pursuing the truth
Say goodbye to these lies against you
Just ignore that pompous tool, and his smarmy grin
I'll fight until my dying breath
Hope Udgey doesn't see right through me
Good thing I can stall and bluff on a whim!


[Chorus:]

(Objection!)
I must be strong, freedom I must deliver
(Objection!)
Lady Justice shall prevail real soon
(Objection!)
With all the blaze of a Phoenix fire
With this new evidence, there's no way we can lose!


Sweat drips down my brow now, till verdict arrives
Heed late mentor's orders and I might survive
You're unsuited for those prison stripes
So chin up, smile on, we're through
Cuz you believed, I'd make a free man out of you


[Chorus:]

(Objection!)
I must be strong, freedom I must deliver
(Objection!)
Lady Justice shall prevail real soon
(Objection!)
With all the blaze of a Phoenix fire
With this new evidence, there's no way we can lose!


[Chorus:]

(Objection!)
I must be strong, freedom I must deliver
(Objection!)
Lady Justice shall prevail real soon
(Objection!)
With all the blaze of a Phoenix fire
With this new evidence, there's no way we can lose!
