The Steel Samurai Theme Song (Path To Glory) is the opening to Act II. As the name states, it's the theme song to "The Steel Samurai"; a popular children's television series. Maya is a diehard fan of the series, though Phoenix is baffled by its popularity. In the musical, Phoenix and Maya talk over the majority of the song.


The song is purposely written to sound like a poorly translated opening to an anime or Asian drama. However, the first couple stanzas were actually taken from the song The Samurai Always Wins, which was written first despite the fact that it features chrolonologically later. Thus, the first couple stanzas have better rhythm and wording, and don't sound as humorously stilted as the rest of the song.

Lyrics


EVIL MAGISTRATE: [spoken]
Hurha! You, the Steel Samurai, have disgraced me for the last time.
The moon, pale in the sky, cries out for vengeance.

   

STEEL SAMURAI: Cries for vengeance? No, the pale moon cries for you! For it knows, this will be the last you see of it! 
See you in hell, EVIL MAGISTRATE!

   

BOTH: Whhhooooooo! Grrraaaaaaaah!

   

ANNOUNCER: The warrior’s swords gleam and strike in the glow of the moon. One has fallen...but who? Only the pale moon knows... 
...And you can too! Stay tuned for the next exciting episode: “The Dark Messenger Returns!”

   

MANELLA: [sung]
When the moon is bright
With a pale, blue light
And trouble is nearby, 

   

MANELLA/PENNY/OLDBAG: Only one man fights
For what is right,
The Steel Samurai!

   

MANELLA: And all heroes know
When it's time to go
And face their destined fate,
For who should show
But his deadly foe 

   

MANELLA/PENNY/OLDBAG: The Evil Magistrate!
The Samurai will always fight for Justice that is Great!

   

MANELLA: Princess Yume-Hime
The future, her dreams know
Captured by evil
Save her--

   

MANELLA/PENNY/OLDBAG: GO! GO! GO!

   

MANELLA: When the villains come
And innocents run,
He enters all aglow

   

EVIL MAGISTRATE: FIGHT ME!

   

MANELLA/PENNY/OLDBAG: He fights alone
To defend his home,
Neo Olde Tokyo

   

STEEL SAMURAI: Hut!

   

MANELLA: 'Cause he'll really break
The Magistrate
And make it all turn great

   

EVIL MAGISTRATE: HOO! HUH!

   

MANELLA: 'Cause the Samurai's shown
He's always known

   

MANELLA/PENNY/OLDBAG: The villain's ultimate fate!

   

STEEL SAMURAI: Woooooooah...!

   

MANELLA: He fights for truth

   

MANELLA/PENNY/OLDBAG: And the bad guys can't escape!

   

PENNY: [spoken]
Please watch The Steel Samurai in a well lighted area,
As far back from the television set as possible.

   

ANNOUNCER: Brought to you by...

   

VASQUEZ: Global Studios - Fantasy is our business.

   

STEEL SAMURAI: And remember, kids! Winners don't do drugs!
