Villains singing "Twisted"

In this title song, Ja'Far realizes that his efforts to do good will never be seen as such. He finds himself in a lose-lose situation, where he will be seen as a villain no matter what he does or how good his intentions. Upon this realization, he is confronted with other Disney villains whose stories have been "twisted."

Ja'Far: I've gone against my Sultan

The highest act of treason

But I had good intentions

I did it for a reason

They'll kill me if I'm lucky

They'll torture me if not

The villains

What made me think that I could get away with such a plot?

It's not too late to bring it back

Perhaps I'll be forgiven

But if my crime can help improve the world we all must live in

Am I not bound by duty to the people of this nation?

How does the Golden Rule apply in such a situation?

As a citizen I think I would be grateful for the aid

But if I were the Sultan, I should hate to be betrayed

Whichever road I take'll only encourage someone's wrath

'Til now I've always traveled down the straight and narrow path

Temptation may have beckoned, but I always have resisted

But which way do I turn when the roads become so... so...

Ursula [Spoken]: Twisted?

Ja'Far [Spoken]: Who are you?

Ursula [Spoken]: A fellow traveler down a twisted path

Ja'Far [Spoken]: I know you from Sherrezade's stories!

Ursula [Spoken]: Uh-uh-uh. You think you know me, as others think they know you, but there are two sides to every story.

Ursula: I used to be the ruler of the ocean

I was benevolent and always kept my word

But my brother held the antiquated notion

That women should be seen and never heard

So he dethroned me and disowned me and on top of that rezoned me 

To the outskirts of the kingdom in a cave

Took my scepter and my crown

Though I tried to take him down

The truth and I now share a watery grave

The story lingers on

But the version that is drawn is twisted

Scar [Spoken]: A pain I know all too well

Scar: The pride had never seen a more progressive king than me

Both lion and hyena lived in perfect harmony

I brought an end to what had been a senseless age-old feud

I was prepared for anything except for what ensued

My brother ate my heirs - my precious cubs! - and stole my throne

Returned to segregation and the hateful ways we'd known

Though I'd advocate for unity, I always was denounced

So when I saw an opportunity to right the wrong - 

I pounced!

The pride came before my fall in a fate that one might call -

Well, twisted

Scar [Spoken]: They weren't ready for my ideas

Ursula [Spoken]: No, they didn't hate you because of your ideas. They hated you because of that evil-looking scar on your face. Fortune favors the beautiful.

Gaston [Spoken]: Au contraire! My only crime was love. In town there was only she who was as beautiful as me - on the inside. But then, tragedy struck. She was taken hostage in a castle filled with demonic furniture. So I did what anyone would do and I organized a rescue mission. But how was I to know that she had fallen in love with her captor? To me, that doesn't seem entirely healthy, especially since he's a wolf-bear thing. A buffalo monster. In a cape. But the heart wants what it wants - 

Gaston: And sometimes what it wants is twisted

Ursula, Gaston, Scar: Twisted, Twisted...

Ursula [Spoken]: I only wanted to reclaim what was mine!

Scar [Spoken]: I only wished for equal rights for all!

Gaston [Spoken]: I only wished to save her!

Maleficent [Spoken]: I only wished to be invited to the party

Scar [Spoken]: I only wished to improve relations between the races

Captain Hook [Spoken]: I only wished to teach the boy responsibility

Ursula [Spoken]: I only wished to give the people a voice

Captain Hook [Spoken]: So he wouldn't end up like me

Gaston [Spoken]: I only wished to love her

Ursula [Spoken]: To help the miserable, lonely, and depressed

Maleficent [Spoken]: To be included

Scar [Spoken]: To live in harmony!

Maleficent [Spoken]: For once!

Captain Hook [Spoken]: I never knew my father!

All [Frenzied]: I only wished! I only wished! I only wished!.....

Cruela De Vil [Spoken]: I only wished to have a coat made out of puppies!

All: [Cluttered Speech] - Maleficent: Just leave! Ja'Far: Why would you do that? Scar: That's insane! Captain hook: Get out!

Ursula [Spoken] It's an unfortunate situation, but you do have a choice

Ja'Far: What remains of a man when that man is dead and gone?

Only memories and stories of his deeds will linger on

But if a man's accomplishments aren't in the tale they tell

Are the deeds that go unheralded his legacy as well?

If a war breaks out tomorrow, we'll all have hell to pay

Why protect my reputation? I'm a dead man either way

How will they tell my story?

How will they tell my tale?

Will anybody even care?

The question then is whether 'tis nobler in the mind to be well-liked but ineffectual, or moral but maligned

I'll never be a hero who all the citizens adore

But if I hide to save my life, what has my life been for?

What has my life been for?

The road ahead may twist

But I will never swerve

I'll give them all the unsung antihero they deserve

I've nothing left to lose 

So the only path to choose is twisted

Let them twist my words, let the people scorn me

Who cares if no one will ever mourn me?

Let them bury the side of the story they'll never learn

Let the truth be twisted

Let my life be twisted

I'll be twisted, it's my time
