So here we are, three mages on a quest
Of course there's a fourth but as you might have guessed
He doesn't understand what it is to be a mage
But we're gonna tell you now, gonna open that cage
Gonna let you in, gonna turn that page
In the book that is the story of our lives
The glory of a Fantasy, a Final Fantasy
And if you wanna hear about it I'm the man to see

I am the red mage, I can do it all
Both kinds of magic and swordplay too, y'all
So many skills that it takes to be a hero
A jack of all trades but the master of zero
What am I great at? Nothin' I'm told
You see I always get the bronze but never the gold
Well, some day soon I hope to be the best
Just for a moment, better than the rest

Oh ho, my life is a tragic paradox, I said
Oh ho, I feel like a circle in a squarer box
Why am I afraid to pick a scepter or a blade?
I could focus on one, and son, I'd have it made
Until that day I'm just a man on a quest
But mark my words, I'm gonna be the best

Hey there, it's me, the team's only lady
I throw like a girl and I punch like a baby
So the guys in the party tend to take me for granted
This enchanted maid is a shade disenchanted
"I am your equal" What a silly notion
It's not about size, it's the motion in my potion
I don't ask much, just someone to say
"Hey, White Mage, good job today"

Maybe I don't have the strength to wield
An Elven sword or a Mythril shield
But my heart is strong, and my wand is too
So try to keep in mind, that without me you'd be so screwed

I'm the black mage, but I betcha knew that
Yellow eyes, my disguise, do you like my pointy hat?
I'm a master of the elements, but all that is irrelevant
I step into a room and I'm invariably the elephant
Not just a pyro, I'm also pretty smart
And the fire in my hands come directly from my heart
When push comes to shove, I want friends, I want love
I want a bride-to-be, family, all of the above
And I'll be damned if I fail, 'cause wouldn't that be tragic
If I let you judge me by the color of my magic?
And even if you're prejudiced, and wanna make a mess of this
You're gonna be incredulous, I'll show you what a legend is!

I'm just a lowly black mage
Relegated to the backstage
There's so much I wish you knew
So that maybe you'd see I'm just like you

Ooh, la, hem
