History

Before First Curse
Planning to use the song inside of them to defeat the Evil Queen, Snow White and Prince Charming seek out the captain of the Jolly Roger in hopes of convincing him to take them to her castle. After Hook introduces himself, they offer him jewels in exchange for safe passage, but Hook begins to sing as he refuses, informing them that he couldn't care less about their jewels or station as prince and princess, as all he desires is revenge. When Snow White asks who he wants revenge on, he starts the second verse, revealing that his life was ruined by a crocodile. Although Snow White is confused on why he would want revenge on a reptile, she and Charming soon realize that he is actually referring to the Dark One, Rumplestiltskin, and inform Hook that they have him locked in their dungeon and offer to let him get his revenge if he will take them to the Evil Queen. Hook gladly accepts, telling his crew to finish their drinks before they leave and celebrating that fate has brought them back together. ("The Song in Your Heart")

The song is later extracted from Hook when the Evil Queen casts a Singing Spell and removes the music from the entire kingdom. However, this music is put inside of Snow White's unborn daughter's heart by the Blue Fairy to protect her from the Black Fairy and give her a happy ending. ("The Song in Your Heart")

After Third Curse
After her family is frozen by the Black Fairy and Mr. Gold, Emma Swan believes that the only way to save them is to give the Black Fairy her heart. As she prepares to do this, Henry Mills discovers a page from his book showing the Blue Fairy put the kingdom's songs in Emma's heart and rushes to her, revealing as the Black Fairy fails to crush Emma's heart that the songs give Emma power. Henry returns Emma's heart to her as she begins to sing, realizing that everyone she loves was with her throughout her life thanks to their song. ("The Song in Your Heart")

Lyrics

Hook
My dear prince and princess
Your offer is meaningless
Don't give a damn 
'bout your rank
The gold in your sack
Well it isn't worth jack
I should make you fools go walk the plank
Your riches would fill other pirates with glee
But none of those pirates are me
Pirates
They're not he!
Hook
Sing a yo ho
Keep your jewels divine
Hook & Pirates
Yo ho!
Hook
And your manners refined
'Cause even more precious than rum in a stein is
Revenge, revenge, revenge
And it's gonna be mine
Hook & Pirates
Revenge, revenge, revenge
Hook
Is gonna be mine

Snow White: Revenge? On whom?
Hook: Just wait for the second verse, love.


Hook
I've savaged and pillaged and pilfered each village
My conquests I'm justly proud of
Pirates
He's proud of!
Hook
Each town that I plunder I leave torn asunder
A pirate's life is one to love
Pirates
One to love!
Hook
And yet my heart's hardened as hard as a rock
Won't rest 'til I skin me a croc
Pirates
Gonna skin him a croc!
Hook
Sing a yo ho, you can beg,
Plead, and whine, but
Hook & Pirates
Yo ho!
Hook
You are wasting your time
That croc got my hand
Wanna tear out his spine
Revenge, revenge, revenge
Is gonna be mine
Hook & Pirates
Revenge, revenge, revenge
Hook
Is gonna be mine

Snow White: Wait, you want revenge on a crocodile for taking your hand?
Hook: Yeah, afraid he did more than that.


Hook
Once I sailed toward a horizon
Pirates
Horizon
Hook
Where I might find happiness waiting
Until that croc
Hook & Pirates
Destroyed my life
Hook
And filled me with hate unabating
Some say
Hook & Pirates
Let it go!
Hook
But I say
Hook & Pirates
Hell no!
Hook
I'm finally on the right path
Soon the Dark One will feel
Pirates
He will feel!
Hook
The fire of this pirate's wrath
Pirates
Feel the fire of his!
Feel the fire of his!

Snow White: Wait. Did you say the Dark One?
Prince Charming: I think I know why you can't find him. We have him. In our dungeon.
Hook: Bloody hell.
Snow White: Captain, if you give us safe passage to the Queen's castle, you've got yourself a crocodile.
Hook: Aye, love. You got a deal. Have one last drink, mates! Then we've got a date with destiny!


Hook & Pirates
Sing a yo ho
Hook
I'll slaughter the swine
Hook & Pirates
Yo ho!
Must be fate's design
Hook
At last our tales will again intertwine
Revenge, revenge, revenge
Is gonna be mine
Oh it's gonna be, oh it's gonna be
Oh it's gonna be mine
Oh it's gonna be, oh it's gonna be
Oh it's gonna be mine
Pirates




Revenge, revenge, revenge, it's gonna be
Revenge, revenge, revenge, it's gonna be
Revenge, revenge, revenge, it's gonna be
Revenge is gonna be

Trivia

On-Screen Notes

  • After Hook says, "We've got a date with destiny", Snow White can be seen touching her belly,[1] a subtle nod to the fact that her unborn daughter is Hook's future wife.
    • Also, the way Hook walks through the arch of swords raised by his fellow pirates is very similar to a tradition commonly used in military weddings. ("The Song in Your Heart")

Production Notes

  • While filming the part where Hook flips the chair, Colin O'Donoghue fractured his foot during a fall in an effort to save his face and a camera.[2] He then kept filming with a broken foot.[3] This happened on the last day of filming.[4]
