"Do it for Her" is a duet featured in "Sworn to the Sword". It is sung by Connie Maheswaran and Pearl while practicing sword fighting in the Ancient Sky Arena.

The lyrics revolve around Pearl describing her devotion to Rose Quartz and instilling the same devotion for Steven in Connie as she trains her in the art of sword-fighting.

This song is also available on Aivi & Surasshu's SoundCloud stream.

Lyrics

Pearl: All right. Everything begins with your stance. Remember:

You do it for him
And you would do it again
You do it for her, that is to say
You'll do it for him.
Keep your stance wide,
Keep your body lowered,
As you're moving forward
Bal-ance is the key
Right foot; left foot,
Now go even faster
And as you're moving backwards
Keep your eyes on me.
[Connie] Keep my stance wide, (Good)
Keep my body lowered, (Right)
As I'm moving forward (Concentrate!)
[Pearl] Don't you want him to live!?
[Connie] Right foot; left foot
[Pearl] Yes, but put your whole body into it!
Everything you have, everything you are
You've got to give–
On the battlefield
When everything is chaos,
And you have nothing but the way you feel, your strategy and a sword;
You just think about the life you'll have together after the war!
And then you do it for her,
That's how you know you can win,
You do it for her, that is to say
You'll do it for him.
Deep down you know
You weren't built for fighting,
But that doesn't mean
You're not prepared to try.
What they don't know
Is your real advantage,
When you live for someone
You're prepared to die.
[Connie] Deep down I know
That I'm just a human (True)
[Connie] But I know that I can draw my sword and fight
(But you know that you can draw your sword and fight)
With my short existence, (Good)
I can make a difference, (Yes, excellent!)
I can be there for him
I can be his knight
I can do it for him,
[Both] You'd do it for her
[Pearl] Okay, now do that again (Yes, ma'am.)
You do it for her, and now you say:

[Connie] I'll do it for him.

Demo Version

"The Demo for “Do it for Her”

I don’t know if I’ve ever had more fun writing a song! I hit up Crewniverse layout artist Emily Walus for sword fighting info, because she’d taken saber fencing lessons! She showed me a few moves, and tips about stance, which I worked loosely into the song." [1]

Trivia

  • This is Connie's second song (and duet) in the series, the first being "The Jam Song" with Steven.
    • Both of these duets are sung in the same episode.
  • This is Pearl's second song (and duet) in the series, the first being "Strong in the Real Way" with Steven.
  • At 2 minutes and 15 seconds, this is the third longest song in the series, after "What Can I Do" and "Stronger Than You".
  • Pearl's flashback shows a pre-regeneration version of her that is not seen when she regenerates in "Steven the Sword Fighter".
