“An Innocent Warrior”

Ou loto mamaina toa

Taku pelepele

Ou mata e matagi

English

Your eyes so full of wonder
Your heart an innocent warrior
There’s a task for you
My dearest one

Let it flow over you
This freedom you feel
And your deep thoughts
Our young girl

You have come
Our young girl

Your eyes so full of wonder

“Where You Are”

[Chief Tui]: Moana, make way, make way!
Moana, it’s time you knew
The village of Motunui is
All you need

The dancers are practising
They dance to an ancient song
(Who needs a new song? This old one’s all we need)

This tradition is our mission
And Moana, there’s so much to do
(Make way!)
Don’t trip on the taro root
That’s all you need

We share everything we make
(We make)
We joke and we weave our baskets
(Aha!)
The fishermen come back from the sea

[Moana]: I wanna see

[Chief Tui]: Don’t walk away
Moana, stay on the ground now
Our people will need a chief
And there you are

[Chief Tui and Sina]: There comes a day
When you’re gonna look around
And realize happiness is
Where you are

[Chief Tui]: Consider the coconut
(The what?)
Consider its tree
We use each part of the coconut
That’s all we need

[Sina]: We make our nets from the fibers
(We make our nets from the fibers)
The water is sweet inside
(The water is sweet inside)
We use the leaves to build fires
(We use the leaves to build fires)
We cook up the meat inside
(We cook up the meat inside)

[Chief Tui]: Consider the coconuts
(Consider the coconuts)
The trunks and the leaves
(Ha!)
The island gives us what we need

[Moana]: And no one leaves

[Chief Tui]: That’s right, we stay
We’re safe and we’re well provided
And when we look to the future
There you are

You’ll be okay
In time you’ll learn just as I did
[Chief Tui and Sina]: You must find happiness right
Where you are

[Gramma Tala]: I like to dance with the water
The undertow and the waves
The water is mischievous
Ha! I like how it misbehaves

The village may think I’m crazy
Or say that I drift too far
But once you know what you like, well
There you are

You are your father’s daughter
Stubbornness and pride
Mind what he says but remember
You may hear a voice inside
And if the voice starts to whisper
To follow the farthest star
Moana, that voice inside is
Who you are

[Villagers]: We make our nets from the fibers
(We weave our nets from the fibers)
The water is sweet inside
(A real tasty treat inside)
We use the leaves to build fires
(We sing these songs in our choir)
We cook up the meat inside
(We have mouths to feed inside)

[Chief Tui]: The village believes in us
(That’s right!)
The village believes
(Ha!)
The island gives us what we need
And no one leaves

[Moana]: So here I’ll stay
My home, my people beside me
And when I think of tomorrow
There we are

I’ll lead the way
I’ll have my people to guide me
We’ll build our future together
[Villagers]: Where we are

[Moana]: ‘Cause every path leads you back to
[Villagers]: Where you are
[Moana]: You can find happiness right
[Villagers]: Where you are
Where you are

“How Far I’ll Go”

I’ve been staring at the edge of the water
Long as I can remember
Never really knowing why
I wish I could be the perfect daughter
But I come back to the water
No matter how hard I try

Every turn I take, every trail I track
Every path I make, every road leads back
To the place I know, where I cannot go
Where I long to be

See the line where the sky meets the sea?
It calls me
And no one knows how far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I’ll know
If I go there’s just no telling how far I’ll go

I know everybody on this island seems so happy on this island
Everything is by design
I know everybody on this island has a role on this island
So maybe I can roll with mine

I can lead with pride, I can make us strong
I’ll be satisfied if I play along
But the voice inside sings a different song
What is wrong with me?

See the light as it shines on the sea?
It’s blinding
But no one knows how deep it goes
And it seems like it’s calling out to me, so come find me
And let me know
What’s beyond that line, will I cross that line?

See the line where the sky meets the sea?
It calls me
And no one knows how far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I’ll know, how far I’ll go

“You’re Welcome”

Okay, okay, I see what’s happening here
You’re face to face with greatness, and it’s strange
You don’t even know how you feel
It’s adorable
Well, it’s nice to see that humans never change

Open your eyes, let’s begin
Yes, it’s really me, it’s Maui
Breathe it in
I know it’s a lot
The hair, the bod
When you’re staring at a demi-god

What can I say except, “You’re welcome”
For the tides, the sun, the sky
Hey, it’s okay, it’s okay
You’re welcome
I’m just an ordinary demi-guy

Hey
What has two thumbs and pulled up the sky
When you were waddling yea high?
This guy
When the nights got cold
Who stole you fire from down below?
You’re lookin’ at him, yo
Oh, also I lassoed the sun
You’re welcome
To stretch your days and bring you fun
Also I harnessed the breeze
You’re welcome
To fill your sails and shake your trees

So what can I say except you’re welcome
For the islands I pulled from the sea
There’s no need to pray, it’s okay
You’re welcome
Ha, I guess it’s just my way of being me
You’re welcome
You’re welcome

Well, come to think of it
Kid, honestly I could go on and on
I could explain every natural phenomenon
The tide, the grass, the ground
Oh, that was Maui just messing around
I killed an eel
I buried its guts
Sprouted a tree, now you got coconuts
What’s the lesson?
What is the take-away?
Don’t mess with Maui when he’s on a break-away
And the tapestry here on my skin
Is a map of the victories I win
Look where I’ve been
I make everything happen
Look at that mean mini-Maui just tickety-tappin’
(Ha ha ha ha ha ha, hey)

Well, anyway let me say, “You’re welcome” (you’re welcome)
For the wonderful world you know
Hey, it’s okay, it’s okay, you’re welcome (you’re welcome)
Well, come to think of it, I gotta go (hey)

Hey, it’s your day to say, “You’re welcome” (you’re welcome)
‘Cause I’m gonna need that boat
I’m sailing away, away, you’re welcome (you’re welcome)
‘Cause Maui can do anything but float

You’re welcome
(You’re welcome)
You’re welcome
And thank you

“Shiny”

Well, Tamatoa hasn’t always been this glam
I was a drab little crab once
Now I know I can be happy as a clam
Because I’m beautiful, baby

Did your granny say listen to your heart
Be who you are on the inside
I need three words to tear her argument apart
Your granny lied
I’d rather be

Shiny
Like a treasure from a sunken pirate wreck
Scrub the deck and make it look

Shiny
I will sparkle like a wealthy woman’s neck
Just a sec

Don’t you know
Fish are dumb, dumb, dumb
They chase anything that glitters (beginners)

Oh, and here they come, come, come
To the brightest thing that glitters
Mmm, fish dinners

I just love free food (free food)
And you look like seafood (seafood)

Well, well, well
Little Maui’s having trouble with his look
You little semi-demi-mini-god
Ouch! What a terrible performance
Get the hook (get it?)
You don’t swing it like you used to, man

Yet I have to give you credit for my start
And your tattoos on the outside
For just like you I made myself a work of art
I’ll never hide, I can’t, I’m too

Shiny
Watch me dazzle like a diamond in the rough
Strut my stuff, my stuff is so

Shiny
Send your armies but they’ll never be enough
My shell’s too tough

Maui man, you could try, try, try
But you can’t expect a demi-god
To beat a decapod (look it up)

You will die, die, die
Now it’s time for me to take apart
Your aching heart

Far from the ones who abandoned you
Chasing the love of these humans
Who made you feel wanted
You tried to be tough
But your armour’s just not hard enough

Maui
Now it’s time to kick your
Hiney
Ever seen someone so

Shiny
Soak it in ’cause it’s the last you’ll ever see
C’est la vie mon ami
I’m so

Shiny
Now I’ll eat you, so prepare your final plea
Just for me
You’ll never be quite as shiny
You wish you were nice and
Shiny

“I Am Moana (Song of the Ancestors)”

[Gramma Tala:] I know a girl from an island
She stands apart from the crowd
She loves the sea and her people
She makes her whole family proud

Sometimes the world seems against you
The journey may leave a scar
But scars can heal and reveal just
Where you are

The people you love will change you
The things you have learned will guide you
And nothing on Earth can silence
The quiet voice still inside you
And when that voice starts to whisper
Moana, you’ve come so far
Moana, listen
Do you know who you are?

[Moana:] Who am I?
I am the girl who loves my island
I’m the girl who loves the sea
It calls me

RELATED:

How Old Are Moana, Maui, Tala & Others in ‘Moana’?

I am the daughter of the village chief
We are descended from voyagers
Who found their way across the world
They call me

I’ve delivered us to where we are
I have journeyed farther
I am everything I’ve learned and more
Still it calls me

And the call isn’t out there at all
It’s inside me
It’s like the tide, always falling and rising
I will carry you here in my heart
You remind me
That come what may, I know the way
I am Moana!

“Know Who You Are”

Samoan

(Ou mata e matagi)
I have crossed the horizon to find you
(Ou loto mamaina toa)
I know your name
(Manatu atu)
They have stolen the heart from inside you
(Taku pelepele)
But this does not define you
(Manatu atu)
This is not who you are
You know who you are

English

(Your eyes so full of wonder)
I have crossed the horizon to find you
(Your heart an innocent warrior)
I know your name
(There’s a task for you)
They have stolen the heart from inside you
(My dearest one)
But this does not define you
(There’s a task for you)
This is not who you are
You know who you are

“We Know the Way (Finale)”

Tatou o tagata folau vala’auina
Le atua o le sami tele e o mai

We read the wind and the sky when the sun is high
We sail the length of the seas on the ocean breeze
At night, we name every star
We know where we are
We know who we are, who we are

Aue, aue
We set a course to find
A brand new Island everywhere we roam
Aue, aue
We keep our Island in our mind
And when it’s time to find home
We know the way

Aue, aue
We are explorers reading every sign
We tell the stories of our elders in a never-ending chain
Aue, aue
Te fenua, te malie
Nae ko hakilia
We know the way.

We are voyagers summoned by the mighty gods,
Of this mighty ocean to come,
We take up the good challenge,
Get ready.

Aue, aue
There is land up ahead,
A bird in flight to take us there,
Oh! oh!
This beautiful land,
The place I was looking for, we will make our home.

We read the wind and the sky
When the sun is high
We sail the length of sea
On the ocean breeze
At night we name every star
We know where we are
We know who we are, who we are

Away! Away!
We set a course to find
A brand new island everywhere we roam,
Away! Away!
We keep our island in our mind
And when it’s time to find home,
We know the way.

Away! Away!
We are explorers reading every sign
We tell the stories of our elders
In a never-ending chain,
Oh! Oh!
This beautiful land,
The place I was looking for,
We know the way.

We tell the stories of our elders
In the never ending chain,

The place I was looking for,
We know the way.
