Moana: You’re Welcome

I really enjoyed this movie! We watched it for my little man’s birthday last year. I can’t wait for it to get on Netflix!!! All the songs are catchy but I especially love this song! Who knew that Dwayne Johnson could sing?! For whatever reason, this popped in my head last week and I kept watching the video on Youtube so now I have the song memorized from beginning to end! You can watch the Youtube video here.

Lyrics from “Moana”
Music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Opetaia Foa’i and Mark Mancina
Performed by Dwayne Johnson as Maui

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 that pulled up the sky
When you were waddling yay 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 the 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 can go on and on
I can 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 the 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 mini-Maui just tippity-tappin’

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

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

You’re welcome!
You’re welcome!
And thank you!
