Listen and memorize these fresh Disney hits : Hypable (2023)

Disney’s animated musical Moana has a ton of great new Disney songs, so you surely want to listen to them over and over again while reading the lyrics. We’ve got you covered!

Moana’s songs were co-written by Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda alongside Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foa’i. The music is coupled with a wonderful story (Read our Moana review!), so we think the animated movie is an instant Disney classic.

Like Frozen, there are several catchy tunes we’ll be humming in our heads for months and years to come. Here are the best Moana songs and their lyrics!

‘Moana’ lyrics: Read and memorize ’em

‘Moana’ song: ‘We Know the Way’

Moana “We Know the Way” lyrics:

Tatou o tagata folau vala’auina
E le atua o le sami tele e o mai
La ava’e le lu’itau e lelei

Aue, aue
Nuku i mua
Te manulele e tataki iei
Aue, aue
Te fenua te malie
Nae ko hakilia kaiga e

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

‘Moana’ song: ‘How Far I’ll Go’

Moana “How Far I’ll Go” lyrics (first version):

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 can not 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?

(Video) Disney Music - Lava (Official Lyric Video from "Lava")

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

Moana song: ‘Where You Are’

Moana “Where You Are” lyrics

[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
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
The island gives us what we need

[Moana]: And no one leaves

(Video) Sarah Jeffery, Jadah Marie - Audrey's Christmas Rewind

[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
(And we taste the sweet 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
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

‘Moana’ song: ‘You’re Welcome’

Bonus: Here’s an alternate version performed by Jordan Fisher and Lin-Manuel Miranda!

Moana “You’re Welcome” lyrics

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

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!

(Video) Night Falls (From "Descendants 3")

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!

‘Moana’ song: ‘Shiny’

Moana “Shiny” Lyrics

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
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

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

I just love free food
And you look like 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

Watch me dazzle like a diamond in the rough
Strut my stuff, my stuff is so
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 demigod
To beat a decapod, give 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

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

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

(Video) Disney Channel Stars - Legendary (performed by Disney Channel Stars)

“I Am Moana” lyrics:

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?

Who am I?
I am a girl who loves my island
I’m the girl who loves the sea
It calls me

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’ll remind me
That come what may
I know the way
I am Moana!

‘Moana’ song ‘Know Who You Are’ lyrics

Moana “Know Who You Are” lyrics:

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

This is not who you are
You know who you are
