Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Moana, make way, make way!
Moana, it's time you knew
The village of Motunui is
All you need
Verse 2
The dancers are practising
They dance to an ancient song
(Who needs a new song? This old one's all we need)
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
We share everything we make (we make)
We joke and we weave our baskets (aha!)
The fishermen come back from the sea
Verse 5
I wanna see
Verse 6
Don't walk away
Moana, stay on the ground now
Our people will need a chief
And there you are
Verse 7
There comes a day
When you're gonna look around
And realize happiness is
Where you are
Verse 8
Consider the coconut (the what?)
Consider its tree
We use each part of the coconut
That's all we need
Verse 9
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)
Verse 10
Consider the coconuts (consider the coconuts)
The trunks and the leaves (ha!)
The island gives us what we need
Verse 11
And no one leaves
Verse 12
That's right, we stay
We're safe and we're well provided
And when we look to the future
There you are
Verse 13
You'll be okay
In time you'll learn just as I did
You must find happiness right
Where you are
Verse 14
I like to dance with the water
The undertow and the waves
The water is mischievous (ha!)
I like how it misbehaves
Verse 15
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
Verse 16
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
Verse 17
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)
Verse 18
The village believes in us (that's right!)
The village believes (ha!)
The island gives us what we need
And no one leaves
Verse 19
So here I'll stay
My home, my people beside me
And when I think of tomorrow
There we are
Verse 20
I'll lead the way
I'll have my people to guide me
We'll build our future together
Where we are
Verse 21
'Cause every path leads you back to
Where you are
You can find happiness right -
Where you are
Where you are
