Moana, make way, make way
Moana, it's time you knew
The village of Motunui is all you need
The dancers are practicing
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 (ah-ha!)
The fishermen come back from the sea
I wanna see
Don't walk away
Moana, stay on the ground now
Our people will need a chief, and there you are
There comes a day
When you're gonna look around
And realize happiness is where you are
Consider the coconut (the what?)
Consider its tree
We use each part of the coconut, that's all we need
We make our nets from the fibers
The water is sweet inside
We use the leaves to build fires
We cook up the meat inside
Consider the coconuts
The trunks and the leaves (ha!)
The island gives us what we need
And no one leaves
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
You must find happiness right where you are
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
We make our nets from the fibers
The water is sweet inside
We use the leaves to build fires
And cook up the meat inside
The village believes in us (ha, that's right!)
The village believes (ha!)
The island gives us what we need
And no one leaves
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 where we are
'Cause every path leads you back to where you are
You can find happiness right where you are
Where you are
