Ok, ok, 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!
