You're Welcome

Charted: 65
  • 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! Writer/s: Lin-Manuel Miranda
