    Let's go

    This is our home
    We've got every generation
    So full of music
    A rhythm of its own design
    This is my family
    A perfect constellation
    So many stars and everybody gets to shine

    But let's be clear, Abuela runs this show, whoa
    She led us here so many years ago, whoa
    And every year our family blessings grow
    There's just a lot you've simply got to know, so

    Welcome to the Family Madrigal
    The home of the Family Madrigal (we're on our way)
    Where all the people are fantastical and magical
    I'm part of the Family Madrigal

    Oh my gosh, it's them
    What are the gifts? (I can't remember all the gifts!)
    But I don't know who is who

    Alright, alright, relax

    It is physically impossible to relax
    Tell us everything, what are your powers?
    Just tell us what everyone can do

    And that's why coffee's for grown-ups

    My tía Pepa
    Her mood affects the weather
    When she's unhappy
    Well, the temperature gets weird
    My tío Bruno

    We don't talk about Bruno

    They say he saw the future, one day he disappeared
    Oh! And that's my mom Julieta, here's her deal, whoa
    The truth is, she can heal you with a meal, whoa
    Her recipes are remedies for real
    If you're impressed, imagine how I feel, Mom!

    Welcome to the Family Madrigal
    The home of the Family Madrigal
    (Hey, coming through)
    I know it sounds a bit fantastical and magical
    But I'm part of the Family Madrigal

    Two guys fell in love with Family Madrigal
    And now they're part of the Family Madrigal

    So yeah, Tío Félix married Pepa
    And my dad married Julieta
    That's how Abuela became an Abuela Madrigal
    (Let's go, let's go!)

    We swear to always
    Help those around us
    And earn the miracle
    That somehow found us
    The town keeps growing
    The world keeps turning
    But work and dedication will keep the miracle burning
    And each new generation must keep the miracle burning

    Wait, who's a sister and who's a cousin?
    There's so many people
    How do you keep them all straight?

    Okay, okay, okay, okay
    So many kids in our house
    So, let's turn the sound up, you know why?
    I think it's time for a grandkid round up
    (Grandkid round up)

    Cousin Dolores can hear a pin drop
    Camilo shapeshifts
    Antonio gets his gift today
    My older sisters
    Isabela and Luisa
    One strong, one graceful
    Perfect in every way

    Grows a flower, the town goes wild
    She's a perfect golden child
    (Luisa! Luisa! Luisa! Luisa!)
    And Luisa's super strong
    The beauty and the brawn do no wrong

    That's life in the Family Madrigal (whoa)
    Now you know the Family Madrigal (whoa)
    Where all the people are fantastical and magical (whoa)
    That's who we are in the Family Madrigal, adiós!

    Ooh (but what's your gift?)

    Well, I gotta go, the life of a Madrigal (whoa)
    But now you all know the Family Madrigal (whoa)
    I never meant this to get autobiographical (whoa)
    So just to review the Family Madrigal
    Let's go

    It starts with Abuela
    And then Tía Pepa, she handles the weather (but what about Mirabel?)
    My mom Julieta can make you feel better with just one arepa (but what about Mirabel?)
    My dad Agustín, well
    He's accident-prone but he means well (but what about Mirabel?)
    Hey, you said you wanna know what everyone does
    I got sisters and cousins and (Mirabel)
    My primo Camilo won't stop until he makes you smile today (Mirabel)
    My cousin Dolores can hear this whole chorus a mile away (Mirabel)

    Look, it's Mister Mariano, hey
    You can marry my sister if you wanna but (Mirabel)
    Between you and me, she's kind of a prima donna
    Yo, I've said too much and thank you but I really gotta go (Mirabel)

    My family's amazing (Mirabel)
    And I'm in my family, so (Mirabel)
