You're Welcome

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!

The Script - Superheroes

All her life she has seen
All the meanest side of me
They took away the prophet's dream for a profit on the street

Now she's stronger than you know
A heart of steel starts to grow

All his life he's been told
He'll be nothing when he's old
All the kicks and all the blows
He won't ever let it show

'Cause he's stronger than you know
A heart of steel starts to grow

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been struggling to make things right
That's how a superhero learns to fly
(Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power)

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been working every day and night
That's how a superhero learns to fly
(Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power)

All the hurt, all the lies
All the tears that they cry
When the moment is just right
You see fire in their eyes

'Cause he's stronger than you know
A heart of steel starts to grow

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been struggling to make things right
That's how a superhero learns to fly
(Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power)

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been working every day and night
That's how a superhero learns to fly
(Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power)

(Power, power, power, power, power)
(Power, power, power, power, power)
Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power
(Power, power, power, power, power)
(Power, power, power, power, power)
Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power

She's got lions in her heart
A fire in her soul
He's got a beast in his belly
That's so hard to control
'Cause they've taken too much hits
Taking blow by blow
Now light a match, stand back, watch them explode

She's got lions in her heart
A fire in her soul
He's got a beast in his belly
That's so hard to control
'Cause they've taken too much hits
Taking blow by blow
Now light a match, stand back, watch them explode, explode, explode, explode

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been struggling to make things right
That's how a superhero learns to fly
(Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power)

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been working every day and night
That's how a superhero learns to fly
(Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power)

(Power, power, power, power, power)
Oh, yeah...
(Power, power, power, power, power)
Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power
(Power, power, power, power, power)
Ooh, yeah
Whoa
(Power, power, power, power, power)
Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power

When you've been fighting for it all your life
You've been struggling to make things right
That's how a superhero learns to fly
