"We Know the Way" from Disney's MOANA - Lyrics (Plus a Song Cover)

Moana is a 2016 3D Animation musical adventure movie produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. It follows a spirited teenager named Moana as she journeys beyond the reef (across the Pacific Ocean) to save her people.

The film is directed by John Musker and Ron Clements, renowned for their directorial work on The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and The Princess and the Frog.

"We Know The Way" is performed by Opetaia Foa'i of Oceanic music group Te Vaka and Tony award winning artist Lin-Manuel Miranda

Here's a song cover video of We Know the Way sung by Harlem Jude Ferolino (me, haha).


[Intro: Opetaia Foa'i]                                       
Tatou o tagata folau e vala’auina                
E le atua o le sami tele e o mai                    
Ia ava’e le lu’itau e lelei                                

[Hook 1: Chorus, Opetaia Foa'i]
Aue, aue                                                         
Nuku i mua                                                    
Te manulele e tataki e                                  
Aue, aue                                                          
Te fenua, te mālie                                         

Nae ko hakilia mo kaiga e                          
[Verse 1: Lin-Manuel Miranda]
We read the wind and the sky when the sun is high
We sail the length of the seas on the ocean breeze
At night, we name every star
We know where we are
We know who we are, who we are

[Hook 2: Chorus, Lin-Manuel Miranda]
Aue, aue
We set a course to find
A brand new island everywhere we roam
Aue, aue
We keep our island in our mind
And when it's time to find home
We know the way

[Hook 3: Chorus, Lin-Miranda Miranda]
Aue, aue
We are explorers reading every sign
We tell the stories of our elders in a never-ending chain
Aue, aue
Te fenua, te mālie
Nā heko hakilia
We know the way
