We Know The Way is a song from the Disney animated feature Moana.

It was the first song written and composed for the film by Mark Mancina, Opetaia Foa’i, and Lin-Manuel Miranda. It serves as a celebration of voyaging, and the pride that comes with South Pacific natives being the world's first great navigators.

Lyrics

Tatou o tagata folau vala'auina
Le atua o le sami tele e o mai
O ava'e le lu'itau e lelei
Tapenapena

Aue, aue
Nuku i mua
Te manulele e tataki e
Aue, aue
Te fenua te malie
Nae ko hakilia kaiga e

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

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

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 malie
Nae ko hakilia
We know the way

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 its time to find home
We know the way

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
