Lyrics Jemaine Clement – Shiny
Well, Tamatoa hasn’t always been this glam.
I was a drab little crab once.
Now I know I can be happy as a clam.
Because I’m beautiful baby.
Did your granny say, “Listen to your heart”?
“Be who you are on the inside”?
I need three words to tear her argument apart.
Your granny lied.(shiny)
I’d rather be shiny.
Like a treasure from a sunken pirate wreck.
Scrub the deck and make it look shiny.
I will sparkle like a wealthy woman’s neck.
Just a sec, don’t you know?
Fish are dumb, dumb, dumb.
They chase anything that glitters, beginners.
Oh, and here they come, come, come.
To the brightest thing that glitters.
Mmm, fish dinners.
I just love free food.
And you look like seafood.
Well, well, well.
Little Maui’s having trouble with his look.
You little semi-demi-mini-god.
Ouch! What a terrible performance.
Get the hook! (Get it?)
You don’t swing it like you used to, man.
Yet I have to give you credit for my start.
And your tattoos on the outside.
For just like you I made myself a work of art.
I’ll never hide, I can’t.
I’m too shiny.
Watch me dazzle like a diamond in the rough.
Strut my stuff, my stuff is so shiny.
Send your armies but they’ll never be enough.
My shell’s too tough, Maui man.
You could try, try, try.
But you can’t expect a demigod.
To beat a decapod (Look it up).
You will die, die, die.
Now it’s time for me to take apart..
Your aching heart.
Far from the ones who abandoned you.
Chasing the love of these humans.
Who made you feel wanted.
You try to be tough.
But your armour’s just not hard enough.
Maui! Now it’s time to kick your hiney.
Ever seen someone so.
Soak it in cause it’s the last you’ll ever see.
C’est la vie mon ami, I’m so shiny.
Now I’ll eat you so prepare your final plea.
Just for me.
