We Know the Way – Phonetic Lyrics – Moana
Thank you Opetaia Foa’i for this fantastic song. It is my favorite from the Moana sound track.
I wanted to learn this song, yet the official lyrics are in Samoan, Tokelauan, and English (I think). Since I only speak English, I created these phonetic lyrics.
I slowed the music to 70% normal speed and listened over and over again. Note, we might not have all the phonemes in English.
Oo-ah-pah el-lay-lu-ah toa-le-eh
Oh-loh oh-loh tah-kah
Te mah new lay lay A ta key A
Nah echo hockey lee-ah
One of my hobbies is improv, and I play a game where we get our partner to guess multi-syllabic words by acting out each phoneme.
