Tamatoa holding Moana

"Shiny" is a song from Disney's animated feature Moana. It is sung by Tamatoa as he arrogantly flaunts, what he believe to be, his most beautiful qualities, particularly his most shiny shell.


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

I'd rather be shiny

Like a treasure from a sunken pirate wreck

Scrub the deck and make it look


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


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


Watch me dazzle like a diamond in the rough

Strut my stuff, my stuff is so


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 tried to be tough

But your armour's just not hard enough


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


Now I'll eat you so prepare your final plea

Just for me

You'll never be quite as shiny

You wish you were nice and shiny
