Oh, tall is the tale of the mischievous one
Who fished out all the islands and captured the sun
His deeds and tasks I will unmask
So that you’ll understand
That before there was a Clark Kent
There was a Hawaiian Superman

He fished out all the islands with a magic hook
There would’ve been more but somebody looked
He pulled morning sky, the sun he entwined
To slow down his flight, so kapa could dry

[Chorus:]
Mischievous, marvelous, magical Maui
Hero of this land
The one, the only, the ultimate Hawaiian Supaman
Oh Maui, Maui, Maui, Hawaiian supaman
Oh Maui, Maui, Maui, Hawaiian supaman

The secret of fire was locked somewhere in time
So when the ahi died in the hale kuke, no way to re-ignite
So off he goes in search of those who hold the information
So that fire could be used by all the future generations

He found that alae held the fire connection
But his plan of deception fell short of perfection
With no other choice he had to get mean
So he squeezed alae’s throat until she screamed the secret
