Scots Disney fans will never look at the Moana the same after rude sounding lyrics from the innocent cartoon went viral.
The sweet 2016 cartoon based on stories from Polynesian mythology tells the story of the strong-willed daughter of a chief of a Polynesian village, who is chosen by the ocean itself to reunite a mystical relic with the goddess Te Fiti.
When a blight strikes her island, Moana sets sail in search of Maui, a legendary demigod, in the hope of returning the relic to Te Fiti and saving her people.
Up until now, it’s always been viewed as a lovely family friendly tale with lots of fantastic music and brilliant animation.
However, Scots fans who listen again to the soundtrack may never be able to listen to the music or view the film in the same way, after one Twitter user pointed out how he heard the climatic verse to the song I Am Moana (Song Of the Ancestors).
Putting up a clip of the song online, theatre director Dean Johnsson remarked: “I can’t be the only person who hears “It’s like the tide is always f***ing rising” in a Scottish accent here?
Unfortunately, it wasn’t just his ears who fooled him and amongst those who agreed were Britain’s Got Talent’s Jai McDowall, star of Movies to Musicals and a great lover of musicals himself, and ITN reporter Alan Jenkins.
Jai said: “I can’t unhear that.”
Other agreed saying: “And now I will never Unhear it – and I’m delighted for it. Thank you.”
And another said: “I’ve always heard it like that.”
Alan Jenkins told one of his friends: “Can’t wait for your piano cover over on TikTok.”
Jamie Lambert of Collabro fame also found it hilarious while others said: “This has proper tickled me!”
Another ventured: “Moana’s people were voyagers so this makes perfect sense.”
The actual lyric to the song is written as: “It’s like the tide, Always falling and rising.”
We’ve checked out singer Auliʻi Cravalho who is of mixed Puerto Rican, Portuguese, Chinese, and Irish descent, just in case she was feeling naughty on the day of recording , but she was only fourteen when she sang it so its unlikely.
