[Song] Colors Of The Wind

First, answers to the last episode.


Congratulations to the first 3 and correct fellows. 


Colors of the Wind” is a song written by lyricist Stephen Schwartz and composer Alan Menken for Walt Disney Pictures’ 33rd animated feature film Pocahontas (1995).

The song’s lyrics are about animism and respecting nature, and have been compared to both transcendentalist literature and New Age spirituality.

Let’s enjoy “Colors of the Wind”:

And here is the audio version:

Please LISTEN PATIENTLY. The question goes to 3 blanks in the lyric below.


You think I’m an ignorant savage

And you’ve been so many places

I guess it must be so

But still, I cannot see

If the ??? (1 word missing) one is me

How can there be so much that you don’t know?

You don’t know…

You think you own whatever land you land on

The earth is just a dead thing you can claim

But I know every rock and tree and ??? (1 word missing)

Has a life, has a spirit has a name

You think the only people who are people

Are the people who look and think like you

But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger

You’ll learn things you never knew, you never knew

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon?

Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?

Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain?

Can you paint with all the colours of the wind?

Can you paint with all the colours of the wind?

Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest

Come taste the sun sweet berries of the Earth

Come roll in all the riches all around you

And for once, never wonder what they’re worth

The ??? (1 word missing) and the river are my brothers

The heron and the otter are my friends

And we are all connected to each other

In a circle, in a hoop that never ends

How high does a sycamore grow?

If you cut it down, then you’ll never know.

And you’ll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon.

For whether we are white, or copper-skinned,

We need to sing with all the voices of the mountain

Need to paint with all the colours of the wind

You can own the earth and still,

All you own is earth until

You can paint with all the colours of the wind.

That’s all for today!

Did you seize the meaning of “paint with all the colours of the wind”?

See you next week. 🙂
