Colors of the Wind is an anthem for Pocahontas that describes "Pocahontas' reverence for nature." It is sung by Pocahontas, or Judy Kuhn. Ironically, the songs in the film both preceeding and following Colors of the Wind are the villain songs.


Lyrics

You think I'm an ignorant savage.

You've been so many places, I guess it must be so.

But still, I cannot see

If the savage 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

and the Earth is just a dead thing you can claim.

But I know every rock and tree and creature

Has a life

Has a spirit

Has a name.


You think that all the 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 grins?

Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain?

Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?


Come run the hidden pine trails

Of the forest

Come taist 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 rainstorm 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 loop that never ends


How high does the sycamore grow?

If you'll cut it down

Than you'll never know


And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the

Blue corn moon?

For whether we have white or colored skin.

We need to sing with all the voices of the mountain.

We need to paint with all the colors of the wind.


You can own the earth and still

All you'll own is earth until

You can paint

with all the colors

Of the wind.
