The Family Madrigal Lyrics

The family Madrigal song quote that's life in the family Madrigal

Disney’s animated film Encanto (2021) has many memorable songs. The Family Madrigal features many characters from the film including Mirabel, Abuela, Alejandra, Cecilia, Luisa, and more.

In the song, The Family Madrigal, Mirabel introduces the viewers and Town Kids to Encanto and all of her family members and their special abilities. The song also hints at Mirabel’s lack of a special gift when the Town Kids ask her what her gift is.

The song is sung by the talented Stephanie Beatriz with lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

The Family Madrigal Lyrics

Mirabel: Drawers!
Floors!
Doors!
Let’s go!

This is our home,
We’ve got every generation
So full of music,
The rhythm of its own design

This is my family,
A perfect constellation
So many stars,
And everybody gets to shine

Whoa! Let’s be clear, Abuela runs this show (Whoa!)
Whoa! She led us here so many years ago (Whoa!)
Whoa, and every year our family blessings grow (Whoa!)
It’s just a lot, you’ve simply got to know, so

Welcome to the Family Madrigal,
The home of the Family Madrigal
(We’re on our way!)

Where all the people are fantastical and magical
I’m part of the Family Madrigal

Town Kids: Oh my gosh, it’s them!

Alejandra: What are the gifts?

Cecilia: I can’t remember all the gifts!

Pumped Juancho: But I don’t know who is who!

Mirabel: Alright, alright, relax!

Alejandra: It is physically impossible to relax!

Cecilia: Tell us everything! What are your powers?

Pumped Juancho: Just tell us what everyone else can do!

Mirabel: And that’s why coffee’s for grown-ups!


My Tía Pepa,
Her mood affects the weather
When she’s unhappy,
Well, the temperature gets weird
My Tío Bruno…

Citizens: We don’t talk about Bruno!

Mirabel: They say he saw the future,
One day, he disappeared
(Oh!)

And that’s my mom Julieta,
Here’s her deal
(Whoa!)

The truth is,
She can heal you with a meal
(Whoa!)

Her recipes are remedies for real
If you’re impressed, imagine how I feel
(Mom!)

Welcome to the family Madrigal
The home of the family Madrigal
(Hey, coming through!)
I know it sounds a bit fantastical and magical
But I’m part of the Family Madrigal

Two guys fell in love with Family Madrigal
And now they’re part of the Family Madrigal

So yeah, Tío Félix married Pepa
And my dad married Julieta
That’s how Abuela became an Abuela Madrigal
(Let’s go, let’s go!)

Abuela: We swear to always
Help those around us
And earn the miracle
That somehow found us

The town keeps growing
The world keeps turning

But work and dedication
Will keep the miracle burning
And each new generation
Must keep the miracle burning

Alejandra: Wait, who’s a sister, and who’s a cousin?

Cecilia: There’s so many people!

Pumped Juancho: How do you keep them all straight?

Mirabel: Okay, okay, okay, okay!

So many kids in our house
So, let’s turn the sound up
You know why?
I think it’s time for a grandkid round up

Citizens: Grandkid round up!

Mirabel: Cousin Dolores can hear a pin drop
Camilo shapeshifts
Antonio gets his gift today

My older sisters, Isabela and Luisa
One strong, one graceful
Perfect in every way

Chorus: Isabela

Mirabel: Grows a flower, the town goes wild

Chorus: Isabela

Mirabel: She’s a perfect golden child

Chorus: Luisa! Luisa! Luisa! Luisa!

Mirabel: And Luisa’s super strong
The beauty and the brawn do no wrong

Abuela: Let’s get ready!

Luisa: Coming, Abuela!

Mirabel: That’s life in the Family Madrigal
(Whoa…)

Now you know the Family Madrigal
(Whoa…)
Where all the people are fantastical and magical
(Whoa…)
That’s who we are in the Family Madrigal
(Adios!)

Alejandra: Well, what’s your gift?

Mirabel: Ha!
Well, I gotta go, the life of the Madrigal
(Whoa…)
But now you all know the Family Madrigal
(Whoa…)

I never meant this to get autobiographical
(Whoa…)
So just to review the Family Madrigal
Let’s go!

Town Kids: But what about Mirabel?

Mirabel: It starts with Abuela
And then Tía Pepa,
She handles the weather

Town Kids: But what about Mirabel?

Mirabel: My mom, Julieta
Can make you feel better
With just one arepa

Town Kids: But what about Mirabel?

Mirabel: My dad, Agustín, well
He’s accident-prone
But he means well

Town Kids: But what about Mirabel?

Mirabel: Hey, you said you wanna know
What everyone does
I got sisters and cousins and…

Town Kids: Mirabel!

Mirabel: My primo Camilo
Won’t stop until he makes you
Smile today

Town Kids: Mirabel!

Mirabel: My cousin Dolores
Can hear this whole chorus
A mile away

Town Kids: Mirabel!

Mirabel: Look, it’s Mister Mariano, hey
You can marry my sister
If you wanna but

Town Kids: Mirabel!

Mirabel: Between you and me,
She’s kind of a prima donna
Yo, I’ve said too much, and thank you
But I really gotta go

Town Kids: Mirabel!

Mirabel: My family’s amazing

Town Kids: Mirabel!

Mirabel: And I’m in my family, so…

Town Kids: Mirabel!

Mirabel: Well…

Abuela: Mirabel!
