Disney’s animated film Encanto (2021) has many memorable songs. We Don’t Talk About Bruno features the characters Pepa, Félix, Dolores, and Camilo.
In the song, We Don’t Talk About Bruno, Mirabel asks about her uncle Bruno. He has the gift of prophecy, and the four, Pepa, Félix, Dolores, and Camilo, warn Mirabel not to ask about him. Throughout the song, additional family and villagers sing about some of his guesses coming true.
The songs singing voices include the talented Carolina Gaitán, Mauro Castillo, Adassa, Rhenzy Feliz, Diane Guerrero, and Stephanie Beatriz, with lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda.
We Don’t Talk About Bruno Lyrics
Pepa: We don’t talk about Bruno, no, no, no
We don’t talk about Bruno, but
It was my wedding day
Félix: It was our wedding day
Pepa: We were getting ready
And there wasn’t a cloud in the sky
Félix: No clouds allowed in the sky
Pepa: Bruno walks in with a mischievous grin
Pepa: You telling this story or am I?
Félix: I’m sorry, mi vida, go on
Pepa: Bruno says, “It looks like rain”
Félix: Why did he tell us?
Pepa: In doing so, he floods my brain
Félix: Abuela, get the umbrellas
Pepa: Married in a hurricane
Félix: What a joyous day but anyway
Both: We don’t talk about Bruno, no, no, no
We don’t talk about Bruno
Dolores: Hey, grew to live in fear of Bruno stuttering or stumbling
I can always hear him sort of muttering and mumbling
I associate him with the sound of falling sand, ch, ch, ch
It’s a heavy lift with a gift so humbling
Always left Abuela and the family fumbling
Grappling with prophecies they couldn’t understand
Do you understand?
Camilo: A seven-foot frame, rats along his back
When he calls your name it all fades to black
Yeah, he sees your dreams and feasts on your screams (Hey)
All: We don’t talk about Bruno, no, no, no (We don’t talk about Bruno, no, no!)
We don’t talk about Bruno (We don’t talk about Bruno)
Señora Pezmuerto: He told me my fish would die, the next day, dead (No, no)
Osvaldo: He told me I’d grow a gut and just like he said (No, no)
Priest: He said that all my hair would disappear, now, look at my head (No, no)
All: Your fate is sealed when your prophecy is read
Isabela: He told me that the life of my dreams
Would be promised, and someday be mine
He told me that my power would grow
Like the grapes that thrive on the vine
Alma: Óye, Mariano’s on his way
Dolores: He told me that the man of my dreams
Would be just out of reach
Betrothed to another
It’s like I hear him, now
Isabela: Hey sis, I want not a sound out of you
Dolores: It’s like I can hear him now, I can hear him now
Mirabel: Um, Bruno
Yeah, about that Bruno
I really need to know about Bruno
Gimme the truth and the whole truth, Bruno
Camilo: Isabela, your boyfriend’s here
All: Time for dinner
All: A seven-foot frame, rats along his back (It was my wedding day, it was our wedding day )
When he calls your name it all fades to black (We were getting ready and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky)
Yeah, he sees your dreams and feasts on your screams (Bruno walks in with a mischievous grin)
Óye, Mariano’s on his way
Bruno says, “It looks like rain” (He told me that the man of my dreams would be just out of reach)
In doing so, he floods my brain (Betrothed to another, another)
Married in a hurricane (And I’m fine, and I’m fine, and I’m fine, I’m fine)
Don’t talk about Bruno, no
Mirabel: Why did I talk about Bruno?
All: Not a word about Bruno
Mirabel: I never shoulda brought up Bruno
