The song was written by lyricist Stephen Schwartz and composer Alan Menken for Walt Disney Pictures' 33rd animated feature film Pocahontas (1995). The film's theme song, "Colors of the Wind" was originally recorded by American singer and actress Judy Kuhn in her role as the singing voice of Pocahontas.

It also won the Golden Globe in the same category as well as the Grammy Awardfor Best Song Written for a Movie. The song poetically presents the Native American viewpoint that the earth is a living entity where humankind is connected to everything in nature. The Lyrics of Colors of the Wind: Think you own whatever land you land on 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 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 learn things you never knew You never knew Have you ever heard the wolf cry To the blue corn moon Or ask the grinning bobcat why he grinned Can you sing with all the voices Of the mountains Can you paint with all the colors of the wind Can you paint with all the colors of the wind Come run the hidden pinet rails 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 rainstorm and the rivers are my brothers And the heron and the other are my friends And we are all connected to each other In a circle in a hoop that never ends Have you ever heard the wolf cry To the blue corn moon Or let the eagle tell you where he’s been 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 How high does the 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 of copper-skinned 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
