We Don’t Talk About Bruno Lyrics
We don’t talk about Bruno, no, no, no
We don’t talk about Bruno, but
It was my wedding day (it was our wedding day)
We were getting ready
And there wasn’t a cloud in the sky (no clouds allowed in the sky)
Bruno walks in with a mischievous grin (thunder)
You telling this story or am I? (I’m sorry, mi vida, go on)
Bruno says, “It looks like rain” (why did he tell us?)
In doing so, he floods my brain (Abuela, get the umbrellas)
Married in a hurricane (what a joyous day, but anyway)
We don’t talk about Bruno, no, no, no
We don’t talk about Bruno
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 (tss, tss, tss)
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?
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)
We don’t talk about Bruno, no, no, no (no no)
We don’t talk about Bruno (we don’t talk about Bruno)
He told me my fish would die, the next day, dead (no, no)
He told me I’d grow a gut and just like he said (no, no)
He said that all my hair would disappear, now, look at my head (no, no)
Your fate is sealed when your prophecy is read
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 (oye, Mariano’s on his way)
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 (hey, sis)
I want not a sound out of you (it’s like I can hear him now)
I can hear him now
Yeah, about that Bruno
I really need to know about Bruno
Give me the truth and the whole truth, Bruno
(Isabela, your boyfriend’s here)
Time for dinner
A seven-foot frame (it was my wedding day)
Rats along his back (it was our wedding day) (we were getting ready)
When he calls your name, it all fades to black (and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky)
(No clouds allowed in the sky)
Yeah, he sees your dreams and feasts on your screams (Bruno walks in with a mischievous grin)
You telling this story or am I?
Oye, Mariano’s on his way
Bruno says, “It looks like rain” (a seven-foot frame, rats along his back)
In doing so, he floods my brain (when he calls your name, it all fades to black)
Married in a hurricane (yeah, he sees your dreams and feasts on your screams)
Don’t talk about Bruno
Why did I talk about Bruno?
Not a word about Bruno
I never should’ve brought up Bruno
Walt Disney Animation Studios is responsible for the production of the 2021 American computer-animated musical fantasy comedy film Encanto, and Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures is in charge of its distribution. It was the 60th film that the studio had produced, and Jared Bush and Byron Howard directed it. It was also co-directed by Charise Castro Smith, who co-wrote the screenplay with Bush.
Yvett Merino and Clark Spencer produced it, and it featured original songs performed by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Voice actors Stephanie Beatriz, Mara Cecilia Botero, John Leguizamo, Mauro Castillo, Jessica Darrow, Angie Cepeda, Carolina Gaitán, and Wilmer Valderrama are featured in the movie.
The story of Encanto centers on a Colombian family called the Madrigals, which spans multiple generations and is headed by a matriarch named Botero. All of the Madrigals’ children and grandchildren, with the exception of Mirabel Madrigal (Beatriz), are bestowed with supernatural abilities as a result of a miracle, which allows them to serve better the residents of their rural community, which is known as the Encanto. As soon as Mirabel finds out that her family’s magic is fading, she makes it her mission to discover why this is occurring and to restore the magic to both her family and their once-magical home.
