It is an interesting stuff – this song is called 'Shiny' and it is performed by Jemaine Clement, while there is a song in the soundtrack named ‘Bling-Bling’ and it is performed by a person named 'Shiny'. Interesting equivoque paronomasia.
A pop folk song continues a slightly over 3 minutes. And despite being performed by a person whose name sounds really French, it is sung completely in solid English.
The lyrics of the song completely recreate the French lyrics of the song ‘Bling-Bling’, probably to captivate the bilingual auditorium of the film or to stress out the idea even further.

Shiny Song Lyrics

Well, Tamatoa hasn't always been this glam
I was a drab little crab once
Now I know I can be happy as a clam
Because I'm beautiful, baby
Did your granny say listen to your heart
Be who you are on the inside
I need three words to tear her argument apart
Your granny lied!
I'd rather be...
Like a treasure from a sunken pirate wreck
Scrub the deck and make it look...
I will sparkle like a wealthy woman's neck
Just a sec!
Don't you know
Fish are dumb, dumb, dumb
They chase anything that glitters (beginners!)
Oh, and here they come, come, come
To the brightest thing that glitters
Mmm, fish dinners
I just love free food
And you look like seafood
(Like seafood)
Well, well, well
Little Maui's having trouble with his look
You little semi-demi-mini-god
Ouch! What a terrible performance
Get the hook (get it?)
You don't swing it like you used to, man
Yet I have to give you credit for my start
And your tattoos on the outside
For just like you I made myself a work of art
I'll never hide; I can't, I'm too...
Watch me dazzle like a diamond in the rough
Strut my stuff; my stuff is so...
Send your armies but they'll never be enough
My shell's too tough
Maui man, you could try, try, try
But you can't expect a demi-god
To beat a decapod (give it up)
You will die, die, die
Now it's time for me to take apart
Your aching heart
Far from the ones who abandoned you
Chasing the love of these humans
Who made you feel wanted
You tried to be tough
But your armour's just not hard enough
Now it's time to kick your...
Ever seen someone so...
Soak it in 'cause it's the last you'll ever see
C'est la vie mon ami
I'm so...
Now I'll eat you, so prepare your final plea
Just for me
You'll never be quite as...
You wish you were nice and...
