"Set It Off" is the closing song from the Disney Channel Original Movie, Descendants, sung by Mal, Ben, their friends, and the rest of the students of Auradon Prep at the post-coronation party.

The song mirrors the opening song of the film, Rotten to the Core, given the villains are looking out to the school from the island, and the kids have now allied with good.

Story[]

After the aftermath of the coronation, and now with Maleficent turned into a small gecko. With all this good news, the students of Auradon Prep dance and sing together to celebrate and party.

Ben and Mal eventually head to the balcony to watch everyone else have fun. Breaking the fourth wall, Mal tells the audience off-screen that 'the story isn't over yet', hinting that there is more to come.

Lyrics[]

Set it off, set it off, set it off
Oh yeah
Oh yeah yeah
Let's set it off
Oh yeah
You can make it happen
Ohay, Ohay Hey!

Ben: Kings and Queens, it's our time to rise
Write the book story of our lives,
This is us taking back the night.
Ohay, Ohay
Mal: Break the spell, we were born this way
Be yourself, forget the DNA,
Everybody raise your hands and say
Ohay, Ohay, hey!

Evie: Sound the alarm, get on your feet
Let's set it off and rock this beat
Dance till your heart is wild and free
Crowd: Ooh, Oh, Oh
Evie: Feeling the power, let it all out,
Like what you see in the mirror, shout
We got the keys, the kingdom's ours
Ooh, Oh, Oh,
Ohay, Ohay Hey

Let's set it off! Oh yeah (oh, yeah)
Start a chain reaction,
Never let it stop!
Let's set it off, oh yeah (oh, yeah)
You can make it happen
With everything you got!
Let's set it off!

Get ready, set it off
Come on
We got to set it off
On the right
Get ready, set it off
To the left
We got to set it off!
Ohay Ohay Hey!

Jay and Carlos: Yo!
It's time to set this thing off,
Let's make it happen now
I'll make my own future, ignore the rumors,
Show 'em my passion sound
They all told me I should back down
Judgin' me 'cause of my background
Thinking 'bout changing my path now
Nah, I ain't goin' out like that now
Audrey: Feeling the power, let it all out,
Like what you see in the mirror, shout
Jay: We got the keys, the kingdom's ours
Ooh Oh Oh!

Oh yeah!

Let's set it off!
Oh yeah
Let's set this off!
Start a chain reaction,
Never let it stop!
Let's set it off!
Let's set this off!
Oh yeah
Let's set this off!
You can make it happen
With everything you got!
Let's set it off!

Get ready, set it off!
Come on
We got to set it off!
That's right!
Get ready, set it off!
(To the left!)
We got to set it off!
Get ready, set it off,
We got to set it off,
Get ready to set it off
Come on!

3, 2, 1, Uh!

(Instrumental Break)

Ooh yeah!

Let's set it off!
Oh yeah
Let's set this off!
Start a chain reaction,
Never let it stop!
Let's set it off
Let's set this off!
Oh yeah
Let's set this off!
You can make it happen
With everything you got!
Let's set it off!

Get ready, set it off
Come on
We got to set it off!
