Tangled (Blu-ray version - 1080p)

Mother Knows Best - Donna Murphy

Composer: Alen Menken
Lyrics: Glenn Slater.


You want to go outside? Why, Rapunzel...!

Look at you, as fragile as a flower
Still a little sapling, just a sprout
You know why we stay up in this tower (I know but...)
That's right, to keep you safe and sound, dear

Guess I always knew this day was coming
Knew that soon you'd want to leave the nest
Soon, but not yet (But...)Shh! Trust me, pet
Mother knows best

Mother knows best, listen to your mother
It's a scary world out there
Mother knows best, one way or another
Something will go wrong, I swear

Ruffians, thugs, poison ivy, quicksand
Cannibals and snakes, the plague (No!) Yes! (But...)
Also large bugs, men with pointy teeth, and
Stop, no more, you'll just upset me

Mother's right here mother will protect you
Darling, here's what I suggest
Skip the drama, stay with mama
Mother knows best

Mother knows best, take it from your mumsy
On your own, you won't survive
Sloppy, underdressed, Immature, clumsy
Please, they'll eat you up alive

Gullible, naïve, positively grubby
Ditzy and a bit, well, hmm vague
Plus, I believe, gettin' kinda chubby
I'm just saying 'cause I wuv you

Mother understands, mother's here to help you
All I have is one request

(- Rapunzel?
- Yes?
- Don't ever ask to leave this tower again.
- Yes, Mother.
- I love you very much, dear.
- I love you more.
- I love you most.)

Don't forget it, you'll regret it
Mother knows best
