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
