"Fixer Upper" is a song from Disney's 2013 animated film Frozen. It is performed by Bulda (Maia Wilson) and the Trolls.

The final song in the movie, "Fixer Upper" is pivotal to the film's story; it strengthens the romantic connection between Anna and Kristoff, and teaches Anna the crucial lesson of true love conquering fear and thawing a frozen heart.

Lyrics

Bulda: What’s the issue, dear?
Why are you holding back from such a man?
Is it the clumpy way he walks?

Cliff: Or the grumpy way he talks?

Female Troll 1: Or the pear-shaped, square-shaped
Weirdness of his feet?

Male Troll 1: And though we know he washes
Well - he always ends up sort of smelly.

Bulda: But you’ll never meet a fellow who’s as

Bulda and Cliff: Sensitive and sweet!
So he’s a bit of a fixer-upper,
So he’s got a few flaws.

Female Troll 2: Like his peculiar brain dear,

Male Troll 2: His thing with the reindeer.

Troll Duet: That’s a little outside of nature’s laws!

Small Group of Trolls: So he’s a bit of a fixer-upper,
but this we’re certain of
You can fix this fixer-upper
Up with a little bit of love!

Kristoff: Can we please just
Stop talking about this?
We’ve got a real, actual problem here.

Bulda: I’ll say! So tell me, dear
Is it the way that he runs scared?

Male Troll 3: Or that he’s socially impaired?

Troll Child: Or that he only likes to tinkle in the woods
Anna: I did not need to know that...

Cliff: Are you holding back your
Fondness due to his unmanly blondness?

Female Trolls: Or the way he covers
Up that he’s the honest goods?

All Trolls: He’s just a bit of a fixer-upper,
He’s got a couple of bugs
His isolation is confirmation
Of his desperation for healing hugs
So he’s a bit of a fixer-upper,
But we know what to do
The way to fix up this fixer-upper
Is to fix him up with you!

Kristoff: ENOUGH! She is engaged
to someone else, okay?!

(beat)

Cliff: So she’s a bit of a fixer-upper,

Male Troll 4: That’s a minor thing.

Male Troll 5: Her quote 'engagement' is a flex arrangement.

Troll Child: And by the way I don’t see no ring!

Male Trolls: So she’s a bit of a fixer-upper,
Her brain’s a bit betwixt.
Get the fiancé out of the way and
The whole thing will be fixed.

Bulda: We’re not sayin' you can change him,
‘Cause people don’t really change.
We’re only saying that love's a force
That's powerful and strange.
People make bad choices if they’re mad,
Or scared, or stressed.
Throw a little love their way.

Female Trolls: Throw a little love their way.

Bulda and Female Trolls: And you’ll bring out their best.

All Trolls: True love brings out their best!
Everyone’s a bit of a fixer-upper,
That’s what it’s all about!

Cliff: Father!

Female Troll 3: Sister!

Male Troll 6: Brother!

All Trolls: We need each other to raise
Us up and round us out.
Everyone’s a bit of a fixer-upper,
But when push comes to shove.

Olaf:
The only fixer-upper fixer
That can fix up a fixer-upper is

Trolls:
True! true!
True, true, true!
Love (True love)
Love, love, love, love, love
Love! (True love!)

True...

Troll Priest: Do you, Anna, take Kristoff to be your troll-fully wedded?

Anna: Wait, what!?

Troll Priest: You’re getting married!

Trolls: Love!

Trivia

  • When Bulda is telling Anna, "People make bad choices... true love brings out the best," she is inadvertently telling Anna how to solve Elsa's problem. Elsa made a bad choice because she was scared, and the way to solve the problem and get everyone to see Elsa's good side was to show the act of true love.
  • She's also referring to Anna's choice of Hans as a fiance, which she made because she was scared she might never get another chance.
  • The daughter of Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, Annie Lopez, provided the singing voice for the baby troll. It was said that she named the troll Pebble.[1]
