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 smell-y.

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

Bulda and Cliff: Sensitive and sweet!

Anna [interrupting]: That's nice, but--

Bulda, Cliff: 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]
