"I'm Wishing" is the first song featured in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and by extension, the first song in the Animated Canon. In the film, Snow White sings it as she cleans in the courtyard of the Queen's Castle. The Prince overhears her and listens for a bit while sitting on a wall, before he walks over and meets her, singing "One Song" to her.

Lyrics

Snow White:
You wanna hear a secret?
Promise not to tell?
We are standing by a wishing well.
Make a wish into the well.
That's all you have to do.
And if you hear it echoing,
Your wish will soon come true.

I'm wishing
(I'm wishing)
For the one I love
To find me
(To find me)
Today
(Today)

I'm hoping
(I'm hoping)
And I'm dreaming of
The nice things
(The nice things)
He'll say
(He'll say)

(Vocalizing)

I'm wishing
(I'm wishing)
For the one I love
To find me
(To find me)
Today

Prince: Today

Other usages

The song is a music track utilized in Snow White's Scary Adventures at the Disney Parks and is played around the Snow White Grotto where it can be heard coming from a wishing well.

In the Mickey Mouse episode "Wish Upon a Coin," Snow White begins humming the song before Mickey and Minnie sing the song in full, with Goofy and Pete singing parts of the song.

Trivia

  • The song "What Good Will Wishing Do?" from My Little Pony: The Movie is an homage to this song and its sequence, with Baby Lickety-Split singing into a well, and it sings back to her, though in this case, it was one of the Flutter Ponies.
  • The Beatles' song "Do You Want to Know a Secret" was inspired by this song.
  • This song and "One Song" are alluded to in Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep by the Prince, who mentions to Aqua, "It was a song that drew us together..."
  • A slightly different version of the song is sung by Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Goofy in "Wish Upon A Coin".
