"The Dress That My Mother Wore" was a deleted song from Cinderella in which after pulling out her mother's dress in order to mend it for the ball, Cinderella sang about how even though it was worn out, it meant a lot to her.


Cinderella: It's old and it's faded

It's tattered and torn

And it's often been mended before

But it's pink and it's blue

And to me, good as new

The dress that my mother wore

It's old and it's faded

The lining is worn

And the snap doesn't catch anymore

It's not worth very much

Yet I thrill when I touch

The dress that my mother wore

It's easy for me to start dreaming and see

How she looked long ago in that dress

As she toyed with the lace, looking down at the face

Of a boy softly whispering "say yes!"

I know how she felt

When she wore it and knelt

In the church as they prayed side by side

I can feel the world spin as he tilted her chin

And kissed her and made her his bride

It's old and it's faded 

It's tattered and torn

Yes, it's often been mended before

There's a rip here and there

But no gown can compare

With the dress that my mother wore
