"We Know Better" is a deleted song from the animated film Frozen. The first part of the song can be found in the in the deluxe edition soundtrack.

The song is about Elsa and Anna as little girls complaining about all the things princesses are expected to do, claiming they "know better." The song follows their adolescences, from being close best-friends, to Anna growing into a beloved classic variation of a princess, and Elsa into a loner and feared out-cast, and the divide that grows between the two, despite Elsa's attempts to keep their bond alive.


Elsa (Age 3)Hello little baby, you’re princess just like me
Bet you’re thinking maybe it’s a pretty cool thing to be
But soon you’ll see that everyone expects a lot from you
They’ll say that there are things a princess should and shouldn't do
But you and me, we, we know better

Elsa (age 7) and Anna (age 4):1, 2, 3 together, clap together, snap together
You and me together, knees together, freeze together
Up or down together, princess crown together
Always be together, you and me

1, 2, 3 together, clap together, snap together
You and me together, knees together, freeze together
Up or down together, princess crown together
Always be together, you and me

Elsa (age 9)They say a princess is full of charm and grace
They say she always knows her place
They say a princess wears pink and frilly clothes
They say she never laughs and snorts milk out her nose
They say she’s calm, they say she’s kind
They say she never speaks her mind or freezes nanny’s big behind

Elsa and Anna (age 6)But you and me, we, we know better

Nanny: You girls are in so much trouble! Wait until I tell your father...
Anna: How come you can do that and I can’t?
Elsa: I don’t know, I wish you could though...

Anna (age 9)They say a princess is super duper sweet

Elsa (age 12)She doesn't fight; she doesn't sweat

BothAnd you never see her eat

AnnaThey say a princess doesn't climb and scrape her knee

ElsaThey say a princess wouldn't freeze her tutor’s tea

AnnaThey say she’s poised

ElsaThey say she’s fair

BothShe never mentions UNDERWEAR!

AnnaOr longs to see the world out there

BothBut you and me, we, have big ideas of our own
For the distant someday when we’re grown

Elsa (age 15)When I’m queen

Anna (age 12)And I’m your right hand

ElsaYou’ll get to travel

BothThroughout the land

Anna: I’ll tell them of my sister and the magic things she can do

ElsaWe’ll take care of our people and they will love

BothMe and you
No one can tell us what a princess should be
As long as we’re together, you and me

Elsa: They teach a princess to

Elsa and Anna: Be-Seen-and-Never-Heard!

Elsa: They say she doesn't dare or dream
They say she doesn't plan or scheme
Or go to any big extreme
To reunite a princess team

Elsa and Anna: But you and me
We... WHEE! We...Know... Better!

Female Freind: Hi Anna!

Male Friend: C'mon!

Female Friend: Join us!

Elsa (age 18): Oh, great...!

Anna (Age 15): (to Elsa) Elsa please?
Try to be friendly
Just smile and say hi!
Don't be defensive
And look them in the eye!

Elsa: (whispering) These kids are jerk!

Anna: I know it's hard
But your temper makes it worst
They don't understand your gift

Elsa: Yeah... They think it's a curse!

Anna: (sigh)

Elsa: They want me to stay mild and meek
I'm supposed to turn the other cheek
But if one more kid calls me a...
Wait for it...


Anna: Elsa! What did you do...?
I'm so sorry!
(under her breath to Elsa) You should know better

Anna (age 19): They say a princess
One day will meet her prince
She must enhance her beauty

Elsa (age 22): And maybe try some mints

Anna: Hmmm... They say that he'll have royal blood in every vein
With noble brow and chiseled face

Elsa: And microscopic brain

Anna: They say he'll come along one day

Elsa: With Royal Inbred D.N.A

Anna: And change your life in every way

Elsa: But you and me
We know better...
