Mother Knows Best - From "Tangled"/Soundtrack Version

Lyricist: Tangled    Composer: Tangled
you want to go outside
Why rapunzel?

Look at you as fragile as a flower
Still a little sapling just a sprout
You know why we stay up in this tower
(i know but)
That's right to keep you safe and sound dear

Guess i always knew this day was coming
Knew that soon you'd want to leave the nest
Soon but not yet
Shh trust me pet
Mother knows best

Mother knows best
Listen to your mother
It's a scary world out there

Mother knows best
One way or another
Something will go wrong i swear

Ruffians thugs
Poison ivy quicksand
Cannibals and snakes the plague
(but )

Also large bugs
Men with pointy teeth and
Stop no more you'll just upset me

Mother's right here
Mother will protect you
Darling here's what i suggest

Skip the drama
Stay with mama
Mother knows best

Go ahead get trampled by a rhino
Go ahead get mugged and left for dead
Me i'm just your mother what do i know?
I only bathed and changed and nursed you

Go ahead and leave me i deserve it
Let me die alone here be my guest
When it's too late you'll see just wait
Mother knows best

Mother knows best
Take it from your mumsy
On your own you won't survive

Sloppy under-dressed
Immature clumsy
Please they'll eat you up alive

Gullible naive
Positively grubby
Ditzy and a bit well hmm vague

Plus i believe
Gettin' kinda chubby
I'm just saying 'cause i love you

Mother understands
Mother's here to help you
All i have is one request

Don't ever ask to leave this tower again
(yes mother)

Oh i love you very much dear
(i love you more)
I love you most hmm

Don't forget it
You'll regret it
Mother knows best
