Lyrics

[I think he likes me.]

[Likes you? Please, Rapunzel, that's demented!]

[But Mother, I -]

[This is why you never should have left!
Dear, this whole romance that you've invented,
Just proves you're too naive to be here
Why would he like you?
Come on now, really!
Look at you! You think that he's impressed?
Don't be a dummy
Come with Mummy

Mother...

[No!]

[No? Oh. I see how it is.]

Rapunzel knows best
Rapunzel's so mature now
Such a clever grown up miss
Rapunzel knows best
Fine, if you're so sure now
Go ahead, then give him this!

[How did you-]

This is why he's here!
Don't let him deceive you!
Give it to him, watch, you'll see!

[I will!]

Trust me, my dear
That's how fast he'll leave you
I won't say I told you so!
No, Rapunzel knows best!
So if he's such a dreamboat
Go ahead and put him to the test!

[Mother, wait!]

If he's lying
Don't come crying
Mother knows best!

[I think he likes me.]

[Likes you? Please, Rapunzel, that's demented!]

[But Mother, I -]

[This is why you never should have left!
Dear, this whole romance that you've invented,
Just proves you're too naive to be here
Why would he like you?
Come on now, really!
Look at you! You think that he's impressed?
Don't be a dummy
Come with Mummy]

Mother...

[No!]

[No? Oh. I see how it is.]

Rapunzel knows best
Rapunzel's so mature now
Such a clever grown up miss
Rapunzel knows best
Fine, if you're so sure now
Go ahead, then give him this!

Ha!

This is why he's here!
Don't let him deceive you!
Give it to him, watch, you'll see!

Trust me, my dear
That's how fast he'll leave you
I won't say I told you so!
No, Rapunzel knows best!
So if he's such a dreamboat
Go ahead and put him to the test!

If he's lying
Don't come crying
Mother knows best!
