Making Today a Perfect Day - Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell (Frozen Fever)


by Minerva Carrillo


The Experience: Sometimes things just don´t go as we plan them. But that doesn´t mean they don´t turn out great...




Music video: this is just the lyrics video...with scenes from the "Frozen Fever" movie clip featured at the beginning of the "Cinderella" movie. Elsa has been planning a perfect surprise party for Anna. She has every single detail worked out and is determined to make everything right...until she realizes she has a cold!

Meaning of Making Today a Perfect Day: Elsa is determined that nothing will spoil the perfect day she has planned for Anna. But, as her cold gets in the way, things are not so perfect anymore. She finally gives in and lets Anna take care of her...which turns out to be a perfect day after all.
Not all of our plans turn out to be the way we want them to. But, if we take one step at a time, we are able to discover there is much more to what we want. And, if we let ourselves be helped and cared for...it may just turn out to be perfect!

Ask yourself: Am I always worried about my perfect plans? Am I open to changes and suggestions?


LYRICS:

Elsa: You've never had a real birthday before
Except, of course, the ones just spent outside my locked door
So I'm here way too late to help you celebrate
And be your birthday date if I may...Achoo!

Anna: Elsa, I'm thinking you might have a cold
Elsa: I don't get colds. Besides...
A cold never bothered me anyway

Just follow the string!

I've got big plans, I've got surprises for today
Nothing but nothing's gonna get in our way
I've worked for weeks, planned everything within my power
I even got Kristoff and Sven to take a shower

If someone wants to hold me back
I'd like to see them try
I'm on the birthday plan attack
I'm giving you the sun, the moon, and the sky

I'm making today a perfect day for you
I'm making today a blast if it's the last thing I do
For everything you are to me and all you've been through
I'm making today a perfect day for you

Achoo! Achoo!

Anna: They come in threes!
Elsa: I'm fine...achoo!

Surprise, surprise this one especially...achoo!
Anna: Wow! You've got me reeling, but I'm still concerned for you
I think it's time that you go home and get some rest
Elsa: We are not stopping cause the next one is the best...ah...achoo!

Anna: Elsa, you gotta go lie down
Elsa: No way, we have to paint the town
Anna: But you need medical attention
Oaken: Are you sick? How 'bout a cold remedy
Of my own invention
Elsa: No thanks
Anna: We'll take it

Children's Chorus: We're making today a perfect day for you
Elsa: Making today a special day
Children's Chorus: We're singing a birthday song to make your wishes come true
Elsa: Wishes come true
Children's Chorus: We love Princess Anna
Elsa: And I love you too
Children's Chorus: So we're making today a perfect day...in every way
Yes we are making today a perfect day

(Instrumental)

Elsa: Come on! Now we climb!
Anna: Elsa that's too much. You need to rest!
Elsa: No...we need to get to our birthday chills...I mean thrills!

Making dreams
Making plans
Go go go go!
Follow the string to the end
You are my very best friend

Anna: Elsa?!
Elsa: What? I'm fine

We're gonna climb
We're gonna sing
Follow the string
To the thing

Happy happy happy
Merry merry merry
Hap...birth...hap...birthday!

Anna: Woah! Elsa, look at you. You've got a fever. You're burning up!
All right, we can't go on like this
Let's put this day on hold
Come on, admit it to yourself
Elsa: Okay...
I have a cold
I'm sorry Anna. I just wanted to give you one perfect birthday, but I ruined it. Again
Anna: You didn't ruin anything. Let's just get you to bed

Everyone: Surprise!
Anna: Wow!
Elsa: Wow...

Chorus: We're making today a perfect day for you
We're making today a smiley face all shiny and new
Kristoff: There's a fine line between chaos
Olaf: And a hullabaloo
Chorus: So we're making today a perfect day
We're making today a perfect day
A! N! N! A!
We're making today a perfect day for you

Kristoff: Happy birthday
Chorus: Making today a happy day and no feeling blue
Kristoff: I love you baby!
Chorus: For everything you are to us
And all that you do
Kristoff: I do
Chorus: We're making today a perfect day
Making today a perfect day
We're making today a perfect day

Elsa: Perfect day

Anna: Okay, to bed with you.
Elsa: No, wait! Wait! All that's left to do is for the queen to blow the birthday bugle horn!
Anna: Oh, no no no no no no no...
Elsa: ACHOO!

Anna: Best birthday present ever
Elsa: Which one?
Anna: You letting me take care of you
Elsa: Achoo!
