Mother Knows Best is a song sung by Donna Murphy.

Lyrics

Mother Gothel:
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

Rapunzel:
I know but-

Mother Gothel:
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

Rapunzel:
But-

Mother Gothel:
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 plagues!

Rapunzel:
No!

Mother Gothel:
Yes!

Rapunzel:
But--

Mother Gothel:
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

Mother knows best
Take it from your mumsy
On your own, you won't survive
Sloppy, underdressed
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 wuv you

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