Life After Happily Ever After Lyrics

Rapunzel: This is life after happily ever after
And it’s all just as sweet as the stories say
I feel wild, free, as light as can be
And ready to explore
With nothing at all standing in my way

True, there are certain customs I have to follow
(Cassandra: Curtsy.)
Several small obligations I can’t avoid
(Cassandra: Princess? The time.)
A few rules, too -- well, more than a few --
Commitments by the score
Aside from all that, though, I’m overjoyed
(Cassandra: This way, Princess.)

And sure, there are corsets and buckles and bows
Plus all those names to recall (Jane? Right.)
(Ethel: Ethel.)
Still, I can hardly complain, I suppose --
This is happily ever after, after all.

Cassandra:That’s enough. I’ll take it from here. How you holding up?
Rapunzel:Busy. But busy is good.
Cassandra:I’m glad you think so, Raps, ’cause this welcoming ceremony is just the beginning.
Tomorrow’s the festival, followed by the royal banquet, and that’s all before the actual coronation on Sunday. Oh, come on, really? Look, Rapunzel, I know this princess thing is new to you, but you’ve got to at least try to act the part.
Rapunzel:Trust me, Cassandra, I know how important this is to my dad.

Captain:As you’ve requested, Your Majesty, we’ve doubled security on both the main gates and the south towers.
King Frederic:Good. We have guests from all over the world. I want them to know that they are safe. Everything for my little girl’s coronation weekend must be absolutely perfect.

Rapunzel:Hi, Dad.

King Frederic: And now that, at last, you are here in my arms
I won’t permit you to fall
I must protect you from all the world’s harms
We’ll live happily ever after, after all.

Now, as princess, you are not only representing yourself and the family, but all of Corona.
Rapunzel:Don’t worry, Dad. I won’t let you down. But while we’re on the whole princess, coronation thingy,
I mean, all these royal activities are great, but do you think I might be able to catch a little downtime soon?
King Frederic:I know this is all new, but you’ll adjust. After all, your friend seems to be getting on just fine.

Eugene:Ooh-hoo-hoo, Helmut, my man, this hat ties the whole outfit together!
Now, I know what you’re all thinking: “Why is Eugene in such a good mood today? “I mean, what gives?”

Now that we’re living splendidly
Our dreams fulfilled, extendedly
Why leave things open-endedly
For Rapunzel and moi?
Tonight I’ll hand this rose to her
Kneel down and then propose to her
And give this ring I chose to her (Nice!)
Life’s gonna be like strawberry sherbert
Once she is Mrs. Eugene Fitzherbert
Okay, not great, but how about this?
Once she is Princess Eugene Fitzherbert

And what better day to propose to a princess than at her coronation?

Both: This is life after happily ever after
And our story has finally reached its end
Eugene: Settling down here
Rapunzel: Year upon year
Eugene: Contented and secure
Rapunzel: With dozen of duties we’ll have to tend

Both: And now that we’ve gotten the dream that we chose
Now that we’re in for the haul
Now our adventures can come to a close
Living happily ever after, after all.

Rapunzel: Now that I’ve gotten the dream that I chose
Why does my world feel so… small?
If this is it and it is, I suppose…
Is this happily ever after, after all?

Okay, no pressure. Just introducing myself to the most important people in the world.
Representing my mom, dad, and the entire kingdom. We got this.
