Frozen: Do You Want to Build a Snowman? Song Lyrics

Here are the lyrics to the saddest song from Frozen, "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" Frozen is a project that spent decades in development hell at Disney, with various writers and directors unable to crack it. The story is loosely based on The Snow Queen fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen and tells the story of Anna, who has to break the icy spell cast over her kingdom by her sister, the Snow Queen Elsa.

All the years the project spent trapped in development paid off, with Frozen becoming a worldwide sensation. The movie grossed over $1.2 billion and was acclaimed for its animation, storyline, soundtrack, and the voice acting by Kristen Bell (The Good Place), Josh Gad, and Idina Menzel. The film was such a success that Disney, who rarely focus on sequels, are making Frozen 2. The follow-up is set to arrive in November 2019.

One of the best things about Frozen was its soundtrack, which was filled with memorable songs like "Let It Go," which won a Best Original Song Academy Award. Another great track is "Do You Want To Build A Snowman?" which follows Anna's attempts to lure her sister Elsa out of her room. Elsa's ice powers started to manifest when she was young so after she hurts Anna by accident, she hides away. The song covers three time periods, from the sisters as children, to Anna still trying to tempt Elsa out after their parents die. Here are the lyrics to the song.

frozen anna song


Do you want to build a snowman?

Come on, let's go and play!

I never see you anymore

Come out the door

It's like you've gone away

We used to be best buddies

And now we're not

I wish you would tell me why!

Do you want to build a snowman?

It doesn't have to be a snowman

Go away, Anna

Okay, bye

Do you want to build a snowman?

Or ride our bike around the halls?

I think some company is overdue

I've started talking to

The pictures on the walls!

It gets a little lonely

All these empty rooms

Just watching the hours tick by

(tick-tock tick-tock tick-tock tick-tock)

Elsa, please I know you're in there

People are asking where you've been

They say, "have courage" and I'm trying to

I'm right out here for you

Just let me in

We only have each other

It's just you and me

What are we gonna do?

Do you want to build a snowman?

Frozen's "Do You Want To Build A Snowman?" montage is easily the saddest moment in the film, with Anna reaching out to a sister who is terrified of her own powers and just wants to hide away. It's an unusually dark song for an animated adventure too, which is why Disney considered taking it out, feeling it was too sad and dragged the pace of the film. Thankfully, the filmmakers managed to convince them the song was vital.

Just like "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" from The Lion King, "Do You Wanna Build A Snowman?" is a great example of using music to tell a story. Frozen has one of the best soundtracks of any recent Disney adventure and Frozen 2 will have a hard time topping it.
