"Making Today a Perfect Day" is a song written by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, and sung by Elsa (Idina Menzel) and Anna (Kristen Bell), with the additional vocals from Oaken (Chris Williams), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), and Olaf (Josh Gad), in the 2015 Disney animated short Frozen Fever.

During the song, Elsa comes down with a cold while trying her utmost best to make Anna's birthday the best that she has ever had to make up for the ones missed out on over the years. However, Elsa's cold worsens which results in her exhaustion, and with Anna's insistence she finally goes to rest in the evening. To Anna, the best gift Elsa gave was allowing Anna be able to take care of her older sister.


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


Anna: Elsa, I'm thinkin' ya might have a cold

Elsa: I don't get colds. Besides... A cold never bothered me anyway

Anna: Whoa

Elsa: Fancy

Just follow the string!

Anna: Wait, what?

Elsa: I've got big plans! I've got surprises for today!
Nothin' but nothin'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 givin' you the sun the moon, and the sky

Elsa: I'm makin' today a perfect day for you

Anna: Ooh, sandwich.

Elsa: I'm makin' 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 makin' today a perfect day for you

Achoo! Achoo!

Anna: They come in threes.

Elsa: I'm fine. Achoo!

Surprise, surprise this one is specially... 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 be.. eh-, 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 about a cold remedy... of my own invention?

Elsa: No thanks.

Anna: We'll take it.

Elsa: Come on. Now we climb!

Anna: Elsa, that's too much. You need to rest.

Elsa: We need to get 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...
Hot, cold, hot birthday

Anna: Elsa, look at you, you've got a fever. You're burning up.

Alright 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.
