"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
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
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.
Children choir: We're making today a perfect day for you
Elsa: Making today a special day
Children choir: We're singing a birthday song to make your wishes come true
Elsa: Wishes come true
Children choir: We love princess Anna
Elsa: And I love you too
Children choir: So, we're making today a perfect day.
A fabulous day in every way.
Yes, we are making today a perfect day
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
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.
Everyone: 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.
Everyone: So we're makin' today a perfect day,
Makin' today a perfect day!
A! N! N! A!
Makin' today a perfect day for you
Kristoff: Happy birthday.
Everyone: Makin' today a happy day
and no feelin' blue
Kristoff: I love you baby!
Everyone: For everything you are to us
and all that you do
Kristoff: I do!
Everyone: We're makin' today a perfect day.
Makin' today a perfect day,
Makin' today a perfect day
Elsa: A 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 bukkehorn.
Anna: Oh, no no no no no no no...
Anna: Best birthday present ever.
Elsa: Which one?
Anna: You letting me take care of you.
