"Reindeer(s) Are Better Than People" is a song written by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, and sung by Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), in the 2013 Disney animated film, Frozen.

During the song, Kristoff, who has just been kicked out of Wandering Oaken's Trading Post and Sauna by Oaken, moved into a next-door barn with Sven to rest. Preparing to go to sleep, Kristoff sang a song about how reindeer are better than people, mimicking the voice of Sven.


Kristoff: Reindeers are better than people
Sven, don’t you think that's true?

Kristoff (as Sven): "Yeah, people will beat you
And curse you and cheat you
Every one of 'em's bad except you."

Kristoff: Aww, thanks buddy
But people smell better than reindeers
Sven, don't you think I'm right?

Kristoff (as Sven): "That's once again true
For all except you..."

Kristoff: You got me. Let's call it a night.

Kristoff (as Sven): "Good night."

Kristoff: Don't let the frostbite bite.


  • There is also an instrumental version of "Reindeer(s) Are Better Than People".
  • A remix was made of this song as a joke, after the songwriters realized how short the only song for Kristoff was.
