About This Quiz
Since "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" was released in 1938, people have had Disney songs digging into their heads like the little earworms they are. However, the thing about Disney songs is that they aren't just catchy; they tell stories, narrate what's happening on screen, tell us how the heroes (and villains) are feeling about their lives and give us a sense that we are involved in the story ... After all, the songs are being sung to us (or various animals).
Growing up, it was nearly impossible not to know each of these songs by heart (or some variation based on the fact that you didn't have the lyrics to hand). We all know that Simba "just can't wait to be king" right before he runs away from his pride. We know that both Belle and Ariel really hate being suppressed and oppressed. And, of course, we know that all Disney princesses want to marry who they want to marry. We get this more from the songs than the actual dialog in most of these movies, because these songs are designed to advance the plot and develop the characters.
You know these songs. You grew up with them. Now it's time to test your skills to see just how ingrained they are in your brain. Take this quiz to see if you can complete these Disney songs.

"The medicine go down"
... "In the most delightful way!" ... OK, we needed to hear the rest of it as much as you did. This song is catchy and sends a great message to look for positive things to make terrible things feel a little better. (We don't recommend actually eating sugar when you take medicine, though.)

"Monsters, Inc." (2001) could be viewed as a warning for the energy crisis. Not only do these monsters work to scare children, the fear of the children powers a whole new world. However, we soon learn that laughter produces more energy ... Maybe this movie is trying to tell us something.
Here's a nonsensical song from "Cinderella" (1950). What are the lyrics? "Put 'em together and what have you got? ________"
Of all of the songs with nonsense words, "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo" is probably the most memorable (next to that other one from "Mary Poppins"). Disney always had a way of making witchcraft less scary (for the most part).

Where is Pocahontas going in this song? "Just around the ______"

"Going to see"
"Going to be here anymore"

Two cats sing this song. Can you finish the lyrics? "We are Siamese if you please. We are Siamese _______"
"If you don't please"

"Can't you see me on the stage performing _______" Do you know the last word in this line?

What do Timon and Pumbaa like to sing? "Hakuna _______"
"It means so worries," and if you think that this song isn't catchy, we doubt you've ever had an earworm. If you've seen "The Lion King" (1994), you know that this song was meant to cheer up their new friend and show him what a positive life can give you.
