A bird is whistling to the song's rhythm
Snow White
Good morning, friend
Oh, my dear
There's something wrong
Cause all my words are coming out in song
A rhythm stirs deep inside my soul
I'm saying things in ways I can't control
Prince Charming
Ahhhhhhhhh Ahhhhhhhhhh
What's going on?
Someone cast a spell or curse
Cause what I say is coming out in verse
My voice just soars
Had no idea it could
Now I'm singing out, and my do I sound...good
What could be the reason?
Snow White
I think I know, my love
It's all because the wish I made upon the star above
With music in our hearts, we'll defeat the Evil Queen
Prince Charming
Snow White
Cause love expressed through song
Is a weapon like the Queen has never seen
Snow White & Prince Charming
There's a powerful magic, when two hearts are one
A powerful magic bright as the sun
Prince Charming
Goodness will triumph, and evil's undone
When you dare to heed love's call
Snow White & Prince Charming
Cause love is the most powerful magic of all
It's a powerful magic, when two voices soar
Snow White
I'm ever more hopeful for what lies in store
Prince Charming
Nothing will stop us, no not anymore
Watch the wish you made come true
Snow White & Prince Charming
That is what love and its powerful magic can do
Feel the song inside our hearts
That is where the magic starts
Snow White
Oh, it grows with every note
Prince Charming
Soaring sweetly from my throat
Snow White
Every line ends with a rhyme
Snow White & Prince Charming
Don't know how, but it's sublime
With a melody so strong
How can we go wrong?
With our powerful magic, we now have the means
Cause love can defeat curses, potions, or beans
And the unhappy ending, let that be the Queen's
With our daughter's fate at stake
Seems like we found a lucky break
Now let our song show the powerful magic
We can make


Song NotesEdit

  • About the song, Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis say it has a "very pilot feel to it in a sense". They explain that Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas "were so excited to do the musical that when you watch them do their duet [...] their enthusiasm is like you can feel it", before adding "it's the Snow and Charming you love the most".[1]
