The 16 ‘supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’ ways that Disney Songs was right about University life

Disney shows! They are the epitome of a good old classic that stays with you throughout your lifetime. They encompass the fears, loves, insecurities and dreams that we have, even in adulthood, even in University. Yes, remember those classic scenes like…

Okay, while the words weren’t those, that’s a scene I can never forget. Even till today.

Disney shows are extremely good and so are some of their songs like, remember ‘supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’? The lyrics just automatically plays in your head once you hear the title of the song. You immediately know what comes next, and what comes after that.

These are songs that we listened to since young. The ones that we sing loudly and unabashedly to. (and maybe even dance to)Now that you have grown up, perhaps it’s time to ride that carousel again and revisit those great melodies that we once loved. So here they are, your favorite Disney songs rediscovered! (Ps. It’s OK to sing along or even dance! No one’s watching. :)

That feeling of freedom that you get upon entering university makes you feel like singing…I Just Can’t Wait To Be King~Hmmm and it sure looks like Simba is doing it all his way… though you shouldn’t be like him cause you are not really a king.

♫No one saying do this
No one saying be there
No one saying stop that
No one saying see here
Free to run around all day
Free to do it all my way!♫

And look! There are so many wonders brought about during the first semester of The Circle Of Life known as University life.

♫From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There’s more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done
There’s far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found ♫

And that feeling you have when it’s the first week of school? Well ‘Tarzan’ got it well captured in Trashin’ The Camp ~ (Ps don’t actually trash the school!)


♫Shoobydoop dobby dop dobby doop dobby dah dah doo dap♫

After which, oh the horror! So much things to learn, so much things to recall and so much things to catch up!

And so you have your very own Work Song like our dear Cinderelly to catch up with school work.

♫We can do it, we can do it

Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry
Gotta help our Cinderelly
(Ps. Nope Cinderelly we ain’t got time for you, lets just focus on helping ourselves huh)
Got no time to dilly dally
We gotta get it going♫
Work Song

At least, that is until a friend like Anna comes along… I don’t wanna build a snowman. I have lots of work to do, friend!

♫Do you wanna build a snowman?
Come on lets go and play! ♫

But sometimes, well sometimes, its ok to have a little fun just like Marry Poppins advised in A Spoonful Of Sugar that helps the medicine go down…All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy huh.

♫In every job that must be done
There is an element of fun
You find the fun and snap!
The job’s a game♫
Spoonful Of Sugar

Adopting a problem-free philosophy is ok too. HAKUNA MATATA. No rules. No responsibilities and best of all, no worries! Don’t be too hard and pressure yourself all the time! Be a little like Timon and Pumba and let loose a little or else you will be burnt out even before the end of the semester. What a wonderful phrase indeed.

♫Hakuna Matata!
What a wonderful phrase
Hakuna Matata!
Ain’t no passing craze
It means no worries
For the rest of your days
It’s our problem-free philosophy
Hakuna Matata!♫
hakuna matata

But sometimes if you find yourself ‘hakunamatata-ing’ a little too much, you mightwant to be like Meg in I Won’t Say I’m In Love and tell yourself to get a grip and focus on studying…

♫ I thought my heart had learned its lesson
It feels so good when you start out
My head is screaming get a grip, girl
Unless you’re dying to cry your heart out

But don’t worry as long as you get used to the pace like Oliver and Company, and balanced your work well enough then why should you worry?

♫The rhythm of the city
But once you get it down
Then you can own this town
You can wear the crown ♫
Oliver and Company

I think that the advice of how to make a man of oneself in Mulan is pretty good. Or in our case how to make a success out of you. Now, let’s get down to business and defeat those assignments and tasks!

♫Tranquil as a forest
But a fire within.
Once you find your center
You are sure to win.♫

If you exasperated over certain things in your group project or even with your friends, don’t be like Elsa and suddenly let it go. It’s not the most healthy thing that you can do in a group, well talk to them. You are a team, I’m sure that things can be talked over nicely. If all else fails, you all might need another friend to help facilitate the talking through.

♫The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
Couldn’t keep it in, heaven knows I tried!
Don’t let them in, don’t let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know
Well, now they know!♫
let it go

And if need be talk to your friends, I’m sure that you’ve got a friend in them and that they will be there for you when you need help.

♫“You’ve got troubles, and I’ve got ’em too
There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you
We stick together and can see it through
‘Cause you’ve got a friend in me
Some other folks might be
A little bit smarter than I am
Bigger and stronger too, maybe
But none of them will ever love you
The way I do, it’s me and you, boy
And as the years go by
Our friendship will never die
You’re gonna see it’s our destiny
You’ve got a friend in me.”♫
bigger and stronger

Also tell yourself that you can go the distance just like Hercules.

♫I am on my way, I can go the distance. I don’t care how far, somehow I’ll be strong. ♫Hercules

Like Tiana in the Princess and the Frog, you’re almost there!

♫There’s been trials and tribulations
You know I’ve had my share
But I’ve climbed the mountain, I’ve crossed the river
And I’m almost there, I’m almost there
I’m almost there!♫

And before you know it, it will soon be summer! Just try not to be like Olaf and think about what snowman do in summer when you should be studying.

♫But sometimes I like to close my eyes,
and imagine what it’d be like when summer does come
Bees’ll buzz, kids’ll blow dandelion fuzz
And I’ll be doin’ whatever snow does in summerrrrrr
A drink in my hand, my snow up against the burning sand
Prob’ly getting gorgeously tanned in summerrrrr♫

And at the end of the semester, be proud of yourself because you know that you have tried everything.

♫Look how far you’ve come, you filled your heart with love
Baby, you’ve done enough, take a deep breath
Don’t beat yourself up, don’t need to run so fast
Sometimes we come last, but we did our best♫
