I know you

I walked with you|once upon a dream

I know you

The gleam in your eyes|is so familiar a gleam

Yet I know it's true

That visions are seldom|all they seem

But if I know you|I know what you'll do

You'll love me at once

The way you did|once upon a dream

In a faraway land|long ago...

lived a king|and his fair queen.

Many years had they|longed for a child,

and finally their wish|was granted.

A daughter was born,|and they called her Aurora.

Sweet Aurora

Yes, they named her|after the dawn,

for she filled their lives|with sunshine.

Then a great holiday was proclaimed|throughout the kingdom...

so that all of|high or low estate...

might pay homage|to the infant princess.

And our story begins|on that most joyful day.

On that joyful day

On that joyful day

Joyfully now|to our Princess we come

Bringing gifts|and all good wishes too

We pledge our loyalty anew

Hail to the Princess Aurora

All of her subjects|adore her

Hail to the King|Hail to the Queen

Hail to the Princess Aurora

Health to the Princess|Wealth to the Princess

Long live the Princess Aurora

Hail, Aurora

Hail, Aurora

Health to the Princess|Wealth to the Princess

Long live the Princess Aurora

Hail to the King|Hail to the Queen

Hail to the Princess Aurora

Thus, on this great|and joyous day...

did all the kingdom celebrate|the long-awaited royal birth.

And good King Stefan and his queen|made welcome their lifelong friend.

Their Royal Highnesses,

King Hubert|and Prince Phillip!

Fondly had these monarchs|dreamed one day...

their kingdoms to unite.

Thus, today would they announce|that Phillip, Hubert's son and heir,

to Stefan's child|would be betrothed.

And so to her|his gift he brought...

and looked unknowing|on his future bride.

Their most honoured|and exalted excellencies,

the Three Good Fairies!

Mistress Flora,

Mistress Fauna...

and Mistress Merryweather!

- Oh!|- Oh!|- The little darling.

- Your Majesties.|- Your Majesties.|- Your Majesties.

Each of us the child|may bless with a single gift,

no more, no less.

Little Princess,

my gift shall be|the gift of beauty.

One gift

Beauty rare

Gold of sunshine

In her hair

Lips that shame|the red, red rose

She'll walk with springtime

Wherever she goes

Tiny Princess,

my gift shall be|the gift of song.

One gift

The gift of song

Melody her whole life long

The nightingale's|her troubadour

Bringing his sweet serenade|to her door

Sweet Princess,|my gift shall be the...

- Why, it's Maleficent.|- What does she want here?|- Shh!

Well, quite a glittering|assemblage, King Stefan.

Royalty, nobility,

the gentry, and...

How quaint.|Even the rabble.

I really felt quite distressed|at not receiving an invitation.

- You weren't wanted.|- Not wa...

Oh, dear, what|an awkward situation.

I had hoped it was merely due|to some oversight.

Well, in that event,|I'd best be on my way.

And you're not offended,|Your Excellency?

Why, no, Your Majesty.

And to show|I bear no ill will,

I, too, shall bestow|a gift on the child.

Listen well, all of you.

The Princess shall indeed|grow in grace and beauty,

beloved by all who know her.


before the sun sets on|her sixteenth birthday,

she shall prick her finger|on the spindle of a spinning wheel...

and die.

Oh, no!

Seize that creature!

Stand back, you fools!

Don't despair, Your Majesties.

Merryweather still|has her gift to give.

Then she can undo|this fearful curse?

Oh, no, Sire.

Maleficent's powers|are far too great.

But she can help.

- But...|- Just do your best, dear.

Yes, go on.

Sweet Princess,

if through this|wicked witch's trick...
