Snow White “Some Day My Prince Will Come” (1937)

“The Silly Song” is immediately followed by Snow White’s final song in the film “Some Day My Prince will Come,” where she sings to the dwarfs about how she’ll be reunited with her Prince someday and all will live happily ever after. Apparently there was supposed to be a dream sequence to accompany the song but the production either ran out of money or it wasn’t coming up to Disney’s standards, so it was cut. Musically, the song is a gentle waltz (in 3/4 time).

Some day my prince will come
Some day we’ll meet again
And away to his castle we’ll go
To be happy forever, I know

Some day when spring is here
We’ll find a love anew
And the birds will sing,
And wedding bells will ring
Someday when my dreams come true

While “Some Day My Prince Will Come” is a beautiful song, I have a big problem with Snow White being in love with the Prince at all. Leaving aside the fact that Snow White is  only 14 years old (yes, really, that’s how old she’s supposed to be), there’s no getting away from the reality that Snow White has seen the Prince once. And that wasn’t even a proper conversation, it consisted of one “Hello” and a brief love song. Even Aurora and Prince Philip spent more time together! Still, despite all that, it is a nice last song from Snow White.
