"When Will My Life Begin" is Rapunzel's title song, featured in the hit Disney 2010 animated feature Tangled. The song was composed by Alan Menken with the lyrics by Glenn Slater.

The song was sung by Mandy Moore as Rapunzel, as well as the reprises. However, the first reprise is not in the movie and is only found on the Tangled soundtrack.

The song is about Rapunzel who's bored staying in the tower because everyday she's just doing the same thing. The song is played while Rapunzel does her chores, which can be called "a Working Song".

Lyrics Edit

7 A.M., the usual morning lineup

Start on the chores and sweep 'til the floor's all clean

Polish and wax, do laundry, and mop and shine up

Sweep again, and by then it's like 7:15!

And so I'll read a book

Or maybe two or three

I'll add a few new paintings to my gallery'
I'll play guitar and knit

And cook and basic'ly

Just wonder when will my life begin?

Then after lunch it's puzzles and darts and baking

Paper mache, a bit of ballet and chess

Pottery and ventriloquy, candle making

Then I'll stretch, maybe sketch, Take a climb, sew a dress!

And I'll reread the books

If I have time to spare

I'll paint the walls some more

I'm sure there's room somewhere

And then I'll brush and brush

and brush and brush my hair

Stuck in the same place I've always been

And I'll keep won'drin and won'dring'

And won'dring and won'dring'

When will my life begin?

And tomorrow night

The lights will appear

Just like they do on my birthday each year

What is it like

Out there where they glow?

Now that I'm older
Mother might just

Let me go...
