This article is about the song from the Broadway adaptation of Frozen. For the Frozen characters of the same name, see Trolls (Frozen).

"Hidden Folk" is a song from the Broadway adaption of Frozen. It takes places shortly after Elsa blasts her sister Anna with her ice magic, and their parents seek help from the Hidden Folk. It is a "pre-prise" of the song "Monster", which is sung later in the show by an adult Elsa.

For unknown reasons, the song was not recorded for the Original Broadway cast album, despite being part of the show when it debuted in Broadway in 2018. As such, very little is known about the tune or lyrics of the song outside of those who have seen the show.


Genesis of a Song "Monster" from Disney’s Frozen

At 5:41, the songwriters discuss "Hidden Folk", and sing some of the lyrics.

Songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez mention the song in a video interview about.


Elsa: Remove my magic, too! Please!
Pabbie: I'm sorry, Little Snow. That I cannot do. Your powers are part of you.
Elsa: I'm afraid of what I'll do!
Pabbie: Close your eyes, tell me what you see.

I see Arendelle, a winter night
People stare at me in fright
Angry crowds, jagged ice
Terror in their eyes
It's all because of me
They look my way and see
A monster!

Pabbie: Then fear will be your enemy, and death its consequence.
King: We’ll not let that happen. We’ll protect her!
Pabbie: Good - I bid you well
Bulda: Call on us at any time. We love children - raised a few strays ourselves.
Queen: Thank you.

Queen: She can learn to control it, I'm sure of it.
King: Give me your gloves. Put these on Elsa, see if they help you keep it inside. We'll close the gates and reduce the staff. We must limit her contact with people, and keep her powers hidden from everyone. Including Anna.
Queen: What? No, they’re sisters. We can’t expect them to stay away from each other!

Mother, it's how it has to be
What's best for her, is best for me
Father, I'll do as you say

King: We'll help you to control it, I know we'll find a way

Anna: Mummy?

Only until we get
More answers and then
We'll find our way back

To be a family again...
