School Life

The Ballad of Farquaad

Act Two ...

Princess Fiona rises and, excited that it is her wedding day, dances around, singing "Morning Person". When she enquires about her groom-to-be, Shrek and Donkey let the "short" jokes fly, and Shrek begins to mock her childhood circumstances. Each thinking his/her own childhood is worse, the two begin a contest of one-upmanship that culminates in a battle of disgusting bodily noises ("I Think I Got You Beat"). Through this, their pasts are revealed to one another, and a friendship is kindled.

Meanwhile, back in Duloc, Lord Farquaad plans his wedding, and he reveals his own sordid heritage with the song "The Ballad of Farquaad".
