Rather Be With You is a song performed in the Descendants: Wicked World episode, Slumber Party. It is sung by Mal and her friends, who have a slumber party after the Neon Lights Ball. It was also used in Descendants 2 when it can be seen Dizzy Tremaine is listening to the song on her headphones as she's cleaning up the shop.

Lyrics[]

Good, bad, dark light
What you rather be tonight?

Would you rather
Eat a bad apple and sleep for a week
Or break up with your prince?
Would you rather
Ride to the ball in a pumpkin and fall
Or go out with him? Ew!

Good, bad, dark light
What you rather be tonight?

Doesn't matter what we do, cause I'd rather be with you
Rather be with you
Rather be with you
Doesn't matter who is who, cause I'd rather be with you
Rather be with you
Rather be with you

You-oo, you-oo
I'd rather be with you
You-oo, you-oo
I'd rather be with you
You-oo, you-oo
I'd rather be with you
You-oo, You-oo

Would you rather
Give a big smooch to a frog
Or drop your phone, into a bog? No!
Would you rather
Sing with a squirrel while you twirl
Or have a zit? (Ugh!) End of the world

Good, bad, dark light
What you rather be tonight?

Doesn't matter what we do, cause I'd rather be with you
Rather be with you
Rather be with you
Doesn't matter who is who, cause I'd rather be with you
Rather be with you
Rather be with you

You-oo, you-oo
I'd rather be with you
You-oo, you-oo
I'd rather be with you
You-oo, you-oo
I'd rather be with you
You-oo, You-oo

Good, bad, dark light
What you rather be tonight?

Would you rather
Eat a bad apple and sleep for a week
Or break up with your prince?
Would you rather
Ride to the ball in a pumpkin and fall
Or go out with him? Ew!

Good, bad, dark light
What you rather be tonight?

Doesn't matter what we do, cause I'd rather be with you
Rather be with you
Rather be with you
Doesn't matter who is who, cause I'd rather be with you
Rather be with you
Rather be with you

You-oo, you-oo
I'd rather be with you
You-oo, you-oo
I'd rather be with you
You-oo, you-oo
I'd rather be with you
You-oo, You-oo

Would you rather
Give a big smooch to a frog
Or drop your phone, into a bog? No!
Would you rather
Sing with a squirrel while you twirl
Or have a zit? (Ugh!) End of the world

Good, bad, dark light
What you rather be tonight?

Doesn't matter what we do, cause I'd rather be with you
Rather be with you
Rather be with you
Doesn't matter who is who, cause I'd rather be with you
Rather be with you
Rather be with you

You-oo, you-oo
I'd rather be with you
You-oo, you-oo
I'd rather be with you
You-oo, you-oo
I'd rather be with you
You-oo, You-oo

Would you rather wear a shoe made of glass?
Or fall asleep in your class?
Be grounded under the sea?
Or help the beast with his fleas?
Take 100 dalmatians
On a three-week vacation

Prick your finger on a spindle?
Um, what's a spindle? (Ugh!)

Good, bad, dark light
What you rather be tonight?

Doesn't matter what we do, cause I'd rather be with you
Rather be with you
Rather be with you
Doesn't matter who is who, cause I'd rather be with you
Rather be with you
Rather be with you

You-oo, you-oo
I'd rather be with you
You-oo, you-oo
I'd rather be with you
You-oo, you-oo
I'd rather be with you
