Part of Your World

Album: The Little Mermaid soundtrack (1989)
  • Look at this stuff, isn't it neat?
    Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?
    Wouldn't you think I'm the girl
    Girl who has everything?

    Look at this trove, treasures untold
    How many wonders can one cavern hold?
    Looking around here you'd think
    Sure, she's got everything

    I've got gadgets and gizmos a-plenty
    I've got whozits and whatzits galore
    You want thingamabobs?
    I've got twenty
    But who cares?
    No big deal
    I want more

    I wanna be where the people are
    I wanna see, wanna see them dancing

    Walking around on those
    What do you call 'em?
    Oh, feet

    Flipping your fins you don't get too far
    Legs are required for jumping, dancing
    Strolling along down a-
    What's that word again?
    Street?

    Up where they walk, up where they run
    Up where they stay all day in the sun
    Wandering free
    Wish I could be part of that world

    What would I give if I could live
    Out of these waters?
    What would I pay to spend a day
    Warm on the sand?

    Betcha' on land, they understand
    Bet they don't reprimand their daughters
    Bright young women, sick of swimming
    Ready to stand

    I'm ready to know what the people know
    Ask 'em my questions
    And get some answers
    What's a fire and why does it-
    What's the word?
    Burn?

    When's it my turn?
    Wouldn't I love, love to explore that shore up above
    Out of the sea
    Wish I could be
    Part of that world Writer/s: HOWARD ELLIOTT ASHMAN, ALAN MENKEN
