    Part of Your World – The Little Mermaid


    Writers: Opetaia Foa’i, Lin-Manuel Miranda


    Look at this stuff
    Isn’t it neat?
    Wouldn’t ya think my collection’s complete?
    Wouldn’t ya think I’m the girl
    The girl who has everything?

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

    I’ve got gadgets and gizmos aplenty
    I’ve got whosits and whatsits galore
    You want thingamabobs?
    I got twenty
    But who cares?
    No big deal
    I want more

    I wanna be where the people are
    I wanna see, wanna see ’em dancin’
    Walkin’ around on those –
    What do ya call ’em? Oh, feet
    Flippin’ your fins you don’t get too far
    Legs are required for jumpin’, dancin’
    Strollin’ 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
    Wanderin’ 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 swimmin’
    Ready to stand

    And 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
