Part Of Your World Song Lyrics


ARIEL
(Maybe he's right. Maybe there is something the matter with me.
I just don't see how a world that makes such wonderful things could be bad.)

Look at this stuff
Isn't it neat?
Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?
Wouldn't you think I'm the girl
The girl who has everything?
Look at this trove
Treasures untold
How many wonders can one cavern hold?
Looking around here you 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 dancin'
Walking around on those - what do you call 'em?
Oh - feet!

Flippin' 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
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?
Bet'cha on land they understand
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

"Part of Your World" is a beautiful ballad from Disney's 1989 animation film "The Little Mermaid," sung by Ariel, the little princess of mermaids who has an unfulfilled desire to live life as a human being in this world; she wants to be a part of the human world. These could be things that arrest Ariel's thoughts: for example, her feeling somewhat trapped within her underwater life, slightly imprisoned, thirsty for freedom and new experiences. The song embodied a sort of come-what-may, adventurous spirit and resolve at all costs in fulfillment of her dream.

The main idea of the song is that of yearning and curiosity about the unknown. Ariel wants to "be part of that world," which is at least tantamount to some human longing to want to seek more and learn about what has been revealed.

These seem to point towards the desire of change in the course of life and, clearly, for one to truly chase his or her dreams, thus emphasizing that real happiness lies in doing that really appeals to the heart and, most importantly, doing so with new experiences. Ariel's growing enchantment with the object of man and her desire to walk among them becomes symbols of her further quest for identity and belonging. The lyrics "Look at this stuff, isn't it neat?" remind of great fascination with the human world, comparing her underwater life to the imagined one on the ground. Collection of human artifacts presents not just curiosity but a very deep connection to a world from which she has never experienced, in her eyes, and longs for something more from it.

The emotional tonality of the song "Part of Your World" is plaintive. But Ariel's voice was a gentle caress, which though bitter, was made sweet by the taste of hope that had to be out there somewhere besides this one life. The music stresses that alone, catching the sweet, smooth notes in almost a sea's rising and falling while slowly crescending in the quiet to a peak just as her strength of will and confidence would suggest.

"Part of Your World" is one of those Disney songs that have been loved by so many listeners and even stirred them to long for adventures and dreams. It signifies the human being's desire and longing to see, know what lies beyond what he sees around him. Ariel's transitioning from sea to land is a process much like that of a person's journey from childhood to maturity: leaving a land of fantasy and limits and moving into a land where endless possibilities and stark realities coexist. In summary, "Part of Your World" is a wonderful song in that it sums up who Ariel is and what she is all about. Its ever-timely message of yearning for something more—that other kind of life and that crunch of chasing one's own dreams—enlightens and, obviously by now, it has simply always made its point, which has been indicating it since, a clear Disney classic.
