"Part of Your World" is a song written and composed by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman. It was originally featured in the 1989 Disney film The Little Mermaid, and is also featured in the Broadway musical adaptation of the film. The song is sung by Ariel, the title character, while in her hidden cavern which holds all of her treasures, most of which are human objects. It reveals how Ariel longs to be human and live among their culture, and how she's tired of being a mermaid living under the sea. In the film, the song was performed by Jodi Benson.

In the second movie, The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea, it is sung at the end by country singer Chely Wright.

Ariel singing in her cave

Ariel:

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
That they don't reprimand their daughters
Proper 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 world up above?


Out of the sea


Wish I could be


Part of that world
