“Part of Your World” From The Little Mermaid…
Music: Alan Menken
Lyrics: Howard Ashman
Performed by: Jodi Benson [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 ev’rything?
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 whozits and whatzits 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
(Whad’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
Outta 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 o’ 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 above?
Out of the sea
Wish I could be
Part of that world

Following The Leader From Peter Pan…
Music by Oliver Wallace / Lyrics by Ted Sears and Winston Hibler

Following the leader, the leader, the leader
We’re following the leader wherever he may go
We won’t be home till morning, till morning
We won’t be home till morning
Because he told us so

Tee dum, tee dee
A teedle ee do tee day
We’re out for fun
And this is the game we play:
Come on, join in
And sing your troubles away
With a teedle ee dum
A teedle do tee day

We’re following the leader, the leader, the leader
We’re following the leader wherever he may go
We won’t be home till morning, till morning
We won’t be home till morning
Because he told us so

Tee dum, tee dee
A teedle ee do tee day
We march along and
These are the words we say:
Tee dum, tee dee,
A teedle deelde deeay
Oh, a teedle ee dum
A teedle ee do tee day

Oh, a teedle ee dum
A teedle ee do tee day

You can fly ! You can fly ! You can fly ! From Peter Pan…
Music by Sammy Fain / Lyrics by Sammy Cahn

Think of the presents you’ve brought
Any merry little thought
Think of Christmas, think of snow
Think of sleigh bells Here we go!
Like a reindeer in the sky

You can fly! You can fly!
You can fly! You can fly!

Soon you’ll zoom all around the room
All it takes is faith and trust
But the thing that’s a positive must
Is a little bit of pixie dust
The dust is a positive must

You can fly! You can fly!
You can fly! You can fly!

When there’s a smile in your heart
There’s no better time to start
It’s a very simple plan
You can do what the birdies can
At least it’s worth a try

You can fly! You can fly!
You can fly! You can fly!
