So lately my girls have been obsessed with the Little Mermaid movie and they love the songs from it so we sing a few of them most nights before bed. I'm amazed that both girls can pretty much sing along with this one called Part of Your World (which the girls have coined Ariel Song). Last night I caught Ada singing with my phone and thought I'd share it. I couldn't figure out how to just record her voice, so it's a black video…but you get the gist. She kinda trails off at the end but I thought she did very well for a 2 year old. Also, the lyrics are below the video if you want to follow along, I just assume that everyone already knows every word to this song.
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
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?
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?
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
