Ariel's "I Want" song, and the theme that embodies the spirit of the movie and is used throughout again and again to remind that it's Ariel's longing that drives the entire story. Through this song Ariel expresses her fascination with the world above and idealist views of what she dreams it's really like.

Trivia bit: When Jodi Benson recorded the song for the film, they were having problems getting the right performance, and the song only came together when the lights in the studio were dimmed so that Jodi could full immerse herself in the feeling of being underwater.

Thanks to Joahn for the lyric correction!

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?
Lookin' around here you'd think, sure, she's got everything

I've got gadgets and gizmos a-plenty
I've got who's-its and what's-its galore
You want thingamabobs? I've got twenty
But who cares, no big deal, I want more

I want to be where the people are
I wanna see, wanna see 'em dancing
Walkin' around on those - what do you call them again? 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
Wandering 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

Part of Your World: Worktape Version

An early work tape version of "Part of Your World", with the scratch vocals of Alan Menken, was included in the album The Music Behind the Magic. The work tape here is a highly abridged one, only featuring the opening paragraphs with some significantly different lyrics from those that ended up in the final movie. Thanks to Mariah for sending this in.

Wouln't you think I'm the girl
The girl who has everything?

Look at this trove, treasures untold
Copper and bronze and fine leather and gold
Paper and china and books
And look, feathers and everything

I should start an aquatic museum
I've got gadgets and what's-its galore
All these fish'd pay money to see 'em
But who cares, no big deal, I want more...

Part of Your World: Demo Version

This other early draft of the song is a demo version, also featuring the vocals of Alan Menken. It's a bit more cleaned up from the work tape, and is closer to what the final song ended up being.

I want to be where the people are
I wanna see, wanna see 'em dancing

Up where they stay all day in the sun
Where they breathe free free

Part of Your World: Synth Demo

This synth demo with vocals by Alan Menken was featured in the Legacy Collection is more complete and almost exactly the final version.

Part of Your World: Chely Wright Version

Country singer Chely Wright performed a version of "Part of Your World" for the end credits of The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea, and was released in a limited edition CD sampler. It features almost entirely the original version's lyrics, and the difference lies in the way certain words are pronounced, along with the busier (but still sweetly gentle) background music.

Part of Your World: Jessica Simpson Version

Jessica Simpson provided her own rendition of Part of Your World for the first Disney Mania album. This version features typical pop princess vocals, mixing in sassy and sexy into the lyrics, with a melody that isn't far off from the original. There's only very small changes from the original lyrics.

Part of Your World: Pop Dreamers Version

The Pop Dreamers album provides a remix version of "Part of Your World" as sung by an Alternate Universe version of Ariel. I think it's a pretty funky fun remix, with a catchy trance beat in the chorus that makes it an upbeat and pretty nifty version of the classic.

Part of Your World: On the Record

Ashley Brown performs a lovely rendition of the song for the musical revue On the Record. It's from this performance that she eventually earned the roles of Belle on Broadway's Beauty and the Beast and originated the title role of Mary Poppins also on Broadway.

Part of Your World: Skye Sweetnam Version

Whoa, Ariel's song gets a rock version in this Disney Mania cover by girl rocker Skye Sweetnam. It starts out innocent enough, sounding not that far off from the original movie version and then whammo! Electric guitar.

Part of Your World: Q;indivi Version

Part of Your World: Broadway Demo Version

Kerry Butler recorded a demo version of Part of Your World for the Broadway workshop. The lyrics are near identical to the movie version, but the background music has been changed somewhat from the intimacy of the movie version to something a bit more bold, showing that they intend this piece to be a belting show-stopper.

Sierra Boggess sings as Ariel in the original Broadway cast of the stage show. The lyrics and music are near identical to the movie version, recreating the sweetness that Jodi Benson gave us in the movie. The only difference, I feel, is that Sierra's accent is more distinct as she pronounces the words, and near the end the song builds into a bigger crescendo that is expected of a ballad show-stopper.

Part of Your World: BBC 2008 Celebration

Kerry Butler, who'd sung as Ariel in the Broadway demo recording, got to sing for her again at the 2008 BBC Radio 2 Celebrates the Music Disney concert. The instrumentals in this are lovely, it was a great going-back-to-basics thing after having heard so many different remixes.

Part of Your World: Anna Maria Perez de Taglé Version

Anna Maria Perez de Taglé sings a funky take of Part of Your World in Disney Mania 7, which means that this song has been covered for every single odd-numbered Disney Mania album. Is that a thing? It might just be. Anyway, she has a lovely voice with personality, which makes me wish we could hear more of her instead of the busy music.

Part of Your World: Carly Rae Jepsen

With every DVD release there has to be a new cover, so for 2013 Diamond Edition and The Little Mermaid: Greatest Hits album, Carly Rae Jepsen was brought on board to sing the classic Part of Your World. This is an earnest, stripped-down version, with none of the pop frills that's more common to remixing, making it very similar to the film version. The accompanying music video has, as a bonus, Carly Rae Jepsen looking very Ariel-like herself.

Part of Your World: Jessie J

Singer Jessie J performed a cover of Part of Your World for the 2015 album We Love Disney. It's a confident, back-to-basics rendition of the song in the style of one who wants to perform a classic just the way it is, and has only a few natural flourishes here and there for Jessie's powerful, husky voice to shine. Well done.

But who cares, no big deal, I want more

I wanna be where the people are
I wanna see, I wanna see 'em dancing
Walking around on those - what do you call them again? Oh, feet
Flippin' your fins, you don't get too far
Legs are required for jumping, dancin'
Strolling along down that - what's the word again? Street

Up where they walk
Up where they run
Up where they stay all day in the sun
Wandering 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 swimming
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: May J.

Japanese singer May J. performed the end title version of "Let It Go" for the Japanese release of Frozen, which was a pretty decent hit. Following up on that, in 2015 she released the cover album May J. Sings Disney, which contains covers of various Disney songs. One of the tracks is "Disney Princess Medley" where May J. is accompanied by violinist Emiri Miyamoto in taking on Some Day My Prince Will Come + Once Upon a Dream + Part of Your World.

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?
Lookin' around here you'd think, sure, she's got everything

I've got gadgets and gizmos a-plenty
I've got who's-its and what's-its galore
You want thingamabobs? I got twenty
But who cares, no big deal, I want more

I want to be where the people are
I wanna see, wanna see 'em dancing
Walkin' around on those - what do you call them? Oh, feet
Flippin' your fins, you don't get too far
Legs are required for jumpin', dancin'
Strolling along down the - what's the word again? Street

Up where they walk
Up where they run
Up where they stay all day in the sun
Wandering 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 swimming
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
