Part of “That” World: By Abigail

Today I realized (aka found it amusing) how few words would have to be changed in Disney’s The Little Mermaid’s song, “Part of Your World,” to make it into a “homeschool edition” of the song. So I tinkered a few minutes and came up with the following.

Tip: it’s better if you sing/hum the tune as you read. 😉


Part of “That” World


Look at this stuff

Isn’t it neat?

Wouldn’t you think my life’s purpose complete?

Wouldn’t you think I’m the girl

The girl who has everything?


Look at this shelf

Treasures untold

How many Christian books can one bookshelf hold?

Looking around here you think

Sure, she’s got everything


I’ve got Bibles and siblings a plenty

I’ve got homework and housework galore

You want jean skirts? 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 ‘em dancing;

Movin’ around to those – what do you call ‘em?



Stayin’ at home you don’t get too far

Socialization’s required for friendships, dating

Attending a youth – oh – what’s that word again?



Out where they walk, out where they run

Out where friends cut away and have fun

Wanderin’ free – wish I could be

Part of that world


What would I give if I could live out of this hell-house?

What would I pay to spend a day free from control?

Bet’cha the world, it understands

That you don’t subjugate your daughters

Bright young women, sick of submission

Not here to command


And ready to know what the people know

Ask ‘em my questions and get some answers

What’s a condom and how does it – what’s the word?



When’s it my turn?

Wouldn’t I love, love to explore the world they talk of?

Wanderin’ free – Wish I could be

Part of that world
