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?

Oh – BEATS!

.

Stayin’ at home you don’t get too far

Socialization’s required for friendships, dating

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

Retreat?

.

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?

Work?

.

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
