The Little Mermaid

Okay, so I am a dork, but in tribute to my beautiful car Ariel who recently got smashed in the front bumper due to me getting into a car accident, I am going to be The Little Mermaid for Halloween. Check out the wig and outfit! I am sooo excited. My tail will be made out of bubble wrap and I will have fake eyelashes too! I can't wait to be a red head and have long flowing red hair for a day. When I first was getting to know my boyfriend John he used to have me sing Part of Your World, and when he actually wanted me to sing the entire song to him while we were jogging in Northern Cali through the trees, I knew he was the guy for me. ;) Also, when I got sick and lost my voice one time he told me that when I could sing Part of Your World again, then that is how he would know if I was fully better or not. I sang it to him after work one day to convince him that he could kiss me again because my voice was back. It has become our little motto and I love that he enjoys my child like nature and love of Disney. Soon I will be able to be a part of Ariel's world on Halloween day!

(Maybe he's right. Maybe there is something the matter with me.
I just don't see how a world that makes such wonderful things could be bad.)

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?
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
