A Whole New World.
(From "Aladdin.")

I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we're only dreaming 

A whole new world
A dazzling place I never knew
But when I'm way up here
It's crystal clear
That now I'm in a whole new world with you
Now I'm in a whole new world with you

Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

A whole new world
Don't you dare close your eyes
A hundred thousand things to see 
Hold your breath - it gets better
I'm like a shooting star
I've come so far
I can't go back to where I used to be
A whole new world
Every turn a surprise
With new horizons to pursue
Every moment red-letter
I'll chase them anywhere
There's time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

A whole new world
That's where we'll be
A thrilling chase
A wondrous place
For you and me

(From "Melodytime.")

1) Pecos Bill was quite a cowboy down in Texas
And a western superman to say the least
He was the roughest, toughest critter
Never known to be a quitter
Cause he never had no fear of man or beast. [chorus]

CHORUS: Yippee-ai-ay
For the toughest critter west of the Alamo.

2) Once he roped a raging cyclone out of nowhere
Then he straddled it and settled down with ease
And while that cyclone bucked and flitted
Pecos rolled a smoke and lit it
And he tamed that ornery wind down to a breeze. [chorus]

3) Once there was a drought that spread all over Texas
So to sunny Californy he did go
And though the gag is kinda corny
He brought rain from Californy
And that's how we got the Gulf of Mexico. [chorus]

4) Once a band of rustlers stole a herd of cattle
But they didn't know the herd they stole was Bill's
And when he caught them crooked villains
Pecos knocked out all their fillins
And that's the reason why there's gold in them there hills. [chorus]

5) Pecos lost his way while travelin' through the desert
It was ninety miles 'cross the burnin' sand
He knew he'd never reach the border
If he didn't get some water
So he got a stick and dug the Rio Grande. [chorus]

6) While a tribe of painted indians did a wardance
Pecos started shooting up their little game
He gave those redskins such a shake up
That they jumped out of their makeup
That's how the Painted Desert got it's name. [chorus]

7) While reclining on a cloud high over Texas
With his guns he made the stars evaporate
Then Pecos saw them stars declining
So he left one brightly shining
As the emblem of the Lone Star Texas State 


Bare Necessities.
(From "Jungle Book.")

Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
Old Mother Nature's recipes 
That brings the bare necessities of life
Wherever I wander, wherever I roam
I couldn't be fonder of my big home
The bees are buzzin' in the tree
To make some honey just for me
When you look under the rocks and plants
 And take a glance at the fancy ants
Then maybe try a few
The bare necessities of life will come to you
They'll come to you!
Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
That's why a bear can rest at ease
With just the bare necessities of life
Now when you pick a pawpaw
Or a prickly pear
And you prick a raw paw
Next time beware
Don't pick the prickly pear by the paw
When you pick a pear
Try to use the claw
But you don't need to use the claw
When you pick a pear of the big pawpaw
Have I given you a clue ?
The bare necessities of life will come to you
They'll come to you!
So just try and relax, yeah cool it
Fall apart in my backyard
'Cause let me tell you something little britches
If you act like that bee acts, uh uh
You're working too hard .
And don't spend your time lookin' around
For something you want that can't be found
When you find out you can live without it
And go along not thinkin' about it
I'll tell you something true
The bare necessities of life will come to you.

Beauty and the Beast.
(From "Beauty and the Beast.")

Tale as old as time
True as it can be
Barely even friends
Then somebody bends

Just a little change
Small to say the least
Both a little scared
Neither one prepared
Beauty and the Beast.

Ever just the same
Ever a surprise
Ever as before
Ever just as sure
As the sun will rise.

Tale as old as time
Tune as old as song
Bittersweet and strange
Finding you can change
Learning you were wrong.

Certain as the sun
Rising in the east
Tale as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the Beast.

Tale as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the Beast.

Bella Notte.
(From "Lady and the Tramp.")

Oh this is the night, it's a beautiful night
And we call it bella notte
Look at the skies, they have stars in their eyes
On this lovely bella notte.

Side by side with your loved one,
You'll find enchantment here.
The night will weave its magic spell,
When the one you love is near!

Oh this is the night, and the heavens are right!
On this lovely bella notte!

Bippity Boppity Boo.
(From "Cinderella.")

Salicadoola, Menchicaboola,

Bippity Boppity Boo!

Put 'em together and what do you got?

Bippity, Boppity Boo! [repeat]


Salicadoola means,


But the thing-a-ma-bob

That does the job is

Bippity, Boppity Boo!


Salicadoola, Mencicaboola,

Bippity, Boppity Boo!

Put 'em together and what do you got?

Bippity Boppity, Bippity Boppity,

Bippity Boppity Boo!

Heigh Ho!
(From "Snow White.")

Heigh Ho! Heigh Ho!

To make your troubles go,

You just keep singing all day long

With a Heigh, Heigh Ho! Heigh Ho,

Heigh Ho! Heigh Ho!

And if you're feeling low,

You positively can't go wrong

With a Heigh, Heigh Ho! Heigh Ho! Heigh Ho!

I Know You.
(From "Sleeping Beauty.")

 I know You
I walked with you once upon a dream..
I know you
The gleam in your eye is so familiar a gleam.
But I know it's true
that visions are seldom all they seem.
But if I know you
I know what you'd do
You'd love me at once
The way you did once
Upon a dream.

Let's Go Fly a Kite.
(From "Mary Poppins.")

1) With toppance and paper and string,

You can have your own set of wings

With your feet on the ground

You a bird in flight,

With your fist holdin' tight,

To the string of your kite!




Oh-oh-oh let's go fly a kite,

Up to the highest height!

Let's go fly a kite,

and send it soaring

Up in the atmosphere,

Up where the air is clear,!

Oh let's go, fly a kite!


2) When you send it flying up there

All at onece you're lighter than air.

You can dance on the breeze over houses and trees,

With your fist holding tight,

To the string of your kite.

Love is a Song.
(From "Bambi.")

Love is a song that never ends
Life may be swift and fleeting
Hope may die yet love's beautiful music
Comes each day like the dawn.

Love is a song that never ends
One simple theme repeating
Like the voice of a heavenly choir
Love's sweet music flows on.

Under the Sea.
(From "Little Mermaid.")

The seaweed is always greener
In somebody else's lake
You dream about going up there
But that is a big mistake
Just look at the world around you
Right here on the ocean floor
Such wonderful things surround you
What more is you lookin' for?

Under the Sea
Under the sea
Darling it's better
Down where it's wetter
Take it from me
Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devotin'
Full time to floatin'
Under the sea

Down here all the fish is happy.
As off through the waves they roll
The fish on the land ain't happy
They sad 'cause they in their bowl
But fish in the bowl is lucky
They in for a worser fate
One day when the boss get hungry
Guess who's gon' be on the plate

Under the sea
Under the Sea
Nobody beat us
Fry us and eat us
In fricassee
We what the land folks loves to cook
Under the sea we off the hook
We got no troubles
Life is the bubbles
Under the sea
Under the sea
Since life is sweet here
We got the beat here
Even the sturgeon an' the ray
They get the urge 'n' start to play
We got the spirit
You got to hear it
Under the sea

The newt play the flute
The carp play the harp
The plaice play the bass
And they soundin' sharp
The bass play the brass
The chub play the tub
The fluke is the duke of soul
The ray he can play
The lings on the strings
The trout rockin' out
The blackfish she sings
The smelt and the sprat
They know where it's at
An' oh that blowfish blow

Under the sea
Under the Sea
When the sardine
Begin the beguine
It's music to me
What do they got? A lot of sand
We got a hot crustacean band
Each little clam here
know how to jam here
Under the sea
Each little slug here
Cuttin' a rug here
Under the sea
Each little snail here
Know how to wail here
That's why it's hotter
Under the water
Ya we in luck here
Down in the muck here
Under the sea.

When You Wish Upon a Star.
(From "Pinocchio")

When you wish up on a star,

Makes no difference who you are!

Anything your heart desires

Will come to you.

Like a bolt out of the blue,

Fate steps in and sees you through.

When you wish upon a star.

Your dreams come true.

(From "Song of the South.")

Zippidee-doo-dah! Zippidee-ay!

My! Oh My, what a wonderful day.

Plenty of sunshine

Headin' my way!

Zippidee-doo-dah! Zippidee-ay


Mr. Bluebird on my shoulder,

It's the truth! It's actual!

Everthing is satisfactual!

Zippidee-doo-dah! Zippidee-ay!

Wonderful feelin'

Wonderful Day!
