"All Good Things Must End" was a song that Ursula sings in the demo version of the Broadway musical adaptation for The Little Mermaid when she is disguised as the beautiful maiden Vanessa, and would have been sung by Emily Skinner as Ursula had she been chosen for the part. Similar to the song she sang in the film, she sang it as a means of gloating her victory, though unlike in the film, she actually sings it to Ariel's face in a taunting manner. The song was ultimately cut from the version of the musical that was released, and with it, Ursula's transformation into Vanessa, because Sherie Rene Scott, the chosen actress for Ursula, felt this was out of character for what she envisioned of the character, with the song ultimately being replaced by I Want the Good Times Back, which in itself would be replaced by Daddy's Little Angel for Regional and Licensed productions.

Lyrics

Look at how you're fretting
Life's getting upsetting
Loverboy's departing
You're starting to cry
I guess your dreams ain't turning out so swell
My dear, well, my dear, here's why

All good things must end
Flowers fade, balloons deflate
And butterflies disintegrate
And all good things must end
Puppies die and teeth decay
And lollipops are licked away

And oh
Jewels begin to lose their glow
Divas hear their last bravo
Even kings and queens eat crow

My dear, 'cause hey
Struggle though you may
The rules won't bend
All good things must

Gee, you're awfully mum, dear
So glum dear, how come, dear?
Better just embrace it
'Cause face it, you're through
And if perhaps things didn't go your way
My dear, hey, my dear, boo hoo!

See you in church, doll.

All good things must end
Beauty queens get old and fat
And wrinkle up, and that is that
No one bucks the trend
Every handsome Romeo
Gets bald on top and soft below
And soon every plum becomes a prune
Cities go to rack and ruin
Nothing in the world's immune

And as for love
All of the above applies, my friend
All good things
They come with strings

Yes, all good things must end
Pricey wine and fine champagne
Are flushed together down the drain
And as the fates intend
Parties dwindle down
'Til you're unconscious on the bathroom floor

And you, you've reached the end now, too
Everybody's bill comes due
Funny how the time just flew

My sweet and gee
Sad as it may be
Well, why pretend?
For all good things
The fat chick sings
And curtains soon descend
And you, poor thing
You've had your fling
But all good things must

End!
