"Almost There" is a musical nunber featured in the 2009 film The Princess and the Frog. The song was sung by Anika Noni Rose as Tiana. During the song sequence, the animation shifts to the same art deco style used in Tiana's picture of her dream restaurant and shows her doing different tasks such as signing a menu, adding whipped cream to desserts and wiping a small boy's mouth.

The music was composed by Randy Newman and was nominated for the Academy Award: Best Song.

The song is later reprised, when Tiana becomes depressed because she is in danger of losing the mill to her restaurant to a higher bidder. She then makes a wish on the evening star and meets Prince Naveen.


Mama, I don't have time for dancin'
That's just gonna have to wait a while
Ain't got time for messing around
And it's not my style
This old town can slow you down
People taking the easy way
But I know exactly where I'm going
Getting closer and closer every day

And I'm almost there
I'm almost there
People down here think I'm crazy
But I don't care
Trials and tribulations
I've had my share
There ain't nothing gonna stop me now
'Cause I'm almost there

I remember Daddy told me
Fairytales can come true
You gotta make 'em happen
It all depends on you
So I work real hard each and every day
Now things for sure are going my way
Just doing what I do
Look out boys, I'm coming through

And I'm almost there
I'm almost there
People gonna come here from everywhere
And I'm almost there
I'm almost there

There's been trials and tribulations
You know I've had my share
But I've climbed the mountain, I've crossed the river
And I'm almost there
I'm almost there
I'm almost there

Almost There
People would have come from everywhere
I was almost there.
