"Part of Your World (Finale)" (also simply known as "Happy Ending") is the closing song of the Little Mermaid. It is the song played for Ariel and Eric's wedding day after the defeat of Ursula. Ariel meets with her father to say goodbye one last time. She and him hug, and she whispers the words, "I love you daddy." After which the chorus begins.


Now we can walk!
Now we can run!
Now we can stay all day in the sun!

Just you and me!
And I can be,
Part of Your World!



In the original storyboarded ending, Ariel reprises Part of Your World for a third time when she emerges from the shadows with human legs, making it the first time Eric would have heard her voice coming from her in the script.

Though the final chorus is not heard in the storyboarded version, the script states that the chorus would have played during the wedding. It could have been possible that the chorus wasn't ready for the storyboards.

The lyrics in this version are essentially the same as they were in the final movie, played twice in a row.

Alan Menken Demo Lyrics

Alan Menken and Howard Ashman developed another demo, possibly earlier than the storyboarded version. In this demo, judging from the build up of the music Ariel is slowly coming out of the water. She also approaches the beginning of the song in a more inquisitive manner than both the chorus and storyboarded versions.

Now can we walk?
Now can we run?
Now can we stay all day in the sun?!


Yes it was me,
please let me be,
Part of Your World!

Broadway Lyrics

Prince Eric (Drew Seeley) and Ariel (Chelsea Morgan Stock) live Happily Ever After

And now at last,
love has surpassed,
each tribulation!

Mermaid and man,
finally can,
join and be one!

Now they can smile,
walking the aisle,
here at their wedding celebration!

Sailing forward!

Standing steady!

Starting life, completely ready!

And now they can be who they're meant to be!
Now they can gaze on a new horizon!
Here between ocean and sky!
Forever and on!

Now they can walk,
Now they can run,
Now they can stay all day in the sun!

Just you and me!

And I will be!

Part of your world!


  • During this scene, Sebastian and Chef Louis were originally going to become friends, but Jeffery Katzenburg preferred them as enemies, and asked for the scene to be changed where Sebastian gets his comeuppance.
  • This was the first proper Disney chorus since Robin Hood in 1973 and the filmmakers stated in the DVD commentary that they were unsure of using a Disney chorus out of the fear that it would be deemed "cheesy". This chorus would be repeated for the majority of the renaissance until Hunchback of Notre Dame in 1996.
  • The Swedish dub features Sissel Kyrkjebø, the Swedish Voice of Ariel, singing over the top of the chorus, as Ariel, holding her final note through the choirs vocalizing till Eric and Ariel kiss.
