The Little Mermaid the Musical - The World Above (Reprise) Lyrics


"The World Above (Reprise)" is a song from the Broadway musical The Little Mermaid performed by Norm Lewis (King Triton). Music by Alan Menken and Lyrics by Glenn Slater.

KING TRITON
This is where you belong!

ARIEL
You don't understand!

KING TRITON
For once, just listen, will you?
That savage brute would kill you in the world above!

ARIEL
He's not a barbarian—

KING TRITON
Don't try that same old song!
I'll have you grounded 'til next year!
Am I clear?
Don't go near that world above!

ARIEL
I'm not a child anymore!

KING TRITON
No? Have you lost your senses? He's a human you're a mermaid.

ARIEL
It doesn't matter!

KING TRITON
I'm still the king here – my word is law!
This filth you bring here is the final straw
And push, my daughter, has come to shove!
I'll make you obey
'til you do as I say
I don't care, come what may
But I'll keep you away
from that cruel, harsh, cold, vile world above!
