    Where can I find the lyrics to the "It's a Small World" ride? I want the lyrics for the entire ride, including the foreign language lyrics. Thank you so much for your help.

    Great question! And who knew that the answer would be so hard to find?

    By the time you get off the Small World ride, it's almost impossible for any English speaker not to have those infectious lyrics (written by the Disney song-writing duo, Richard and Robert Sherman) permanently imbedded in their brain. Astute listeners will notice that the dolls in many of the lands do sing the Small World in many other languages.

    It's quite simple to find the lyrics to "It's a Small World" in English. A quick Google of "small world lyrics" will instantly bring up several versions. Additionally, the Hal Leonard company publishes several Disney-themed sheet music compilations where you can get the music along with the lyrics. I have purchased many of these for my piano-playing daughter and have never encountered non-English lyrics.

    I ended up finding the lyrics translated into other languages by Googling "small world lyrics french." This brought me to a link at www.everything2.com. Search there for "small world." When you get to the results page, scroll all the way down and you'll find the lyrics translated into French, Spanish, German, Italian, and Nihongo. (And frankly, I must confess that I am unfamiliar with that last one.)

    You may also be interested in the resource I found at squidoo.com. There is a wonderful Small World article here with links to many aspects of the history of the ride and videos of the attraction.

    Ciao, Adios, Au Revior ...
