its-a-small-world-logoAnyone who has ever visited Disney will be familiar with the ‘It’s a Small World’ ride. And most of you will be left with the Small World song stuck in our head for the remainder of the day and possibly longer. Did you know that this ride was originally presented in the UNICEF pavilion of the 1964 World Fair in New York and it remains to this day a family favourite, in Disney Parks all over the world.

Another bit of trivia which you may not know is the catchy Small World song was written by the Sherman Brothers. They may not be a household name but you know them through their many musical works which include Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Jungle Book , The Aristocats, The Happiest Millionaire, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, The Parent Trap, Charlotte’s Web, The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh and The Tigger Movie. In fact they were in the middle of writing Mary Poppins when Walt Disney asked them to rescue the Small World project. The original idea of playing the various national anthems wasn’t working out and they needed something to replace it fast and so today we have the much loved Small World Anthem.

So all together now.

Song Lyrics

It’s a world of laughter, a world of tears.
It’s a world of hopes and a world of fears.
There’s so much that we share,
That it’s time we’re aware
It’s a small world after all.

It’s a small world after all.
It’s a small world after all.
It’s a small world after all.
It’s a small, small world.

There is just one moon and one golden sun.
And a smile means friendship to everyone.
Though the mountains divide,
And the oceans are wide
It’s a small world after all.

It’s a small world after all.
It’s a small world after all.
It’s a small world after all.
It’s a small, small world.

It’s a Small World After All
