Two manifestations of genius in music and animation

"What would I give if I could live / Out of these waters? / What would I pay just for one day / Warm on the sand? / Betcha on land, they understand / Bet they don't reprimand their daughters / Bright young women, sick o' swimmin' / Ready to stand!"

"Part of Their World" by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, from "The Little Mermaid" (John Musker and Ron Clements, 1989).

"Up There" by Marc Shaiman & Trey Parker, from "South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut" (Trey Parker, 1999).
