"A Whole New World" is the key song from Disney's 1992 classic animated feature film, Aladdin, which was composed by Alan Menken along with lyrics written by Tim Rice. It is a love ballad performed by Aladdin (Brad Kane) and Jasmine (Lea Salonga) during a magic carpet ride around the world.

Summary

The song was sung by Aladdin (disguised as Prince Ali Ababwa) and Jasmine while they were riding on the Magic Carpet about the new world that they are about to discover together, such as Egypt and Greece, while their love for each other blossomed before they eventually stop in China to watch fireworks. All the while, Jasmine silently deciphers that Prince Ali is the boy that she met in the marketplace.

After Aladdin saves Agrabah and the Sultan allows Jasmine to marry whomever she deems worthy, an engaged Aladdin and Jasmine reprise the song as fireworks light the night sky to celebrate the new chapter of their lives.

Lyrics

Aladdin: I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we're only dreaming

Jasmine: A whole new world
A dazzling place I never knew
But when I'm way up here
It's crystal clear
That now I'm in a whole new world with you

Aladdin: Now I'm in a whole new world with you

Jasmine: Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

A whole new world (Aladdin: Don't you dare close your eyes)
A hundred thousand things to see (Aladdin: Hold your breath - it gets better)
I'm like a shooting star
I've come so far
I can't go back to where I used to be

Aladdin: A whole new world (Jasmine: Every turn a surprise)
With new horizons to pursue (Jasmine: Every moment red-letter)

Both:
I'll chase them anywhere
There's time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

Aladdin:
A whole new world (Jasmine: A whole new world)
That's where we'll be (Jasmine: That's where we'll be)

Aladdin: A thrilling chase

Jasmine: A wondrous place

Both: For you and me

Aladdin: A whole new world

Jasmine: A whole new life

Both: For you and me

Chorus: A whole new world

(vocalizes)

Aladdin:
You must feel trapped inside these walls
We'll run away, just you and me
Why not escape as evening falls?
Theres a whole world you've yet to see

Jasmine:
(spoken) If I go with you, will it be safe?

Aladdin:
(spoken) Sure. Do you trust me?

Jasmine:
(spoken) What did you just say?

Aladdin:
(spoken) Do you trust me?

Jasmine:
(spoken) I'm not sure why, but... yes.

Aladdin:
I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no or where to go
Or say we're only dreaming

Jasmine:
A whole new world
A dazzling place I never knew
But when I'm way up here, it's crystal clear
That now I'm in a whole new world with you

Aladdin:
Now I'm in a whole new world with you

Jasmine:
Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

A whole new world

Hold your breath, it gets better

Jasmine:

To where I used to be
