In My Own Little Corner is a song from "Rogers and Hammerstein's Cinderella. In the song, the main character imagines herself to be anything she wants to be as long as she stays within her security corner of her house, where no one, not even her wicked stepmother and stepsisters can touch her. It'll be used in "MCF: Welcome to Tiny Toons" sung by Raina who answers Concord's request for a song, only for his brothers Nasty, Lardo and Slim to fall in love with her.
I'm as mild and as meek as a mouse When I hear a command I obey. But I know of a spot in my house where no one can stand in my way.
In my own little corner in my own little chair I can be whatever I want to be. On the wings of my fancy I can fly anywhere And the world will open its arms to me. I'm a young Egyptian princess or a milkmaid I'm the greatest prima donna in Milan I'm an heiress who has always had her silk made By her own flock of silkworms in Japan I'm a girl men go mad for love's a game I can play with cool and confident kind of air. Just as long as I stay in my own little corner All alone in my own little chair.
(Spoken: Cinderella I'm Thirsty! You're Thirsty! Cinderella where's our tea?!)
I can be whatever I want to be. I'm a thief in Calcutta
I'm a queen in Peru. I'm a mermaid dancing upon the sea I'm a huntress on an African safari...
It's a dangerous type of sport and yet it's fun In the night I sally forth to seek my quarry And I find I forgot to bring my gun. I am lost in the jungle all alone and unarmed
When I meet a lioness in her lair Then I'm glad to be back in my own little corner, All alone in my own little chair.
