"Out There" is a song from the 1996 Disney film The Hunchback of Notre Dame. It features Judge Claude Frollo shaming protagonist Quasimodo for his appearance and convincing him to stay in Notre Dame's bell tower. After Frollo leaves, Quasimodo begins to fantasize about spending a day outside among other people.

The song was performed by Frollo's voice actor, the late Tony Jay, and Quasimodo's voice actor Tom Hulce.

LyricsEdit

The world is cruel
The world is wicked
It's I alone whom you can trust in this whole city
I am your only friend

I who keep you, teach you, feed you, dress you
I who look upon you without fear
How can I protect you, boy, unless you always
Stay in here,
Away in here?

[Remember what I've taught you, Quasimodo.]

You are deformed

I am deformed

And you are ugly

And I am ugly

And these are crimes for which the world shows little pity
You do not comprehend

You are my one defender...

Out there, they'll revile you as a monster

I am a monster...

Out there, they will hate and scorn and jeer

Only a monster...

Why invite their calumny and consternation?
Stay in here
Be faithful to me

I'm faithful

Grateful to me

I'm grateful

Do as I say
Obey

And/I'll stay in here

Safe behind these windows and these parapets of stone
Gazing at the people down below me
All my life, I watch them as I hide up here alone
Hungry for the histories they show me
All my life, I memorize their faces
Knowing them as they will never know me
All my life, I wonder how it feels to pass a day
Not above them
But part of them

And out there, living in the sun
Give me one day out there, all I ask is one
To hold forever
Out there, where they all live unaware
What I'd give
What I'd dare
Just to live one day out there

Out there among the millers and the weavers and their wives
Through the roofs and gables I can see them
Every day they shout and scold and go about their lives
Heedless of the gift it is to be them

If I was in their skin
I'd treasure every instant

Out there, strolling by the Seine
Taste a morning
Out there,
Like ordinary men
Who freely walk about there
Just one day and then, I swear
I'll be content
With my share

Won't resent
Won't despair
Old and bent
I won't care
I'll have spent one day out there!
