My Favorite Musical Song ~ No.10 “Out There”

No.10 “Out There”

Written by Stephen Schwartz

Translated by Keita Asari

Composer Alan Menken

 “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” 1996

Feelings for the song

To the French version introduced in No.5 Notre-Dame de Paris,

This is Disney-produced musical.

The original is the same Victor Hugo novel “Notre-Dame de Paris”


The story goes on refreshingly like Disney,

The heavy theme of the original cannot be ignored,

It might have been a little unfamiliar to the kids

who are Disney’s main target.


In the Japanese version of the DVD / CD, by members of Shiki Theater,

which will entertain you with its wonderful talent.

Quasimodo Kanji Ishimaru

Esmeralda Chizu Hosaka

Floro Takeshi Kusaka Song: Toshihide Mura

Kuropan Akihiko Mitsueda

Phoebus Eiji Akutagawa (currently Soma Suzuki)

Victor Kiyotaka Imai


They are singing expressive.

It is one of my favorite Disney animation.


Singing two roles from Floro (Toshihide Mura) to Quasimodo (Kanji Ishimaru)

The range is wide from Mr. Mura’s baritone to Mr. Ishimaru’s tenor,

but it is not as tight as I expected.

It is difficult to express the contrast between Floro’s coldness

and Quasimodo’s pure heart by myself.

But at the last part of Quasimodo

I can be released and refreshed.

I would try to let audience feel good

to see that I enjoy singing freely.


I want to listen to the new “Out There” version of the Shiki Theater.


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 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
And stay
In here
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
Ev’ry 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 ev’ry 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
