"Almost There" is a song written by Randy Newman for Walt Disney Pictures' 49th animated feature film The Princess and the Frog (2009).

Mama, I don't have time for dancin'
That's just gonna have to wait a while
Ain't got time for messin' around
And it's not my style

This whole town can slow you down
People takin' the easy way
But I know exactly where I'm going
And gettin' closer and closer every day

And I'm almost there
I'm almost there
People down here think I'm crazy
But I don't care

Trials and tribulations
I've had my share
There ain't nothin' gonna stop me now
'Cause I'm almost there

I remember Daddy told me
"Fairy tales can't come true"
You gotta make 'em happen
It all depends on you
So I work real hard each and every day
Now things for sure are going my way
Just doing what I do
Look out boys I'm coming through

And I'm almost there
I'm almost there
People gon' come here from everywhere
And I'm almost there
I'm almost there

There's been trials and tribulations
You know I've had my share
But I've climbed a mountain
I've crossed a river
And I'm almost there
I'm almost there
I'm almost there
