This time around, a group of dads who came together through, a social networking site for fathers, take on the memorable Disney tune and put their own spin on the track. "No matter who you are, becoming a dad changes everything," explains a caption at the beginning of the clip.

"As dads, we're fun. We're cool. We're macho and masculine but at the same time, we love our kids and will do anything to make them happy," one of the video's producers Tommy Riles said in an interview with Today Moms. "Plus, there just haven't been enough cover songs of that one ["Part of Your World"], so we had to do it."

According to the clip's description on YouTube, fathers tapped for the "Part of Your World" cover include firefighters, cops, Marines, doctors, barbers and construction workers from around the U.S. -- and they all look like they are having a great time singing the song.

"I grew up watching 'The Little Mermaid' and wished my dad sang this to me," one viewer commented on YouTube. "I love this video, guys, so sweet! We need more fathers like you guys out there."

Wrote another: "Proof, yet again, that there is nothing quite like a daddy's love for his daughter <3. This is so awesome."
