Follow me to my Secret Grotto
Daughters of Triton

Ah, we are the daughters of Triton
Great father who loves us and named us well
Aquata, Andrina, Arista, Atina, Adella, Allana
And then there is the youngest in her musical debut
Our seventh little sister, we're presenting her to you
To sing a song Sebastian wrote
Her voice is like a bell She's our sister, Ari--





Under the Sea  


[Ariel, listen to me]
[The human world, it's a mess]
[Life under the sea]
[Is better than anything they got up there] 
The seaweed is always greener
In somebody else's lake
You dream about going up there
But that is a big mistake 
Just look at the world around you
Right here on the ocean floor
Such wonderful things surround you
What more is you lookin' for? 
Under the sea, under the sea
Darlin' it's better down where it's wetter
Take it from me.
Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devoting full time to floating
Under the sea 
Down here all the fish is happy
As off through the waves they roll
The fish on the land ain't happy
They sad 'cause they in the bowl 
But fish in the bowl is lucky
They in for a worser fate
One day when the boss get hungry
Guess who's gon'be on the plate 
Under the sea, under the sea
Nobody beat us, fry us
And eat us in fricassee
We what the land folks loves to cook
Under the sea we off the hook
We got no troubles, like is the bubbles 
Under the sea, under the sea
Under the sea, under the sea
Since life is sweet here
We got the beat here naturally
Even the sturgeon and the ray
They get the urge 'n' start to play
We got the spirit, you got to hear it
Under the sea 
The newt play the flute
The carp play the harp
The plaice play the bass
And they soundin' sharp
The bass play the brass
The chub play the tub
The fluke is the duke of soul
The ray he can play
The lings on the strings
The trout rockin' out
The blackfish, she sings
The smelt and the sprat
They know where it's at
And oh, that blowfish blow 
Under the sea, under the sea
Under the sea, under the sea
When the sardine begin the beguine
It's music to me
What do they got, a lot of sand
We got a hot crustaceuan band 
Each little clam here
Know how to jam here
Under the sea
Each little slug here
Cutting a rug here
Under the sea 
Each little snail here
Know how to wail here
That's why it's hotter
Under the water
Ya, we in luck here
Down in the muck here
Under the sea




Les Poissons

Les poissons, les poissons
How I love les poissons
Love to chop and to serve little fish 
First I cut off their heads
Then I pull out their bones
Ah, mais oui, ca c'est toujours delish 
Les poissons, les poissons
Hee-hee-hee, haw-haw-haw
With the cleaver I hack them in two 
I pull out what's inside
And I serve it up fried God,
I love little fishes, don't you? 
Here's something for tempting the palate
Prepared in the classic technique
First you pound the fish flat
With a mallet 
Then you slash through the skin
Give the belly a slice
Then you rub some salt in
'Cause that makes it taste nice 
[Zut alors, I have missed one!] 
Sacre bleu! What is this?
How on earth could I miss
Such a sweet little suculent crab 
Quel domage. What a loss
Here we go in the sauce
Now some flour, I think just a dab 
Now I stuff you with bread It don't hurt 'cause you're dead
And you're certainly lucky you are 
'Cause it's gonna be hot
In my big silver pot
Tootle-loo, mon poison, au revoir!




Kiss the Girl


[Percussion, strings, winds, words] 
There you see her
Sitting there across the way
She don't got a lot to say
But there's something about her 
And you don't know why
But you're dying to try
You wanna kiss the girl 
Yes, you want her
Look at her, you know you do
Possible she wants you to
There is one way to ask her 
It don't take a word
Not a single word
Go on and kiss the girl 
[Sing with me now] 
Sha la la la la la, my oh my
Look like the boy too shy
Ain't gonna kiss the girl 
Sha la la la la la, ain't that sad
Ain't it a shame, too bad
He gonna miss the girl 

Now's your moment
Floating in a blue lagoon
Boy, you'd better do it soon
No time will be better 
She don't say a word
And she won't say a word
Until you kiss the girl 
Sha la la la la la, don't be scared
You got the mood prepared
Go on and kiss the girl 
Sha la la la la la, don't stop now
Don't try to hide it
How you wanna kiss the girl 
Sha la la la la la, float along
And listen to the song
The song say kiss the girl 
Sha la la la la la, the music play
Do what the music say
You gotta kiss the girl 
You've gotta kiss the girl
You wanna kiss the girl
You've gotta kiss the girl
Go on and kiss the girl




Poor Unfortunate Souls (Deleted Lyrics)

Come on, I know you need a little magic
And magic is my specialty du jour
Don't just stand there looking sick
Would I kid you? Play a trick?
Like I told you, I don't do that anymore 
So I think you ought to take my little bargain
Yes, I think you ought to make my little deal
Sure, it's hard to leave your life
But you could be a prince's wife
Why don't you let me take that dream and make it real? 
Come on, you poor unfortunate soul
Poor child! Poor fish!
Aren't you glad you brought your problem
To a lady you can trust?
Won't you let me grant your wish? 
You poor unfortunate soul
Poor sweet! Poor dear!
Aren't you lucky that I'm ready
With a potion and a plan?
Aren't you glad you came and asked
If I could help you?
And I can
When a mermaid comes to Ursula
She always gets her man
You poor unfortunate soul
Fathoms Below

  I'll tell you a tale of the bottomless blue
And it's hey to the starboard, heave-ho
Look out, lad, a mermaid be waiting for you
In mysterious fathoms below 
Fathoms below, below
From whence wayward westerlies blow
Where Triton is king and his merpeople sing
In mysterious fathoms below
Heave-ho, heave-ho  Heave-ho, heave-ho, heave-ho
In mysterious fathoms below





Part of Your World 

  [Maybe he's right]
[Maybe there is something the matter with me]
[I just don't see how a world]
[That makes such wonderful things]
[Could be bad] 
Look at this stuff, isn't it neat?
Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?
Wouldn't you think I'm the girl
The girl who has everything? 
Look at this trove, treasures untold
How many wonders can one cavern hold?
Looking around here, you'd think Sure, she's got everything 
I've got gadgets and gizmos a-plenty
I've got who's-its and what's-its galore
You want thing-a-mabobs? I've got twenty
But who cares? No big deal.
I want more  I wanna be where the people are
I wanna see, wanna see 'em dancin' walkin' around on those
Whaddya call 'em? Oh, feet 
Flippin' your fins, you don't get too far
Legs are required for jumpin', dancin'
Strollin' along down the
What's that word again? Street
Up where they walk
Up where they run
Up where they stay all day in the sun
Wanderin' free, wish I could be
Part of that world 
What would I give if I could live
Outta these waters?
What would I pay to spend a day
Warm on the sand? 
Betcha on land they understand
Bet they don't reprimand their daughters
Bright young women, sick of swimmin'
Ready to stand 
And ready to know what the people know
Ask 'em my questions and get some answers
What's a fire, and why does it
What's the word? Burn 
When's it my turn? Wouldn't I love?
Love to explore that shore up above
Out of the sea, wish I could be

Part of that world




Part of Your World (Reprise)

What would I give to live where you are?
What would I pay to stay here beside you?
What would I do to see you smiling at me? 
Where would we walk?
Where would we run?
If we could stay all day in the sunJust you and me, and I could be
Part of your world 

I don't know when,
I don't know how
But I know something's starting right now
Watch and you'll see,
Someday I'll be
Part of your world




Poor Unfortunate Souls

I admit that in the past I've been a nasty
They weren't kidding when they called me Well, a witch 
But you'll find that nowadays
I've mended all my ways
Repented, seen the light
And made a switch 
And I fortunately know a little magic
It's a talent that I always have possesed
And here lately, please don't laugh
I use it on behalf
Of the miserable, lonely, and depressed-- Pathetic! 
Poor unfortunate souls, in pain, in need
This one longing to be thinner
That want wants to get the girl
And do I help them? Yes, indeed! 
Those poor unfortunate souls
So sad, so true
They come flocking to my cauldron
Crying spells, Ursula, please!
And I help them, yes I do 
Now it's happened once or twice
Someone couldn't pay the price
And I'm afraid I had to rake 'em
'Cross the coals  Yes,
I've had the odd complaint
But on the whole I've been a saint
To those poor unfortunate souls 

The men up there don't like a lot of blabber
They thing a girl who gossips is a bore
Yes, on land it's much preferred
For ladies not to say a word
And after all, dear
What is idle prattle for? 
[Come on] They're not all that impressed with conversation
True gentlemen avoid it when they can
But they dote and swoon and fawn
On a lady who's withdrawn
It's she who holds her tongue
Who gets her man 
Come on, you poor unfortunate soul
Go ahead, make your choice
I'm a very busy woman and I haven't got all day
It won't cost much, just your voice 
You poor unfortunate soul
It's sad, but true
If you want to cross a bridge, my sweet
You've got to pay the toll
Take a gulp and take a breath
And go ahead and sign the scroll
Flotsam, Jetsam, now I've got her, boys
The boss is on a roll
This poor unfortunate soul 
Beluga, sevruga, come winds
Of the Caspian Sea
Larynxes, glacydis, ad max
Laryngitis la voce to me 
[Now sing. Keep singing!]





Happy Ending 

Now we can walk
Now we can run
Now we can stay
All day in the sun
Just you and me
And I can be
Part of your world





Fathoms Below (Deleted Lyrics) 


Heave-ho, heave-ho
I'll tell you a tale of the bottomless blue
And it's hey to the starboard, heave-ho
Brave sailor beware, for a big 'un's a-brewin'
Mysterious fathoms below 
Heave-ho, heave-ho
I'll sing you a song of the king of the sea
And it's hey to the starboard, heave-ho
The ruler of all of the ocean is he
In mysterious fathoms below 
Fathoms below, below
From whence wayward westerlies blow
Where Triton is king and his merpeople sing
In mysterious fathoms below 
Heave-ho, heave-ho
I'll tell you a tale of the bottomless blue
And it's hey to the starboard, heave-ho
Look out, lad, a mermaid be waiting for you
In mysterious fathoms below 
The king of the ocean is angry
So trouble's a-brewin' out there
I'm tellin' you, lad, then King Triton is mad
How the waves'll buck, rock to and fro 
Hold on, good luck, as down you go
For Triton is king of the bottomless blue
And it's hey to the starboard, heave-ho
Beware of the magic his merpeople do
In mysterious fathoms below
Heave-ho, heave-ho




Part of Your World (Reprise) (Deleted Lyrics)

What would I give to live where you are?
What would I pay to stay here beside you?
What would I do to see you smiling at me? 
Now there's a dream
Now there's a goal
Now there's a need I'll never control
I won't get free
Till I can be Part of your world 

What would I give if I could live outta these waters?
What would I pay to spend a day holding your hand?
I'd give my life I'd sell my soul
'Cause I can feel I'll never be whole
But I can see I'll never be
Part of your world  
The Little Mermaid Lyrics
