    Under the Sea – The Little Mermaid


    Writers: Alan Menken and Howard Ashman


    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 are you looking for

    Under the sea
    Under the sea
    Darling 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’re devotin’
    Full time to floatin’
    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 goin’ be on the plate
    Oh no!

    Under the sea
    Under the sea
    Nobody beat us
    Fry us and eat us
    In fricassee
    We what the land folks love to cook
    Under the sea we off the hook
    We got no troubles
    Life is the bubbles
    Under the sea
    Under the sea

    Since life is sweet here
    We got to be here
    Even the sturgeon and the ray
    They get the urge and 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 pay 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 ling’s on the strings
    The trout rockin’ out
    The blackfish she sings
    The smelt and the sprat
    You know where it’s at
    And oh that blowfish blow

    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 crustacean band

    Each little clam here know how to jam here
    Under the sea
    Each little slug here cuttin’ a rug here
    Under the sea
    Each little snail here know how to wail here
    That’s why it’s hotter under the water
    Yeah we in luck here
    Down in the muck here
    Under the sea
