LyricsEdit

Ariel hums

Ariel:
You are my world my darling
What a wonderful world I see
You are the song I'm singing
You're my beautiful Melody

Eric:
Darling, We better be going
Ariel:
Look at her isn't she glowing?
Eric:
She looks divine, and you look exquisite, but look at the time
Ariel:
Couldn't be is it?

Grimsby:
The crew is awaiting your orders
Various Ship's Crew:
We're sailing away from the borders
Steady boy steady
Ahoy there, they're coming!
Grimsby:
Trumpeters ready, drummers start drumming

Ariel:
Down to the sea we go
Down to a world I know
There's never been
Not ever before
A child born of sea and shore

Various Ship's Crew and Ariel:
Down to the sea we go
Down to the world below
A journey to bless
A princess to be
Under the sun, and under the sea

Under the Sea Creatures:
Ariel is coming (repeated very often)

Sebastian:
What's all the big commotion
That's spreading through the ocean
From sea to shining sea (Laughs)
There is no hesitating
Today we're celebrating
Ariel's Melody

Sebastian:
Today when Triton's daughter
Comes back here to the water
We're gonna have a spree
The boat is nearer now
I think I hear her now
Ariel's Melody

Under the Sea Creatures:
Lad-da-di-da ( repeated very often )

Merpeople:
Up from the sea we rise
Up to the world of skies
There's never been
Not ever before
A child born of sea and shore

Up from the sea we rise
Up to the world of skies
Forever to be
Together as one
Under the sea...
And under the sun...

Ariel:
This is your world my darling
One world the land and sea
My hope for you for always
Is that your heart will part of me

All at once by various:
Down to the sea we go (Up from the sea)
Down to the world we know
Together we come
Forever to be

All together:
Under one sun
The land and the sea
