The Little MermaidEdit

By this point in the movie, Ariel has already been turned into a human by Ursula, but she can no longer speak. If Ariel can't get her true love, Eric, to kiss her before her three days have passed, she will turn back into a mermaid and belong to Ursula. Sebastian, Flounder, and Scuttle try to get Eric to kiss Ariel so that she can be a human permanently, while the two sit in a rowboat in a lagoon. Sebastian makes the suggestion that Eric does want to kiss Ariel but he is too shy to do so, and that he should go ahead and "kiss the girl" to see if she likes him too.

LyricsEdit

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 too,
There is one way to ask her.
It don't take a word,
Not a single word, go on and
Kiss the Girl (sing wit' me now)

Frogs & Sebastien:
Sha la la la la la
My oh my
Look like the boy too shy
He ain't gonna kiss the girl
Sha la la la la la
Ain't that sad
Ain't it a shame, too bad
You're gonna miss the girl,

(dialogue)

Sebastien:
Now's your moment
(ya ya)
Floating in a blue lagoon
(ya ya ya)
Boy you better do it soon
No time will be better
(ya ya ya ya ya)
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've 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 (woah-woah!)
Sha la la la la la
Float along, and listen to the song
The song say, kiss the girl
Sha la la la la
The music play
Do what the music says
You gotta, kiss the girl

The boy's friend encourages him to talk to Tisdale, but every time he gets close, she goes somewhere else. The video ends with Tisdale asking him to dance, and then at the end she kisses him on the cheek. Tooth Tunes included the song in one of their products. The music video is included as a bonus feature on the 2006 Walt Disney Platinum Edition release of the film.

LyricsEdit

There you see her
Sitting there across the way
She don't got alot 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
It's possible she wants you too
There's one way to ask her

You don't take a word, not a single word
Go on and kiss the girl, kiss the girl

Sha la la la la la
My oh my
Looks like the boy's too shy
Ain't gonna kiss the girl

Sha la la la la la
Ain't that sad
It's such a shame, too bad

You're gonna miss the girl
Go on and kiss the girl, kiss the girl

Now's your moment
Floating in a blue lagoon
Boy, you 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 that girl, kiss the girl

Sha la la la la la
My oh my
Looks like the boy's too shy
Ain't gonna kiss the girl

Sha la la la la la
Ain't that sad
It's such a shame, too bad
You're gonna miss the girl

Sha la la la la la
Don't be scared
You better be 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
Go on and kiss the girl, kiss the girl

Oh, kiss the girl, kiss the girl
La la la la, la la la la
Go on and kiss the girl
La la la la, la la la la
Go on and kiss the girl

Sha la la la la la
My oh my
Looks like the boy's too shy
Ain't gonna kiss the girl

Sha la la la la la
Ain't that sad
It's such a shame
Too bad, you're gonna miss the girl

La la la la, La la la la
Go on and kiss the girl
Go on and kiss that girl!

La la la la, La la la la
Go on and kiss the girl
Go on and kiss the girl

Kiss the girl
Kiss the girl
Go on and kiss the girl!
