Okay, get a grip, get a hang of this flipper
It's like slipping two feet into one big huge slipper.
This way is left which way is right
Oh, now I'll be circling in in circles all night

Oh, so this is forward. No problem.

I can't believe I can do this and more
To swim in the sea like I walk on the shore
Out of my shell, not closed up like a clam
look out sea, this is me, here I am

For a moment all of me
Is alive and at home in the sea
I'm swirling and twirling, so graceful and grand
Not stubbing my toes getting stuck in the sand

For a moment life is cool
I'm a splash in the world's biggest pool
This is more than my thoughts ever thought it could be
For a moment, just a moment, lucky me

If only for one moment
I have shared with you all I know
The sea wouldn't be a mystery
But why did you have to go?

Everything's newer, and brighter and bluer
And truer to life than before
Watch me soar

For a moment I can shine
Got a grin and a fin, it works fine
My fingers are wrinkly, I really don't care
If all my curls are curled out of my hair

For a moment I can feel
All the dreams I've been dreaming are real
Wish my mother could hear it, the sea is my song
For a moment, just a moment, I belong

I will find you my darling
And the moment that I do
I'll hold you close, my Melody
And sing the song of the sea with you

Sing the song of the sea with you
For a moment, just a moment, I belong

    Melody just wants to explore the sea but her mom won't let her because she wants to keep Melody away from danger. so she ran away and became a mermaid and now her mom is searching for her. melody just wants her mom to see that she belongs in the sea and melody's mom is regreting about never telling her about life in the sea and she never told Melody she was a mermaid!
