The Little Mermaid – Under The Sea lyrics

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
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 devoting full time to floating
Under the sea, ha ha...

Down here all the fish is happy
And soft 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 goin' be on the plate?

Wo-no, under the sea
Under the sea
Nobody beat us fry, us and eat us
In frickazee
We what the land folks loves to cook
Under the sea we off the hook
We've got no troubles life, 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 (naturally-ee-ee-ee)
Even the sturgeon and the ray
They get the urge and start to play
We've got the spirit you've, 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 (yeah)
The ray he, can play the Ling's on the strings
The trout rockin out
The blackfish she sings
The Stout and the Sprat
They know where it's at
They know that blowfish blow

Under the sea
Under the sea
When the sardine begin to beguine
It's music to me (music is to me)
What do they got a, lot of sand
We've got a hot crustacean 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 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
