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 Yeah!

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

    Under the sea is just a song from the little mermaid but it kind of teaches us to look around and be greatful for where you live

    I love re watching Disney movies now I am older and seeing the true meanings of the songs and stories. Under the sea to me is Sebastian telling Ariel that all her friends are under the sea and on the land fish are not treated with respect. This song is to me a warning to Ariel. One I am glad she didn't take though.

    The song teaches us that you belong at home where you are yourself, not where you at act like your someone else. The point is Ariel should stay under the sea not on the shore. You are better of being yourself and being by those who love you. I absolutely love this song and think its a great way to help children understand that you are much better off when you are acting like the person you truly are. You need to also appreciate all that you have and you need too think about other people around you and not just think about yourself. Don't be jealous about what other people have be thankful for the fact that you can have part of a wonderful lesson that other people might not have the privilege to hear about the song or even have anyone that cares about them.
