For a Moment

This song is by Jodi Benson and appears on the Disney soundtrack The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea (2000).

Ok, get a grip, get the hang of this flipper
It's like slipping two feet into one big, huge slipper.
This way left, but which is right?
Oh, now I'll be circling 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.

Ariel (overlapping Melody's singing):
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 had shared with you all I know.
The sea wouldn't be a mystery.
Oh why did you have to go?

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

Ariel (overlapping Melody's Singing):

For a moment I can shine
I got a grin and a fin that works fine.
My fingers are wrinkly and I really don't care
If all the curls have 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 yo-o-o-o-u...!

Sing the song of the sea with yo-o-o-o-u!

Melody (at the same time along with Ariel):
For a moment, just a moment
I belo-o-o-o-ng!
