Under the Sea
Ariel, listen to me. The human world, it's a mess. Life under the sea is better than anyting they got up there.

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 around 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 devoting
Full time to floating
Under the sea

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 around 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 devoting
Full time to floating
Under the sea

Down here all the fish is happy
As off 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's gonna be on the plate
Oh, no
Under the sea
Under the sea
Nobody beat us
Fry us and eat us
In fricassee
We what the land folks loves to cook
Under the sea, we off the hook
We 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
Even the sturgeon an' the ray
They get the urge an' start to play
We got the spirit
You 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's rocking out
The blackfish, she sings
The smelt and the sprat
They know where it's at
An' oh that blowfish blow!

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 devoting
Full time to floating
Under the sea

Under the sea (Under the sea)
Under the sea (Under the sea)
When the sardine
Begin the beguine
It's music to me
What do they got? A lot of sand
We 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 here
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!
