LyricsEdit

Melody:
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 but which way is right?
Well, now I'll be circling in in circles all night.

Melody [Spoken]:
Oh, so this is forward, no problem!

Melody:
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!

Melody:
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.

Melody (Ariel Ah's in different ranges throughout this part):
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!

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

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

Melody (Ariel Ah's in different ranges throughout this part):
For a moment, I can shine,
Got a grin and a fin that works fine.
My fingers are wrinkly I really don't care,
If all my curls are curled out of my hair.

Melody (Ariel Ah's in different ranges throughout this part):
For a moment, I can feel,
All the dreams I've been dreaming are real!

Melody:
Wish my mother could hear it, the sea is my song.
For a moment, just a moment, I belong!

Ariel:
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...

Ariel and Melody (Both lines at the same time):
Sing the song of the sea with you!
For a moment, just a moment, I belong!
