Halle - Part of Your World

Look at this stuff
Isn't it neat?
Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?
Wouldn't you think I'm the girl
The girl who has everything?

Look at this trove
Treasures untold
How many wonders can one cavern hold?
Lookin' around here, you'd think
Sure, she's got everything

I've got gadgets and gizmos a-plenty
I've got whozits and whatzits galore
You want thingamabobs?
I got twenty
But who cares?
No big deal
I want more

I wanna be where the people are
I wanna see, wanna see 'em dancin'
Walking around on those, what do you call 'em?
Oh, feet

Flippin' your fins, you don't get too far
Legs are required for jumpin', dancin'
Strollin' along down a
What's that word again?
Street

Up where they walk, up where they run
Up where they stay all day in the sun
Wanderin' free, wish I could be
Part of that world

What would I give if I could live out of these waters?
What would I pay to spend a day warm on the sand?
Bet'cha on land they understand
Bet they don't reprimand their daughters
Bright young women, sick of swimmin'
Ready to stand

Ready to know what the people know
Ask 'em my questions and get some answers
What's a fire and why does it, what's the word?
Burn?

When's it my turn?
Wouldn't I love
Love to explore that shore up above?
Out of the sea
Wish I could be
Part of that world

Jonah Hauer-King - Fathoms Below


I'll tell you a tale of the bottomless blue
An' it's hey to the starboard, heave ho!
Heave ho!

Look out lad, a mermaid be waitin' for you
In mysterious fathoms below

I'll sing you a song of the king of the sea
An' it's hey to the starboard, heave ho!
Heave ho!

The ruler of all of the oceans is he
In mysterious fathoms below
Heave ho! Heave ho!
Heave ho! Heave ho!

Daveed Diggs - Under the Sea

Okay, okay, listen to me
The human world is a mess
Life under the sea
Is better than anything they got goin' on 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 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 devotin'
Full time to floatin'
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 their bowl
But fish in the bowl is lucky
They in for a worser fate
One day when the boss get hungry
Guess who gon' 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)

Yes, child, since life is sweet here
We got the beat here
Naturally (naturally)
Even the sturgeon and the ray
They get the urge 'n start to play
We got the spirit
You got to hear it
Under the sea

Watch this
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 lings on the strings
The trout rockin' out
The blackfish she sings
The smelt and the sprat
They know where it's at
And oh, that blowfish blow

Yeah, under the sea (under the sea)
Under the sea (under the sea)
When the sardine
Begin the beguine
It's music to me (music, it's 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
Cuttin' a rug here
Under the sea
Each little snail here
Know how to wail here
That's why it's hotter
Under the water
Ya, we in luck here
Down in the muck here
Under the sea

Jonah Hauer-King - Wild Uncharted Waters

Ah, ah
Ah, ah

All I ever wanted
Was the open sea and sky
Freedom from the life I always knew
Now all I am is haunted
As days and hours roll by
All I ever think about is you
There you are (ah), over me (ah)
Taking me (ah) with your song

To wild uncharted waters
Miles beyond the sea
I was darkness bound, I had almost drowned
'Til you came around, and you found me
Now I am on the shoreline
But I'm still lost at sea
In these wild uncharted waters
Come find me again

All I do is wonder
Who you are and where you'll be
In my mind, your melody goes on
Stronger than the undertow
The night you rescued me
Silhouetted by the rising dawn
Oh (ah), over you (ah)
I cannot (ah) get over you

In wild uncharted waters
Beyond where man can see
When your eyes outshine the horizon line
And you're finally real, here beside me
Now I'm right here on the shoreline
I'm right where you left me
And your voice is like
A siren that guides me

To wild uncharted waters
Alone, just you and me
And I hope you're there, in the open air
There's no map or compass to guide me, no
Time may change the shoreline
But time will not change me
If it takes my life
I will finally find you again
In uncharted waters
Come find me again

Melissa McCarthy - Poor Unfortunate Souls

I admit that in the past I've been a nasty
They weren't kidding when they called me, well, a witch
But you'll find that nowadays
I've mended all my ways
Repented, seen the light, and made a switch
True? Yes
And I fortunately know a little magic
It's a talent that I always have possessed
And here lately, please don't laugh
I use it on behalf
Of the miserable, lonely, and depressed, pathetic

Poor unfortunate souls
In pain, in need
This one longing to be thinner
That one wants to get the girl
And do I help them?
Yes, indeed
Those poor unfortunate souls
So sad, so true
They come flocking to my cauldron
Crying, "Spells, Ursula, please!"
And I help them
Yes, I do

Now, it's happened once or twice
Someone couldn't pay the price
And I'm afraid I had to rake 'em 'cross the coals
Yes, I've had the odd complaint
But on the whole, I've been a saint
To those poor unfortunate souls

So here's the deal
I'll whip up a little potion to make you human for three days
Got that? Three days
Before the sun sets on the third day
You and Princey must share a kiss
And not just any kiss
The kiss of true love
If you do, you will remain human permanently
But if you don't, you'll turn back into a mermaid
And you belong to me
We got a deal?
I don't know
Life's full of tough choices, isn't it?
No, this is wrong
I can't do this
Fine, then! Forget about the world above
Go back home to daddy, and never leave again!

Come on, you poor unfortunate soul
Go ahead
Make your choice
I'm a very busy woman and I haven't got all day
It won't cost much
Just your voice
You poor unfortunate soul
It's sad but true
If you want to cross the bridge, my sweet
You've got the pay the toll
Pluck a scale from off your tail
A drop of blood inside the bowl
Flotsam, Jetsam, now I've got her, boys
The boss is on a roll
This poor unfortunate soul

Beluga sevruga
Come winds of the Caspian Sea
Amnesia glossitis
Et max laryngitis
La voce to me
Now, sing

Ah, ah, ah, ah
Keep singing!
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

Halle - For the First Time

Look at the sun and the sky and the sand
And the sea behind me
Look at me, suddenly I am on land and I'm free
Don't mind me as I
Climb for the first time
Jump for the first time
Trying to stand but this gravity's pulling me down

Look, it's a fire, it's warm and it glows
And it lights this chamber
Let me admire it, ow! Get too close and it bites
I came too close for the first time
Burned for the first time
Everything's clearer and brighter and hotter
But now that I'm here like a fish out of water
I'm trying to stand but this gravity's pulling me down

Are we only food for slaughter?
Is this life on land?
Well, you were lonely underwater
Come on, Ariel, time to stand

Squeeze in the shoes and the corset, it's tight
And the seams are busting
Some women choose this, I guess it's alright
Are my dreams adjusting?

As I wait for the first time
Here for the first time
Now for the first time
He's coming through those doors
Up the stairs
From the shore
From that moment
And he'll smile
Like he knows
When I say

Realize the price that you paid with your voice
As he turns from you
Those sacrifices you made were a choice
That you can't undo
Lost for the first time
Scared for the first time
Gravity feels like an undertow pulling me down

Daveed Diggs - Kiss the Girl

[ Featuring Awkwafina, Jacob Tremblay ]

Percussion
Strings
Winds
Words

There you see her
Sitting there across the way
She don't got a lot to say
But there's something about her
And you don't know why
But you're dying to try
You wanna kiss the girl

Yes, you want her
Look at her, you know you do
Possible she wants you too
Use your words, boy
And ask her
If the time is right
And the time is tonight
Go on and kiss the girl

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
My, oh, my
Look like the boy too shy
Ain't gonna kiss the girl
Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Ain't that sad?
Ain't it a shame?
Too bad, he's gonna miss the girl

Hey, pull it back
Scuttle, pull it back

Now's your moment (ooh, ooh, ooh)
Floating in a blue lagoon (ooh, ooh)
Boy, you better do it soon
No time will be better
She don't say a word
And she won't say a word
Until you kiss the girl
Kiss the girl
Kiss the girl

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Don't be scared (sha-la, sha-la-la)
You got the mood prepared
Go on and kiss the girl (whoa, whoa)
Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Don't stop now (sha-la, la-la-la)
Don't try to hide it how
You wanna kiss the girl
Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Float along (sha-la, la-la-la)
And listen to the song
The song say kiss the girl
Sha-la-la-la-la-la
The music play
Do what the music say
You gotta kiss the girl
You've got to kiss the girl
Why don't you kiss the girl?
Come on and kiss the girl
Go on and kiss the girl

Awkwafina - The Scuttlebutt

[ Featuring Daveed Diggs ]

Hey, wake up, wake up, wake up!
What?
Hey, have you not heard the scuttlebutt?
Your butt?
No, the gossip! The buzz!
The who-said-what-who-does-that, yeah, the Scuttlebutt!

Well, I was flying over land and sea
An ear to the ground
Then I came flying here for you to see
And hear what I found
Remember the swamp?
Remember my song in the swamp?
When I was like
"Womp, chicka womp-womp, chicka womp-womp"
I remember

Well, ever since
The what's his name?
The guy with the hair and the shirt
The Prince?
Yeah, the Prince! Has been droppin' hints
He wants to
You know when humans dress all nice like they're penguins?
Throw rice for the pigeons?
They're tryin' to blow up the pigeons
But those are just urban legends
I know a lot of really fat pigeons

Scuttle, I
Will you just listen, Sebastian?
I got the scuttlebutt
Hurry up!
You'll be like, "What?"
When I drop the scuttlebutt!
Okay, now huddle up, buttercup

From the women who wash all the clothes
To the hunter who arrows the bows
The chatter all over the palace
Is that your Prince Eric is gonna propose
What?
To somebody nobody knows
They're saying he suddenly chose
Who?
Who? You sound like an owl
I'll bet it's the kid with the new set of toes
No!
Oh, yes! Anything goes, who'd ever guess
Our little Ariel's marriage material?
Time for the rice and the dress
And the what do ya call it?
The thing with the lips when they press?
I don't have lips, I have a beak
So I guess I could give you a peck on the cheek?

I don't believe it
Say, you're awfully quiet
Oh, yeah
So what now?
Let's go, let's go, let's go!

Can you believe the scuttlebutt?
Get dressed child!
You're welcome for the scuttlebutt
We gotta lotta work to do before sundown
S-s-s-s-s-scuttlebutt, scuttlebutt, hey
Oh, please let this be the day

Let's go, let's go
Let's go!
We got it!
The gossip! The buzz!
The who-said-what-who-does-that-yeah-I-told-you-so
Let's go, let's go, let's go!
We gotta go before the sun go down
What?
Gotta get her ready for the big showdown
Right!
Go ahead and get her out of bed
And get her ready for the wedding
Sun is setting, so we can't slow down
The scuttlebutt!
