Under the Sea

(The Little Mermaid)

The seaweed is always greener
In somebody else’s lake

You dream about goin’ 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
Darlin’ 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 day roll

The fish on the land ain’t happy
They sad ’cause they in a 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 (uh-oh)

Under the sea, under the sea
Nobody beat us
Fry us and eat us in fricasee

We what the land folks love to cook
Under the sea we off the hook

We got no troubles life in the bubbles

Under the sea, under the sea
Since life is sweet here
We got the beat here naturally

Even the strugeon 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 the soul
(yeah)

They ray he can play
He lings on the strings
He trout rockin’ 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)
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
Cutin’ 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!!

The Vegemite Song

We’re happy little Vegemites
As bright as bright can be.
We all enjoy our Vegemite
For breakfast, lunch, and tea.
Our mother says we’re growing
stronger every single week.
Because we love our Vegemite.
We all adore our Vegemite.
It puts a rose in every cheek!

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah

From “Song of the South”
Lyrics: Ray Gilbert

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay,
My, oh, my, what a wonderful day.
Plenty of sunshine headin’ my way,
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay!

Mister Bluebird’s on my shoulder,
It’s the truth, it’s “actch’ll”
Everything is “satisfactch’ll.”

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay,
Wonderful feeling, wonderful day!

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay,
My, oh, my, what a wonderful day.
Plenty of sunshine headin’ my way,
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay!

Mister Bluebird’s on my shoulder,
It’s the truth, it’s “actch’ll”
Everything is “satisfactch’ll.”
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay,
Wonderful feeling, feeling this way!

Mister Bluebird’s on my shoulder
It’s the truth, it’s “actch’ll”
Everything is “satisfactch’ll.”
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay,
Wonderful feeling, wonderful day!

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly,
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly.
Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a spider,
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly.
Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a bird,
How absurd to swallow a bird.
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly.
Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a cat,
Imagine that, she swallowed a cat.
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly.
Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a dog,
Oh, what a hog to swallow a dog.
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly.
Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a goat,
She just opened her throat and swallowed a goat!
She swallowed the goat to catch the dog,
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly.
Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a cow,
I’m not sure how she swallowed a cow.
She swallowed the cow to catch the goat,
She swallowed the goat to catch the dog,
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly.
Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a horse.
She’s dead, of course!

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

Performed by: Mary Poppins (Julie Andrews)
Written by: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it
Is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough
You’ll always sound precocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Because I was afraid to speak
When I was just a lad
My father gave me nose a tweak
And told me I was bad
But then one day I learned a word
That saved me aching nose
The biggest word I ever heard
And this is how it goes:

Oh, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it
Is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough
You’ll always sound precocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay
So when the cat has got your tongue
There’s no need for dismay
Just summon up this word
And then you’ve got a lot to say
But better use it carefully
Or it may change your life
One night I said it to me girl
And now me girl’s my wife!

She’s supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater

Peter, Peter, pumpkin-eater,
Had a wife and couldn’t keep her;
He put her in a pumpkin shell,
And there he kept her very well.

Down by the bay

Down by the bay,
Where the watermelons grow.
Back to my home,
I dare not go.
Because if I do,
My mother will say,
“Did you ever see a bear combing his hair?”
Down by the bay.

Down by the bay,
Where the watermelons grow.
Back to my home,
I dare not go.
Because if I do,
My mother will say,
“Did you ever see a goose kissing a moose?”
Down by the bay.

Down by the bay,
Where the watermelons grow.
Back to my home,
I dare not go.
Because if I do,
My mother will say,
“Did you ever see a whale with a polka dot tail?”
Down by the bay.

Down by the bay,
Where the watermelons grow.
Back to my home,
I dare not go.
Because if I do,
My mother will say,
“Did you ever see a pig wearing a wig?”
Down by the bay.

Where the watermelons grow,
Back to my home,
I dare not go.
Because if I do,
My mother will say,

Where the watermelons grow,
Back to my home,
I dare not go.

Where the watermelons grow,
Back to my home,
I dare not go.
Because if I do,
My mother will say,

Down by the bay.

Down by the bay,
Where the watermelons grow,
Back to my home,
I dare not go.
Because if I do,
My mother will say,
“Did you ever have a time-
when you couldn’t find a rhyme?”
Down by the bay.
