Arise

Arise is the opening song for the album Sebastian from The Little Mermaid, setting the tone for the Sebastian-centric album as he tries to wake everybody up.

(printable version)

Sebastian:
Good morning! I say, good morning! Man, why is it so quiet around this place? Why does everybody behave like the little oysters in their beds? Oh, Flounder, there you are!

Flounder:
Ssh, Sebastian! Be quiet. Ariel is still sleeping.

Sebastian:
But this is no time for that, child! To be asleep in the deep. This is a beautiful brand new day. She should wake up before it's gone. C'mon let's put some motion in this ocean. Aww man, this day is too good to miss.

Arise, arise
Wake up and face the morning sun
Let the sunlight open your eyes
Got to realise your time has come to
Arise, arise
Wake up and face the morning sun
Let the sunlight open your eyes
Got to realise your time has come

In the morning
Everything arise in the morning
Got to realise in the morning
Got to realise it's a new day

And when the shadows moving in the night
Fade away with the morning light
And when the shadows moving in the night
Fade away with the morning light

You'll arise, arise
Wake up and face the morning sun
Let the sunlight open your eyes
Got to realise your time has come to
Arise, arise
Wake up and face the morning sun
Let the sunlight open your eyes
Got to realise your time has come

In the morning
Everything arise in the morning
Got to realise in the morning
Got to realise it's a new day

Now the fish, he mention when the sea get rough
He say, "When the going gets tough
Yeah, you got to show your stuff"
You know he really don't bluff

Arise, arise
Wake up and face the morning sun
Let the sunlight open your eyes
Got to realise your time has come to
Arise, arise
Wake up and face the morning sun
Let the sunlight open your eyes
Got to realise your time has come
To arise

In the morning
Everything arise in the morning
Got to realise in the morning
Got to realise it's a new day

And when the shadows moving in the night
Fade away with the morning light
And when the shadows moving in the night
Fade away with the morning light

You'll arise, arise
Wake up and face the morning sun
Let the sunlight open your eyes
Got to realise your time has come to
Arise, arise
Cows are rising
The dogs are rising
The little fishies are rising
The birds are rising...

Oh look, you see that, Flounder? Everybody is getting awake.

Flounder:
But what if everybody doesn't want to be awake? What if Ariel wants to sleep in?

Sebastian:
Aww man, for such a little fish you have such a big worry.
