Please Don't Wake the Whale

I'm pretty sure that this song was meant for the series episode A Whale of a Tale, for the scene where Ariel is trying to get Spot to sleep outside the palace. Of course the pilot already had two other songs, "Just a Little Love" and "You Got to be You", so I guess a third song would have made the episode a little cramped. It's a cute lullaby of a song, and it's fun to hear Ariel insisting everyone be quiet so that Spot will be able to get his shute-eye.

Although the song never made it to the screen, it can be found in the Splash Hits compilation.

(printable version)

Ssh please don't wake the whale
Ssh please don't wake the whale
Don't jiggle his fins
Don't tickle his tail
Ssh don't wake the whale

I told him a story and kissed him good night
I gave him a drink then I turned out the light
The water is calm and the day is complete
Oh don't make a sound 'cos he's almost asleep

Ssh please don't wake the whale
Ssh please don't wake the whale
Don't jiggle his fins
Don't tickle his tail
Ssh don't wake the whale

His spout has stopped spouting, his big eye is closed
His fins are fatigued and he's starting to doze
All creatures who sleep on the deep ocean floor
All snooze in the sea, how sweetly they snore

Ssh please don't wake the whale
Ssh please don't wake the whale
Don't jiggle his fins
Don't tickle his tail
Ssh don't wake the whale

Ssh don't wake the whale
Ssh don't wake the whale
Don't jiggle his fins
Don't tickle his tail
Ssh don't wake the whale
Ssh don't wake the whale
