Down to the Sea

This is the opening song for The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea, where Ariel and her human family and entourage present the baby Princess Melody to Ariel's merfamily. It's a joyful, celebratory song, setting the tone for the film. Many thanks to Joahn for the lyric correction!

(printable version)

Ariel:
You are my world, my darling
And what a wonderful world I see
You are the song I'm singing
You're my beautiful Melody

Eric:
Darling, we better be going

Ariel:
Look at her, isn't she glowing?

Eric:
She looks divine
And you look exquisite
But look at the time

Ariel:
Couldn't be, is it?

Grimsby:
The crew is awaiting your orders

Captain:
We're sailing away from our borders

Sailor 1:
Steady, oh, steady

Sailor 2:
Ahoy there, they're coming!

Grimsby:
Trumpeters ready
Drummers start drumming

Ariel:
Down to the sea we go
Down to a world I know
There's never been, not ever before
A child born of sea and shore

Human chorus:
Down to the sea we go
Back to the world we know
A journey to bless a princess to be
Under the sun and under the sea

Fish and other sea creatures:
Ariel's coming... (x12)

Sebastian:
What's all this big commotion
That's spreading through the ocean?
From sea to shining sea
There is no hesitating
Today we're celebrating
Ariel's Melody

Today when Triton's daughter
Comes back into the water
We're gonna have a spree
The boat's nearer now
I think I hear her now
Ariel's Melody

Merpeople chorus:
Up from the sea we rise
Up to the world of skies
There's never been, not ever before
A child born of sea and shore

Up from the sea we rise
Up to the world of skies
Forever to be together as one
Under the sea and under the sun

Ariel:
This is your world, my darling
One world, the land and sea
My hope for you for always
Is that your heart will owe part of me

Human & Merpeople Chorus:
Back to the sea we go (Up from the sea)
Back to the world we know (Up from the sea)
Together we come forever to be
Under one sun, the land and the sea
