Just a Little Love

This was the first song of the Little Mermaid series, featured in the pilot episode A Whale of a Tale. This was their first musical scene in the animated series, and you can tell there's a great deal of effort put into the song itself, whicih I reckon one of the best of the series.

Just a Little Love is sung by Ariel to Spot the Baby Killer Whale upon their first meeting, and can be found in the Splash Hits compilation.

(printable version)

Ariel:
Poor little frightened baby

Flounder:
Baby?

Ariel:
Wandering on your own
You've been through a lot
Haven't you, Spot?


Poor Spot, where's your mother, where's your family?

Everyone needs a family
No one should be alone
Now Flounder and me
We're gonna be
The family you've never known


We have to take him home with us.

Flounder:
We have to - WHAT?!

Ariel:
Oh, Flounder, can't you see?

Just a little love
And he'll be good as new
In just a little while
Watch a smile come shining through

He's just a little scared
He needs a friend today
He needs a little love
How can I turn away?


He's singing! He sounds just like you!

Flounder:
Kinda.

Ariel:
See, he likes you! You'll be his big brother.

Flounder:
I don't want to be his big brother! I don't want to be his midnight snack, either. It won't work, Ariel!

Ariel:
Yes, it will.

Just a little love
That's how you begin
Showing him you care
Being there to tuck him in

Helping him to grow
Each and every day
Just a little love
Can go a long, long way
