Marina Del Rey sings this villain song in The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning. This is one of those songs where I didn't even realise it was a song until they hit the chorus, that's how unmusical it is. It's more "spoken" than actually sung, and could've qualified for the most boring musical number in the entire The Little Mermaid franchise if it weren't for the hilarious "fashion show" interlude in the middle. For a villain song it's rather plain, but the visuals do make up a bit where the tune is blah.

(printable version)

Benjamin I need to find a clue
To get myself Sebastian's job
To stage a little coup

A straw to break the camel's back
A teeny dent, a tiny crack
A quiver or a quake
What I need is one mistake
Just one mistake

Sebastian, oh, better be on his guard
'Cause I have some electric chums
And they'll be looking very hard

A straw to break Sebastian's back
A teeny dent, a tiny crack
A dowdy double take
What I need is one mistake
Just one mistake

Then hello, world
It's Marina Del Rey
I'm the new attaché
Or maybe more
Oh, I want so much more

Hello, world
I'm the belle of the ball
I'm greatest of all the loyal royal big shots

Work it, Marina
Pouty, sassy
From the engine to the chassis
Got to, got to
Get it, get it
Gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta have it

A straw to break the camel's back
A teeny dent, a tiny crack
A mini mighty break
What I need is one mistake
