At the Mermaid's Ball

This is a smooth, gentle song from the Songs from the Sea album that sounds like something from a 20s ballroom dance where Ariel is preparing for the Mermaid's Ball. Jodi Benson's vocal acrobatics are very prominent in this one.

(printable version)

I suppose I ought to be getting ready for the ball. I wonder if humans have anything like the mermaid's ball.

At the ball I'll dance like never before
Spinning up and down and round on the floor
When the music plays it's so entrancing
At the mermaid's ball when I go dancing

It's a lovely night, the seabreezes blow
Dancing by the light of starfish a-glow
Dreaming I'm in love, it's so enchanting
At the mermaid's ball when I go dancing

Pretty mermaids wearing seaflowers
Of green and pink and blue
Whirling round and round in circles
With their partners two by two

As the grand orchestra plays
Romantic songs of yesterday
We will dance the night away

Dreaming I'm in love, it's so entrancing
At the mermaid's ball when I go dancing
At the mermaid's ball when I go dancing
Dancing, dancing, dancing, dancing, ooh...
