The Sea Kingdom

This is the uplifting opening number of the Songs from the Sea album, and one of my favourite The Little Mermaid songs EVER, and I'm including everything that's ever been released in the entire franchise. It sounds quite like a big, bold Broadway opening number and put a bright smile on my face the very first time I heard it. This track pretty much sets the stage for Ariel's world... She's curious about the land of humans while all the other merfolk are left wondering why. Thanks to Daniel for the lyric corrections!

(printable version)

King Triton:
Ariel? Ariel! You've been to the surface again, haven't you?

Ariel:
Please listen father
Take note I'm very well
I meant to cause no trouble

King Triton:
Now look here, Ariel

Ariel:
The sun is shining
Over the ocean waves
It warms the land above us
The children laugh and play

I have dreams
Of life above

King Triton:
What of the danger?
You could have fallen prey
The human world is savage
Now look, you must obey

Ariel's sisters:
Excuse us, father
However hard you try
She'll look beyond the ocean
We'll never know just why

She has dreams
Of life

Chorus:
Life above the sea kingdom
How could you ask for any more than what we have
Life within the sea kingdom
You can swim the seven seas
In happiness and peace
Oh life here in the sea kingdom

Ariel:
I can't contain
My secret thoughts
Of life above
The deep blue sea
High above
The ocean waves
There is a life
That calls me

I have dreams
Of life

Ariel's sisters:
A day of swimming
A day of having fun
She'd rather be on dry land
Up playing in the sun
We bow to father
He rules with majesty
The merfolk here are happy
We all enjoy the sea

She has dreams
Of life

Chorus:
Life above the sea kingdom

King Triton:
How could you ask for any more than we have

Chorus:
Life within the sea kingdom
You can swim the seven seas
In happiness and peace
Life within the
Life within the
Life within the sea kingdom
