Sing a New Song


Ariel, always the optimist, tries to get Simon the shy sea monster (voiced by Brian Cummings) to come out from his cave and befriend the people that fear him, and she convinces him via this song, which was in the episode Message in a Bottle. I quite like this one, because Ariel is so bubbly and positive! This song can be found in the Splash Hits compilation.

(printable version)

Simon:
Why do all the flounder flee
Everytime they look at me?
Try, but I just don't fit in
I only make crustaceans cringe

Though I thought I had a smile worth sharing
I don't know why I scare the herring
I'm so lonely, sad and blue
What's a monster to do?


Ariel:
You've got to sing
A happier song
It's time to change that same old tune
You've got to move on
Pick yourself up
Brush off your scales
Get that old tired
Whale of a tail
Tapping along
Sing a new song

So come out of your shell
And get into the swim
There's a wonderful world
Waiting for you to jump in

Just say goodbye to the dark and gloomy
Come outside where it's bright and roomy
Try your smile on someone new
And watch what it can do

You've got to sing

Simon:
I've got to sing

Ariel:
A happier song

Simon:
A happier song

Ariel & Simon:
It's time to change that same old tune

Ariel:
You've got to move on

Simon:
I've got to move on, yeah

Ariel & Simon:
Pick yourself up
Brush off your scales
Get that old tired
Whale of a tail
Tapping along
Sing a new song
