You Can Get It If You Really Want

Samuel E. Wright as Sebastian covers Jimmy Cliff's song You Can Get It If You Really Want, another relaxed reggae song about positive thinking, which Sebastian tries to teach to Ariel and Flounder. This song was featured in the Sebastian from The Little Mermaid album.

Additional thanks to Rob for some corrections.

You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try, try and try
You'll succeed at last

That's right, man
Now listen

Trying hard, you must not fear
Win or lose, you're gonna get your share
You've got your mind set on a dream
You can get it, though hard it may seem now

You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try, try and try
You'll succeed at last


See, you gotta put a lot effort into things, man. And then you'll make it! Now listen to this.

Rome was not built in a day
Opposition will come your way
But the harder the battle, you see
Is the sweeter the victory

You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try, try and try now
You'll succeed at last

That's it

You can get it if you really want, yes sir
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try, try and try
You'll succeed at last


That's right. If you've got a little tiny dream, all you have to do is think about it, work on it every day, and you'll get it, man.

You can get it if you really want, you understand?
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want, oh yeah
You can get it if you really want, sing along now
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want...

What a great party, the whole kingdom is here. The lanternfish are so colourful.

Flounder:
Wow, looks to me an eel's up there.

That octopus is a great drummer.

Flounder:
Ouch, I just wish those swordfish will watch where they are swimming

Sebastian:
Listen up everybody, clear the ocean floor, it's time for dancing and prancing!
