You Got to be You

This song's trying to be an Under the Sea moment and though it doesn't quite hit that mark, it does have its moments with the flashy visuals and fish-related lyrics. It was sung by Sebastian during the Spring Celebration in the pilot A Whale of a Tale, which Spot the Killer Whale crashes. This song can also be found in the Splash Hits compilation.

(printable version)

When I was but a schoolboy
I dreamed I would grow tall
And man, it made me crabby
That a crab could be so small

With this I tell my teacher
She say, "But don't you see?
Each and every creature
Is exactly how they should be"

She said we all are special
From jellyfish to king
We all do different things
And with that she start to sing

You got to be you
I got to be me
It's simple but true
What else could you do?
Who else could you be?

You got your own style
Now let it come through
And remember no matter what
You got to be you

Skatefish got to skate
Stingrays got to sting
Catfish got to purr
And Sebastian got to sing
Seahorse got to ride
Flounder got to play
And whale got to make the trouble
All the livelong day

So why should you be gloomy
That you're too big or small
The sea is very roomy
And there's plenty room for us all

You heard my little story
Now let it be your guide
Just treat yourself with pride
You'll be more than satisfied

You got to be you
I got to be me
I'll try to be clearer
Look in the mirror
What do you see?

You see what I mean
Now let us review

Let's see now...
Some may be tiny
Some got the claws
Gills may be shiny
Sharks got the jaws
Down in the briny
Those are the laws
And that is why we sing

You got to be you
I got to be me
It's simple but true
What else could you do?
Who else could you be?

You got your own style
Now let it come through
And remember no matter what
You got to be you

You got your own voice
You've got to rejoice
You got to be you
Don't be so blue
