For a Moment lyrics

Melody: What a totally cool feeling! Whee! Oh, excuse me. I'm so sorry, ma'am.

Okay, get a grip, get the hang of this flipper
It's like slipping two feet into one big huge slipper
Which way is left, and which way is right
Oh now I'll be circling in circles all night
Oh, so this is forward no problem
I can't believe I can do this and more
To swin in the sea like I walk on the shore
Out of my shell not closed up like a clam
Look out sea, this is me, here I am

For a moment all of me is alive and at home in the sea
I'm swirling and twirling so graceful and grand
Not stubbing my toes, getting stuck in the sand

For a moment life is cool
I'm a splash in the world's biggest pool
This is more than my thoughts ever thought it could be
For a moment, just a moment, lucky me

If only for one moment, I could share with you all I know
The sea wouldn't be a mystery, but why did you have to go

Everything's newer, and brighter, and bluer
And truer to life than before, watch me soar
For a moment I can shine, got a grin and a fin that works fine
My fingers are wringly and I really don't care
If all of my curls have curled out of my hair

For a moment I can feel
All the dreams I've been dreaming are real
Wish my mother could hear it, the sea is my song
For a moment, just a moment, I belong

I will find you my darling, and the moment that I do
I will hold you close my Melody and sing the song of the sea with you

Ariel: Sing the song of the sea with you
Melody: For a moment, just a moment I belong
