Under the Sea

Tuesday, June 25, 2019

Two shows I actually watched as a kid, but no theme song lyrics. So, since both are set under the sea ...

Under the Sea, Disney’s The Little Mermaid

The seaweed is always greener
In somebody else?s lake
You dream about going up there
But that is a big mistake

Just look at the world around you
Right here on the ocean floor
Such wonderful things surround you
What more are you looking for

Under the sea, under the sea
Darlin? it?s better
Down where it?s wetter,
Take it from me

Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devotin?
Full time to floatin?
Under the sea

Down here all the fish are happy
As off through the waves day roll
The fish on the land ain?t happy
They're sad 'cause they're in a bowl

But fish in the bowl is lucky
They're in for a worser fate
One day when the boss gets hungry
Guess whos goin? be on the plate(uh-oh)

Under the sea, under the sea
Nobody beats us
Fry us and eat us in fricasee
We what the land folks love to cook
Under the sea we off the hook
We got no troubles life is the bubbles

Under the sea, under the sea
Since life is sweet here
We got the beat here naturally
Even the strugeon an? the ray
They get the urge an? start to play
We got the spirit
You got to hear it under the sea

The newt play the flute
The carp play the harp
The plaice play the bass
And they're soundin sharp.
The bass play the brass
The chub play the tub
The fluke is the duke of soul

They ray he can play
He lings on the strings
He trout rockin? out
The blackfish she sings
The smelt and the sprat
They know where it?s at
An? Oh. That blowfish blow

Under the sea(under the sea)
Under the sea(under the sea)
When the sardine
Begin the beguine it?s music to me

What do they got, a lot of sand
We got a hot crustacean band
Each little clam here
Know how to jam here under the sea
Each little slug here
Cutin? a rug here under the sea

Each little snail here
Know how to wail here
That?s why it?s hotter under the water
Ya' we in luck here
Down in the muck here under the sea!!


Sea Hunt, 1958-61
Lloyd Bridges played Mike Nelson, a former U.S. Navy S.C.U.B.A. diver. He worked as a free-lance underwater rescuer, finder of the lost ocean things, and overall good guy. Since it’s really hard to talk underwater, Mike narrated many of the scenes. This was in the early days of SCUBA diving, so Mike would teach non-divers (and the audience) about SCUBA diving and saving the oceans.


Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, 1964-68
It was set in the near future, with the first 2 seasons set in the 70’s, the last 2 in the 80’s. More science than science, the nuclear submarine Seaview was officially for marine undersea research, but the secret mission actual was “to defend the planet from all world and extraterrestrial threats.” (WIKI)
