The Scuttlebutt

Lyrics from The Little Mermaid (Live-Action)

Ariel, Scuttle and Sebastian

Hey, wake up, wake up, wake up!


Hey... Have you not heard the scuttlebutt?

Your butt?

No, the gossip! The buzz!

The who-said-what-who-does-that, yeah, the

Well, I was flying over land and sea
An ear to the ground
Then I came flying here for you to see
And hear what I found
Remember the swamp?
Remember my song in the swamp?
When I was like
Womp chicka womp womp chicka womp woooomp

I remember

Well, ever since
The what's his name
The guy with the hair and the shirt

The prince?

Yeah, the prince has been dropping hints
He wants to
You know when humans dress
All nice like they're penguins
Throw rice for the pigeons
They're tryin' to blow up the pigeons
But those are just urban legends
I know a lot of really fat pigeons

Scuttle, I

Will you just listen
Sebastian, I got the

Hurry up!

You'll be like "what?
When I drop that scuttlebutt
Okay, now huddle up, buttercup
From the women who wash all the clothes
To the hunter who arrows the bows
The chatter all over the palace
Is that your Prince Eric is gonna propose


To somebody nobody knows
They're saying he suddenly chose


Who? You sound like an owl!
I'll bet it's the kid with the new set of toes!


Oh, yes! Anything goes, who'd ever guess
Our little Ariel's marriage material
Time for the rice and the dress
And the whaddayacall it
The thing with the lips when they press
I don't have lips, I have a beak, so I guess I
Could give you a peck on the cheek

I don't believe it

Say, you're awfully quiet
Oh, yeah
So what now
Let's go, let's go, let's go

Can you believe the scuttlebutt?

Get dressed, child

You're welcome for the scuttlebutt

We gotta lotta work to do before sundown

S-s-s-s-s-scuttlebutt, scuttlebutt, hey

Oh, please let this be the day

Let's go, let's go, let's go
We got it
The gossip, the buzz
The who-said-what-who-does-that-yeah-I-told-you-so
Let's go, let's go, let's go

We gotta go before the sun go down

Gotta get her ready for the big showdown


Go ahead and get her out of bed

And get her ready for the wedding
Sun is setting, so we can't slow down - the scuttlebutt
