Template:Featured Template:Infobox Song

"Kiss the Girl" is a love song from the Disney 1989 animated film The Little Mermaid. It is performed by Samuel E. Wright as Sebastian and centers on the romance between Ariel and Prince Eric.

Summary[]

Midway through the film, Ariel has already been turned into a human by Ursula, but she can no longer speak, as she exchanged her voice to become human. If Ariel can't get her true love Eric to kiss her before her three days have passed, she will turn back into a mermaid and belong to Ursula. Sebastian, Flounder, and Scuttle try to get Eric to kiss Ariel so that she can be a human permanently, while the two sit in a rowboat in a lagoon. Sebastian makes the suggestion that Eric does want to kiss Ariel, but he is too shy to do so, and that he should go ahead and "kiss the girl" to see if she likes him, too. So Sebastian and the lagoon residents play this song to get Eric in the mood to kiss Ariel.

Lyrics[]

Sebastian:
First we got to create the mood.
Percussion.
Strings.
Winds.
Words.

There you see her
Sitting there across the way
She don't got a lot to say
but there's something about her
And you don't know why
But you're dying to try
you wanna kiss the girl

Prince Eric:
Did you hear something?

Sebastian: (with chorus joining in)
Yes, you want her
Look at her, you know you do
Possible she want you too
There is one way to ask her
It don't take a word
Not a single word
Go on and kiss the girl
(sing with me, now)

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
My, oh, my!
Look like the boy too shy
He ain't gonna kiss the girl

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Ain't that sad?
Ain't it a shame? Too bad
He gonna miss the girl

(instrumental bridge (In the film version, there's this bit of dialog))

Prince Eric:
You know, I feel really bad not knowing your name. Maybe I can guess. Is it, uh, Mildred? (Chuckles) Okay, no. How about Diana? Rachel?
Sebastian:
(Whispers) Ariel. Her name is Ariel.

Ariel? (After she nods) Ariel? (Ariel nods again) Well, that's kinda pretty. Okay. Ariel.

Trivia[]

  • The song was nominated for the Template:WikipediaLink, along with the song "Under the Sea" from the same film in 1990; the latter won.
  • In the first week of April 2007, Ashley Tisdale's version of "Kiss the Girl" managed to debut on the Billboard's Template:WikipediaLink at #16 (which is equivalent to #116). One week later, the song debuted on the Template:WikipediaLink at #81.
  • During the Kingdom Keepers book Disney at Dawn, Jessica, trapped in the sewers of the Tiger exhibit, manages to use her iPod to play Kiss the Girl and Under the Sea over Animal Kingdom's music speakers. This helped the other Kingdom Keepers find her (Kiss the Girl was used to identify it was Jessica, and Under the Sea because her hiding spot was under the "C" on the map).
  • In an episode of Phineas and Ferb, this scene of the movie is parodied with Candace and Jeremy.
  • A parody was also performed on the ABC show Galavant.
  • The song makes a cameo in Descendants 2 as Uma waltzes with a mesmerized Ben.
  • At the 1990 Academy Awards, Geoffrey Holder performed this song.
