This illustration reminded me of a collection of stuff a sea captain would find behind his lounge...I don't know why...don't ask silly questions.

I always sing this to myself (and sometimes, annoyingly, outloud, as I do not have a musical ear…so I am told…but they do say I improve greatly after the second glass of wine) whenever I see anything that belongs under the sea.  Now you can sing it, in bed, when you are trying to sleep tonight.

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 is you lookin’ for?

Under the sea
Under the sea
Darling 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 is happy
As off through the waves they roll
The fish on the land ain’t happy
They sad ’cause they in their bowl
But fish in the bowl is lucky
They in for a worser fate
One day when the boss get hungry
Guess who’s gon’ be on the plate

Under the sea
Under the sea
Nobody beat us
Fry us and eat us
In fricassee
We what the land folks loves 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 sturgeon an’ the ray
They get the urge ‘n’ 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 soundin’ sharp
The bass play the brass
The chub play the tub
The fluke is the duke of soul
(Yeah)
The ray he can play
The lings on the strings
The 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
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
Cuttin’ 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

Please Note: Clearly these lyrics belong to Darth Vader and Mickey Mouse, hope I haven’t offended the dark lord and the mouse, it is merely intended to entertain the subjects of the empire.

    I think that G. Lucas should stop with his STAR WARS on first film. Maybe on first trilogy as well.
    The story of Anakin Skywalker is just pathetic with WOW OMG AAAAAAA Yeag, so goooood special effects.
    This with Disney, I think it will be rubbish!
