Kiss the Girl

"Kiss the Girl" is a song from the Disney animated film The Little Mermaid. It was composed by Alan Menken and the lyrics were written by Howard Ashman. In the movie, Samuel E. Wright performs it. The song was nominated Academy Award for Best Song with the song Under the Sea.

Midway through the film, Ariel has already been turned into a human by Ursula, but she can no longer speak. 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.

Lyrics Edit

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

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.)


My, oh, my!

Look like the boy too shy

He ain't gonna kiss the girl


Ain't that sad?

Ain't it a shame?

Too bad

He gonna miss the girl

(Instrumental Bridge)

Now's your moment

Floating in the blue lagoon

Boy, you better do it soon

No time will be better

(Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya)

She don't say a word

And she won't say a word

Until ya kiss the girl


Don't be scared (sha-la-la-la-la-la)

You got the mood prepared

Go on and kiss the girl (whoa, whoa)


Don't stop now

Don't try to hide it how

You wanna kiss the girl (whoa, whoa)


Float along

And listen to the song


Song say kiss the girl (whoa, whoa)


Music play

So what the music say

You gotta kiss the girl

Kiss the girl
