The ocean is deep (Havet är djupt [Under the sea])

English translation

The ocean is deep

[Sebastian:]
- Ariel, listen to me, life on land is too dry
- But the ocean is deep, you dare to have fun among the waves
 
[Sebastian:]
You think that in your neighbours water
The seagrass is always green
You dream about swimming up there
It's not worth it
No, look around in the bay
Nothing is shallow here
You can't be disappointed
That is clearly obvious
 
The ocean is deep
The ocean is deep
Down at the bottom
It's great here
Watch and be delighted
Up on land there's just alot of running around
Labour and hard work for nothing
But under the surface
There you can float
The ocean is deep
 
[Sebastian with choir:]
Fishes are happy down here
[Sebastian:]
You can swim frivolously here
[Sebastian with choir:]
But the fishes on land are sad
[Sebastian:]
They swim in a bowl there
But the fishes in the bowls are happy
[Sebastian with choir:]
It'll be alot worse later on
[Sebastian:]
On day when the family is hungry
[Big fish]
-"Who ends up on the plate"
[Sebastian:]
Oh no
 
The ocean is deep
The ocean is deep
No one can get us
Skin us and have us
In a ragout
People have recipes in some book
But we can flee from both a fishing lure and a hook
No problem
We'll just escape
The ocean is deep
[Choir:]
The ocean is deep
[Sebastian:]
The ocean is deep
[Choir:]
The ocean is deep
[Sebastian:]
And in this area
We hold the rhythm
Count1 to seven
[Choir:]
Count to seven-en-en
[Sebastian with choir]
Without crashing into a point of sail
A ray turns and disturbs
You got to hear
Put down an ear
The ocean is deep
 
[Sebastian:]
A lizard on flute
You're pleased to play
On harp and bass
On a party for carps
Three breams play saxophone
A salmon is drumming over there
A zander likes parties and soul
[Another fish]
- Yes
 
[Sebastian:]
A sturgeon has a good ear
And the strings bring
Two lings on a ball
And the black ruff crows
A smelt and a herring
Can't stay still
A pufferfish keeps puffing
 
Interlude
 
The ocean is deep
[Choir:]
The ocean is deep
[Sebastian:]
The ocean is deep
[Choir:]
The ocean is deep
When a pilchard
Removes his mute damper
Then listen and be pleased
[Choir:]
Now listen and be pleased
[Sebastian with choir:]
And why be on a crowded beach
We have a gang that has formed a band here
Clams that raps
Shells that claps
The ocean is deep
 
A darn good groove
The sock on the carpet
The ocean is deep
 
Snails that honks
No one wants to stop
Life at the bottom
Doesn't it seem great
We have it nice here
The water is wet here
The ocean is deep
 
  • 1. A play on words, "räkan" means "the shrimp" but sounds like "räkna" which means "count"

Havet är djupt [Under the sea]

[Sebastian:]
- Ariel, lyssna på mig, ett liv på land är för torrt,
- Men havet är djupt, i vågorna vågar man ha lite kul
 
[Sebastian:]
Du tror att i grannens vatten
är sjögräset alltid grönt
Du drömmer att simma upp dit
