Fathoms Below

TIMONIERE
I’ll tell you a tale of the bottomless blue

MARINAI
An’ it’s hey to the starboard, heave ho!
Brave sailor, beware, ‘cause a big ‘uns a-brewin’
Mysterious fathoms below!
Heave ho!

TIMONIERE
I’ll sing you a song of the king of the sea

TIMONIERE E MARINAI
An’ it’s hey to the starboard, heave ho!

TIMONIERE
The ruler of all of the oceans is he

MARINAI
In mysterious fathoms below!
Fathoms below, below!
From whence wayward westerlies blow!
Where Triton is king
And his merpeople sing
In mysterious fathoms below!

PRINCIPE ERIC
Isn’t this perfection, Grimsby? Out on the open sea, surrounded by nothing but water

GRIMSBY
Oh, yes, it’s simply…delightful…

PRINCIPE ERIC
The salt on your skin
And the wind in your hair
And the waves as they ebb and they flow!
We’re miles from the shore
And guess what – I don’t care!

GRIMSBY
As for me, I’m about to heave ho!

TIMONIERE
Back to work!

MARINAI
I’ll sing you a song of the king of the sea
An’ it’s hey to the starboard, heave ho!
The ruler of all of the oceans is he
In mysterious fathoms below!

GRIMSBY
King of the sea? Why, that’s nautical nonsense – nothing but a superstition!

TIMONIERE
The king of the ocean gets angry
An’ when he gets angry, beware!
I’m tellin’ ya, lad, when King Triton is mad
How the waves’ll buck, rock to and fro!

TIMONIERE E MARINAI
Hold on, good luck, as down you go!

PRINCIPE ERIC
What is that? Do you hear something?

GRIMSBY
Milord, please. Enough sea-faring! You’ve got to get back to court –
to honor your father’s dying wish and
take up his crown!

PRINCIPE ERIC
That’s not the life for me, Grimsby—
There it is again!

TIMONIERE
We ought to head back to shore, your majesty.

GRIMSBY
Indeed, we should!

PRINCIPE ERIC
Not while I’m captain. Now follow that voice! To the ends of the earth if we have to!

TIMONIERE
Aye-aye, Captain!

TIMONIERE E MARINAI
There’s mermaids out there in the bottomless blue
An’ it’s hey to the starboard, heave ho!
Watch out for ‘em, lad, or you’ll go to your ruin
Mysterious fathoms below!
