‘Under the sea’

 

 Under the sea

Sea, sea, sea, sea, sea, sea.

Let’s dive and swim with sea animals.

Sea, sea, sea, sea, sea, sea.

You can swim and play with sea animals.

 

Under the sea, the ocean.

This is home with coral reefs.

Under the sea, the ocean.

There’re families of fish.

Hello! Jellyfish look like umbrellas.

Hello! Octopuses with no backbones.

Hello! White sharks with razor sharp teeth.

Hello! Seahorses that make a heart.

Here we go!

Sea, sea, sea, sea, sea, sea.

Let’s dive and swim with sea animals.

Sea, sea, sea, sea, sea, sea.

You can swim and play with sea animals.

 

Under the sea, the ocean.

This is home with coral reefs.

Under the sea, the ocean.

There’re families of fish.

 

Hello! Turtles swim very fast.

Hello! Mr. Crabs that pinch all day.

Hello! Scallops that open and shut.

Hello! Starfish that open clams.

Sea, sea, sea, sea, sea, sea.

Sea, sea, sea that’s the sea!

(Track 2 & 13)

 With vocals

Without the vocals

 

Verse 1 – Grade 1:

Stella the starfish, tell us your story

How did you come here, where are you from?

You look so lonely, where is your family?

You look so sad. Where do you belong?

 

Stella:

I was up in the bay

Where I often would play.

But a crashing wave hit me

And washed me away.

 

Verse 2 – Stella:

Then as I tumbled and I couldn’t see and

Bubbles were rushing over my head.

When the wave passed I found myself holding

On to a conch shell on the sea bed.

 

Grade 1:

So the magical shell

Has come here as well.

Though your story is sad,

We are sure we can help

All: Stella the starfish…

Stella: Please will you help me?

All: Stella the starfish

Stella: Where is my family?

All: Stella the starfish…

Stella: Please will you help me?

K2 SONG – ‘Look at our Colors’ (Tracks 7 and 18)

With vocals

Without vocals

 

K2: Look at our colors, our wonderful colors.

The ocean’s our home, but it’s hard to believe.

Maybe we fell from a beautiful rainbow

Like splashes of paint dripping into the sea.

ALL: Blue and purple, violet and green.

Surely we’re the most colorful fish you’ve ever seen.

 

K2: Look at our colors, our wonderful colors.

So bright and so cheerful, the other fish smile.

Even at night in the light of the moonbeams

We glisten and shine every nautical mile.

ALL: Blue and purple, violet and green.

Surely we’re the most colorful fish you’ve ever seen.

 

K2: Blue and purple, violet and green.

Dazzling yellow, crimson and cream.

Gold and silver, aquamarine.

Surely we’re the most colorful fish you’ve ever seen.

Sid the Shark & Grade 1 SONG – Sid the Shark (Tracks 8 & 19)

With vocals

Without vocals

 

Verse 1

Sid: Down at the bottom of the deep blue sea,

Someone is calling, calling for me.

If they have travelled to my cave beneath

It must be important. I’d better take my teeth.

 

Chorus

All: Being a shark has many advantages.

Fishies and folks tend to keep away.

But with the job comes responsibility.

Sid the Shark will save the day!

 

Verse 2

Sid: Down at the bottom of the deep blue sea,

I can hear, I can taste, I can smell, I can see.

I know what you’re thinking and where you’re from.

Electrical signals tell me what’s going on.

Chorus again – All sing

With vocals

Without vocals

 

All: They swam through the coral reef…

They passed the rainbow fish…

They did not stop snapping at the turtle…

They ignored the clownfish…

Then Xianonming spotted a shipwreck…

…a shipwreck there at the bottom of the sea.

(All echo – whispered)

…at the bottom of the sea…

…at the bottom of the sea…

…at the bottom of the sea…
