"Down to the Sea" is the first song in the film The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea. The song is sung by mainly Ariel and Sebastian, but is also sung by Prince Eric, Grimsby and both humans and merpeople.

During the song, it mainly explaining that Ariel is at long last returning to the sea with her husband and a few subjects so that both humans and merpeople together can celebrate the christening of Ariel and Eric's newborn daughter: Melody. While at the same time, Ariel is expressing how much she loves her daughter and is hoping that Melody will also share Ariel's love of the sea.


You are my world, my darling
What a wonderful world I see
You are the song I'm singing
You're my beautiful Melody

Darling, we better be going

Look at her, isn't she glowing?

She looks divine, and you look exquisite
But look at the time

Couldn't be, is it?

The crew is awaiting your orders

We're sailing away from our borders

Sailor 1:
Steady, boy, steady

Sailor 2:
Ahoy there, they're coming!

Trumpeters ready, drummers start drumming

Down to the sea we go
Down to a world I know
There's never been, not ever before
A child born of sea and shore

Human chorus:
Down to the sea we go
Back to the world we know
A journey to bless the princess to be
Under the sun and under the sea

Fish and other sea creatures:
Ariel's coming...

What's all the big commotion
That's spreading through the ocean?
From sea to shining sea
There is no hesitating
Today we're celebrating
Ariel's Melody

Today when Triton's daughter
Comes back into the water
We're gonna have a spree
The boat is nearer now
I think I hear her now
Ariel's Melody

Merpeople chorus:
Up from the sea we rise
Up to the world of skies
There's never been, not ever before
A child born of sea and shore
Up from the sea we rise
Up to the world of skies
Forever to be together as one
Under the sea and under the sun

This is your world, my darling
One world, the land and sea
My hope for you for always
Is that your heart will hold part of me

Human chorus:
Down to the sea we go

Merpeople chorus:
Up from the sea...

Human chorus:
Back to the world we know

Together we come forever to be
Under one sun, the land and the sea
