"Human Stuff" is a song from the stage musical The Little Mermaid. It is sung by Ariel, Scuttle, and the chorus of seagulls.

When the show was revamped after closing on Broadway, the song was deleted from the score.

Lyrics

ARIEL

A dinglehopper?

SCUTTLE

Oh, these babies are fantabulous. Absolutely indispensary. When it comes to dinglehoppers, I'm a regular
encyclopoodia!


Say thatcha wanna have a hairdo
Like the folks who live up there do
That'll flap their wigs!


GULL 1

Flop their wigs!

GULL 2

Flap!

GULL 3

Awwwk!

SCUTTLE

Well, you'll look absolutely dandy
If you use one of these handy
Little thingmajigs!


GULL 1

Thingmabobs.

GULL 2

Jigs!

GULL 1

Bobs!

GULL 3

Awwwk!

SCUTTLE

Pick up the dinglehopper, just like so
Twirl it the way I'm twirling now!
Give it a little yank, and there ya go!
You're what the call "the dog's meow"!


GULLS

Wonderful stuff!

GULL 3

Awwwk!

GULLS

That human stuff!
Can't get enough -


GULL 3

Awwwk!

GULLS

Of human stuff!
And we are the authority -
No need for us to bluff!
Because we're great and explanatin'
Human stuff!


ARIEL

(spoken)

(holds pipe) What's that?

SCUTTLE

(spoken)

A snarfblatt!

ARIEL

(spoken)

Wow!

SCUTTLE

Back when the world was prehistorial
People sat as still as coral
Flat upon their bumps


GULL 1

On their runts!

GULL 2

Bunks!

GULL 3

Awwwk!

SCUTTLE

There they would be, not even thinkin'
Bored to death and barely blinkin'
Way down at the dumps


GULL 1

On the dumps!

GULL 2

At!

GULL 1

On!

GULL 3

Awwwk!

SCUTTLE

Then they invented snarfblatts, just by chance
Suddenly life was la-di-da!
Snarfblatts're what you use to make folks dance
Give it a blow, and then - voila!


GULLS

Wonderful stuff!

GULL 3

Awwwk!

GULLS

That human stuff!
If you're a buff -


GULL 3

Awwwk!

GULLS

Of human stuff!

GULL 1

It's marvable!

GULL 2

Stupendible!

SCUTTLE

Completely A-OJ!
Which sounds absurd, but take my word -


GULLS

That's what the humans say!

SCUTTLE & GULLS

Sensible stuff
That human stuff!
None of it fluff -
Not human stuff!
And heaven knows
Since we're the pros
From us, you'll get no guff


SCUTTLE

And once you've got a who's-ma-gig -

GULL 1

A thing-ma-what -

GULL 2

A watch-ma-gig -

SCUTTLE

That's all you need to bring you up to snuff!

GULLS

Right up to snuff!
With proper dinglehopper groomin'
Rest assured...you'll look real human!


SCUTTLE

We know, 'cause we know
Human stuff!
