Let the Good Shine Out Lyric Music Video

"Let the Good Shine Out" is a song performed by Kermit the Frog as the finale of the 1996 Muppet Treasure Island sing-along video, as he tries to convince Clueless Morgan, Polly Lobster, and Mad Monty to become good rather than bad. His song doesn't convince them, but Kermit always has hope.

Music

When Kermit came up with an idea to convince those pirates to becoming good, the idea was to sing the song to them before he commands the viewer to sing along to get the pirates to sing and then runs off. As Kermit starts singing after the Black Dog scratches his shirt, he stares at him while he moves around him and growls at him then we move onto the spot where Mr. Curly Twirly and Old Tom pushing Walleye Pike with one of the noises playing the sound effect that comes from the printer. Three pirates turn around and we go onto the three other pirates dancing while making noises and one of them yawns before Kermit takes off. Two native pigs stare at Kermit after dancing to the center of the screen and as he sings, they look at each other and they dance along with him. We zoom and pan away from the drum being played by a pig while the other two dance back and forth and Kermit side dances and jumps. We hear Clueless Morgan singing "Oh" a few times and Polly smacks him on one of the phrases and Morgan chuckles afterwards. Back at the spot where Kermit left off at, they tilt dance before Old Tom taps Kermit once and put his hand in Walleye Pike's mouth while Mr. Curly Twirly feels that pike. We see Kermit getting kissed by a girl pirate and we head over to the pig tribes humming with one moment with a pig playing the drums. Two pigs left and then right and immediately after Kermit runs to the five pirates at the grass, they sing along with him. Mad Monty states that he gets bored without a pistol, Morgan thinks it feels right to be wrong and three pirates say they've been pirates for a long time. Moments after Kermit sings his statements, the girl pirate comes and sings the rest of the phrases where they should let the good shine out. The same scene of the Pig tribes is played and two pirates hum while four sing. After all pirates there sing together, we transit to the scene where Polly swims at the ocean and Morgan, Monty, and Kermit sing on the boat with a seagull on it. On the wrap up, everyone sings together near the grass and trees. Kermit then sings the final lines "Let the Good Shine Out" and the song finishes with the pirates cheering.

Lyrics

All of us have good inside
A longing to be kind and fair
Some of us just let it hide and act as if it weren't a there
Let me tell you friends
a policy that I recommend Let the good shine out
Shine for you and me
If everybody let the good shine out
how bright the world would be
Let the good shine out
Join the jubilee
If everybody let the good shine out
we'd live in harmony
Oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh Woah-Woah-Woah
You will have a peaceful glow
when you are nice to those you meet
Feel so happy head to toe and sing a song of life so sweet
I believe it's true
when you give love that comes back to you
Let the good shine out
Shine for you and me
If everybody let the good shine out
how bright the world would be
Let the good shine out
Join the jubilee
If everybody let the good shine out
we'd live in harmony
Ooh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh Woah-Woah
Without my pistol and my sword
I'm afraid, I might get bored
It feels so right to be so wrong
We've been pirates for so long
Now don't you worry don't you fret
I can make you all forget that awful life you'll leave behind
Think of all the treasure you will find if you just
Let the good shine out
Shine for you and me
If everybody let the good shine out
how bright the world would be
how bright the world would be
Let the good shine out
Join the jubilee
If everybody let the good shine out
we'd live in harmony
Let the good shine out
Let the good shine out
Shine for you and me
Shine for you and me
If everybody let the good shine out
If everybody let the good shine out
Ohhh! how bright the world would be
Ohh
Let the good shine out
Shine for you and me
If everybody let the good shine out
we'd live in harmony
we'd live in
Haaaaaaaaaarmonyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
Let the good shine out!
