The Scuttlebutt Lyrics
Scuttle: Hey, wake up, wake up, wake up!
Scuttle: Hey, have you not heard the scuttlebutt?
Sebastian: Your butt?
Scuttle: No, the gossip! The buzz!
The who-said-what-who-does-that, yeah, the Scuttlebutt!
Well, I was flying over land and sea
An ear to the ground
Then I came flying here for you to see
And hear what I found
Remember the swamp?
Remember my song in the swamp?
When I was like
“Womp, chicka womp-womp, chicka womp-woooomp”
Sebastian: I remember
Scuttle: Well ever since!
The what’s his name?
The guy with the hair and the shirt—
Sebastian: The Prince?
Scuttle: Yeah, the Prince! Has been droppin’ hints
He wants to
You know when humans dress all nice like they’re penguins?
Throw rice for the pigeons?
They’re tryin’ to blow up the pigeons
But those are just urban legends
I know a lot of really fat pigeons—
Sebastian: Scuttle, I—
Scuttle: Will. You. Just. Listen!
Sebastian, I got the scuttlebutt!
Sebastian: Hurry up!
Scuttle: You’ll be like, “What?!”
When I drop the scuttlebutt!
Okay, now huddle up, buttercup
From the women who wash all the clothes
To the hunter who arrows the bows
The chatter all over the palace
Is that your Prince Eric is gonna propose
Scuttle: To somebody nobody knows
They’re saying he suddenly chose
Scuttle: Who? You sound like an owl
I’ll bet it’s the kid with the new set of toes
Scuttle: Oh, yes! Anything goes, who’d ever guess
Our little Ariel’s marriage material
Time for the rice and the dress
And the whaddayacall it
The thing with the lips when they press?
I don’t have lips, I have a beak
So I guess I could give you a peck on the cheek?
Sebastian: I don’t believe it
Scuttle: Say, you’re awfully quiet
So what now?
Sebastian: Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go!
Scuttle: Can you believe the scuttlebutt?
Sebastian: Get dressed child!
Scuttle: You’re welcome for the scuttlebutt
Sebastian: We gotta lotta work to do before sundown
Scuttle: S-s-s-s-s-scuttlebutt, scuttlebutt, hey
Sebastian: Oh, please let this be the day
Scuttle: Let’s go, let’s go
Sebastian and Scuttle:
We got it!
The gossip! The buzz!
Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go!
Sebastian: We gotta go before the sun go down
Gotta get her ready for the big showdown
Scuttle: Go ahead and get her out of bed
Sebastian and Scuttle:
And get her ready for the wedding
Sun is setting, so we can’t slow down
