the beautiful briny

Watch on disneymoviesandfacts.tumblr.com

How pleasant, bobbing along
Bobbing along on the bottom of the beautiful briny sea
What a chance to get a better peep
At the plants and creatures of the deep

We glide
Far below the rolling tide
Serene
Through the bubbly blue and green

It’s lovely, bobbing along
Bobbing along on the bottom of the beautiful briny sea
What if the octopus
The flounder and the cod
Think we’re rather odd
It’s fun to promenade
Bobbing along, sing a song
On the bottom of the beautiful briny sea

Look!

It’s lovely, bobbing along
Bobbing along on the bottom of the beautiful briny sea
What a chance to get a better peep
At the plants and creatures of the deep

It’s grand
When you’re dancing on the sand
Each glance
Bubbles over with romance

It’s lovely, bobbing along
Bobbing along through the water where we get along swimmingly
Far from the frenzy
Of the frantic world above
Two beneath the blue
Could even fall in love
Bobbing along, singing a song
On the bottom of the beautiful briny sea
Bobbing along, singing a song
On the bottom of the beautiful briny, 
Shimmering shiny, beautiful briny.

Beautiful Briny Sea (From Disney’s Bedknobs and Broomsticks)

A sequence known as “The Magic Compass”, consisting of four songs, was dropped from Mary Poppins in preproduction. One of those songs, “The Beautiful Briny”, later resurfaced in Bedknobs and Broomsticks. The melody for another song from this sequence, “The Land of Sand”, was used for “Trust in Me (The Python’s Song)” in The Jungle Book, using completely different lyrics.
