"At the Codfish Ball" is a song sung by Shirley Temple in the 1936 film Captain January. It was featured in Disney Sing Along Songs: Under the Sea with most of the original lyrics removed and some new ones added.

In addition, the original 1936 song plays in the primetime special Disney's Living Seas, set to footage of classic Disney animation, such as Beach Picnic, Chips Ahoy, King Neptune, Hawaiian Holiday, How to Fish, No Sail, Pinocchio, and Peter Pan.

Lyrics

Come along and follow me
To the bottom of the sea
We'll join in the jamboree
At the Codfish Ball

Lobsters dancing in a row
Shuffle off to Buffalo
Jellyfish sway to and fro
At the Codfish Ball

Fin and Haddie lead the eels
Through an Irish reel
The catfish is a dancing man
But he can't can-can
Like the sardine can

Tunas truckin' left and right
Minnie's moochin', what a night
There won't be a hook in sight
At the Codfish Ball

(music interlude)

Each red snapper's looking dapper
Dressed up to the gills
The octopuses all have fun
As they wait to see
All the grunion run!

So come along and follow me
To the bottom of the sea
We'll join in the jamboree
At the Codfish Ball

At the bottom of the sea
Everyone is family
Come and join this jamboree
Called the Codfish Ball

All the swordfish love to play
Every clam is here today
To shell-e-brate this holiday
At the Codfish Ball

Shark and salmon play backgammon
‘Till the break of day
And each seahorse is here of course
This is the place
Where the plaice all play!

Yellowfin swim in and out
Dancing with each bass and trout
Water beetles twist and shout
At the Codfish Ball

So come along and follow me
To the bottom of the sea
We'll join in the jamboree
At the Codfish Ball

At the Codfish Ball!
