Daddy's Little Angel

Daddy's Little Angel is a song from The Little Mermaid (musical) for Ursula and Flotsam and Jetsam.

The song introduces the characters to the audience as she formulates her plan of revenge to take over the ocean while giving her own take on the history between her and her brother King Triton, and her jealousy of her older sisters and hunger for attention from her passive father.

The song replaced previous Ursula Intro, I Want the Good Times Back.


When I was a kid
A squirmy little squid
I was number seven born of seven little girls
Seven little pearls
Pretty as could be
Perfect to a “T”
All except for me!

Ugly as a slug
Hideous to hug
Daddy found me loathsome and disgusting I could tell
They all got adored
Me I got ignored
Plus to ease his guilt a magic shell!

Ursula:Used to belong to my papa Poseidon! Full of lethal hexes and spells, my little sea snakes! The perfect gift for a spurned, dangerously unstable child.

Most of all daddy loved one sister
So feminine, so fresh, so fine
I would watch as he hugged and kissed her
And I hated her guts from the bottom of mine!

Daddy's little angel
Daddy's little sweet
Such a little frilly thing
She was seaweed and spice
And everything nice
And I dreamed and I schemed
That I'd put her on ice!

Daddy's little angel
How could I compete
With a girl so heaven-sent
Just one spell from the shell
And back to heaven she went!

Next what did I do?
Daughter number two
Throw her in a whirlpool where I left her spinning round
Daughters three and four
Washed up on the shore
Sadly five and six were never found!

And it didn't make my father love me!

Flotsam and Jetsam

But it didn't bring me down, oh no!

Flotsam and Jetsam
No, no!

It was sad
Though when dad
Caught that very, very lethal flu

Flotsam and Jetsam
So true!

With no sisters in the line above me
I inherited the whole damn show

Was it fun?

Such a ton!
So much fun
I forgot
That my dad also had an additional tot
Yes a son
Still age one
But I figured, "So what!"
Till that snot-nosed little baby grew!

He grew!

And grew!

And grew!

Ursula, Flotsam, & Jetsam
He grew
Into you know who!

Ursula: Triton, a male heir! As soon as he came of age, he stole everything from me! Every ocean! Every lake! Every pond! Every puddle! So, my dear Flotsam and Jetsam, it's time I took revenge. Revenge on what he loves most!
Flotsam and Jetsam: Ariel!

So now he has a child,

A sweet

And kind of wild!

And she has him wrapped around her flimsy little fin
She will be our in
She'll be what we use
Bait he can't refuse
There's no way we'll lose!

Daddy's little angel

Daddy's little pet

Daddy's little priceless gem!

So sassy

So smart

The key to his heart

Ruin her as it were,
It will tear him apart

Ursula, Flotsam, & Jetsam
Daddy's little princess
She's the one to get

Flotsam and Jetsam
Now just take it from a pro

Get daddy's little angel,
Trust me fellas
I know

Flotsam and Jetsam
Daddy's little angel

Yes indeedy
I know

Flotsam and Jetsam
Daddy's little angel

Trust me fellas
I know
