Fish Are Friends, Not Food is a song from the Disney's Animal Kingdom attraction, Finding Nemo: The Musical. Named after the catchphrase said by the sharks in the 2003 animated film, it is heard during the part where Bruce, Anchor, and Chum say their pledge about not eating fish after making friends with Marlin and Dory in the shipwreck territory where the sharks live. However, throughout the song after Marlin and Dory fight over P. Sherman's Diver Mask, Bruce suddenly smells Dory's blood, causing him to go on a rampage much to Anchor and Chum's worry that Bruce is going out of control as the other two sharks attempt to control him fearing that he broke his promise not to eat fish, to which the song ends during the part where the mines in the minefield explode, scaring off the sharks as Marlin and Dory manage to escape from the minefield and the sharks.

Lyrics

Bruce, Anchor, and Chum:
Fish are friends
Fish are friends
Fish are friends
Not food

Though we have long sharp teeth
We're nice sharks underneath
We know that fish are friends, not food

Chum:
(spoken)
Well, sometimes you know.

Bruce, Anchor, and Chum:
Sure we could eat ya whole
But we have self-control
We know that fish are friends, not food

Marlin:
(spoken)
I'd like to be your friend!

Bruce:
The stress of life in the ocean
Will lead to emotional eating

Anchor and Chum:
Yes it will

Bruce:
When you need help gettin' through it
And kelp just won't do it
Don't start feeding

Bruce, Anchor, and Chum:
Swim to our meeting

Oh yes, we've seen the light
Each day we fight the fight
To curb our appetite
And change our attitude

Bruce:
Fish are friends

Anchor:
Fish are friends

Bruce:
Fish are friends

Chum:
Fish are food

Bruce and Anchor:
No!

Bruce, Anchor, and Chum:
Fish are friends, not food!

Bruce:
(spoken)
Like we rehearsed, gentlemen
Do do do do do do......

Marlin:
Look! That mask belonged to the diver that took my son!

Dory:
Harpo?

Marlin:
Nemo. What do these markings mean? I can't read human.

Dory:
Hey, look! Sharks! I bet they can help!

Marlin:
No no no! Dory!

Dory:
Hey fellas? Guys?

Marlin:
No, Dory!

Dory:
If you could just...

Marlin:
Gimme it!

Dory:
I know what to...

(snap)
Ow!
Marlin:
Oh, I'm sorry, is you're nose bleeding?

Dory:
You really clocked me there

Bruce:
Ooooh, that's good!

Anchor and Chum:
Intervention!

Bruce:
I need a little taste

Anchor and Chum:
No!

Bruce:
Why let 'em go to waste?

Anchor and Chum:
BRUCE!
Remember fish are friends, not food!

Anchor:
(spoken)
Remember the steps!

Anchor and Chum:
He's really not so bad
He never knew his dad

Bruce:
I need some food
I need some food
I need some food!

Marlin:
There's no way out!

Dory:
(mispronouncing the word "Escape") Es-ca-pay! That's funny, it's spelt the same as "escape"

Marlin:
Dory...you can read?
Dory:
I can read? I CAN READ!

Marlin:
Well read the mask! Uh-oh...

Bruce:
I've got you in my sight

(Dory: AAAHHH!!!)
I'm having fish tonight

(Dory: This way!)

Anchor and Chum:
Remember fish are friends
Remember fish are friends
Remember fish are friends...

Bruce:
Swim away! Swim away!
Anchor and Chum:
Not food....

(explosion)
