"In The Big Blue World" is a song from Disney's Animal Kingdom musical adaptation of Finding Nemo.

The song follows Nemo and Marlin as they prepare for Nemo's first day of school. Nemo is excited to explore the beautiful and mysterious world around him, yet Marlin is still a little on the frightening side to let his only son leave the safety of their own home.

The song is also used in another Finding Nemo-themed attraction, The Seas with Nemo & Friends at Epcot.

Lyrics

Marlin
Now what's the first thing we do before we get out of here?

Nemo
The ocean's not safe, so we have to check if the coast is clear,

Marlin
(spoken) Right, we go out, then back in,
And then we go out and then back in,
And one more time, out, and the back in,
And sometimes, if you want to do it four time...

Nemo
Come on!

Marlin
Okay,

Nemo
(sung) Hey, Dad! Hey, Dad!
Wouldn't it be cool,
If I maybe met a shark when I'm at school?

Marlin
No!

Nemo
Or an angelfish?
Is it true that they have wings?

Marlin
I don't think so,

Nemo
Can you believe there are so many things?
In the big blue world
I'm gonna go explore!
In the big blue world
That I've never seen before

So many creatures
Swimming round the sea
In the big blue world
And all of them are waiting for me!

Marlin
(Spoken) That's what I'm afraid of!

Nemo
Hey dad, do you know how old sea turtles are?

Marlin
Sea turtles? I don't know.

Nemo
Sandy Plankton said they could live to be a hundred!

Marlin
Well, if I ever meet one, I'll ask!

Nemo
Me too!
Maybe I'll meet a sea-turtle and a shark!

Marlin
(sung) I know you're excited,
but let's take a little pause
Sharks are not our friends Nemo,
Haven't you seen Jaws?

Nemo
What?

Marlin
You don't want to meet a swordfish,
You don't want to meet a whale

Nemo
I want to meet a whale!

Marlin
You need me around to watch your tail!

In the big blue world,
You're just a little fish

Nemo
Aw, dad!

Marlin
In the big blue world
You'll be seen as a tasty dish

Nemo
No...

Marlin
You mean so much to me,
I don't know what I would do,
In the big blue world,
If something should happen to you!

Nemo
No need to worry dad,
I'll be okay

Marlin
I'm scared you'll end up
As a clown fish filet!

We can turn right around,
We can wait one more year?

Nemo
Don't be so boring dad!
I belong here!

(spoken) Wow!
Isn't it beautiful!

Marlin
Nemo!

Nemo
Come on Dad!

Marlin
Hold my fin!
Hold my fin!

Ensemble
(sung) Take a look around you
The ocean's alive!
In the big blue world,
It's time for you to arrive!

Marlin
(spoken) Is this where we meet his teacher?

Reef Dads
Mm hmm Sure is

Tad
What's wrong with his fin?

Reef Dads
Be nice, it's his first day!

Marlin
He was born with it kids,
We call it his lucky fin!

Nemo
Dad!

Mr. Ray
(sung) Let's name the zones, the zones, the zones,
Let's name the zones, of the open sea!

Kids
(spoken) Mr. Ray!

Mr. Ray
Climb aboard Explorers,
Who's this?

Nemo
I'm Nemo

Marlin
He's got a little fin,
I find if he gets tired just give him a little break,
Ten, fifteen minutes...

Nemo
Dad!

Marlin
(sung) Nemo, you're such a special kid!
Want me to go with you?
I'd feel better if I did,

Remember everything I told you,

Nemo
Dad, I'll be alright.

Mr. Ray
Climb aboard explorers,
Hold on tight!

Are you ready?

Nemo
Yes, I'm ready!

Mr. Ray
Really ready?

Marlin
I don't think I'm ready...

Mr. Ray and Nemo
We're ready to go!

All
In the big blue world! (Ready to go)
In the big blue world! (Ready to go)
Oooh-Oooh-Oooh
The big blue world...

Reef Dads
(spoken) You're doing really well for a first timer!
I remember I was a mess when my kid first went to the drop off!

Marlin
Well what are you gonna do, you gotta let 'em go sometime...
The Drop Off!
