  +
  +
==Summary==
 
Midway through the film, [[Ariel]] has already been turned into a human by [[Ursula]], but she can no longer speak as she exchanged her voice to become human. If Ariel can't get her true love, [[Prince Eric|Eric]], to kiss her before her three days have passed, she will turn back into a mermaid and belong to Ursula. [[Sebastian]], [[Flounder]], and [[Scuttle]] try to get [[Eric]] to kiss [[Ariel]] so that she can be a human permanently, while the two sit in a rowboat in a lagoon. Sebastian makes the suggestion that Eric does want to kiss Ariel but he is too shy to do so, and that he should go ahead and "kiss the girl" to see if she likes him too, so he and the lagoon residents play this song to get Eric in the mood to kiss Ariel.

There are slight references to water and the undersea world in the video. As Andre performs a beautiful girl comes in carrying water. Andre sees her and is immediately taken with her. He helps her clean up the water as she spills it and follows her into the next room where they gaze at each other through a fishtank. Andre tries to kiss the girl but she backs away. He follows her again as she goes outside and they share a kiss.

The song's music video consists of a girl at a school dance. As she hangs out with her friends, she notices a boy repeatedly glancing at her.

"Kiss the Girl" is a love song from the Disney 1989 animated film The Little Mermaid. It is performed by Samuel E. Wright as Sebastian and centers the romance between Ariel and Prince Eric.

Summary

Midway through the film, Ariel has already been turned into a human by Ursula, but she can no longer speak as she exchanged her voice to become human. If Ariel can't get her true love, Eric, to kiss her before her three days have passed, she will turn back into a mermaid and belong to Ursula. Sebastian, Flounder, and Scuttle try to get Eric to kiss Ariel so that she can be a human permanently, while the two sit in a rowboat in a lagoon. Sebastian makes the suggestion that Eric does want to kiss Ariel but he is too shy to do so, and that he should go ahead and "kiss the girl" to see if she likes him too, so he and the lagoon residents play this song to get Eric in the mood to kiss Ariel.

There you see her
Sitting there across the way
She don't got a lot to say
but there's something about her
And you don't know why
But you're dying to try

Yes, you want her
Look at her, you know you do
Possible she want you too
There is one way to ask her
It don't take a word
Not a single word
Go on and kiss the girl

  • The song was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Song, along with the song "Under the Sea" from the same film in 1990; the latter won.
  • In the first week of April 2007, Ashley Tisdale 's version of "Kiss the Girl" managed to debut on the Billboard's Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles at #16 (which is equivalent to #116). One week later, the song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at #81.
  • During the Kingdom Keepers book Disney at Dawn, Jessica, trapped in the sewers of the Tiger exhibit, manages to use her iPod to play Kiss the Girl and Under the Sea over Animal Kingdom's music speakers. This helped the other Kingdom Keepers find her (Kiss the Girl was used to identify it was Jessica, and Under the Sea because her hiding spot was under the "C" on the map).
  • In an episode of Phineas and Ferb, this scene of the movie is parodied with Candace and Jeremy.
  • A parody was also performed on the ABC show Galavant.
  • The song makes a cameo in Descendants 2 as the song that Uma waltzes with a mesmerized Ben.
  • At the 1990 Academy Awards, Geoffrey Holder performed this song.
