"Kiss the Girl" is a love song from the Disney 1989 animated film The Little Mermaid. It was composed by Alan Menken, with lyrics by Howard Ashman. In the movie, Samuel E. Wright performs it. The song was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Song, along with the song "Under the Sea" from the same film in 1990.

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.

Lyrics

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
you wanna kiss the girl

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
(sing with me, now)

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
My, oh, my!
Look like the boy too shy
He ain't gonna kiss the girl

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Ain't that sad?
Ain't it a shame? Too bad
He gonna miss the girl

(Instrumental Bridge)

Now's your moment
Floating in the blue lagoon
Boy, you better do it soon
No time will be better (Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya)
She don't say a word
And she won't say a word
Until ya kiss the girl

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Don't be scared (sha-la-la-la-la-la)
You got the mood prepared
Go on and kiss the girl (whoa, whoa)

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Don't stop now
Don't try to hide it how
You wanna kiss the girl (whoa, whoa)

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Float along
And listen to the song (WA WA WA WA LAAAA!!)
Song say kiss the girl (whoa, whoa)

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Music play
So what the music say
You gotta kiss the girl

Kiss the girl

Ohhhhhh
Kiss the girl
Kiss the girl

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
you wanna kiss the girl

Yes, you want her
Look at her, you know you do
It's 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
(Kiss the girl)

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
My, oh, my!
Looks like the boy's too shy
Ain't gonna kiss the girl

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Ain't that sad?
It's such a shame, too bad
You're gonna miss the girl
Go on and kiss the girl
(Kiss the girl)

Now's your moment
Floating in the blue lagoon
Boy, you better do it soon
No time will be better
She don't say a word
And she won't say a word
Until you kiss the girl
(Kiss the girl)

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
My, oh, my!
Looks like the boy's too shy
Ain't gonna kiss the girl

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Ain't that sad?
It's such a shame too bad
You're gonna miss the girl

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Don't be scared

Trivia

  • 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.
