"Sing a New Song" is a song in The Little Mermaid TV series, in the episode, "Message in a Bottle".

Lyrics

Simon: Why do all the flounder flee

Everytime they look at me?

Try, but I just don't fit in

I only make crustaceans cringe.

Though I thought I had a smile worth sharing

I don't know why I scare the herring

I'm so lonely, sad and blue

What's a monster to do?

Ariel: You've got to sing

A happier song

It's time to change that same old tune

You've got to move on

Pick yourself up

Brush off your scales

Get that old tired

Whale of a tail

Tapping along

Sing a new song.

So come out of your shell

And get into the swim

There's a wonderful world

Waiting for you to jump in.

Just say goodbye to the dark and gloomy

Come outside where it's bright and roomy

Try your smile on someone new

And watch what it can do.

You've got to sing.

Simon: I've got to sing.

Ariel: A happier song.

Simon: A happier song.

Ariel & Simon: It's time to change that same old tune.

Ariel: You've gotta move on.

Simon: I've gotta move on, yeah

Ariel & Simon: Pick yourself up

Brush off your scales

Get that old tired

Whale of a tail

Tapping along

Sing a new song.
