"The Beautiful Briny" is a song written by the Sherman Brothers from Bedknobs and Broomsticks. Professor Emelius Browne (David Tomlinson) and Miss Eglantine Price (Angela Lansbury) sing it while in the Naboombu Lagoon and getting comfortable there. It is included in the video, Disney Sing Along Songs: You Can Fly! and some of the Codfish Ball scenes were shown during the song At the Codfish Ball in Disney Sing Along Songs: Under the Sea.

Lyrics

Mr. Brown: How pleasant, bobbing along
Bobbing along on the bottom of the beautiful briny sea
What a chance to get a better peep
At the plants and creatures of the deep
We glide
Far below the rolling tide
Serene
Through the bubbly blue and green

It's lovely, bobbing along
Bobbing along on the bottom of the beautiful briny sea
What if the octopus
The flounder and the cod
Think we're rather odd
It's fun to promenade
Brown and Price: Bobbing along, singing a song
On the bottom of the beautiful briny sea

(Instrumental Bridge)

Miss Price: It's lovely, bobbing along
Bobbing along on the bottom of the beautiful briny sea
Brown and Price: What a chance to get a better peep
At the plants and creatures of the deep
Miss Price: It's grand
When you're dancing on the sand
Mr. Brown: Each glance
Bubbles over with romance

Brown and Price: It's lovely, bobbing along
Bobbing along through the water where we get along swimmingly
Far from the frenzy
Of the frantic world above
Miss Price: Two beneath the blue
Mr. Brown: Could even fall in love
Brown and Price: Bobbing along, singing a song
On the bottom of the beautiful briny sea

Bobbing along, singing a song
On the bottom of the beautiful briny
Shimmering shiny, beautiful briny sea

Trivia

  • The song was supposed to be used in Mary Poppins for the compass sequence but it was cut at the final print.
