Okay, get a grip 
Get the hang of this flipper, 
It's like slipping two feet into one big, huge slipper 
This way is left, but which way is right
Oh, now I'll be circling in circles all night 
Oh, so this is forward, no problem 
I can't believe I can do this and more 
To swim in the sea, like I walk on the shore 
Out of my shell, not closed up like a clam 
God see, this is me, here I am

For a moment, all of me is alive and at home in the sea 
I'm swirling and twirling so graceful and grand 
Not stubbing my toes, getting stuck in the sand 
For a moment, life is cool 
I'll splash in the world's biggest pool 
This is more than my thoughts ever thought it could be 
For a moment, just a moment 
Lucky me 

If only for one moment, I had shared with you all I know 
The sea wouldn't be a mystery 
Oh why did you have to go

Everything's newer, brighter and bluer 
And truer to life than before 
Watch me soar 

For a moment, I can shine 
Get a grin and a fin that works fine 
My fingers are wrinkly 
I really don't care, 
If all of my curls have curled out of my hair 
For a moment, I can feel 
All the dreams I'd been dreaming are real 
Wish my mother could hear it, the sea is my song 
For a moment, just a moment, I belong 

I will find you, my darling 
And the moment that I do 
I'll hold you close, my Melody 
And sing the song of the sea with you 
Sing the song of the sea with you
(For a moment, just a moment I belong)
