Poor Unfortunate Souls

The only way to get what you want is to become a human yourself.

Can you do that?

My dear, sweet child... that's what I do.
It's what I live for.
To help unfortunate merfolk, like yourself.
Poor souls with no one else to turn to.

I admit that in the past I've been a nasty
They weren't kidding when they called me, well, a witch.
But you'll find that nowadays,
I've mended all my ways,
Repented, seen the light, and made a switch.
True? Yes.

And I fortunately know a little magic.
It's a talent that I always have possessed.
And here lately, please don't laugh,
I use it on behalf
Of the miserable, lonely, and depressed.

Poor unfortunate souls
In pain, in need.
This one longing to be thinner,
That one wants to get the girl.
And do I help them?
Yes, indeed.

Those poor unfortunate souls,
So sad, so true.
They come flocking to my cauldron
Crying, "Spells, Ursula, please!"
And I help them!
Yes, I do.

Now, it's happened once or twice...
Someone couldn't pay the price,
And I'm afraid I had to rake 'em 'cross the coals.
Yes, I've had the odd complaint,
But on the whole I've been a saint
To those poor unfortunate souls.

Have we got a deal?

If I become human, I'll never be with my father or sisters again.

But... you'll have your man, heh heh.
Life's full of tough choices, isn't it? Heh heh.
Oh, and there is one more thing.
We haven't discussed the subject of payment.

But I don't have-

I'm not asking much, just a token really, a trifle!
What I want from you is . . . your voice.

But without my voice, how can I-

You'll have your looks, your pretty face.
And don't underestimate the importance of body language, ha!

The men up there don't like a lot of blabber.
They think a girl who gossips is a bore!
Yes, on land it's much preferred for ladies not to say a word,
And after all, dear, what is idle prattle for?
Come on, they're not all that impressed with conversation.
True gentlemen avoid it when they can.
But they dote and swoon and fawn
On a lady who's withdrawn.
It's she who holds her tongue who get's a man.

Come on you poor unfortunate soul.
Go ahead!
Make your choice!
I'm a very busy woman, and I haven't got all day.
It won't cost much, just your voice!
You poor unfortunate soul.
It's sad but true.
If you want to cross the bridge, my sweet,
You've got the pay the toll
Take a gulp and take a breath,
And go ahead and sign the scroll
Flotsam, Jetsam, now I've got her, boys.
The boss is on a roll!
This poor unfortunate soul!

Beluga sevruga
Come winds of the Caspian Sea
Larengix glaucitis
Et max laryngitis
La voce to me

Now, sing!

Keep singing!

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Yep. That's right everybody! We're going back to the 1900's :) ...1937 to be exact.

What's so great about this movie?

WELLLLL... It was only the FIRST full-length animated movie EVER. Like E.V.E.R.! Not just Disney's first animated movie. This was the FIRST.

Its music may not be the BEST MUSIC EVER... but it is unforgettable :)

It has won FIVE awards. Including the Academy Honourary Award and the New York Film Critics Circle Special Award.

AND it's still a great movie that everyone knows (even though it was released about 78 years ago)!
