Reprinted below for your viewing and singing pleasure, are the lyrics to one of the two group songs written by workshop participants at Centrum’s 2007 Waterworld program.
———

We Belong to the Sea:
 
Waterworld 2007 participants with Gina Salá, choreography by participants with Christian Swenson
 
CHORUS:

We Belong to the Sea
Swimming in harmony
Friendship is the key
We belong to the sea
 
VERSES:
1) Hey little waves the ocean is big
And its so much fun under the sun
Don’t be scared cause I won’t eat you
I belong to the ocean too.
 
2) (sung by whales)
Hey little waves the ocean is big and its so much fun under the sun
don’t be scared cause I won’t eat you
we belong to the ocean too.
 
3) And the plankton who just floats along would also like to sing this song
though its very small it plays its part
and the whale loves it with all its heart
We belong to the sea….
 
4) Fishy’s dancing day and night
up and down til they start to fight
crabbies sitting down to tea
they ate a biscuit and said yippee!
 
5)Tentacles moving one by one
They wave hello till the day is done
Happiness is all around
Til a nudibranch starts turning brown.
 
6) A giant sea turtle swam by me
How old is she? 100 plus three!
She lays her eggs under the beach
Just beyond the raccoon’s reach
But she belongs to the sea!
 
7) There is a wave I’d like to ride
But on the bottom I like to hide
The sharks and fish they look for me
So I just sit here happily!
 
8) I dream one day I’ll get to ride
But til then I’ll sit and hide
I know one day I’ll get my chance
To ride a wave in my underpants

Cause we belong to the sea!
 
9) I am just a happy turtle
I love my home it is so fertile
The shrimp keep it O so clean
The cleanest home you’ve ever seen.
10) The octopus too have their home
here and their they like to roam
I like the clam and fish you see
My home’s the best in the deep blue sea!
 
11) (shakers…)
Greetings friends its only me
If you look out you’ll surely see
Mount Baker shakin’ shaker’s of snow
And Rainier’s in the band you know
Yes, we belong to the sea.
 
ENDING

Chorus 1

We Belong to the Sea
Swimming in harmony
Friendship is the key
We belong to the sea.

2nd Chorus Ending:

We belong to the sea
Like a big family floating free
Though we swim drift or float
The ocean is our home and we know it forever will be
We belong to the sea
Yes we belong to the sea
We belong to the sea!
