There once was a girl,
Mad at the world,
Her lover was lost at sea.
So she stole a canoe,
Packed up some stew,
And set out to rescue me.
The weather got bad,
The waves swelled and crushed,
Capsized into the water did she.
She swam and she paddled,
She tired and she sank,
And was swept deeper and deeper beneath.
When she awoke, a magical land she was in,
Full of animals, and rivers, and trees.
Strange as it is and strange as it was,
She was in a bubble at the bottom of the sea.
Oh, where was she now,
Oh, where could she be,
She screamed out loud for me.
You crazy, lost human,
A red fox did speak,
You’re in a bubble at the bottom of the sea.
The animals did talk,
They held jobs and played cards,
It was heaven for fur and for wing.
The animals approached,
They snarled and they growled,
Surrounded by anger was she.
The girl was taken as prisoner and slave
To meet the king from under the sea.
The great cat named Hannibal,
And Luna, his queen,
The royalest pair has ever she seen.
The girl found out that the animals here
From the human land were refugees,
They came to escape and live their lives
Free from abuse and cruelty.
“Death to the human!” The animals did cry,
Revenge for their families and friends.
The girl kicked and she screamed,
She pleaded and begged,
She cried, “but I love all animals! Please!”
“That is enough,” a thunderous voice cried,
“I claim the girl for me.”
The animals did part!
And make way for the prince,
The most beautiful man she has seen.
And to her surprise,
She finally did find
The boy who got lost at sea.
Princess and Prince
To animals of all sorts,
Together they live wild and free.
Happy as clams in this magical world,
In a bubble at the bottom of the sea.
