Positoovity
"Positoovity" is a song from the Broadway musical The Little Mermaid. It is the opening of Act II and is sung by Scuttle, Sebastian and the Seagulls.

After Ariel has sold her voice for human legs, Scuttle and the Seagulls give the young mermaid a crash course on being human, the number one rule being to have confidence in herself and always keep a positive attitude. Before long they've got her on her feet and dancing.

LyricsEdit

SCUTTLE

Now look at me
You see this face
In terms of beauty I'm a basket case
And as for style and savoir faire
Well I guess there ain’t
A whole lot there
Yup, although perhaps
It makes no sense
I strut my stuff
With lots of confidence
Cause though I lack
And awful lot
There is one thing I got!
I got positoovity!
I got positoovity!
It gives me the zam
And the zow
And the yaddle laddle laddle
That’s why I walk
With a wiggle in my waddle
Cause once you’ve heard that word
There ain't nothing you can do
So let that positoovity
Work for you


SEBASTIAN
(spoken)
Positoovity? Why der's no such word.

SCUTTLE
(spoken)
Course there is in the dictionary right between popsuckle and prehysterical.
Believe you me I seen it work miracles!

(sung)
Now he's a shmoe

SEAGULL
Yo!

SCUTTLE
And he's a shlep

SEAGULL
Yeah?

SCUTTLE
And this one doesn’t
got the sharpest rep


SEAGULL
Squawk?

SCUTTLE
In fact all three
without a doubt
missed the day brains
were handed out


SEAGULL
But if he's no sage

SEAGULL
And he's no wiz

SEAGULLS
The whole world thinks
That we are geniuses
Cause all our screws
May be unscrewed
But dig our attitude


SCUTTLE AND SEAGULLS
We got positricity!

SCUTTLE
(spoken)
How 'bout you, huh?

SCUTTLE AND SEAGULLS
We got poositivity!

SCUTTLE
(spoken)
Just try it out, come on!

SEAGULL
It gives us the bing

SEAGULL
And the bang

SCUTTLE
And the yippee-dip-doodle

SCUTTLE AND SEAGULLS
That’s why we sounds
Like thers knowledge
In our noodle
And once you learned that word
There ain’t nothing you can do
So let that positricity


SCUTTLE
N-N-No, Positroocity!

SEAGULLS
Poositrocity
Work for you!


SEBASTIAN
(spoken)
Ariel, don't take advice from birdbrains.

SCUTTLE
Birdbrains?! Who you callin' birdbrains?!
We got natural talent, what iI like to call Gull-ability!


SCUTTLE AND SEAGULLS
So with the vip and the vap
And the ba-ba boo
You can flip any flap
Till your wish comes true
The tip is the tap
Into something that you believe


SCUTTLE
Cause with the zig and the zug
And the zig-zug-zing
There ain't nothing you can't be
You see it's really your perogative


SCUTTLE AND SEAGULLS
You simply can't think nogative

SCUTTLE
Then there’s you just sitting there
Smack down flat upon your derriere, Hey!
If thast the way you wanna be
Well you might as well be shrubbery
So stand right up, and dust your seat
And walk real tall upon
Your own two feet
And sure you’ll trip
And make mistakes
But you’ve got what it takes!


[Tap break]

SEAGULL
You go, gull!

SCUTTLE AND SEAGULLS
And now you know that word
There ain’t nothing you can't do


SCUTTLE
So go get some posilicity
You can bet on positricity
And just let that positrinity
No, positroonity. Poositonity?
Is it? Pardon, that is it!


SEAGULLS
Positoovity!

SCUTTLE AND SEAGULLS
Positively work for you!
