For a Moment is a song sung by Melody and Ariel. Morgana has transformed Melody into a mermaid so she can be like her mother. She swims with a lot of sea creatures during the song. Ariel is worried she lost Melody and she doesn't know where to find her. At the end of the song, Melody cuts Ariel off by singing a big belted note. This song was featured in Disney Princess Sing-Along Songs: Enchanted Tea Party. It was the grand finale because of Melody's big belted note. It is included in princess albums like Disney Princess: The Ultimate Song Collection, Disney's Princess Collection: Once Upon a Dream, and Disney Princess Music Collection: Live Your Story. The song was later covered by Jasmine Cephas Jones and Phillipa Soo, and was later included in Disney Broadway Essentials: Princess Edition.
Melody: 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?
Well, 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.
Look out sea, 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'm a 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!
Ariel: 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?
Melody: Everything's newer, and brighter, and bluer, and truer to life than before...
Watch me soar!
For a moment, I can shine, got a grin and a fin that works fine.
