This is the opening tune for The tiny Mermaid, and as with most other man movie opening songs, is brief but sets the ton of the movie. Sung by the sailors aboard Eric"s ship as they undertaking the seas, and it"s nice method to contrast the cynicism/superstition of the human human being with the mystique of the merworld.
