A Whale of a Tale

From the Disney movie

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

Music by Al Hoffman and Norman Gimbel

"A Whale of a Tale" is the only song featured in Disney's film 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. It was sung by Ned Land (Kirk Douglas). It was included in Disney Sing Along Songs: Under the Sea.

The song is first heard near the start of the film. It starts immediately after a conversation between Ned, Conseil, and Pierre Aronnax aboard the ship. Ned takes a guitar and steps onto the deck. It attracts the attention of several of the crewmen, who listen excitedly. It is immediately after Ned finishes it that the Nautilus is finally encountered.

While the full song is only performed once, it is frequently referenced throughout the film. After improvising a guitar out of a turtle shell, Ned is seen twice performing portions of it: the first he sings part of the chorus in an effort to hide the fact that he had been stealing treasure, in the second, he is heard singing the end of it, which he had been playing with Esmeralda. There is also an instrumental version that is played as background music in some scenes.
