"Positoovity" is a song from the Broadway musical The Little Mermaid performed by Eddie Korbich (Scuttle), Seagulls. Music by Alan Menken and Lyrics by Glenn Slater.

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 & 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 & 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 ziz-zer-zee
There ain't nothing you can't be
You see it's really your perogative

SCUTTLE & 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 & SEAGULLS:
Positively work for you!
