"Just One Mistake" is a song from the 2008 Disney direct-to-video prequel film The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning. It features Marina Del Rey as she explains to her henchman Benjamin that all she needs is for Sebastian to make one mistake to loose his job so she may take it.

The song was performed by Marina's voice actress Sally Field, with Benjamin's voice actor Jeff Bennett in speaking roles.

LyricsEdit

Benjamin, I need to find a clue

To get myself Sebastian's job

To stage a little coup
A straw to break the camel's back
A teeny dent, a tiny crack

A quiver or a quake
What I need is one mistake

[Ow!]

[Oh, so sorry.]

Just one mistake

[Now, color. Sardine silver?]

[No thanks.]

[Orange roughy?]

[Not in the mood.]

[Rainbow trout?]

[Just paint them the shade of clarified butter!]

Sebastian, oh, better be on his guard

Cause I have some electric chums
And they'll be looking very hard
A straw to break Sebastian's back
A teeny dent, a tiny crack

A dowdy double take
What I need is one mistake

[Uno error.]

Just one mistake

Then... Hello, world
It's Marina Del Rey

I'm the new attachée

Or maybe more

Oh, I want so much more

Hello, world
I'm the belle of the ball

I'm the greatest of all the loyal royal big shots

Work it, Marina
Pouty, sassy

From the engine to the chassis

Got to, got to
Get it, get it
Gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta have it

A straw to break the camel's back
A teeny dent, a tiny crack

A mini mighty break

What I need is one mistake

[And after that, who knows?
Sebastian's bound to make a mistake, right?]

[Not likely]

[Dreamkiller!]
