Sirens of the Sea is a song from the 2009 LAIKA stop-motion animated film Coraline, based off the 2002 novel of the same name by Neil Gaiman. It features the Other Spink and Other Forcible singing to protagonist Coraline during a deceptive performance.

The song was performed by Other Spink and Other Forcible's voice actresses Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French respectively.


I'm known as the siren of all seven seas
The breaker of hearts by the bay
So if you go swimming with bow-legged women
I might steal your weak heart away

A big-bottomed seawitch may bob through the waves
And hope to lead sailors astray
But a true ocean goddess
Must fill out her bodice
To present an alluring display

Oh! Beware of old oysters too large in the chest
Let's banish them from the buffet
I'm far more nutritious

You smell like the fishes-

Did I hear a banshee?

You're sea-green with envy!
This mermaid enchantress-
