The Darker Times - Happy Feet

Determination Beats All

Once the mass of Emperor and Adélie penguins, plus the Elephant Seals decided where to go, which was in fact Elephant Land, they all slowly travelled back. Once they got there however, Mumble decided to bring Gloria and Christina for a little talk.

“So, I think you both know what this is about.” Mumble said, Gloria and Christina glanced at each other before nodding.

“Okay, so do you think it's time to change?” Mumble asked.

“I don't think so, Gloria was your true love, not me.” Christina objected.

“Yeah, but I've done more harm to him than you have.” Gloria objected to Christina's objection.

“Besides, I think if Mumble feels like it's time then it's time.” Gloria added.

“Well, if it's going to be a stalemate between you two then it's all up to me, and I think both of you know what my decision is. Don't you?” Mumble asked, Christina and Gloria nodding again.

“Okay then, I'm sorry Gloria. I guess things were never meant to be.” Mumble added, before walking over to Christina.

“Stop dad!” Erik shouted, Christina, Mumble and Gloria quickly seeing Erik running over to them.

“I heard what you were talking about, it's just not right. Ma, right now you're acting like dad was when he was younger. Christina, I agree with you that ma is pa's true love. Pa, why are you even doing this?”

“Because me and Gloria had a fight.”

“So? Even the strongest of couples can have their moments, but they forgive and come back together. So I don't really see how this makes sense.” Erik explained, Mumble took what Erik said into account.

“You know what? Let's not change.” Mumble said, before quickly embracing Gloria, who was taken by surprise. But nonetheless, she embraced after a couple of seconds.

“I'll still be a bit weary though.” Mumble added, it wouldn't matter anyway.

Wrapped Up – Olly Murs

“(Mumble)Now excuse if I sound rude
But I love the way that you move
And I see me all over you now
Baby when I look in your eyes
There's no way that I can disguise
All these crazy thoughts in my mind now
There's just something about you
You got the lock
I got the key
You know the rest
You know just where I wanna be
Don't ever stop controlling me
I kinda like it when you bring me to my knees


You got me wrapped up
Around your finger
I'd do anything for your love now
And when you touch it, the feeling lingers
Takes me up so I high I can't come down
You got me wrapped up baby

(Gloria) I don't ever wanna give up
All this spell you got me under
I see fireworks when we touch now
There's just something about you
Your body fits on mine like a glove
Let them say whatever they want
It's too late cause you're in my blood now
You got the lock
I got the key
You know the rest
You know just where I wanna be
Don't ever stop controlling me
I kinda like it when you bring me to my knees


You got me wrapped up
Around your finger
I'd do anything for your love now
And when you touch it, the feeling lingers
Takes me up so I high I can't come down
Girl, You got me wrapped up
You got me so, so wrapped up
There's just something about you
You wrapped up
You got me so, so wrapped up
There's just something about you

(Mumble) My princess so intelligent
Make me wanna reapply to school for the hell of it
I'll be the student, you be the teacher
Ms. Sophisticated, such a pleasure to meet ya
Yeah, but here's the only issue since we met
You kinda turned my world upside down
And I don't really mind spiderman kissing you
As long as you're plagnning on sticking around
The happiest boy in the world award goes to me
Not a chance nobody came close to 'em
I kinda knew you was troublesome
You got me wrapped around your finger like bubblegum


Everything that you do
Every way that you move
There's just something about you
There's just something about you
Everything that you do
Every way that you move
There's just something about you


Girl you got me wrapped up
Around your finger
I'd do anything for your love now
And when you touch it, the feeling lingers
Takes me up so I high I can't come down
Girl, You got me wrapped up
You got me so, so wrapped up
There's just something about you
You wrapped up
You got me so, so wrapped up
There's just something about you”

“Okay, now lets go and stop that mountain.” Mumble said, leaving everyone within hearing range to say “What!?”
