Ocarina of Time
Lets you warp to the Triforce Pedestal in Lake Hylia.

The Serenade of Water is one of the six teleportation songs learned in Ocarina of Time. This song will teleport you to the Triforce Pedestal at Lake Hylia, near the Water Temple.

How to learn it

To learn it, you must first have beaten the Forest Temple and returned to the Temple of Time to learn the Prelude of Light from Sheik. You now have the choice of going through the Fire Temple or the Water Temple. Many do the Fire Temple first, as it is easier, and Navi gives you a hint about the Fire Temple before the Water Temple. Either way, when you are ready to do the Water Temple, head to Zora's Domain. Go over to Zora's Fountain, where Lord Jabu-Jabu used to be. Jump across the spinning, floating ice slabs in the lake towards the cave (you can get a Heart Piece here if you would like). Enter the cave to get to the mini-dungeon, Ice Cavern.

Go through Ice Cavern until you reach the end where you will fight the final enemy of the dungeon, before Sheik will appear. After a lengthy cutscene, and some more great words of wisdom, he will teach you the Serenade of Water, as well as giving you the Iron Boots. Before heading to the Water Temple, however, make sure you have at least one bottle filled with Blue Fire and go back to see King Zora. Unfreeze him, and he will give you the Zora Tunic. This is essential for the Water Temple.
