Octopus' Garden

This is a charming Sebastian song, which was recorded for Sebastian: Party Gras!, is a cover of Ringo Starr's "Octopus Garden", keeping with the adorable laid-back feel of the song. This is one of my favourite of the many Sebastian covers.

(printable version)

Aww man! C'mon now. (Scats)

I'd like to be, hah, under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade
Oh now, he'd let us in, he knows where we've been
In his octopus' garden in the shade

I'd ask my friends to come and see
An octopus' garden with me
C'mon now, I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade

Aww man, now, we would be warm below the storm
In our little hideaway beneath the waves
Restin' our head on the sea bed
In an octopus' garden near a cave, man

We would sing and dance around
Because we know that we can't be found

Aww man, I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade

Lay it out! (scats)

We would shout and swim about
The coral that lies beneath the waves
(Lies beneath the ocean waves)
Oh what joy for every girl and boy
Knowing that they're happy and they're safe
(Happy and they're safe)

Oh, we would be so happy you and me
No one there to tell us what to do
Aww man, I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden with you and you and you and you
In an octopus' garden with you, hah
In an octopus' garden with you
