Octopus's Garden
The Beatles Lyrics


I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade
He'd let us in, 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

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

We would be warm (ooh) below the storm (ooh)
In our little hideaway beneath the waves (aah)
Resting our head (ooh) on the sea bed (ooh)
In an octopus' garden near a cave (aah)
We would sing and dance around
Because we know we can't be found

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

We would shout (aah) and swim about (ooh)
The coral that lies beneath the waves
(Lies beneath the ocean waves)
Oh what joy (aah) for every girl and boy (ooh)
Knowing they're happy and they're safe
(Happy and they're safe)
We would be so happy, you and me
No one there to tell us what to do

I'd like to be (aah) under the sea
In an octopus' garden with you
In an octopus' garden with you
In an octopus' garden with you

my favorite part is when he says :

I'd like to be
Under the sea
In an octopus' garden
In the shade
He'd let us in
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
I'd like to be
Under the sea
In an octopus' garden
In the shade
We would be warm
Below the storm
In our little hideaway
Beneath the waves
Resting our head
On the seabed
In an octopus' garden
Near a cave
We would sing
And dance around
Because we know
We can't be found
I'd like to be
Under the sea
In an octopus' garden
In the shade
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 they're happy
And they're safe
(Happy and they're safe)
We would be so happy
You and me
No one there to tell us
What to do
I'd like to be
Under the sea
In an octopus' garden
With you
In an octopus' garden
With you
In an octopus' garden
With you

I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade
He'd let us in, 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
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade
We would be warm below the storm
In our little hideaway beneath the waves
Resting our head on the sea bed
In an octopus' garden near a cave
We would sing and dance around
Because we know we can't be found
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade
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 they're happy and they're safe
(Happy and they're safe)
We would be so happy you and me
No one there to tell us what to do
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden with you
In an octopus' garden with you
In an octopus' garden with you

Ugh. I'm already starting to see the cancel culture lurk around the comments of various songs by The Beatles. I consider myself pretty left-wing myself, but opposite of these folks in regards to authoritarianism/libertarianism. I'm getting so tired of it.

I've seen people complain about cultural appropriation on some of George's pieces, and while I think cultural appropriation is a legit concern, if any of these people knew anything about him and the history behind his beliefs, they would damn well know it isn't appropriation. Then again, some people think that cultural appreciation is appropriation, so you can't win with them regardless of what evidence you provide them.

And of course, you get the regular comments pointed at John. Yeah, it doesn't mean we condone his bad actions, but seriously, is anyone perfect? I know a lot of these comments were originally left by anti-Beatles trolls, but now seem to be left by those who are in favor of cancel culture.

And I'm waiting to see what else these sorts throw at The Beatles. I'm sure something else will piss them off.

Anyway, I didn't mean to make this long-winded, but this is something that has seriously irritated me as of late.

@Fred Rico also, I hate how octopi sounds... Not just the pretentiousness of it (though, there's that lol) but it sounds like unpleasant chewy dessert lol

I love how in most of Ringo's songs he sings about his friends

Aaron Gerrard-Ziniti
