I'd like to be under the sea
He'd let us in, knows where we've been

An octopus' garden with me
In an octopus' garden in the shade.
We would be warm below the storm
Resting our head on the sea bed

Because we know we can't be found
In an octopus' garden in the shade
We would shout and swim about
(Lies beneath the ocean waves)
Knowing they're happy and they're safe

No one there to tell us what to do
In an octopus' garden with you.
