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.
