In an Octopus’s garden….

Today we learned all about the octopus and the letter O.  We read an octopus book, sang a few octopus songs and made a hand print octopus too!

Octopus

(to the tune of “If You’re Happy and You Know it”)

Oh, I wish I was an orange octopus.

Oh, I wish I was an orange octopus.

Oh, I’d wave my lovely legs,

And I’d splash in all the waves.

Oh, I wish I was an orange octopus.

Oh, I wish I was an oval octopus.

Oh, I wish I was an oval octopus.

Oh, I’d wave my lovely legs,

And I’d splash in all the waves.

Oh, I wish I was an oval octopus.

I love this song by the Beatles!  It is so whimsical and fun, you can’t help but smile when you hear it!  Click below to hear it performed by the Muppets.

In an Octopus’s Garden performed by the Muppets

Octopus’s Garden

by Ringo Starr

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.
