Well an octopus' life isn't easy
I want to tell you why
Too many arms to wave hello with
Too many to wave good-bye
Oh no, no, no
I just don't know which arms to use
I've got the 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 blues

I took a fish on a date to the movies
She said, "Honey put your arms around me tight"
I said, "By the time I put all my arms around you
Gonna be sometime next Wednesday night! "
Oh no, no, no
Life is just full of tough news
I've got the 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 blues

I've got trouble with my girlfriend among other things
She's an octopus and she says to me,
"Honey, please buy me 8 diamond rings!"
Oh no, no, no
Life is full of tough news
I've got the 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 blues
I said the 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 blues
The octopus blues
