House

Told you I wasn’t done with these yet. They’re harder than they look if your Youtube queue isn’t primed correctly and it’s a struggle to keep out the right wing bullshit trash anyway.

Anyway who’d a thunk Sir Richard Starkey, MBE would turn out to be the safe and sane one. This is about my favorite song of his ever.

I’d like to be under the sea
In an octopus’s garden in the shade
He’d let us in, knows where we’ve been
In his octopus’s garden in the shade
I’d ask my friends to come and see
An octopus’s garden with me
I’d like to be under the sea
In an octopus’s garden in the shade

We would be warm below the storm
In our little hide-a-way beneath the waves
Resting our head on the sea bed
In an octopus’s 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’s 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’s garden with you

In an octopus’s garden with you
In an octopus’s garden with you

This is his 80th Birthday show from last week.
