about

Well, this is my most popular children's song up to date. It all started at school (where I work) - I wanted to create with the kids a non-sense song. So we started listing rhymes... for 10 years now this is the song that they want to sing, when we have free choice singing...

lyrics

1. The octopus is red; he has a fat head,
All he goes is in his bed
The octopus is yellow, he’s a good fellow
All he does is – eat mush mellow

2. The octopus is pink, he has a good wink
All he does is all day swimming
The octopus is blue, he doesn’t have a clue
What to do with this terrible glue

3. The octopus is orange; he eats a lot of porridge
All he does is – squash his orange
The octopus is black, he lives in a sack
All he does is tickle his back

4. The octopus is purple, he lives in a circle
All he does is chase a turtle
The octopus is grey, he lives in hay
All he does is chase and play

5. The octopus is silver, he’s a good builder
All he does is make pure silver
The octopus is green, he’s very mean
I am telling you, he’s quite extreme

6. The octopus is white, he is very bright
All he does is: read and write
The octopus is gold, his house is old
And all the time he feels so cold
