The Lyrics

I'm not a squid, well that's because I'm an octopus,
I'm not a wuss, I know I'm marvelous, fabulous
And all the fish in the sea, well I just gobble them easily,
so happily, so hastily, with my beak

I also have a strong brain, so therefore it is quite possible,
incredible, oh, remarkable, radical
For me to unscrew the cap, right off the top of a pop bottle,
incredible, oh don't be doubtful or skeptical

But sometimes, it's me folks want to eat
I can't get any sleep
when it's their dinnertime
Won't you please leave me the hell alone
My life span's six months long
Just let this mollusk lie

My tenticles, there are eight,
with them I'm crawlin' or I'm huntin' prey,
most every day, oh, my suction cups, on display
Now won't you give me three hearts, oh wait, I already have them all!
So move along, oh, you laughable terrestrial!

{instrumental break}

But sometimes, it's me folks want to eat
I can't get any sleep
when it's their dinnertime
Won't you please leave me the hell alone
My life span's six months long
Just let this mollusk lie
Let me lie...
Let me lie...
Let me lie...

Wonderful stuff - some really, really good subs (especially liked the "laughable terrestrial")
