Song Lyrics

1994

Jeff: (as Henry) Come and have a dance with me, Henry the Octopus.

Greg: Henry, (Greg Truman: the octopus) The Octopus, (the octopus)

A very special friend, to me.

Henry, (the octopus) The Octopus, (the octopus)

Jeff: (as Henry) I have a great dance, for you to see.

Greg: Well, tell us now, Henry, what we all should do

Tell us now, Henry, we want to dance like you.

Jeff: (as Henry) Clap your hands, above your head, and you sway, from side to side

Start to bob, up and down, now let's spin, around and round.

Greg: Henry, (Greg Truman: the octopus) The Octopus, (the octopus)

A very special friend, to me.

Henry, (the octopus) The Octopus, (the octopus)

Jeff: (as Henry) I have a great dance, for you to see.

Greg: Well, tell us now, Henry, what we all should do

Tell us now, Henry, we want to dance like you.

Jeff: (as Henry) Clap your hands above your head, and you sway from side to side

Start to bob, up and down, now let's spin, around and round.

Greg: Henry, (Greg Truman: the octopus) The Octopus, (the octopus)

A very special friend, to me.

Henry, (the octopus) The Octopus, (the octopus)

Jeff: (as Henry) Thank you all for dancing, with me (x3)

Trivia

The instrumental version of this song was used for many things such as the end credits for The Wiggles' 3rd video, Big Red Car. It was later used in the end credits for the re-recordings of Wiggle Time! and Yummy Yummy, and multiple times in The Wiggles' 2nd TV Series. There was also a new instrumental track introduced in 2006 used for other countries' recordings.

  • In the Ready, Steady, Wiggle! (TV Series 1), there was an alternate version sung at Wigglehouse where Henry had to tell everyone his favorite foods instead of teaching everyone his special dance for the song.
  • In the original version, a voice is heard saying "Hum!" at 0:40 while Henry says "Start to bob up and down" for the first time.
  • In the 1994 and the 1998 Live at Disneyland versions of the audio, all of the instruments are mixed in the center.
  • This song gives thanks to Terry Murray for the guitar work and Greg Truman for the backing vocals.
