Song Lyrics

Greg: Every night under the sea, a friendly octopus, Henry

Leads his underwater animal big band.

Henry: Now jellyfish, you play the drums. Walruses, you can hum.

Electric eel, why don't you play your guitar?

Greg: So clap your hands with Henry, turn around and shout "Yippie!"

'Cause the underwater band is now ready.

Everybody shout "Hip-hip, hooray!"

When Henry's big band begins to play.

Henry: Now dolphins, play the trumpets loud. You're sure to bring the crowd.

Seahorse, you can play the glockenspiel.

The tortoise shell is timpani. It's lots of fun for you and me.

Greg: Henry's underwater animal big band.

So clap your hands with Henry, turn around and shout "Yippie!"

'Cause the underwater band is now ready.

Everybody shout "Hip-hip, hooray!"

When Henry's big band begins to play.

They're about to play.

Henry: Let's get ready, everybody. Let's go. Oh, nice playing, dolphins. Ooh, that's very good. Seahorse is very good. Oh, nice work, jellyfish. Very nice work. Beautiful guitar, electric eel. Beautiful guitar. Oh, I'm having a wonderful time.

Greg: Everybody shout "Hip-hip, hooray!"

When Henry's big band begins to, big band begins to

Big band begins to play.

Henry: Oh, thank you, band, thank you.
