Song Lyrics (1992 Version)

Henry the Octopus

Lives in our backyard swimming pool

Henry the Octopus

With his underwater school  

He came to our house on holidays

Moved eight times and decided to stay

He put on his hat and his eight-legged pants

And showed us all, the tentacle dance  

Henry: Would you care to tentacle dance?  

Henry the octopus

Lives in our backyard swimming pool

Henry the Octopus

With his underwater school  

Henry loves to cook for his friends

His marvelous talent well it had no end

He will bake, roast and fry

His favorite dish, the octo-pie  

Henry the octopus

Lives in our backyard swimming pool

Henry the octopus

With his underwater school  

Henry: Now listen in, everybody.  

Henry has a message for you

Listen in and don't feel blue  

Henry: You're all welcome here, grown-up or kids, enrolment fee, is just ten squids.  

Henry the Octopus

Lives in our backyard swimming pool

Henry the Octopus

With his underwater school.

Song Lyrics (1998 Version)

Henry: Breebop! Hi, everybody! I'm Henry the Octopus.  

Henry the Octopus

Lives down in the deep blue sea

Henry the Octopus

He's a friend to you and me  

Henry has a great big band

Playing on the ocean sand

He'll sing you all an octopus song

He'd like you to sing along  

Henry: Sing along, everybody!  

Henry the Octopus

Lives down in the deep blue sea

Henry the Octopus

He's a friend to you and me  

Henry: Oh! Hi, everybody!  

Henry loves to cook for his friends

His marvelous talent, well it has no end

He will bake, roast and fry

His favorite dish is seaweed pie  

Henry the Octopus

Lives down in the deep blue sea

Henry the octopus

He's a friend to you and me  

Henry: Now listen in everybody. Oh!  

Henry has a happy smile

He'd like you all to stay for a while

He'll put on his shoes and his 8-legged pants

He'll show you all the tentacle dance  

Henry the Octopus

Lives down in the deep blue sea

Henry the octopus

He's our friend to you and me  

Henry: Bye-bye, everybody. See you later! Yup!

Song Lyrics (TV Series 1)

Greg: Henry the Octopus lives down in the deep blue sea.

Henry the Octopus. He's a friend to you and me.

Henry: Hi everybody, or as we say in octopus language: Breebop.
