Octopus' Garden


Well LBF told us today that Ringo Starr’s song Octopus’ Garden is going to be made into a children’s book. So I thought we would go back to the album Abby Road that was put out in 1969. Ringo only wrote two songs, and this was one of the songs that he wrote all by himself. It is about how he was on this yacht that was owned by Peter Sellers, a comedian and movie star, and he ordered fish and chips for lunch. Well when the meal came it was actually octopus and chips, he didn’t care for it too much because it was too rubbery. Well the captain told him that octopus’ swim across the bottom and they pick up stones and shiny objects and they actually build little gardens. So Ringo decided to sing a song about it.
