The Beatles

The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. They became the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed act in the history of popular music. Their best-known lineup consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. Rooted in skiffle and 1950s rock and roll, they later utilised several genres, ranging from pop ballads to psychedelic rock, often incorporating classical and other elements in innovative ways. In the early 1960s, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania", but as their songwriting grew in sophistication, they came to be perceived by many fans and cultural observers as an embodiment of the ideals shared by the era's sociocultural revolutions. more »

I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade 
He'd let us in, knows where we've been
In his octopus' garden in the shade 

I'd ask my friends to come and see
An octopus' garden with me
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade.

We would be warm below the storm 
In our little hideaway beneath the waves  Resting our head on the sea bed
In an octopus' garden near a cave

We would sing and dance around
 Because we know we can't be found 
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade 

We would shout and swim about 
The coral that lies beneath the waves 
(Lies beneath the ocean waves)
Oh what joy for every girl and boy
 Knowing they're happy and they're safe
(Happy and they're safe)

We would be so happy you and me
No one there to tell us what to do
I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden with you.
