This week’s song is The Beatles’ Octopus’s Garden.

I transposed the song to G to make it easier for banjo players, but you can play it in any key you wish. Also, the song of the week is not mandatory. You can play anything you want at the meeting. This is just something to get people practicing.

G              Em
I'd like to be under the sea
C                              D
In an Octopus's Garden in the shade.
G               Em
He'd let us in, knows where we've been,
C                              D
In his Octopus's Garden in the shade.
Em
I'd ask my friends to come and see
C              D
An Octopus's Garden with me.
G              Em
I'd like to be under the sea
C               D             G
In an Octopus's 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's 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's Garden in the shade.
 
We would shout and swim about
The coral that lies beneath the waves.
Oh, what joy for every girl and boy
Knowing they're happy and they're safe.
We would be so happy, you and me.
No one there to tell us what to do.

G              Em
I'd like to be under the sea
C               D          Em
In an Octopus's Garden with you,
C               D          Em
In an Octopus's Garden with you,
C               D          G  D  G
In an Octopus's Garden with you
