We all get scared sometimes, and it's good to have a friend.


i got a tiny little octopus he's trying hard to be anonymous
he says he's just a cool rhinoceros but that is a lie
i don't know why he hides

eight - legs, and all of them are running to a
safe - place below the kitchen sink. he's got a
good - friend who doesn't understand but wants to
give him a hand when he's scared

is - it the cat who's always prowling round the
front - door and wants to get inside? is it the
loud - noise from just across the way oh how i
wish he would say but he's scared


please come out and talk about
what's got you so upset
is it time to change your mind?
(uh uh) oh, not yet

i - don't know what's gotten into him it's
not - like the way he used to be. i wish that
make some room for me because i
don't want to see why i'm scared


hey there tiny little octopus it's ok
to be scared sometimes
we all need a place to hide
