Song Lyrics

Chorus
Henry (The octopus)
The octopus (The octopus)
A very special friend, to me
Henry (The octopus)
The octopus (The octopus)
I have a great dance for you to see

Well, tell us now, Henry
What we all should do
Tell us now, Henry
We want to dance like you

Clap your hands, above your head
And you sway, from side to side
Start to bob, up and down
Now let's spin, around and round

Chorus

Well, tell us now, Henry
What we all should do
Tell us now, Henry
We want to dance like you

Clap your hands, above your head
And you sway, from side to side
Start to bob, up and down
Now let's spin, around and round

Chorus

Thank you all for dancing with me
Thank you all for dancing with me
Thank you all for dancing with me

Trivia

  • The instrumental version of this song was used for many things such as the end credits for The Wiggles' 3rd video, Big Red Car. It was later used in the end credits for the re-recordings of Wiggle Time! and Yummy Yummy, and multiple times in The Wiggles' 2nd TV Series. There was also a new instrumental track used for other countries' recordings, and used in 2006 during the credits of Here Comes The Big Red Car.
  • In the 1st season of Ready, Steady, Wiggle!, there was an alternate version sung at Wigglehouse where Henry had to tell everyone his favorite foods instead of teaching everyone his special dance for the song.
  • In the original version, a voice on the left audio channel is heard saying "Hum!" at 0:40 while Henry says "Start to bob up and down" for the first time.
  • In the 1994 version of Yummy Yummy all of the instruments are mixed in the center, as this would have been before the final album mix was prepared by 1995.
  • This song gives thanks to Terry Murray for the guitar work and Greg Truman for the backing vocals.
  • On Xuxa's album and video "Xuxa Só Para Baixinhos", the Brazilian version is called Teddy O Polvo, and plays in A rather than D as in The Wiggles' English version.
  • A partial version is sung in Surfer Jeff.
