Lyrics

English

Every night under the sea, the friendly octopus, Henry
Leads his underwater animal big band

Now Jellyfish, you play the drums
Walruses, you can hum
Electric eel, why don't you play your guitar?

Chorus
So clap your hands with Henry, turn around and shout
"YIPPEE!"
Cos his underwater band is now ready.
Everybody shout, "Hip Hip Hooray!"
When Henry's Big Band begins to play

Now dolphins play the trumpet loud
You're sure to bring a crowd
Sea-horse you can play the glockenspiel
The tortoise shell is timpani
It's lots of fun for you and me
Henry's Underwater Animal Big Band

Chorus

They're about to play
They're about to play
They're about to play
They're about to play

Let's get ready, everybody, woah-oh-oh!
Let's go!

Ooh, nice playing dolphins!
Ooh that's very good! Seahorses, very good!
Woah, nice work jellyfish! Very nice work!
Beautiful guitar, electric eel! Beautiful guitar!
Woah, I'm having a wonderful time!

Everybody shout, "Hip Hip Hooray!"
When Henry's Big Band begins to
Big Band begins to
Big Band begins to play

Woah-oh! Thank you, band, thank you!

Español (La Banda Submarina de Henry)

Cada noche bajo el mar
Tiene la banda musica
de animales dirigida por Henry

"Busco, toca la bateria."
"Leones marinos, cantan."
"Anguila, porque no tocas tu guitarra!"

Aplaudir el ritmo con Henry
Baila, grita y "Yoo hoo!"
Que es el Banda Submarina va tocar
Todos gritan ya "Hip hip hooray!"
Cuando la banda empieza a tocar

"Ahora, delfines toca la trumpeta!"
"Ontro es una multitud!"
"Caballito de mar a tocar a xilofone!"
"La tortuga es el tambor. Muy entretenido para ti para mi!"
 
Aplaudir el ritmo de Henry
Baila, grita y "Yoo hoo!"
Es el Banda Submarina va tocar
Todos gritan ya "Hip hip hooray!"
Cuando la banda empieza a tocar

Van a tocar
Van a tocar
Van a tocar

Todos gritan ya "Hip hip hooray!"
Cuando la banda empieza
la banda empieza
la banda empieza a tocar!

"Gracias, banda! Gracias!"
