ビートルズが1969年にリリースしたアルバムABBEY ROADの5曲目。リンゴ・スターの作品。


George Harrison (1969)
'Octopus’s Garden’ is Ringo’s song. It’s only the second song Ringo wrote, and it’s lovely. Ringo gets bored playing the drums, and at home he plays a bit of piano, but he only knows about three chords. He knows about the same on guitar. I think it’s a really great song, because on the surface, it just like a daft kids’ song, but the lyrics are great. For me, you know, I find very deep meaning in the lyrics, which Ringo probably doesn’t see, but all the thing like 'resting our head on the sea bed’ and 'We’ll be warm beneath the storm’ which is really great, you know. Because it’s like this level is a storm, and if you get sort of deep in your consciousness, it’s very peaceful. So Ringo’s writing his cosmic songs without noticing.

Ringo Starr (1981)
He (a ship captain) told me all about octopuses– how they go 'round the sea bed and pick up stones and shiny objects and build gardens. I thought, 'How fabulous!’ because at the time I just wanted to be under the sea, too. I wanted to get out of it for a while.
