This is the thirty-third, and perhaps the silliest, of my proposed 262 song-a-weeks. If you wanna see the video, it's here: youtu.be/-TyiowI2LHI- and if you want to help me keep doing this, throw me a buck a song at my Patreon: www.patreon.com/BrendanMilburn

lyrics

When you're smuggling soviet treasures from the east side to the west
Octopussy, yeah
going undercover as a circus troupe, that's the best
Octopussy, yeah
Who's a female villain from the indian subcontinent
and yet she's a swedish babe in a sari and she's flauntin' it
she likes her octopus and lots of money, yeah she's wantin' it.
Octopussy!
Octopussy!
Octopussy!
Octopussy, yeah.

What's a movie Roger Moore should probably not have made?
Octopussy, yeah
For Your Eyes Only wasn't bad, and there he should have stayed
Octopussy, yeah
they're paying us to write this, so we should put some good stuff in
there's a pretty exciting fight on a train from east to west berlin
And there's lots of lady ninjas fighting battles that they win in
Octopussy!
Octopussy!
Octopussy!
Octopussy, yeah.

Hey movie producers! Is this a serious film about nuclear disarmament?
Octopussy!
Or is it a goofy comedy that does the franchise a whole lotta harm, you meant?
Octopussy!
Whatever it is, it's definitely inconsistent in tone
If we could find a way to get Ian Fleming on the phone
He'd be rolling in his grave and letting out a deathly groan:
Octopussy!
Octopussy!
Octopussy!
Octopussy, yeah.
Octo - octo - octo - octo - it's such a terrible title, I just can't even say it out loud anymore
octo - octo - octo - I can't even say the word, it's so awful, it's such a terrible title
