lyrics

I remember when I was a kid
We had a really awesome pet
He was a tiny little squid
In a bowl, by the TV set
He was really cute, his name was Sparky
He was a happy little soul
But he grew a bit more every day
We had to get a bigger bowl

CHORUS:
And he ate big fish little fish fat fish skinny fish all day long
Big fish little fish fat fish skinny fish all day long
With a great big slurping sound (slurp!)
Waving all his tentacles around.

Now that he had room to swim and play
Sparky liked his bigger bowl I think
But he grew a bit more every day
We had to put him in the sink
He was very helpful I must say
And he always gave the dishes a good scrub
But he grew a bit more every day
We had to put him in the tub

CHORUS

He was very helpful like I said
He folded all the towels for us
He even cleaned the bathroom cupboard
And he never made a fuss
But when we had guests they couldn’t wash their hands
Coz they’d scream and panic and all that malarky
They'd say “There’s a giant squid living in your bathtub!”
“Oh for heaven’s sake,” we’d say, ‘it’s only Sparky!”

CHORUS

But we knew that it was time to set him free
And we put him in the ocean with a sigh
He swam away quite happily
Waving one tentacle goodbye
He met a lady squid and fell in love
Their underwater wedding was spectacular
They had eighty little babies
Very cute, and very... well ... tentacular

CHORUS
And they eat big fish little fish fat fish skinny fish all day long
Big fish little fish fat fish skinny fish all day long
With a great big slurping sound
Waving all their tentacles around
Waving all their tentacles around!
