lyrics

MALT SHOP IN THE SKY/SPACE CREATURES FROM OUTER SPACE/DO THE OCTOPUS

It was a dark and rainy night
I begged her not to go
Was I wrong, or was she right?
I guess I'll never know

I'll always know just where she is
But never how or why
My baby's in that malt shop in the sky

The Chevy felt so heavy
The road so slick and wet
That I forgot to fix the brakes
I will always regret

The road went left, the car went right
A Chevy cannot fly
My baby's in that malt shop in the sky

But who could know the really big surprise
The crash was seen by unexpected eyes

IT WAS SPACE CREATURES FROM OUTER SPACE!



Space Creatures from Outer Space (x3)
They're talking our women back to their place

They got ten eyes
They got 12 arms
Earth girls can't resist their charms

Space Creatures From Outer Space (x3)
They never lie, but they are two-faced.

ALIEN #1: I love Earth women!
ALIEN #2: I haven't had this much fun since I was orbiting Uranus!

They pick up chick to take to Mars
In souped-up hot rod spaceship cars

Space Creatures From Outer Space (x3)
Never dare them to a drag race

MAKE 'EM DO THE OCTOPUS!

Why don't you get three friends
Stand face to face
Wiggle your arms
All over the place

Chorus:
Do The Octopus!
It's really great!
Do The Octopus!
Don't be late!
Do the Octopus!
To the power of eight!

One and one is two
Two and two is four
Four and four is eight
And there just ain't no more

Chorus

Eeenie Meenie Mi
Meenie Mynie Moe
Take an octopus
And grab him by the toe toe toe toe toe toe toe toe

Chorus
