Lyrics:

(Mister Bowman, can you tell us about the Squiddles?)
(Well of course, child!)
(Yay!)

Let me tell you of the Squiddles who live below the sea
They love to sing and dance and play just like you and me
They're squishy little creatures with tentacles of joy
And adorable eyes that bring delight to every girl and boy

Not much is known about the Squiddles, at least on our behalf
And many wonder why it is they always seem to laugh
Do they know some kind of secret? Well, maybe, just in part
But any child knows the real answer deep within their heart!

They laugh because they love
They sing because they're free
They splash because they're safe and sound
Below the deep blue sea

They leap because they like you
They swim because they're swell
They smile because they have so many
Stories they like to tell

The Squiddles live in a magical land
Below the waves in castles of sand
If you listen close you can hear them make their plans

(What kind of plans?)
(Happy Squiddle plans!)

They kiss because they can't help it
They wiggle because why not!
They prance because they're oh so proud
Of all the friends they've got (Hey guys, how's it going?)

They jump because they're joyful
They giggle because they're glad
They Squiddle because in Squiddle Land
No one's ever sad!

(All right, now we're going to do the whole song one more time, and this time I want everybody to join in. Parents, that means you too. If you don't know the words just look them up online, I'm sure they're there somewhere. Otherwise, sit real close to your television set and follow the bouncing ball and you're sure to be a winner! Are you ready, kids? All right, here it comes again. And a-one, and a-two, and a-one two three!)

They laugh because they love
They sing because they're free
They splash because they're safe and sound
Below the deep blue sea

They leap because they like you
They swim because they're swell
They smile because they have so many
Stories they like to tell

The Squiddles live in a magical land
Below the waves in castles of sand
If you listen close you can hear them make their plans

(What sort of plans?)
(Happy Squiddle plans!)

They kiss because they can't help it
They wiggle because why not
They prance because they're oh so proud
Of all the friends they've got

They jump because they're joyful
They giggle because they're glad
They Squiddle because in Squiddle Land
No one's ever sad!
