Written as far back as 2010, this is Uphill Work's love letter to the late great Paul the Octopus who always knows better.


Heard a distant caterwauling
Might be mother’s pin a-rolling
Into my face what a disgrace
Pleaded guilty for my absence
Triggered by the concupiscence
Could you withhold a 15-year old
Running through the puddles never been so much fun
Sorry for the codgers who forgot how it’s done
So if you’re really going to
Come to terms with
Various wearisome stuff
Octopus recommends falling in love

Seen a flashlight through the blanket
Day before there was a banquet
Century half – have a good laugh
Let’s give up on work commitments
Life’s too short to not omit them
Could you withhold a 50-year old
Living as a prospect never been so much fun
Screw the obligations that were left undone
If you’re really going to
Come to terms with
Various regular fools
Octopus recommends breaking the rules

Smelled a scent of medication
True to type of my location
Once a flint rock, now a hospital dog
Now I figured what awaits us
Let’s switch off the apparatus
Could you withhold a 90-year old
Dying as a prospect never been so much fun
Gazing for the last time on this insolent sun
If you’re really going to
Come to terms with
Permanent serious fits
Octopus recommends calling it quits
