"Octopus's Garden" is a song by The Beatles written and sung by Ringo Starr (credited to his real name Richard Starkey) from The Beatles' 1969 album Abbey Road. The idea for the song came about when Starr was on a boat belonging to comedian Peter Sellers in Sardinia in 1968. The boat's captain told Starr about how octopuses travel along the sea bed picking up stones and shiny objects with which to build gardens. Starr's songwriting was further inspired by his desire to escape mounting hostility among the Beatles; he would later admit that he had "just wanted to be under the sea, too."
