Paul the Psychic Octopus

paul psychic octopus ayd instone

They put him in a tank and gave him some time
He picked out a flag but he didn’t pick mine
Oh why all the fuss over Paul the psychic octopus?
He called 8 matches out of 8 that’s 100% sucessfull rate
Oh why all the fuss over Paul the psychic octopus?

He hatched from a egg two years ago
Back then who would ever know, his talent for divination
He ignored the Dutch jar and made his final bid
Lifting the Spanish lid, to pick out the winning nation

Now he is a hero in Spain but Germany wants to cause him pain
Oh why all the fuss over Paul the psychic octopus?
With the final blow on the voovoozella, they want to turn him into a paella
Oh why all the fuss over Paul the psychic octopus?

If we think he predicts the future we must all be fools
Didn’t we study probablility in our schools, it’s unlikely but not surprising
If you got heads 8 times with a coin who’d give a toss
Why do we fall for superstitsious dross
Was the actual football that uninspiring

It’s quite an achievnment for a cephlapod to be worshiped as a football god
Oh why all the fuss over Paul the psychic octopus?
They put him in a tank and gave him some time
He picked out a flag but he didn’t pick mine
Oh why all the fuss over Paul the psychic octopus?
