Back in the late 1950s, goodr co-founder and weirdo, Stephen Lease, had a sordid but gentle love affair with a bright purple kraken named Maven. He would spend days on end staring into her purple & teal eyes while tending to her garden (wink). He wrote her a love song one afternoon that was later stolen by the worst Beatle. We’ve recently found the original lyrics written on seaweed paper behind an old oil painting of the two of them. The painting is too graphic to share, but the lyrics are below.

 

I’d like to be under the sea
In Maven the Kraken’s garden in the shade
She’d let us in, knows where we’ve been
In her krankenie garden in the shade

 

I’d ask my friends to come and see
A krankenie garden with me
I’d like to be under the sea
In Maven the Kraken’s garden in the shade

 

We would be warm below the storm
In our little hideaway beneath the waves
Resting our head on the sea bed
In her krankenie garden near a cave

 

We would sing and dance around
Because we know we can’t be found
I’d like to be under the sea
In Maven the Kraken’s garden in the shade

 

We would shout and swim about
The coral that lies beneath the waves
(Lies beneath the ocean waves)
Oh what joy for every girl and boy
Knowing we’re happy and we’re safe
(Happy and they’re safe)

 

We would be so happy you and me
No one there to tell us what to do
I’d like to be under the sea
In a krankenie garden with you.
