The Walrus and the Carpenter
The sun was shining on the sea Shining with all his might He did his very best to make The billows smooth and bright And this was odd because it was The middle of the night The Walrus and the Carpenter Were walking close at hand The beach was wide From side to side But much too full of sand Mr. Walrus Said the Carpenter My brain begins to perk We'll sweep this clear In 'alf a year If you don't mind the work Work The time has come The Walrus said To talk of other things Of shoes and ships and sealing wax Of cabbages and kings And why the sea is boiling hot And whether pigs have wings Calloo-Callay No work today We're cabbages and kings Oh, uh, Oysters, come and walk with us The day is warm and bright A pleasant walk A pleasant talk Would be a sheer delight Yes, should we get hungry on the way We'll stop and, uh, have a bite But Mother Oyster winked her eye And shook her heavy head She knew too well this was no time To leave her Oyster bed The sea is nice Take my advice And stay right here Mum said Yes, yes, of course, of course, but, uh, ha, ha The time has come, my little friends To talk of other things Of shoes and ships and sealing wax Cabbages and kings And why the sea is boiling hot And whether pigs have wings, ha ha Callo-Callay Come, run away With cabbages and kings The time has come, my little friends To talk of food and things Of peppercorns and mustard seeds And other seasonings We'll mix 'em all together In a sauce that's fit for kings Calloo-Callay We'll eat today Like cabbages and kings With cabbages and kings
