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
