How doth the little Crocodile

Listen to Midi Tune

image

 

How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On ev’ry golden scale!
How cheerfully he seems to grin,
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in
With gently smiling jaws!

Beautiful Soup

Listen to Midi Tune

image

1. Beautiful soup, so rich and green,
Waiting in a hot tureen!
Who for such dainties would not stoop?
Soup of the ev’ning, beautiful soup!
Soup of the ev’ning, beautiful soup!
Beautiful soo-oop!
Beautiful soo-oop!
Soo-oop of the e-e-ev’ning,
Beautiful, beautiful soo-oo-oop!
2. "Beautiful soup! Who cares for fish,
Game, or any other dish?
Who would not give all else for two p-
ennyworth only of beautiful soup!
Pennyworth only of beautiful soup!
Beautiful soo-oop!
Beautiful soo-oop!
Soo-oop of the e-e-ev’ning,
Beautiful, beautiful soo-oo-oop!"
