Beautiful Soup

Poem by Lewis Carroll

BEAUTIFUL Soup, so rich and green,
Waiting in a hot tureen!
Who for such dainties would not stoop?
Soup of the evening, beautiful Soup!
Soup of the evening, beautiful Soup!

Beau- ootiful Soo-oop!
Beau- ootiful Soo-oop!
Soo- oop of the e- e- evening,
Beautiful, beautiful Soup!

Beautiful Soup! Who cares for fish,
Game, or any other dish?
Who would not give all else for two
Pennyworth only of Beautiful Soup?
Pennyworth only of beautiful Soup?

Beau- ootiful Soo-oop!
Beau- ootiful Soo-oop!
Soo- oop of the e- e- evening,
Beautiful, beauti- FUL SOUP!

    Okay.
    I never before heard of an ode to soup, but if anyone could make it funny, Lewis Carroll, Master of Nonsense (read 'Jabberwocky') , could!(Report)Reply

    It reads like a song and you can hear the multiple voices of the choir resounding and echoing in the hall.(Report)Reply
