TURTLE SOUP


    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, beaufiful 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!
     

(Sung by the Mock Turtle)
