Lyrics

TWEEDLE DEE: The Walrus and the Carpenter!
TWEEDLE DUM: Or The story of the curious Oysters!
The sun was shining on the sea,
Shining with all his might, 
TWEEDLE DEE: He did his very best to make 
The billows smooth and bright. 
TWEEDLE DUM: And this was odd, because it was 
BOTH:The middle of the night. 
TWEEDLE DEE: The Walrus and the Carpenter 
Were walking close at hand.
The beach was white from side to side
TWEEDL EDUM: But much too full of sand. 
Mister Walrus, 
TWEEDLE DEE: Said the Carpenter,
CARPENTER: My brain begins to perk. 
We'll sweep this clear 
In half a year, 
If you don't mind the work.
WALRUS: Work? Uh the time has come
To talk of other things. 
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax, 
And cabbages and kings. 
And why the sea is boiling hot, 
And whether pigs have wings. 
Callooh, callay, no work today! 
We're cabbages and kings! 
Oh, oysters, come and walk with us.
The day is warm and bright! 
A pleasant walk, 
A pleasant talk, 
Would be a sheer delight!
CARPENTER: Yes, and should we get hungry on the way,
We'll stop and have a bite!
TWEEDLEDUM: But mother Oyster winked her eye 
And shook her heavy head. 
She knew too well this was no time 
To leave her oyster bed.
MOTHER OYSTER: The sea is nice, 
Take my advice, 
And stay right here.
TWEEDLE DEE: Mom said.
WALRUS: Yes, of course! But... haha! 
The time has come, my little friends, 
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. 
Callooh, callay, come run away! 
We're the cabbages and kings! 
Well now, let me see... Ah! 
A loaf of bread is what we chiefly need.
CARPENTER: So how about some pepper 
And salt and vinegar, aye?
WALRUS: Oh yes, splendid idea! Haha, 
Very good in Tweedledeed! 
Now, if you're ready, oysters dear we can begin the feed.
OYSTERS: Feed?
WALRUS: Oh yes, ahh, 
The time has come, my little friends, 
To talk of food and things!
CARPENTER: Of peppercorn some mustard seed 
And other seasonings. 
We'll mix them all together 
In a sauce that's fit for kings. 
Callooh, callay, we'll eat today, 
Like cabbages and kings!
WALRUS: I weep for you, I oh, excuse me, 
I Tweedledeeply sympathize. 
For I've enjoyed your company, 
Oh, much more than you realize.
CARPENTER: Little oysters, little oysters...
TWEEDLE DEE: But answer there came none. 
TWEEDLE DUM: And this was scarcely odd, because,
BOTH: They'd been eaten, every one!
WALRUS: Well, ha ha, ha... the time has come!
TWEEDLE DEE AND TWEEDLE DUM: We're cabbages
 and kings! The end!
