    The Walrus and the Carpenter
    (Version Originale de Le Morse et le Charpentier)



    TWEEDLE DUM:
    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

    The Walrus and the Carpenter
    Were walking close at hand
    The beach was wide
    From side to side
    But much too full of sand

    CARPENTER:
    Mr. Walrus

    TWEEDLE DEE:
    Said the Carpenter

    CARPENTER:
    My brain begins to perk
    We'll sweep this clear in 'alf a year
    If you don't mind the work

    WALRUS:
    Work?! The time has come

    TWEEDLE DUM:
    The Walrus said

    WALRUS:
    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

    CARPENTER:
    Yes, should we get hungry on the way
    We'll stop and, uh, have a bite

    TWEEDLE DEE:
    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 :
    Mum said

    WALRUS:
    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!

    Well, now, uh, let me see
    Ah, a loaf of bread is what we chiefly need!

    CARPENTER:
    Listen, how 'bout some pepper and salt and vinegar, eh?

    WALRUS:
    Well, yes, yes, splendid idea, ha ha!
    Very good, indeed
    Now, if you're ready, Oysters, dear
    We can begin the feed

    OYSTERS:
    Feed?!

    WALRUS:
    Oh, yes, the time has come, my little friends
    To talk of food and things

    CARPENTER:
    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!

    WALRUS:
    I, uh, weep for you. I (hic), oh excuse me
    I deeply sympathise
    For I've enjoyed your company, oh much more
    Than you realize

    CARPENTER:
    Little Oysters? Little Oysters?

    TWEEDLE DEE & DUM:
    But answer, there came none
    And this was scarcely odd because
    They'd been eaten
    Every one!

    With cabbages and kings!
