BEAUTIFUL SOUP
Words by Lewis Carroll
From ALICE’S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND

Adaptation of the Poem “Star Of The Evening,” by James M. Sayle

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, beautiful Soup!

**********************

In Lewis Carroll’s book, ALICE IN WONDERLAND, poor Alice, she is so confused their in Wonderland and can’t quite get the right footing.  When Alice is in the strange room in which she lands after falling down the rabbit hole, she begins to have a set of strange experiences.  She begins to wonder who she is and if she is who she thinks she is or maybe someone else.  She tries to remember something familiar by repeating a well-known nursery rhyme, “Against Idleness and Mischief,” by Isaac Watts.  But it comes out all wrong.  It’s supposed to begin “How doth the little busy bee.” but instead she recites, “How doth the little crocodile…” and thus we have our little song.

In Disney’s movie, based on Lewis Carroll’s book, things are mixed up even from the book and it is the Caterpillar, sitting atop his mushroom smoking his hooka who recites the crocodile poem:

HOW DOTH THE LITTLE CROCODILE
Poem by Lewis Carroll
Music by Various Artists

How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale

How cheerfully he seems to grin
How neatly spreads his claws
And welcomes little fishs in
With gently smiling jaws

HOW DOTH THE LITTLE CROCODILE is featured in many illustrated editions of children’s poetry, including:

Addendum 7/6/2015

I have to admit that one of my favorite, slightly sinister, little ditties is HOW DOTH THE LITTLE CROCODILE.  I’ve previously made sing along sheets with and without guitar chords.  In addition, Paul Raimon helped me create a fun little sing along instrumental track for it.  I’ve been using laminated prints of the croc found in various compilations of children’s poetry and illustrations of ALICE IN WONDERLAND.  Time, though, to put it all together and make a book, using primarily the terrific picture, slightly sinister, of a crocodile and my son Mo made at camp a few years ago:

**********************

If you read carefully, you will find an irreverent take on “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”  in “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,”  when the Mad Hatter sings “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Bat.”

Twinkle, twinkle, little bat!
How I wonder what you’re at!
Up above the world you fly,
Like a tea tray in the sky.


This famous illustration of the Mad Hatter singing “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Bat” is from illustrator John Tenniel.

Sing “Twinkle Little Bat” with me,  here:

soundcloud.com/singbookswithemily/twinkle-little-bat-eleg-2010

Illustrations of this parody can be found in many versions of the “Alice” book.

It is also included in the Lewis Carroll edition of “Poetry for Young People,”

A Song Sheet with Guitar Chords for TWINKLE LITTLE BAT

Using the same straight forward chords for TWINKLE LITTLE BAT didn’t seem quite right.  It’s a little creepy this song, since it is sung at the slightly creepy and off kilter Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.  I decided to change a few of the chords put it off center a little, like the Leaning Tower of Pisa, it’s fun to sing for being slightly uncomfortable.

It’s whimsical and unexpected. TWINKLE BAT is one of the first songs I adapted for singing when I first started learning to play the guitar. I use the key of D for singing/playing TWINKLE STAR, but I simply changed some of the chords to Dm for BAT. This simple change added spooky mystery and it became its own composition, needing me to sing and play differently, with longer vocal lines and drifting notes, and visions of an ink blue night sky, with a bat silhouetted against a full moon running through my head when we sing it.

We love to sing “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Bat.”  The tune was first sung by The Mad Hatter at the tea party in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (written by Lewis Carroll in 1865).

So that the children can easily see the words and John Tenniel’s famous drawing of The Mad Hatter singing this very tune, I made a sing-along card.

Lewis Carroll’s Alice books are brimming with nonsensical poems and they are all singable.

Also thrilling are the library and bookstore shelves groaning under the weight of fabulously illustrated editions of
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There.”

In the cabaret rooms of my mind, I feel a show comin’ on.  Over time, I’ll explore about every one of these, but we’ll start with poem lists!

Here are the poems from
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

  • All in a Golden Afternoon
  • I’m Late (this song is from the Disney animation, using a few words from the original text, sung by the White Rabbit)
  • HOW DOTH THE LITTLE CROCODILE
  • Fury Said to a Mouse
  • You Are Old Father William
  • Speak Roughly to Your Little Boy
  • Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Bat
  • The Lobster Quadrille
  • ‘Tis the Voice of the Lobster
  • Beautiful Soup
  • The Queen of Hearts
  • They Told Me You Had Been to Her

Here are the poems from
Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There

  • Alice, Through the Looking Glass
  • Jabberwocky
  • Tweedledum and Tweedledee
  • The Walrus and the Carpenter
  • Humpty Dumpty
  • the Lion and the Unicorn
  • A-Sitting on a Gate (The White Knight)
  • Hush-a-by Lady, in Alice’s Lap
  • To the Looking-Glass World
  • First, the Fish Must be Caught
  • A Boat, Beneath a Sunny Sky

Here are a few of the many amazing illustrations of the Alice Books,

Addendum 7/30/2013

You can visit Alice, The Mad Hatter, The White Rabbit, and other characters from the Alice books, in Central Park, NYC.  The sculpture was created by José de Creeft in  1959, a commission from George Delacort as a gift for the Children of NYC.

My daughter Eloise climbs in Alice and her friends in August 2010.  Instead of off with their heads, Eloise decided to climb on their heads:

With special thanks to my friend Jill Leger, I figured out how to post vocals on MySpace.com.

I am learning ways to share vocals and tunes for some of the wonderful songs housed in the Singable Picture Books. The learning process continues.  But, for now, you can sing along with the following tunes on the “Sing Books with Emily” page on MySpace.com, http://www.myspace.com/singbookswithemily :
