"Soup Song" (karaoke)

"Soup Song" (sheet music)


I'm spending my nights at the flophouse;

I'm spending my days on the street;

I'm looking for work, but I find none;

I wish I had something to eat.

 

Soup, soup, they give me a bowl of soup;

Soup, soup, they give me a bowl of soup.

 

I spent twenty years in the fact'ry;

I did ev'rything I was told;

They said I was loyal and faithful,

But even before I get old....

 

Soup, soup, they give me a bowl of soup;

Soup, soup, they give me a bowl of soup.

 

I saved fifteen bucks with my banker

To buy me a car and a yacht;

I went down to draw out my fortune,

But this is the answer I got:

 

Soup, soup, they give me a bowl of soup;

Soup, soup, they give me a bowl of soup.

 

I fought in the war for my country;

I went out to bleed and to die;

I thought that my country would help me,

But this was my country's reply:

 

Soup, soup, they give me a bowl of soup;

Soup, soup, they give me a bowl of soup.

 

I went on my knees to my Maker;

I prayed ev'ry night to the Lord;

I vowed I'd be meek and submissive,

And now I've received my reward:

 

Soup, soup, they give me a bowl of soup;

Soup, soup, they give me a bowl of soup.
