Beautiful Soup, so rich and green

Language: English

Beautiful Soup, so rich and green,
Waiting in a hot tureen!
Who for such dainties would not stoop?
Soup of the evening, beautiful Soup!
Beautiful Soup!
Beautiful Soup!
Soup of the 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?
Beautiful Soup!
Beautiful Soup!
Soup of the evening,
Beautiful, beautiful soup!

Belle Soupe, onctueuse, et odorante, et...

Language: French (Français) after the English

Belle Soupe, onctueuse, et odorante, et verte,
Qui reposes, brûlante, en la soupière ouverte,
Que ne donnerait-on pour avoir l’avantage
De te savourer, cher, délicieux potage ! !
Belle Soupe, Soupe, Soupe, Soupe du soir !
Bé… elle, bé… elle Sou… oupe !
Bé… elle, bé… elle Sou… oupe !
Sou… oupe, Sou… oupe, Sou… ou…
oupe du soir !
Bé… elle, bé… elle Sou… oupe !

Belle Soupe, qui donc réclamerait poisson,
Viande, ou œufs, ou volaille, ou même venaison ?
Qui ne renoncerait pas à tout ça pour deux sous
D’une si admirable et délectable Sou-
pe ?, Sou… ou… oupe du soir !
Bé… elle, bé… elle Sou… oupe !
Bé… elle, bé… elle Sou… oupe !
Sou… oupe, Sou… oupe, Sou… ou… oupe du soir !
Bé… elle, bé… elle Sou… oupe !
