Come into the kitchen, I'll sing you a song,
While the pea soup is boiling,
We'll have it for dinner, it won't take us long,
Cause the pea soup is boiling.

Chorus:
David and Karen turned the handle,
That's why it's so good to eat.
It's all full of onions, potatoes and celery,
Carrots and green peas and meat.

Meg made the biscuits and appley crispets,
A special for Bob on the way,
The nut from the grinder is not in the soup,
And Daddy will find it some day.

(Chorus)

Dad's a professor, he works in the basement,
And nobody knows he is there,
But when he comes home, we feed him on pea soup,
And so he has never a care.

David and Karen turned the handle,
Made such a wonderful goop.
There's so much potatoes and ham hocks and green peas,
There wasn't much room for the soup.
