    "Mock Turtle Song" Lyrics

    Walter Becker feat. Donald Fagen

    Will you walk a little faster?, said a whiting to a snail
    There's a porpoise close behind us, and he's treading on my tail
    Don't you see how eagerly the turtles and the lobsters all advance
    They are waiting on the shingle, won't you come and join the dance?
    Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, won't you join the dance?
    You can really have no notion how delightful it will be
    When they take us up and throw us, with the lobsters in the sea
    But the snail replied "Too far, too far!" and gave a look askance
    Said he thanked the whiting kindly, but he would not join the dance
    Would not, could not, would not, could not, would not join the dance
    [Ba ba ba ba ba ba etc continuous background to end]
    What matters it how far we go? his scaly friend replied
    There is another shore, you know, upon the other side
    The further off from England the nearer is to France
    Then turn not pale, beloved snail, but come and join the dance
