Nine bowls of soup are balanced on the end Of a rake on an ichthyosaur's head Woah, woah, woah, woah! Oh good, none of them spilled

Please can I have one Mr. Ichthyosaur? No, you can't, I'm saving them for friends But you don't have any friends Yes, I do No, you don't Yes, I do. Now be quiet I'm trying to concentrate

Nine bowls of soup on the wings of an airplane Flown by an ichthyosaur Woah, woah, woah! Lucky thing they didn't all spill

Is there one that's kind of extra? Can I have it for my own? No, you can't. I can't break up the set But the soup is getting cold No, it isn't Yes, it is No, I don't know what you're talking about

Nine bowls of soup are balanced on a snake That the ichthyosaur is taking for a walk Woah, woah, woah, waah! Phew, I really thought that that was it

I just think that you have more than you can handle What's all the soup for anyway? I didn't think you even really liked soup Why do you need nine bowls? Why do you need Why do you need nine?

If I tell you what these are for, then will you stop bothering me? Nine bowls of soup Arranged a certain way Are some RADAR dishes In a very large array And the message they detect From across the Milky Way Says the aliens want to join us for lunch

I hope you guys like soup
