How doth the little crocodile...
poem by Lewis Carroll

How doth the little crocodile...

How doth the little crocodile 
Improve his shining tail, 
And pour the waters of the Nile 
On every golden scale!

How cheerfully he seems to grin 
How neatly spreads his claws, 
And welcomes little fishes in, 
With gently smiling jaws! 


How doth the little crocodile...
