Lyrics

He dreamed that he stood in a shadowy Court
Where the Snark, with a glass in his eye
Dressed in gown, bands, and wig, was defendig a pig
On a charge of deserting its sty

(Barrister)
I dreamed last night I was standing in a court of Law
And the Snark was the Counsel for Defence
He was trying to establish the innocence
Of a pig that I clearly saw
As stated hereinbefore
In a Court of Law

And while I was standing in a Court of Law
The jury talked so they missed a lot
And some were listening and some were not
So the judge cried, "I implore
Bring it down to a deafening roar
In this Court of Law"

(Barrister + Jury)
Let's teach it a lesson it'll never forget
For a devious deed it will live to regret
It's clear that the pig must die
We're of the opinion the pig must pay
We can't let it live for another day
We fear if the rules apply
It's clear that the pig must die

(Barrister)
The Snark replied, "I beg you my learned friends
For it seems to me with the naked eye
That the pig can live or the pig can die
And its happiness all depends
On the mercy that now extends
From my learned friends"

(Jury)
Let's teach it a lesson it'll never forget
For a devious deed it will live to regret
It's clear that the pig must die

(Barrister + Jury)
We're of the opinion the pig must pay
We can't let it live for another day
We fear if the rules apply
It's clear that the pig must die

Let's teach it a lesson it'll never forget
For a devious deed it will live to regret
It's clear that the pig must die
We're of the opinion the pig must pay
We can't let it live for another day
We fear if the rules apply
It's clear that the pig must die

Then the snark pronounced sentence, the Judge being quite
Too nervous to utter a word
When it rose to its feet, there was silence like night
And the fall of pin might be heard

(Barrister)
Let's teach it a lesson it'll never forget
For a devious deed it will live to regret
It's clear that the pig must die

(Barrister + Jury)
We're of the opinion the pig must pay
We can't let it live for another day
We fear if the rules apply
It's clear that the pig must die

But their wild exultation was suddenly checked
When the jailer informed them with tears
Such a sentence would have not the slightest effect
As the pig had been dead for some years
