Words by Lewis Carroll (1832-1898)

Music by Richard C. Davis

In "Through the Looking Glass" Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known as Lewis Carroll (1832-1898), coined and wrote the words to this intriguing melange of frequently unrecognizable vocabulary terms. A teacher of mathematics, he was caught up in the symbolic meanings of words and things, so--to the delight of children and child-like adults--he concocted a series of nouns, verbs and adjectives to symbolize and describe an imaginary monster and the youth who slays it. Joining together words like "beaming" and "squeamish" he came up with "beamish." We have it to you to decipher the rest.

THE JABBERWOCKY
'Twas brillig, and slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogroves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.


Chorus:

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
Beware the Jub-Jub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jabberwock, my son."


He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought--
So rested he in the Tumtum tree,
And stood a while in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood;
And he burbled as he came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went gallumphing back.


Chorus:

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
Beware the Jub-Jub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jabberwock, my son."

"And, hast thou slain the wicked Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
Oh frabjous day! Callooo! Callay!"
He chortled in his joy.

'Twas brillig, and slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe.
All mimsy were the borogroves,
And the mome raths out-grabe.


Chorus:

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son! Beware the Jub-Jub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch, The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jabberwock, my son! Beware the Jabberwock, my son!"
