How Doth the Little Crocodile

"How Doth the Little Crocodile" is a poem from Lewis Carroll's novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Alice recites it in Chapter 2. After falling down the rabbit hole into Wonderland and changing sizes repeatedly, Alice attempts to recite "How Doth the Little Busy Bee" in order to find out whether she is still herself, but the poem comes out as "How Doth the Little Crocodile," which perplexes her greatly.

The poem describes a crocodile that lures fish into his mouth with a smile. In the films, it is performed by Fiona Fullerton in the 1972 film Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The poem is a parody of the moralistic poem "Against Idleness and Mischief" by Isaac Watts, which is also the original poem Alice was trying to recite.
