Soup song se je rodila v stavkovnem valu leta 1937, v ZDA. Melodija vam bo takoj znana, tj. škotska ljudska melodija My Bonnie lies over the ocean.
Pesem o juhi, juhi kot metafori za delo. Vedno pa ne pojemo takšne juhe kakršno si skuhamo sami.


I’m spending my nights at the flophouse,
I’m spending my days on the street,
I’m looking for work and I find none,
I’wish I had something to eat.
Soup, soup
they give me a bowl of soup,
soup, soup,
they give me a bowl of soup.
Od mladih nog bil sem v tovarni,
zalagal se z delom za dva,
poslušen na vsako besedo,
na starost pa kdo me pozna:
Juhe, juhe,
le skledico juhe dobim,
juhe, juhe,
le skledico juhe dobim.

Naložil sem v banki prihranek,
da kupim si avto morda,
a ko sem denar svoj zahteval,
dobil sem odgovor le-ta:
Juhe, juhe…

I fought in the war for my country,
I went out to bleed and to die.
I thought that my country would help me,
but this was my country’s reply:
Soup, soup…
