Alice in Wonderland

How do you get to Wonderland

Over the hill or under land

Orjust behind the tree

When clouds go rolling by

They roll away and leave the sky

Where is the land beyond the eye

That people cannot see

Where can it be

Where do stars go

Where is the grass that blooms

They must be somewhere

In a sunny afternoon

Alice in Wonderland

Where is the path to Wonderland

Over the hill or here or there

I wonder

Where

"... for if he does

and had been of late...

"much accustomed to

usurpation and conquest

"Edwin and Morcar, the earls

of Mercia and Northumbria,

declared for him,

and even Stigand... "

- Alice

- Hmm?

- Oh, I'm listening

- "And even Stigand,

"the Archbishop of Canterbury,

agreed to meet with William...

and offer him the Crown"

"William's conduct

at first was model... "

Alice. Will you kindly

pay attention to your history lesson?

I'm sorry, but how can one

possibly pay attention...

to a book with

no pictures in it?

My dear child,

there are a great many good books

in this world without pictures

In this world, perhaps,

but in my world,

the books would be

nothing but pictures

Your world? Huh!

What nonsense

- Now, once more

- Nonsense?

- From the beginning

- That's it, Dinah

If I had a world of my own,

everything would be nonsense

Nothing would be

what it is,

because everything would be

what it isn't,

and contrariwise,

what it is, it wouldn't be

And what it wouldn't be, it would

You see?

In my wo. rld, you

wouldn't say "meow"

You'd say, "Yes, Miss Alice"

Oh, but you would. You'd be

just like people, Dinah

And all the other animals too

Why, in my world:

Cats and rabbits

Would reside in

fancy little houses

And be dressed in shoes

and hats and trousers

In a world

of my own

All the flowers

Would have very

extra-special powers

They would sit and talk to me

For hours

when I'm lonely

In a world of my own

There'd be new birds

Lots of nice and friendly

how-de-do birds

Everyone would have

a dozen bluebirds

Within that world

Of my own

I could listen

To a babbling brook

And hear a song that

I could understand

I keep wishing

It could be that way

Because my world would be

A wonderland

Oh, Dinah. It's just a rabbit

with a waistcoat... and a watch!

Oh, my fur and whiskers!

I'm late, I'm late, I'm late!

Now this is curious. What could

a rabbit possibly be late for?

- Please, sir!

- I'm late, I'm late

For a very important date

No time to say hello, Goodbye

- I'm late, I'm late, I'm late

- It must be awfully important

Like a party or something.

Mr Rabbit! Wait!

No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

I'm overdue

I'm really in a stew. No time to say

goodbye, Hello I'm late, I'm late, I'm late

My. What a peculiar place

to have a party

You know, Dinah,

we really shouldn't...

um... be doing this

After all, we haven't been invited,

and curiosity often leads to trouble

Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!

Goodbye, Dinah. Goodbye!

Oh

Well, after this, I shall

think nothing of fall...

Oh. Of falling down stairs

Oh!

Ahh

Whoa!

Goodness. What if I

should fall right through...

the centre of the earth...

Oh! And come out the other side...

where people walk upside down?

Oh, but that's silly.

Nobody... Oh!

Oh, Mr Rabbit! Wait!

Please!

Curiouser and curiouser!

- Ohh!

- Oh! Oh, I beg your pardon

Whew. Ha. It's quite all right,

but you did give me quite a turn

- You see, I was following...

- Rather good, what? Doorknob? Turn?

- Please, sir

- Swell, huh?

One good turn deserves another.

What can I do for you?

Well, I'm looking for a white rabbit,

so, um, if you don't mind..

Eh? Oh!

- There he is! I simply must get through

- Sorry. You're much too big

- Simple impassable

- You mean impossible

No, impassable.

Nothing's impossible

- Why don't you try the bottle on the table?

- Table? Oh!

Read the directions and directly you'll

be directed in the right direction

"Drink me"

Hmm. Better look first,

for if one drinks much...

from a bottle marked "poison,"

it's almost certain to disagree

with one sooner or later

- Beg your pardon?

- I was just giving myself some good advice

But... Mmm.

Tastes like, uh, cherry tart

Custard, pineapple,

roast turkey. Goodness!

- What did I do?

- Ho-ho-ho-ho-ho

You almost went out like a candle

But look! I'm just the right size

Oh, no use

I forgot to tell you

I'm locked!

Oh, no!

Uh, but of course, uh,

you've got the key, so...

- What key?

- Now don't tell me you've left it up there

Oh, dear

- Whatever will I do?

- Try the box, naturally

Oh!

"Eat me. " All right,

but goodness knows what this will do

Whoa, whoa, whoa,

whoa, oh!

What did you say?

I said, "A little of that

went a long way"

Well, I don't think it's so funny

Now... Now I shall n-never get home!

Oh, come, come, now.

Crying won't help

I know, but I-I...

I just can't...

I can't stop!

Come! Oh! Say, this won't do

It won't do at all

You! You up there! Stop!

I say! Oh, look!

The bottle. The bottle!

Oh, dear. I do wish

I hadn't cried so much

Oh, a sailor's life is the life for me

How I love to sail

on the bounding sea

And I never, never, ever

do a thing about the weather

For the weather never, ever

does a thing for me

Oh, a sailor's life

is the life for me

Tiddlee um pom pom

Deedle dum dum dee

And I never, ev... Ahoy!

And other nautical expressions!

Land ho, by Jove!
