Lyrics

"Very Good Advice"

But I very seldom follow it.
That explains the trouble that
I'm always in.
Be patient is very good advice,
But the waiting makes me curious.
And I'd love the change,
Should something strange begin.
Well, I went along my merry way,
And I never stopped to reason.
I should have known there'd be a price to pay, some day.
Some day.
I give myself very good advice,
But I very seldom follow it.
Will I ever learn to do the things I should?

Chorus:
Should I ever learn to do the things I should.

"In A World Of My Own"

Cats and Rabbits
Would reside in fancy little houses
And be dressed in shoes and hats and trouses
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 im lonely in a world of my own.

There'd be new birds
Lots of nice and friendly howdy-do birds
Everyone would have a dozen blue birds
Within that world of my own.

I could listen to a beddling brook
And hear a song that I could understand.
I keep wishing
It could be that way,
because my world would be a wonderland.

"All In A Golden Afternoon"

Lily: Laaaa...
Violets: Mimimimi...
Marguerite: Lalalala...
Snap-dragon: Hahahahahahaha...
Marigolds: Poem, poepoem, poem, poempoempoempoem....

All flowers:
Little bread-and-butterflies kiss the tulips,
And the sun is like a toy balloon.
There are get up in the morning glories,
In the golden afternoon.
There are dizzy daffodils on the hillside,
Strings of violets are all in tune,
Tiger lilies love the dandy lions,
In the golden afternoon,
The golden afternoon.
There are dog and caterpillars and a copper centipede,
Where the lazy daisies love the very peaceful life they lead...
You can learn a lot of things from the flowers,
For especially in the month of June.
There's a wealth of happiness and romance,
All in the golden afternoon. ...
All in the golden afternoon,
The golden afternoon...

Alice:
You can learn a lot of things from the flowers,
For especially in the month of June.
There's a wealth of happiness and romance, oh...

Flowers: ...the golden afternoon!

"Alice In Wonderland"

Alice in Wonderland
How do you get to Wonderland?
Over the hill or underland
Or just behind a tree?

When clouds go rolling by
They roll away and leave the sky.
Where is the land behind the eye?
People cannot see.

Where can you see
Where do the stars go?
Where is the crescent moon?
They must be somewhere in the sunny afternoon.

Alice in Wonderland
Where is the path to Wonderland?
Over the hill or here or there
I wonder where.

"The Caucus Race"

Forward, backward, inward, outward
Come and join the chase!
Nothing could be drier
Than a jolly caucus-race.
Backward, forward, outward, inward
Bottom to the top,
Never a beginning
There can never be a stop
To skipping, hopping, tripping
Fancy free and gay,
I started it tomorrow and will finish yesterday.
Round and round and round we go
And dance for evermore,
Once we were behind
But now we find we are
Forward, backward, inward, outward,
Come and join the chase!
Nothing could be drier
Than a jolly caucus-race.

"I'm Late"

I'm late, I'm late for a very important date.
No time to say hello, good-bye, I'm late, I'm late, I'm late
I'm late and when I wave, I lose the time I save.
My fuzzy ears and whiskers took me too mych time to shave.
I run and then I hop, hop, hop, I wish that I could fly.
There's danger if I dare to stop and here's a reason why:
I'm over-due, I'm in a rabbit stew.
Can't even say good-bye, hello, I'm late, I'm late, I'm late.

"A Very Merry Un-birthday"

Statistics prove, prove that you've one birthday,
One birthday ev'ry year.
But there are three hundred and sixty four
Unbirthdays.
That is why we're gathered here to cheer.
A very merry unbirthday to you, to you.
A very merry unbirthday to you,
It's great to drink to someone and I guess that you will do.
A very merry unbirthday to you.

"A E I O U"

Caterpillar:
A, e i o u, a e i o u, a e i o u, o,
u e i o a, u e i a, a e i o u..

Alice:
How doth the little busy bee, improve each such.

Caterpillar:
Hmm! How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail. And pour
The waters of the Nile, on every
Golden scale. How cheer... how cheer...
How cheerfully he seems to grin, how
Neatly spreads his claws. And welcomes
Little fishes in, with gently smiling jaws.
