Alice in Wonderland, how do you get to Wonderland?
Over the hill or underland, or just behind the tree?
When clouds go rolling by, they roll away and leave the sky. Where is the land beyond the eye, the people can not see, where can it be? Where do stars go, where is the grass that's blue?
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.
Sister: ...leaders, 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! Alice: Hmm...? Oh, I’m listening.
Sister: And even Stigand, the archbishop of Canterbury, agreed to meet with William and offer him the crown. Alice: He he he!
Sister: William’s conduct at first was mo....
Alice: He he he!
Sister: Alice...! Will you kindly pay attention to your history lesson? Alice: I’m sorry, but how can one possibly pay attention to a book with no pictures in it? Sister: My dear child, there are a great many good books in this world without pictures. Alice: In this world perhaps. But in my world, the books would be nothing but pictures. Sister: Your world? Huh, what nonsense. Now...
Sister: Once more. From the beginning.
Alice: 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? Dinah: Meow!
Alice: In my world, you wouldn’t say ‘meow’. You’d say ‘Yes, miss Alice’. Dinah: Meow!
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 here a song, that I could understand. I keep wishing it could be that way, because my world would be a wonderland. Dinah: Meow! Meow! Meow!
Alice: Oh Dinah! It’s just a rabbit with a waistcoat... and a watch! White Rabbit: Oh my fur and whiskers! I’m late, I’m late I’m late! Alice: Now this is curious! What could a rabbit possibly be late for? Please, sir! White Rabbit: 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! Alice: It must be awfully important, like a party or something! Mister Rabbit! Wait! White Rabbit: 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! Alice: My, what a peculiar place to have a party.
Alice: You know, Dinah, we really shouldn’t...uhh...uhh...be doing this... After all, we haven’t been invited! And curiosity often leads to troubl – l – l – e – e – e! Goodbye, Dinah! Goodbye! ... Oh! Well, after this I shall think nothing of fa-... of falling downstairs! ... Oh! Ahhh... Oh, Goodness! What if I should fall right through the center of the earth... oh, and come out the other side, where people walk upside down. Oh, but that’s silly. Nobody... oh! Oh, ha ha. Oh, mister Rabbit! Wait! Please! ... Curiouser and curiouser! Doorknob: Ohhhhh!!
Alice: OH! Oh, I beg your pardon.
Doorknob: Oh, oh, it’s quite all right. But you did give me quite a turn! Alice: You see, I was following...
Doorknob: Rather good, what? Doorknob, turn?...
