Advice from a Caterpillar Lyrics

9. Advice from a Caterpillar (8:11)
She thought it was an afternoon
Just alike the other notes
Weary in the grass she laid
Picking daisies under the sun

She sat down on the grass
The she peeped into a book
And the weather was so hot
She was getting bored

A rabbit with pink eyes
Started running close by her
Shortly after she heard it saying
“Oh, dear! I shall be too late!”

She realized
That it could actually talk
But the oddest thing it was
It was staring at its clock

“And now the tale is done
And home we steer, a merry crew,
Beneath the setting sun.”
Pilgrims plucked in a far-off land

Shrinking and then growing tall
Trying to find her way back home
Nothing there seemed to be clear
So she drowned in a pool of tears

“Follow me! Wake up! Why?
We are all mad here!”

A duchess, a hatter
A grinning Chesire cat
The mushroom that I ate
Will make me shrink or grow?

The queen keeps on saying
“Off, off with her head”
The frog and the fish-footman
Don’t want me to come in

I cannot find my way home
I am exploring this strange, odd world
The blue caterpillar asked who am I
But I don’t know, don’t know no more

“Begin at the beginning…
And go on until you go to the end”

“Wake up, oh Alice dear!
What a long sleep you had”
“I’ve had a curious dream”
I’m gonna tell you right now
A duchess, a rat and a
A grinning Chesire cat…
