There's a wonderland in Alice. It lies in her sleepy eyes.
May she dream about a queen, turtle soup so rich
and an ever changing size.
And the wonderland in Alice gives her an itch to explore.
She'll uncover poetry and a little golden key
to unlock each waiting door.
All the wonderland in Alice brims with her hopes
Let her stop to have a chat with a grinning Cheshire cat
and be carried along by her tears.
There's a wonderland in Alice - a quick wit,
heart and soul
when she takes a sneaky look
deep down inside a book
or deep down a rabbit-hole.
