Lyrics

When Alice was in Wonderland, what do you think she found?

A tea party out in the woods, with nothing else around.

The table could seat lots of guests, but there were only three.

The hatter, hare, and dormouse at the topsy turvy tea.


The hatter had a platter of crisp cookies by his side.

Which, instead of sharing nicely, he did his best to hide.

"Too bad there are no cookies," he said unconvincingly.

Then, he covered them with napkins at the topsy turvy tea.


"All change places!"


The march hare was also there and doing something wrong.

Instead of sipping sweetly, she stacked sugarcubes with tongs.

"Ting a tong a tix pix," she said quite merrily.

Then, the sugarcubes came tumbling at the topsy turvy tea.


The sleepy little dormouse knew he should sit up straight.

Instead, he just kept slumping, till he face was on his plate.

"I think I need another nap," he hung quite noisily.

And then, he started snoring at the topsy turvy tea.


"All change places!"


And that is how the party continued through the day.

Up and down and round and round in such a silly way.

If you go to a party, please act better than these three.

The hatter, hare, and dormouse.

"Oh, please try not to snore mouse"

The hatter, hare, and dormouse at the topsy turvy tea!
