Alice in Wonderland

First session

Listening and reading. Let's sing!

Oh, Alice, dear where have you been?
So near, so far or in between?
What have you heard what have you seen?
Alice, Alice, please, Alice!

Oh, tell us, are you big or small
To try this one or try them all
It's such a long, long way to fall
Alice, Alice, oh, Alice

How can you know this way not that?
You choose the door you choose the path
Perhaps you should be coming back
Another day, another day

And nothing is quite what it seems
You're dreaming. Are you dreaming? oh, Alice!


(Oh, how will you find your way? Oh, how will you find your way?)
(No time for tears today. No time for tears today.)

So many doors, How did you choose
So much to gain, so much to lose
So many things got in your way
No time today, no time today
Be careful not to lose your head
Just think of what the doormouse said, Alice!

Did someone pull you by the hand?
How many miles to Wonderland?
Please tell us so well understand
Alice Alice Oh, Alice!

(Oh how will you find you way? Oh, how will you find you way?)
