Brooke Shields - 1980 - The Muppet Show


Falling

What a fantastical feathery feeling
I'm falling
Slowly revolving and spinning and reeling
I'm falling
Curious creatures with curious features appear and fade
Constant surprises are greeting your eyes
There's a jar of orange marmalade

Hey there, Miss Alice, if you're near the palace
Just drop in
If you're really racin' that rabbit you're chasin'
Get hoppin'
Squawking flamingoes and cool Cheshire Cat
Up where you fell from, there's nothing like that
You're in for adventure as soon as you've finished your falling

There's a footman with a face like a fish's
And a Duchess with a cook who keeps breaking the dishes
A caterpillar on a mushroom who's smoking a hookah
Hookah, hookah, lookah that hookah
A teapot that has a mouse in it
Things get madder and madder by the minute

Wait 'til the scene where the crazy old Queen wants your head off
Feels like you're bound to a merry-go-round you can't get off
Don't be surprised if you meet Captain Hook
'Cause our version won't always follow the book
Get set for adventure as soon as you've finished your falling


These are the Yolks

At the risk of laying a bomb with you
Or at least a little bomblet
I'd like to announce
I'm preparing to play
The lead in Shakespeare's Omelette

These are the yolks, folks
These are the yolks
Yuck yuck
Tough luck
Cluck cluck
We're stuck
These are the yolks

Some people say that the way I tell jokes
Is very coarse to human
So tomorrow I go
To a studio
To record my first record albumen

These are the yolks, folks
These are the yolks
Yuck yuck
Tough luck
Cluck cluck
We're stuck
These are the yolks


Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - 1983 - Nippon Animation/Apollo Film


Theme Song (original English version) - Lady Lily

Why do rabbits run?
Where do turtles cry?
And did you know it's fun
To see the cat's head fly?
There's a distant country
Where peculiar things take place

Just ask Alice, Alice in Wonderland
Alice, Alice in Wonderland
Lives in a world of mystery, make-believe, ooh-ooh
Yes it's Alice, Alice in Wonderland
Alice, Alice in Wonderland
Alice, so full of fantasy

See the Queen of Hearts
And the fish that walk
There are playing cards
And all the animals talk
Did you know the Hatter has a tea party every day?

Just ask Alice, Alice in Wonderland
Alice, Alice in Wonderland
Lives in a world of mystery, make-believe, ooh-ooh
Yes it's Alice, Alice in Wonderland
Alice, Alice in Wonderland
Alice, so full of fantasy

Take the magic journey
There is so much for you to see

Just ask Alice, Alice in Wonderland
Alice, Alice in Wonderland
Lives in a world of mystery, make-believe, ooh-ooh
Yes it's Alice, Alice in Wonderland
Alice, Alice in Wonderland
Alice, so full of fantasy


Theme Song (English dub credits version)

Who can that girl be?
Her eyes are open wide
And yet she's in a daydream
That's better than real life
She knows a secret country
Where the grown-ups never go

Why, she's Alice, Alice in Wonderland
Alice, Alice in Wonderland
Curious friends and happy adventures too
Yes she's Alice, Alice in Wonderland
Alice, Alice in Wonderland
Alice, wait for us, we'll come too


Chorus of the Flowers

Come along and listen to the ragtime floral choir
We're the best in Wonderland; our voices never tire
And if the friendly sun is out, we'll sing the whole day long
So if you think you can harmonise
Join right in; we'll try you out for size

We're the best in Wonderland; we're always in good voice
If you want a blooming choir, you've really got no choice
We are hardy annuals; we sing come rain or shine
We don't stop singing when it starts to rain
'Cause we know the sun will come right out again


The Caucus Race

In caucus everything is always upside-down
The caucus runners never ever show a frown
The prizes always handed out before the race
So at the end there's no one with a sad, long face

A-ring-a-ring-a-ring-a-race is always fun
The ring-a-ring-a-racers dry off in the sun
In caucus everything is always upside-down
The caucus runners never ever show a frown

Let us, let us run along
Along and sing the caucus song

In caucus everything is always upside-down
The caucus runners never ever show a frown
A-ring-a-ring-a-ring-a-race is always fun
The ring-a-ring-a-racers dry off in the sun

Lalalalalalalalalalalala ...

On the Waves of the Sea

Oh, what fun to cross the waves
It's the life the sailor craves
Clean, fresh air and wholesome grub
Always polished, clean and scrub

On we sail through wind and gale
Sometimes ill and sometimes ail
We like the life at sea, at sea
On the waves, on the waves
Of the sea


Alice Through the Looking Glass - 1987 - Burbank Films

Lyrics by Will Ryan

In Looking Glass Land - Janet Waldo

I can hardly believe my eyes
I really don't know what to think
It's all such a lovely surprise
And it's happened as quick as a wink

It doesn't seem like a dream
No I'm sure it's real
Though it's hard to understand
Still I feel so happy
Here in Looking Glass Land

It's so wonderful looking around
I really don't know what to say
'Cause this colourful land that I've found
Wasn't here when I woke up today

It doesn't seem like a dream
No I'm sure it's real
Though it's hard to understand
Still I feel so happy
Here in Looking Glass Land

In Looking Glass Land


Nothing Is Impossible - Townsend Coleman

Now running faster than you can is really simple as can be
Try going slower first and then just do the opposite you see
If you think it can't be done the problem's only in your mind
So all you have to do is change it and you'll find

That nothing is impossible
No, nothing is impossible at all
Now you may think that isn't so
Ah, but I've seen enough to know
That nothing is impossible at all
No, nothing is impossible at all

Now getting North by heading South is such an easy trick to learn
Just don't forget before you get there to return
Oh falling up is elementary when you're outside in your room
And you'd agree at once if you would just assume

That nothing is impossible
No, nothing is impossible at all
Now you may think that isn't so
Ah, but I've seen enough to know
That nothing is impossible at all
No, nothing is impossible at all


Nobility - Townsend Coleman and Janet Waldo

From your lofty throne
Address the crowd
Demand their loyalty

That makes me groan
I'd be more proud
If I earned my loyalty

With sceptre high
Demand esteem
Make them kneel to you

I'd rather not try
To act supreme
That's not how I feel, do you?

Nobility, that's what you've got to learn
Nobility is something I must earn

Be sure that praise is all you take
A Queen must never be wrong

And go for days without mistake?
Oh, I should live so long!

Nobility, that's what you've got to learn
Nobility is something I must earn

Be cold as ice
I'd rather be nice
Always disagree
But that's not me
Tax the people blind
That's so unkind
Be wise as a sage
I'll act my age
Be tough and hard-bitten
I'll be soft as a kitten
Be shifty and sly
I won't even try
Yell and scream a bit!
I wouldn't dream of it!
There's nothing to it
I just couldn't do it

To wear a crown and rule the land
Takes more than civility
When a person's down and you lend a hand
Now that's nobility

Nobility, that's what you've got to learn
Nobility is something I must earn


Tweedledum and Tweedledee - Jonathan Winters

We're Tweedledum and Tweedledee
I look like him
He looks like me
We think alike
But disagree
We're Tweedledum and Tweedledee
We're Tweedledum and Tweedledee

Say, how come you always get top billing?

Sorry, we're Tweedledee and Tweedledum
A quarrelsome consortium
We argue some
No you do, chum
We're Tweedledee and Tweedledum
Better known as Tweedledum and Tweedledee

We just found out the other day
We each have one twin brother
So incredibly we're forced to say
We're related to each other

No!
Yes!

'Cause we're Tweedledum and Tweedledee
I look alike
And so does he
An amazing similarity
We're Tweedledum and Tweedledee
We're Tweedledum...

Say, have we met before?

Sure, we're Tweedledum and Tweedledee

Oh yeah, we're Tweedledum and Tweedledee


You Just Gotta Be What You Are - George Gobel

I dreamed I'd be forty feet high
Instead I'm this shrimp of a guy
I'm not spooky and scary
Or yucky and hairy
There must be a good reason why

I planned to be some dinosaur
Breathe fire, grumble and roar
But it wasn't to be
I guess you can see
I'm just a good egg and no more

Oh, you just gotta be what you are
Don't aim too high or too far
You're better I've found
With both feet on the ground
You just gotta be what you are

You can strive, you can you reach
And then miss the gold ring
But twelve centuries from now
It just won't mean a thing

Don't try to be something you're not
You don't have to have a whole lot
Don't sit around moping
Just wishing and hoping
Make the best of whatever you've got

Oh, you just gotta be what you are
Don't aim too high or too far
And if you don't make it
Then don't try to fake it
You just gotta be what you are

Everybody!

You just gotta be what you are
Don't aim too high or too far
You're better I've found
With both feet on the ground
You just gotta be what you are
You just gotta be what you are


We're bad! - Clive Revill, Hal Smith and Mr. T

We work for that crazy Red Queen
We're the lowest and meanest of mean
We're bad!
Me too! Me too!

We'll tear all our victims apart
Our evil is state of the art
We're bad!
And don't forget me!

I'm Bandersnatch with breath of flame
I burned up towns to gain my fame
I'm Jabberwock, my game's the same
We're bad!
We're bad!

We'll plot and we'll plan and conspire
To set the whole country on fire
We're bad!
And so's the Snark!

And then when it's lying in ruin
More mischief we soon will be brewing
We're bad!
No more than me!

As Jabberwock I do my worst
To show we're first among the cursed
In rottenness we are immersed
We're bad!
I'm awful!

Untrustworthy, scheming and tricky
We're totally slimy and icky
As opposed to this wimp
Who simply is absurd
What a nerd!
Hey, I resent that!

With hostility we must remark
We're terrifying lords of dark
We'll zap you out just for a lark
We're bad!

The Jabberwock, the Bandersnatch
Hey, and don't forget the Snark
Who?
Me!
We're bad!


The Care Bears Adventure in Wonderland - 1987 - Nelvana

Lyrics by John Sebastian and Maribeth Soloman

Rise and Shine - Natalie Cole

It's getting light
The sun is saying
Goodbye to the night
And letting a brand new day in

It's warming up
Let it shine through you
Come and fill your cup
A bear's gotta do what a bear's gotta do

Rise and shine, get aglow
'Cause you know you're gonna shine
Like the star you are, you are
You know the sun's gonna rise in your eyes
Even though it's kinda bright
It'll light your way to a brand new day
OK, everybody rise and shine today

Raise a paw, move a jaw
Rustle just a bit of fur
Give a grr, that's it, now move
A little bit to the left, to the right
Raise the curtain so the light's
Coming right your way
Hey hey, another day

Rise and shine, get aglow
'Cause you know you're gonna shine
Like the star you are, you are
You know the sun's gonna rise in your eyes
Even though it's kinda bright
It'll light your way to a brand new day
OK, everybody rise and shine today

Rise and shine, rise and shine
Everybody rise and shine
Everybody rise and shine today


Have You Seen This Girl? - John Sebastian

We got to get together
Got to use our minds
We got to find this girl
And there's not much time

We got to travel light
We'll go from place to place
Asking everybody "have you seen this face?"

Has anybody seen this girl?
She's so young and small
Has anybody seen this girl?
She's about this tall
We might have to look all over the world
Has anybody seen this girl?

Here's a little picture
For a quick reminder
I'm hoping you might have a clue
Does she look a little bit like someone you know?
Does she look a little bit like you?

Has anybody seen this girl?
She's so young and small
Has anybody seen this girl?
She's about this tall
We might have to look all over the world
Has anybody seen this girl?

Has anybody seen this girl?


Wonderland - John Sebastian

Somewhere in your mind's eye
There is some place you have never been
Welcome to the strangest place
You've ever been a stranger in

Dreams might give you a clue
Close your eyes, it's here for you

But everybody's crazy here in Wonderland
You have to be a bit insane
To sit and watch a house fly away and land
Beside a field of sugar cane

Call it crazy if you please
We're as happy as can be

'Cause everybody's crazy here in Wonderland
You simply won't believe your eyes
'Cause if you've never been, you wouldn't understand
You couldn't in a million tries

You'll see some combinations no one ever sees
There's nothing even normal 'bout a swarm of bees

And I sure hope I can get back to Wonderland
I sure hope you can get back to Wonderland
And I sure hope you can get back to Wonderland
Come back to Wonderland
Come back to Wonderland
Come back, come back
Come back to Wonderland


Use Your Head - John Stocker

Who's phat and flashy
With the big green eyes?
Who knows it all
And can put you wise?

You know I see that Princess
In a lonely room
Where the Wizard's got her locked away
Now he's one bad dude
He's in a nasty mood
And he wants to be the King someday

Now I can see the Mad Hatter
He's tryin' to help
He wants to set that Princess free
He got lots of hats
But he's really bats
You know it just isn't meant to be

So if you're gonna find that Princess
Then split this group in two
A few of you get Alice to the Palace
And the rest, here's what to do

You don't need to go up
You don't need to go down
But remember what this cat said
You just go where your high top sneakers sneak
And don't forget to use your head
Uh huh, I said don't forget to use your head
No no, don't forget to use your head


The King of Wonderland - Colin Fox

Now, Wonderland needs improving
It's just too impossibly odd
Someone must get a few changes moving
And I'm just the man for the job

Now, don't you ever wonder 'bout Wonderland
How everything is upside down?
The creatures are so crazy in their Wonderland
They don't know that it's turned around

Everything is all askew
But I could change a thing or two

And don't you ever wonder 'bout Wonderland
How everything is so confused?
Everything's disorganized in Wonderland
There should be just a few strict rules

Everything is turned around
Someone needs to tone it down

And wouldn't it be wonderful if Wonderland
Were underneath a metal dome?
The traffic would be minimised in Wonderland
With everyone locked up at home

Plants and creatures well in hand
We'll make the colors much more bland
With everything at my command

When I'm the King of Wonderland
When I'm the King of Wonderland


Mad About Hats - Keith Hampshire

Now, a hat is a wonderful thing, you see
Every one's got its own personality
You just slip it on and instantly
You can be anybody that you wanna be

You like hats?
I'm mad about hats

Now, say I wanna be like W.C.
I just slip this on and magically
There's something strange comes over me
"Anything for you, my little chickadee"

You like hats?
I'm mad about hats

Now, some of these hats aren't mad at all
Some are quite reserved, some are quiet and small
Some are more daring; they laugh at fate
It's a matter of taste, but it must be great

You like hats?
I'm mad about hats

Now it's amazing how a hat can change your style
You can go high fashion, you can go hog wild!
You can try on hats from all over the world
I got hats for boys
Hats for girls
I got hats for the working man
Hats for fun
Hats for the winter and
Hats for the sun
Hats for the hunter and
Hats for the game
Hats for the little girl who lives down the lane

You like hats?
I'm mad about hats


Use Your Heart - John Stocker

Now just one sec
What's that I hear?
You're gonna give up now
When you're gettin' so near?

After all this time
And comin' all this way
You gettin' far too close to stop
Get a grip on this rock
And get a grip on yourself
If you're gonna make it to the top

Be brave, little Alice
Believe in yourself
'Cause here's the most important part
While the others all remember to use their heads
You just remember to use your heart
That's right, remember to use your heart
Uh huh, I said remember to use your heart
That's right, you remember to use your heart


Grumpy Rap - Bob Dermer and John Stocker

Now, hold your tooshie tags
It's time I spoke
Can't remember when I ate last
I've been starvin' since we've started
And that's no joke
Man, I was fadin' fast

So don't you dare say nothin'
Just leave me alone
With my tummy and my yummy treats
Where I'm fillin' up my belly
With ice cream and jelly
And toppin' it with pickled beets, mmm-mmm
Uh huh, toppin' it with pickled beets
Oh yeah, toppin' it with pickled beets

Yo, Grumpy Bear
I gotta hand it to you
You're talkin' like my main man
I love your ton
And it's been fun
Workin' with the Care Bear clan

You helped Alice and the Princess
And the Queen of Hearts
And did right by my man Stan
You put the Wizard in his place
Now everything's safe
Everything in Wonderland

I dropped by to see you cats and bears
And say thanks to you from me
But I'll say "see you round"
After I chow down
With the Care Bear family
Have a spread with the Care Bear family
A few munchies with the Care Bear family

Uh huh, I am so hungry
I can't wait to eat, uh-huh
With the Care Bear family
That's right, the Care Bear family


Alice in Wonderland - 1988 - Burbank Films Australia

Lyrics by Mark Isaacs

Theme Song - Kerrie Biddell

Alice
It's a wonder you know who you are
'Cause you've been travelling far
You're off to that other land
Oh, Alice
You just won't believe what you'll see
But in your world you'll be free
To dream the dreams you want to
To dream all the dreams you need to
To dream the dreams you long for

Alice
You say "how did it happen to me?"
But in your world you're still free
To dream those dreams you want to
To dream all the dreams you need to
To dream the dreams you long for
Oh, Alice
