Tonight's party theme was "Alice in Wonderland", and my song was from the end, where Alice grows up very tall and realizes that a deck of cards isn't actually particularly threatening. It hasn't got a title yet (suggestions welcome). I'm really pleased with the melody, it came out well--a little Aimee Mannish, I think. I'll probably fiddle with the words some more, though, if I ever perform it again.

Am               C
A child sees the morning sun
Dm
All day
Bb
Child's play
Am        C                  G      Em
Fills the world she's always known
Am           C
But the afternoon has come
Dm
It's all changed
Bb
All strange
    Am          C                G     Em
The child finds out that she has grown
           Am  C  Em  G
All on her own
      
        F            G
        A my name is Alice
                C                 Am
        Say say playmate come and play with me
        F             G    
        Mother may I, Simon says
             C              Am
        Down in the valley, one-two-three
        F             G
        Ring o'Rosie, Jack be quick
            C                Am
        Red rover, queen bee follow me
        Em             G     F
        Olly olly oxen free
                  Am    C  Em  G
        Olly oxen free

She's amazed how far she sees
Miles high
In the sky
The world spread out like toys below
A million possibilities
All new
Things to do
And now the child can't wait to go
And say hello

        A my name is Alice... etc

Carry on without her now
Play the games
All the same
She wouldn't want it any other way
She's grown too tall to be
Living in
Fantasy
She'll find some other game to play
And that's okay

        A my name is Alice... etc
        (repeat last line three times, and close on unresolved Em)
