"White Rabbit" as written by and Grace Wing Slick....
One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that your mother gives you
Don't do anything at all
Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits
Then you know you're going to fall
Tell them a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
He called Alice
When she was just small

When men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know

When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's "off with her head!"
Remember what the dormouse said:
"Feed your head"
"Feed your head"

    General CommentClearly, this song is about Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass (two of my favorite books.) However this is originally a Jefferson Airplanes song isn't it?

    General CommentIt is a Jefferson Airplane song and its about tripping out on happy pills. However, there is an obvious Alice in Wonderland influence, but that story was written by a kiddie diddler with an obsession over a little girl. It kind of is amusing that a band like CXS covered this one.. great song though.
