We are in a lot of trouble
We are in a lot of trouble
We are in a lot of trouble
We are in a lot of trouble

Very seldom await the love that I call trouble
Very seldom await the love that I call trouble
Very seldom await the love that I call trouble
Very seldom await the love that I call trouble
Very seldom await the love that I call trouble
That I
Very seldom await the love that I call trouble
That I
Very seldom await the love that I call trouble
That I
Very seldom await the love that I call trouble
That I
The love
The love
The love
The love

Very seldom await the love that I call trouble
Very seldom await the love that I call trouble
Very seldom await the love that I call trouble
Very seldom await the love that I call trouble
Very seldom await the love that I call trouble
That I
Very seldom await the love that I call trouble
That I
Very seldom await the love that I call trouble
That I
Very seldom await the love that I call trouble
That I
The love
The love
The love
The love

    General CommentI don't think he actually meant for words to be heard but I heard them anyway.

    General Commentthey are not words..they are 90% of electronically mixed words from the movie. ...mixed.

    General CommentI agree, I don't think this song was intended to have intelligible words in it.

    However, I hear "Mary's so lonely, she loves to talk of the devil."

    General CommentI think I've broken down the sections of song Alice sings in the order they are in the song. The parts in the brackets are cut out, but I wrote them in to give context of where these bits were coming from.

    alon[g]
    should ha[ve]

    My InterpretationWhat I hear:

    [Intro] x4
    We too, we love
    Oh the trouble

    [Main] x4
    There is a long way (too long)
    That I hope you travel

    [Main Variation] x4
    There is a long way (too long)
    But you won't travel (But I..)

    [Bridge] x4
    Too long

    Lyric CorrectionThis is completely WRONG.

    It a morphing of a section in "Alice In Wonderland".

    When she is singing "Very Good Advice".

    Which are:

    I give myself very good advice,
    But I very seldom follow it,
    That explains the trouble that I'm always in,
    Be patient, is very good advice,
    But the waiting makes me curious,
    And I'd love the change,
    Should something strange begin,
    Well I went along my merry way,
    And I never stopped to reason,
    I should have know there'd be a price to pay,
    Someday...someday,
    I give myself very good advice,
    But I very seldom follow it,
    Will I ever learn to do the things I should?
    Will I ever learn to do the things I should?



    It just morphed. Into nothing but a beat.

    General CommentANYWAY.

    you guys. before posting the same shit everyone else has, read at least one of my posts. i'll just copy & paste one: "well of course these aren't the words from the movie! I'm well aware of that and I remember the "I very seldom follow it" part - I watched the movie before posting this. the thing is, though, that Pogo didn't make it sound like "very seldom". When he put together different parts, he made the words sound completely different altogether! I know he didn't make it so that it sounded like this, in fact, I read on his blog-site that he doesn't intend to put in any lyrics at all to his songs, but he also said that it's totally up to our imagination to decide what it says. and this is what came to me in my head."

    anyway, I put this up because I was interested in comparing different people's interpretations. That was the fun part. but I guess I'll just change this to instrumental if people are gonna be pissy.
