"Phantomwise" as written by John Robert Cardwell, Philip Abram Dickey and William Lincoln Knauer....
Still she haunts me, phantomwise,
Alice moving under skies
Never seen by waking eyes she dies
Still she haunts me, phantomwise

A boat beneath a sunny sky
In an evening of July
Autumn frosts have slain July
Still she haunts me, phantomwise

Getting sick of the way that I feel
Getting sick of these thoughts that aren't real
You can't have me, can't have me, can't have me back
You can't have me, can't have me, can't have me back
She's mine, she's mine tonight

In a Wonderland she lies
Dreaming as the days go by
Dreaming as the summer dies;
Still she haunts me, phantomwise

Getting sick of the way that I feel
Getting sick of these thoughts that aren't real
You can't have me, can't have me, can't have me back
You can't have me, can't have me, can't have me back
She's mine, she's mine tonight
She's mine, she's mine tonight

    Lyric Correctionheyooo thanks for putting these up, but there are a couple mistakes (checked with the original Lewis Carroll poem)

    Still she haunts me, phantomwise,
    Alice moving under skies
    Never seen by waking eyes she dies
    Still she haunts me, phantomwise

    A boat beneath a sunny sky
    In an evening of July
    Autumn frosts have slain July
    Still she haunts me, phantomwise

    Getting sick of the way that I feel
    Getting sick of these thoughts that aren't real
    You can't have me, can't have me, can't have me back
    You can't have me, can't have me, can't have me back
    She's mine, she's mine tonight

    In a Wonderland she lies
    Dreaming as the days go by
    Dreaming as the summer dies;
    Still she haunts me, phantomwise

    Getting sick of the way that I feel
    Getting sick of these thoughts that aren't real
    You can't have me, can't have me, can't have me back
    You can't have me, can't have me, can't have me back
    She's mine, she's mine tonight
    She's mine, she's mine tonight

    General CommentGetting Weezer-vibes off this song, and most of the album. Love it.
    Also love all the literary connections SSLYBY pull in their songs.
