Welcome Queen Alice [song lyrics]


Song lyrics to Welcome Queen Alice, Music by Steve Allen, Lyrics by Lewis Carroll, Performed by Red Buttons and Natalie Gregory in Alice in Wonderland 1985

To the looking-glass world it was Alice that said:
I’ve a sceptre in hand, I’ve a crown on my head.
Let the looking-glass creatures, whatever they be
Come dine with the Red Queen, the White Queen, and me.

Then fill up the glasses as quick as you can,
And sprinkle the table with buttons and bran,
Put cats in the coffee, and mice in the tea,
And welcome Queen Alice with thirty-times-three!

O looking-glass creatures, I pray, draw near!
‘Tis an honor to see me, a favor to hear.
‘Tis a privilege high to have dinner and tea,
With the Red Queen, the White Queen and me.

Then fill up all the glasses with treacle and ink,
Or anything else that is pleasant to drink.
Mix sand with the cider, and wool with the wine,
And welcome Queen Alice with ninety-times-nine!
