[intro; see tab at end of file]

F#                 F#        G                   G
One pill makes you larger and one pill makes you small
        F#                F#             G              G
And the ones that mother gives you don't do anything at all
       A       C     -      D         A     A
Go ask Alice     when she's ten feet tall

       F#             F#              G                    G
And if you go chasing rabbits and you know you're going to fall
           F#             F#             G              G
Tell 'em a hookah-smoking caterpillar has given you the call
     A       C  -   D            A     A
Call Alice     when she was just small

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

     F#           F#           G             G
When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead
        F#                      F#                G                        G
And the White Knight is talking backwards and the Red Queen's off with her head
  A     C    -    D        A 
Remember what the dormouse said:
A  -  E         A     A - E         A    A  A.
      feed your head,     feed your head
