Alice Lyrics (Danny Elfman)

I noticed there are a lot of places on the internet where you can supposedly find these same lyrics, however, none of them seem to get the words quite right. I listened to the soundtrack a great many times on loud volume, and am convinced the following are correct. Therefore, I suggest you stick to these!

Alice’s Theme:

Oh, Alice dear, where have you been?
So near, so far, so in-between.
What have you heard, what have you seen?
Alice. Alice. Please, Alice.

Oh, tell us, are you big or small?
To try this one, or try them all.
It’s such a long, long way to fall.
Alice. Alice. Oh, Alice.

How can you know, this way, not that?
You choose the door, you choose the path.
Perhaps you should be coming back.
Another day. Another day.
And nothing is quite what it seems.
You’re dreaming, are you dreaming?
Oh, Alice.

Alice.

Oh, how will you find your way? (2x)
No time for tears today. (4x)

So many doors, how did you choose?
So much to win, so much to lose.
So many things got in your way.
No time today. No time today.
Be careful not to lose your head.
Remember what the dormouse said.
Alice.

Did someone pull you by the hand?
How many miles to Wonderland?
Please tell us, so we’ll understand.
Alice. Alice. Oh, Alice.

Oh, how will you find your way? (2x)

Alice Reprise #1:

Oh, how will you find your way? (2x)

Alice Reprise #2:

Oh, Alice dear, where have you been?
So near, so far, so in-between.
What have you heard, what have you seen?
Alice. Alice. Please, Alice.

The Cheshire Cat:

Oh, how will you find your way?

Alice Reprise #3:

[Latin (?) to the tune of “How can you know” through “are you dreaming?” from Alice’s Theme]
Alice.

Alice Decides

[Latin (?) to the tune of “So many doors” through “lose your head” from Alice’s Theme]

Alice Reprise #4:

Oh, Alice dear, where have you been?
So near, so far, so in-between.
What have you heard, what have you seen?
Alice. Alice. Please, Alice.

Oh, tell us, are you big or small?
To try this one, or try them all.
It’s such a long, long way to fall.
Alice. Alice. Please, Alice.

Alice Reprise #5:

[‘Lalala’ to the tune of “Oh, Alice dear” through “what have you seen?” from Alice’s Theme]
Alice. Alice. Please, Alice.

[‘Lalala’ to the tune of “Oh, tell us” through “long way to fall” from Alice’s Theme]
Alice. Alice. Oh, Alice.

Oh, how will you find your way? (2x)

[Latin (?) to the tune of “How can you know” through “are you dreaming?” from Alice’s Theme]
Alice.

Did someone pull you by the hand?
How many miles to Wonderland?
Please tell us, so we’ll understand.
Alice. Alice. Oh, Alice

Oh, how will you find your way? (2x)

    My ardent thanks for painstakingly relistening to the songs to get the lyrics right. I also noted words wrong on other sources, and this Alice score, like Coraline (though that one’s apparently truly nonsense words), means a lot to me.

    If anyone figures out the Latin (?) parts, I’d love to know the words and meanings. But this is a fantastic resource for the Alice lyrics. Thank you again!

    I know from personal experience how hard and time consuming it can be to get lyrics this way. So, Thanks for your work.
