Merrily the breezes blow!
(We’re in Wonderland, you know.)
Merrily the hoops are spinning!
(Hats, are they? well, it’s no matter;
All the better for the hatter.)
Can you tell me which is winning?
Red or blue? I wager red.
Ladies first! But Master Ned
Won’t be far behind Miss Alice.
When the pretty race is run,
They’ll put on their hoops what fun!
And go home to Wonder Place
