Words & Music:



Correspondent Rita learned this as "Mildred" instead of "Alice", ca. 1960, with the first line given in the more formal:  "Mildred, where art thou going?"


C             G7      C

"Alice, where are you going?"

    G                C

"Upstairs, to take a bath."


Alice, with legs like toothpicks

      G         D7    G7

And a neck like a giraffe!





Alice got in the bathtub,

G7                   C

Alice pulled out the plug.

[n.c. spoken]

Oh, my gracious!  Oh, my soul!

There goes Alice down the hole!


C             G7      C

"Alice, where are you going?"

G      G7     C

Blub!  Blub!  Blub!
