Jefferson Airplane "White Rabbit" (Live on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour)




"White Rabbit" was written and performed by Grace Slick while she was still with the Great Society. Slick quit them and joined Jefferson Airplane to replace their departing female singer, Signe Toly Anderson, who left the band with the birth of her child. The first album Slick recorded with Jefferson Airplane was Surrealistic Pillow, and Slick provided two songs from her previous group: her own "White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love", written by her brother-in-law Darby Slick and recorded under the title "Someone to Love" by the Great Society.




Lyrics


One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small

And the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all


Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall


And if you go chasing rabbits, and you know you're going to fall

Tell 'em a hookah-smoking caterpillar has given you the call


And call Alice, when she was just small


When the men on the chessboard get up and tell you where to go

And you've just had some kind of mushroom, and your mind is moving low


Go ask Alice, I think she'll know


When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead

And the white knight is talking backwards

And the red queen's off with her head

Remember what the dormouse said

Feed your head, feed your head



Songwriters: Grace Wing Slick
