White Rabbit is a song by Joe Hawley, written by Grace Slick, and is an interpretation of the song of the same name by Jefferson Airplane.

An audio only version of the song, described as a "redux", was uploaded to Joe Hawley's YouTube page on the 31st of October 2017.[1] And an audio-only video of the vocoded vocals were uploaded to the channel on December 9th, 2017.[2]

Trivia[edit]

  • Similarly to We Are in Space, the track was not available in the Bandcamp version, this was most likely due to copyright reasons.
  • Grace Slick cited Maurice Ravel's Bolero as an inspiration for the song in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. Coincidentally, Tally Hall briefly covered Bolero in a short scene in the South by Southwest 2007 episode of their Internet Show.


Lyrics[edit]

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
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
