"The Caucus Race" is a song from the 1951 version of Alice in Wonderland.

Lyrics

Demo version

Ev'rybody take your place

Before we start the caucus race

With your wings and feet and fins

Soon the race begins

Bugs and birds caught in the rain

Will race until they're dry again

When you hear them sneeze and cough

They're off!

They're off!

They're o-o-o-o-off!


Forward, backward, inward, outward

Bottom to the top

Makes no difference where you run as long as you don't stop

Since there is no finish line

You might wear out your shoes

But when the race is over

No one ever seems to lose!

Prizes!

Prizes!

Prizes, prizes, prizes!


Backward, forward, skipping, hopping through the slithy toves

Some will take a rowboat when they reach the borogoves

Run and race, pretend you're chasing

Pretty butterflies

Hail the caucus race where everybody wins a prize

Hail the caucus race where everybody wins a prize!

Original version

All: Forward, backward, inward, outward

Come and join the chase!

Nothing could be drier

Than a jolly caucus-race.

Backward, forward, outward, inward

Bottom to the top,

Never a beginning

There can never be a stop

Dodo: To skipping, hopping, tripping, clopping

Fancy free and gay,

I started it tomorrow,

but I'll finish yesterday.

All: Round and round and round we go

And dance forevermore,

Once we were behind

But now we find we are be-

Dodo: Forward, backward, inward, outward,

Come and join the chase!

All: Nothing could be drier than a jolly caucus-race.



===Reprise version===



All: Forward, backward, inward, outward


Here we go again!


No one ever loses and no one can ever win.


Backward, forward, outward, inward


Bottom to the top...
