I'm Late (from "Alice in Wonderland")

play music pause music
mute music

Music by Sammy Fain | Lyrics by Bob Hilliard

I'm Late, I'm Late
for a very important date,
No time to say hello, goodbye,
I'm late, I'm late, I'm late
and when I wave,
I lose the time I save.
My fuzzy ears and whiskers
took me too much time to shave.
I run and then I hop, hop, hop,
I wish that I could fly.
Theres danger if I dare to stop
and heres the reason why,
(you see) I'm overdue.
I'm in a rabbit stew,
Cant even say goodbye, hello,
I'm late, I'm late, I'm late.
Good morning Mister Chatterbox
I'd love to stoop and chatter,
but in six and seven eighth minutes
I must meet with the mad Hatter
the mad, mad, mad, mad Hatter.
We must chat about a very important matter.
I'm off to see the Queen of hearts
who lives up in the palace,
and the very moment I'm through with her
I've got a date with Alice.
I can't be late for Alice
or the queen of hearts who lives up in the palace.
I'm late.

From: the Walt Disney Productions animated movie "Alice In Wonderland" (1951).

I am late, rabbit with a watch
