    There's a song by Jefferson Airplane called White Rabbit. It's about Alice in Wonderland, how Alice takes drugs and suddenly feels ten feet tall and things like that. The book's title is Go Ask Alice because of the 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.

    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. Feed your head" .
