Oh, what had become of Alice,
Who went down a hole following a white rabbit?
Who fell in Wonderland and went through the looking glass?
And whose curiosity was her worst habit?
Oh, what had become of Wendy,
Who flew out the window following a boy,
To a place called Never land, with mermaids,
And pirates shouting ahoy!
Oh, what had become of Little Red Riding Hood,
Who went down to her grandmother's house?
Where a wolf ate her and her grandmother
And a hunter had to take them out?
Oh, what become of these three?
These young innocent girls
Who grew up, leaving their childhood
For men and dresses with twirls.
The theme is of loss of childhood.
