Can't you see
Love and affection
When it's put
In you direction
Wrapped in your mysterious wonderland

No fast car
Can make you grow up
Gentlemen
You think you've sewn up
Locked in your wonderful wonderland

No dark horse like me can cramp all of your style
Too plain and simple I am for your file
One day you will break out of your spell
And some day you will want me for your own
And I'll say welcome to reality

All this talk
Of late night parties
Flirting with the lower gentry
Lost in your magical wonderland

Out of depth
Out of class
Phase of your life
Will come to pass
Caught in this tragic wonderland

All of the riches that shine will turn sour
Each moment you slip you will bring near the hour
And one day you will break out of your spell
And some day you will want me for your own
And I'll say welcome to reality

Wrapped in your mysterious wonderland

Caught in your superficial
Nonexistent
Fairy story
Wonderland

Caught in your tragic wonderland
Wonderland
