Because Alice is a horse!

The Rattle Song
To the tune of “London Bridge”
Shake it high and shake it low.
Shake it high. Shake it low.
Shake it high and shake it low.
That’s how the rattle goes.
Shake it fast and shake it slow.
Shake it fast. Shake it slow.
Shake it fast and shake it slow.
That’s how the rattle goes
