Lyrics
Raised to be a lady by the golden rule
Alice was the spawn of a public school
With a double-barrel name in the back of her brain
And a simple case of mummy-doesn’t-love-me blues
Reality it seems, was just a dream
She couldn’t get it on with the boys on the scene
But what do you expect from a chick who’s just sixteen?
And hey, hey, hey (hey, hey, hey) you know what I mean
All the young girls love Alice
Tender young Alice, they say
Come over and see me
Come over and please me
Alice, it’s my turn today
All the young girls love Alice
Tender young Alice, they say
If I give you my number
Will you promise to call me?
Wait till my husband’s away
Poor little darling with a chip out of her heart
It’s like acting in a movie when you got the wrong part
Getting your kicks in another girl’s bed
And it was only last Tuesday they found you in the subway dead
And who could you call your friends down in Soho?
One or two middle-aged dykes in a Go-Go
And what do you expect from a sixteen-year-old yo-yo
And hey, hey, hey (hey, hey, hey) oh don’t you know?
All the young girls love Alice
Tender young Alice, they say
Come over and see me
Come over and please me
Alice, it’s my turn today
All the young girls love Alice
Tender young Alice, they say
If I give you my number
Will you promise to call me?
Wait till my husband’s away

Tone of voice is one element used to express cultural emotions. Throughout the song the singer changes their voice to intonate different meanings and interpretations of cultural emotions. For example, deviant cultural emotions  can be expressed in low pitched tones to mean seriousness, sadness, anger, fear etc. Please use the attached file ‘Music Content Analysis’ to assist in your analysis of music.
