“Don’t Come Around Here No More” is a song written by Tom Petty and Eurythmics’ David Stewart for the Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ album, Southern Accents.

The music video is themed around Alice in Wonderland and was directed by Jeff Stein. Stewart appears as the caterpillar at the beginning, sitting on a mushroom with a hookah water pipe while playing a sitar. Petty appears in the video dressed as The Mad Hatter, and actress Wish Foley played Alice. At the end of the video, Alice, who has been turned into a cake, is eaten by Petty and even friends of her own, and then a final shot of her being swallowed whole by Petty, after which he gives a small burp and pats his mouth dry.
