To Be a Princess
It's all here in the Princess Book of Etiquette
No nagging, bragging,
twittering or frittering allowed.
Stay present, stay pleasant, stay proud.
To be a princess is to know which spoon to use,
To be a princess is a thousand pair of shoes.
To maintain a regal gait,
leave the parsley on your plate,
and be charming,
but detached and yet amused.
To be a princess is to never be confused.
Do a plie and never fall,
Dont ever stray from protocol,
All through the day there's just one way you must behave.
Do keep a grip and never crack,
Stiff upper lip and arch the back,
Bend from above,
and always wear your gloves, and wave.
Shoulders back and tummy in,
And pinky out and lift the chin
And slowly turn the head from side to side
I see now
Breathing gently, stepping lightly,
Smile brightly, nod politely
Never show a thing you feel inside.
To be a Princess is to always look your best,
To be a princess is to never get to rest,
Sit for a portrait, never squirm,
Sleep on a matteress extra firm,
Speak and be clever,
Never at a loss for words.
Curtsy to every count and lord,
Learn how to play the harpsichord,
and always harmonise in thirds.
And she has beautiful eyes,
Your spirits rise,
when she walks in the room,
Doors close and the chemistry grows
She's like a rose thats forever in bloom.
do a plie and dont
Erica: Ever, ever, ever fall
Julien: Never show dismay
Erica: And be there when people call
Julien: Be prepared, whatever royal life will bring.
Do keep a grip and don't
Erica: Ever, ever, ever crack
Julien: Take a dainty sip
Erica: Never, ever turn your back
Julien: There's a time and place and way for everything.
To be a princess is to never make your bed
To be a princess is to always use your head!
