When I was just a little girl
My mama used to tuck me into bed
And she'd read me a story
It always was about a princess in distress
And how a guy would save her
And end up with the glory
*DO' RE MI*
I'd lie in bed and think about
the person that I wanted to be
Then one day I realized
the fairy-tale life wasn't for me
I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sittin' in a dark, old, dusty cellar
Waitin' for somebody
To come and set me free.
I don't wanna be like someone waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
Oh, I will survive, unless somebody's on my side
Don't wanna be no, no, no, no
I'd rather rescue myself!
*DO' RE MI*
Someday I'm gonna find someone that wants my body,
soul, heart, and mind.
Who's not afraid to show that he loves me.
Somebody who will understand I'm happy just the way
I am(way I am) Don't need nobody takin care of me.
(I will be there)
I will be there for him just as
Strong as he, will be there for me.
When I give myself then it has got to be,
an equal thing!
I can slay (i can slay) my own dragons(my own dragons)
I can dream (I can dream) my own dreams
(my own dreams)My knight in shining armor(shining armor)
is me(is me)
So I'm gonna set me free!
