Cinderella - Play

When I was just a little girl
My mama used to tuck me into bed
And she read me a story
It always was about a princess in distress
And how a guy would save her
And end up with a glory

I lie in bed and think about
The person that I want to be
Then one day I realized
The fairy tale life wasn't for me

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sitting in a dark old dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free
I don't wanna be like Snow White waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On a horse in white unless we're riding side by side
Don't wanna depend on no one else
I'd rather rescue myself

Someday I'm gonna find someone
Who wants my 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
Don't need nobody taking 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 get myself started
It had got to be an equal thing

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sitting in a dark old dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free (Oh oh)
I don't wanna be like Snow White waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On a horse in white unless we're riding side by side
Don't wanna depend on no one else
I'd rather rescue myself
(Rescue myself, no ohhh)

I can slay my own dragons
I can dream my own dream
My knight in shining armor is me
So I'm gonna set me free

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sitting in a dark old dusty cellar (Ohh)
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free
I don't wanna be like Snow White waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On a horse in white unless we're riding side by side

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sitting in a dark old dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free
I don't wanna be like Snow White waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On a horse in white unless we're riding side by side
Don't wanna depend on no one else
I'd rather rescue myself

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sitting in a dark old dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free (Ohhh)
I don't wanna be like Snow White waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On a horse in white unless we're riding side by side
Don't wanna depend on no one else
I'd rather rescue myself
