(SPOKEN Anneliese)
I'm savoring my first and last taste
of freedom
Befor gettign married next week
to a total stranger...

(SPOKEN Erica)
At least you're not an indentured
Servant

(SPOKEN Anneliese)
Indentured servant?


Erica
If I'd like to have my breakfast hot
Madame Carpe will make me pay,
And I have to fetch the eggs myself
And the barn's a mile away.
It's cold and wet
But still I get an omelet on my plate,
But in my head I'm back in bed
Snuggled up and sleeping late.
(SPOKEN Anneliese)
Really?
(SPOKEN Erica)
Really, but it's alright I mean I'm
Used to it
And you?
(SPOKEN Anneliese)
Well...
(SPOKEN Erica)
Well?

Anneliese
If I want some eggs I ring the bell
And the maid comes running in,
And she serves them on a silver tray
And she brings the cookie tin.
And while I eat she rubs my feet
And strolling minstrels play,
But I'd rather be in my library
Reading science books all day.

Erica
I'm just like you
You are?
You're just like me
There's somewhere else we'd rather
be
Somewhere that's ours
Somewhere that dreams come true
Yes I am a girl like you.
You'd never think that it was so
But now I've met you and I know,
It's plain as day
Sure as the sky is blue
I am a girl like you.

First I choose a fabric from the rack And I pin the pattern down,
And I stitch it in the front and back
And it turns into a gown!
Anneliese
I wear my gown
Without my crown
And dance around my room
And imagine life without the strife
Of an unfamiliar groom.

I'm just like you (I think that's true)
You're just like me (Yes I can see)
Both
We take responsibility
We carry through (We carry through)
Do what we need to go.
Yes I am a girl like you.
I'm just like you (I'm just like you)
You're just like me (You're just like me)
It's something anyone can see
A heart that beats
A voice that speaks the truth
Yes I am a girl like you.
