No whoa oh oh oh whoa
When I was just a little girl
My momma used to tuck me into bed and she'd read me a story (uh huh)
It was always bout a princess in distress and how the guy would save her
And end up with the glory (glory)
I'd lie in bed think about the person that I wanted to be
Then one day I realized the fairytale life
Wasn't for me

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sittin in her dark cold dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free (no whoa)
I don't wanna be like Snow White waitin
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On a horse of white unless were ridin side by side
Don't wanna depend on no one else I'd rather rescue myself

Uh no whoa oh whoa oh uh yeah check it out

Someday I'm gonna find someone
Who want's me body, soul, heart, and mind
Whos 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 tell myself it has got to be an equal thing

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sittin in her dark cold dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free (no whoa)
I don't wanna be like Snow White waitin
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On a horse of white unless were ridin side by side
Don't wanna depend on no one else I'd rather rescue myself
(rescue myself)
No whoa

I can slay my own dragons
I can dream my own dreams
My night in shining armour is me
So I'm gonna set me free

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sittin in her dark cold dusty cellar (waiting oh no)
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free (no whoa)
I don't wanna be like Snow White waitin
For a handsome prince to come and save me (save me)
On a horse of white unless were ridin side by side (side by side)

I don't wanna be like Cinderella (Cinderella)
Sittin in her dark cold dusty cellar (cold dusty cellar)
Waiting for somebody (yeah yeah)
To come and set me free (why don't you set me free)
I don't wanna be like Snow White waitin (Snow white waitin)
For a handsome prince to come and save me (to come and save me)
On a horse of white unless were ridin side by side
Don't wanna depend on no one else I'd rather rescue myself

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sittin in her dark cold dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free (oh whoa)
I don't wanna be like Snow White waitin (Snow white waitin)
For a handsome prince to come and save me (to come and save me)
On a horse of white unless were ridin side by side (oh yeah)
Don't wanna depend on no one else I'd rather rescue myself
