Play – Cinderella lyrics

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 prince, a cinder's dress
And how a guy would save her
And end up with the glory

I'd lie and I'd think about the person that
I want to be
Though 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 Snow White waitin'
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On a horse of white
Unless we're ridin' 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 he loves me
Somebody who will understand
I'm happy just the way I am
Don't need nobody takin' care of me

I will be there for him
Just as long as he
Will be there for me
When I get myself steady
It's got to be
An equal thing

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 Snow White waitin'
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On a horse of white
Unless we're ridin' side by side
Don't wanna depend on no one else
I'd rather rescue myself

(Rescue myself)
Oh, oh

I can slay my own dragons
I can dream my own dreams
My knight in shining armor
Is me

So I'm gonna set me free

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 Snow White waitin'
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On a horse of white
Unless we're 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 a dark, old, dusty cellar
Waitin' for somebody
To come and set me free
I don't wanna be like Snow White waitin'
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On a horse of white
Unless we're 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 a dark, old, dusty cellar
Waitin' for somebody
To come and set me free
I don't wanna be like Snow White waitin'
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On a horse of white
Unless we're ridin' side by side
Don't wanna depend on no one else
I'd rather rescue myself
