When I was just a little girl
My momma 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

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

[Chorus]

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sittin' in a dark cold 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 of white, unless we're riding side by side
Don't want to depend on no one else
I'd rather rescue myself

Someday I'm gonna find someone that 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 for him just as long as he, will be there for me

When I give myself then it has got to be, an equal pair

[Chorus]

I can sliegh my own dragons,
I can dream, my own dreams
My knight in shining armor, is me

So I'm gonna set me free
Yeah

[Chorus]

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sittin' in a dark cold 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 of white, unless we're riding side by side

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sittin' in a dark cold 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 of white, unless we're riding side by side
