When I was just a little girlMy momma used to tuck me into bed and she read me a storyIt always was about a Princess in distressAnd 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 beThen one day I realized the fairy tale life wasn't for me
[Chorus]I don't wanna be like CinderellaSittin' in a dark old dusty cellarWaiting for somebody, to come and set me freeI don't wanna be like Snow White waitingFor a handsome prince to come and save meOn a horse of white, unless we're riding side by sideDon't want to depend on no-one elseI'd rather rescue myself
Someday I'm gonna find someone who wants my soul, heart and mindWho's not afraid to show that he loves meSomebody 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 strong as he, will be there for meWhen I give myself then it has got to be, an equal thing
I can slay, my own dragonI can dream, my own dreamsMy knight in shining armour is meSo I'm gonna set me free
