Once upon a time there was a girl Fairy tales, huh? Always the perfect template for a beautiful cliché Once upon a time there was a girl And even though she never cared too much about being a princess Or even sometimes didn’t care too much for being a girl She still loved the idea of finding a prince So here comes Charming With battle scars and soft eyes A sweet smile and armor that was tarnished just enough to awaken The little part of her domestic enough to actually want to clean So they fixed up everything in shades of heroic silver And she smiled From a bit of a distance Thinking how neat it was to have found a prince
It never even occurred to her that Charming was looking for a princess
And bit by bit the fairy tales began to come to life He gave her apples that she didn’t really want just so he could kiss her back awake And traded her voice for legs so she could always walk with him and he could always speak for her Leading wolves into her bedroom and then putting the sheep’s clothing around his own shoulders thinking that the wool would cover her eyes the next time he held her close And when he realized that she wasn’t locked in a tower he gave her enough bricks To build her own And as she hid behind walls and water he found his shining armor And dove into the moat just to prove how ***** he was willing to get to save the damsel
But spending enough time in the tower She began to trace back fairy tales to their origins and found out Those stories are really ****** up
Because Sleeping Beauty was ***** in a forest, The Little Mermaid turned to sea foam, Red Riding Hood never escaped the wolf, and Cinderella was only victorious after her sisters were blinded and her step-mother danced herself to death in shoes of hot iron.
Once upon a time there was a girl And her prince charming, dressed in heroic shades of silver Liked to tarnish his armor just enough to have her convinced that he was doing it all for her And bit by bit He proved to her that fairy tales are real Once upon a time there was a girl And she never really liked the idea of being a princess And sometimes didn’t even like the idea of being a girl But since Charming was always so set on being a worthy hero She’ll let him be the leading role of this poem So he can have his spotlight And she’ll find a different Happily Ever After
