Lyrics Edit

When I was just a little girl my mama 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 her glory
I'd lie in bed and think about the person that I wanted to be
Then one day I realized that fairy tale life wasn't for me
I don't want to be like Cinderella
Sittin' in a dark cold dusty cellar
Waitin' for somebody to come and set me free
I don't want to be like someone waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
Oh I will survive
Unless somebody's on my side
Don't want to be no no no one else
I'd rather rescue myself
Someday I'm gonna find someone that wants me for my soul heart and mind
Whose 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 strong as he will be there for me
When I get myself ready it has got to be an equally
I don't want to be like Cinderella
Sittin' in a dark cold dusty cellar
Waitin' for somebody to come and set me free
I don't want to be like someone waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
Oh I will survive
Unless somebody's on my side
Don't want to be no no no one else
I'd rather rescue myself
I can slay my own dragon
I can dream my own dreams
My knight in shining armor is me
So I'm gonna set me free, yeah
I don't want to be like Cinderella
Sittin' in a dark cold dusty cellar
Waitin' for somebody to come and set me free
I don't want to be like someone waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
Oh I will survive
Unless somebody's on my side
I don't want to be like Cinderella
Sittin' in a dark cold dusty cellar
Waitin' for somebody to come and set me free, no
I don't want to be like someone waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
Oh I will survive
Unless somebody's on my side
Don't want to be no no no one else
I'd rather rescue myself
Don't want to be no no no one else I'd rather rescue myself!

When I was just a little girl
My mama used to tuck me into bed
She 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 want to be

Then one day I realized
Fairy tale life wasn't for me

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sitting 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 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 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)
I will be there for him
Just as strong as he
Will be there for me
When I give myself then it has got to be
An equal thing

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sitting 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 wanna depend on no one else
I'd rather rescue myself
(Rescue myself, rescue myself)

I can slay my own dragons
I can dream my own dreams (my own dreams)
My knight in shining armor
Is me
So I'm gonna set me free

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sitting 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

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sitting 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 wanna depend on no one else
I'd rather rescue myself

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sitting 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 wanna depend on no one else
I'd rather rescue myself

When I was just a little girl
My momma used to tuck me into bed and she 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

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sittin' in a dark old 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 who 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 strong as he, will be there for me
When I give myself then it has got to be, an equal thing

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sittin' in a dark old 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

I can slay, my own dragon
I can dream, my own dreams
My knight in shining armour is me
So I'm gonna set me free

(Like Cinderella, old 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
(Save me x7)

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sittin' in a dark old 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

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sittin' in a dark old 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
