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 wanna be like cinderella
sittin' in a dark cold dusty cellar
waitin' for somebody to come and set me free
i dont wanna be like someone
waiting for a handsome prince to come
and save me oh i will survive unless somebodys on my side
Don't wanna be no no no one else i'd rather rescue myself
someday i'm gunna find someone
that wants somebody heart soul and mind
whose not afraid to show that he loves me
somebody who will understand i'm happy just
the way i am dont 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 will have to be an equal pay
