I’ve just finished reading our love story,
And I’ll tell you what I think, now that I’m done
It was never ever dull, and far from ever being boring,
But the ending should have definitely followed Chapter One.
This will never be a million seller,
There are many many others just like it on the shelf
And our friends tried to tell me all about the ending,
But I had to turn the pages all by myself.
Chapter one, I meet this beautiful princess,
As I ride up on my old, but proud, white horse.
I put down my shield and climb to her tower,
And there she said she loved me too, of course.
We rode off on the back of my noble steed
And together we set up castle in the East
My fellow knights kept warning me to pay a little heed
She may be the Beauty, but she may be the Beast.
(Repeat Chorus #2)
There ain’t gonna be no “happy ever after”
In any other story that would surely be a bore
But she went off with the dragon, with lots of laughter,
And I guess I got the poison apple, or maybe the core.
(Repeat Chorus #1)
