"Prince Charming" as written by Marco Pirroni, Stuart Goddard, Timothy Mckenzie and Theo Kerlin....
Don't you ever, don't you ever
Stop being dandy, showing me you're handsome
Don't you ever, don't you ever
Stop being dandy, showing me you're handsome

Prince Charming
Prince Charming
Ridicule is nothing to be scared of
Don't you ever, don't you ever
Stop being dandy, showing me you're handsome

Don't you ever, don't you ever
Lower yourself, forgetting all your standards
Don't you ever, don't you ever
Lower yourself, forgetting all your standards

Prince Charming
Prince Charming
Ridicule is nothing to be scared of
Don't you ever, don't you ever
Stop being dandy, showing me you're handsome

Silk or leather or a feather
Respect yourself and all of those around you
Silk or leather or a feather
Respect yourself and all of those around you

Prince Charming
Prince Charming
Ridicule is nothing to be scared of
Don't you ever, don't you ever
Stop being dandy, showing me you're handsome

Don't you ever, don't you ever
Lower yourself, forgetting all your standards
Don't you ever, don't you ever
Lower yourself, forgetting all your standards

Prince Charming
Prince Charming
Ridicule is nothing to be scared of
Prince Charming
Prince Charming
Ridicule is nothing to be scared of

    General CommentI think the song is telling men don't be afraid to be fashionable and handsome. Especially since this was in the 80s where fashion was highly androgynous, especially on the music scene following both the punk and funk scenes (Siouxsie, Prince, Madonna, etc.). I think the song is saying don't be afraid to present yourself as the 'freak' that you are, don't be afraid to wear what you want when you want, and people will say this and that but show off, don't lower your standards, be beautiful.

    General CommentSince no-one's really said anything bout meaning, I might as well give it a go.

    Reckon the singer is just trying to say to his "prince charming" that he doesn't have to try so hard, he should loosen up a little... maybe even try something new, I dunno.

    Video is insanely good tho... was in the top 100 on a show a little while ago... :D

    General CommentI agree with Kwizzy02 but its also known that Adam Ant had depression and he has Bipolar diorder and alot of his songs you can kinda see him expressing that and this song might have alittle bit of like him talking to himself telling himself to just be himself like he wrote it more for himself then to encourage others. it just does that by itself

    General Commenti totally agree with KWizzy02, that's what i thought it meant. just be yourself, be outrageous, don't ever change or lower yourself because of what other people say.

    General CommentFantastic video, but I think he damaged his back doing the stunt where he crashes through the window swinging on the chandelier and suffered pain in later life.
