"Cinderella" as written by Lindy Robbins and Kevin Stuart James Savigar....
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!

    General CommentI really like this song =)

    I love how it has a reference to the 'fairy tale life'. Many girls out there [not all, but many] usually wait for a 'fairy tale ending' waiting for their perfect 'Prince Charming'. But sad to say, sometimes Prince Charming isn't there =(

    So us girls have to stick in there and stay strong! We'll rescue ourselves!



    I also like how the singers sing about how they won't be like the rest of the world waiting for their perfect ending. Instead of waiting for dear, Prince Charming to help them, they'd rather do it themselves to prove how strong they are and how they don't need Prince Charming to save them.

    General CommentSure these bunch of girls are annoying, but you can't deny this is a good song! I think this song is about women independance and how women don't have to rely on men all the time!
