A child - perfect born to a king. They gave her everything.
Taught her to be clean and pure and sweet.
But they forgot to teach her how to think.... to think.

The king had reason to be proud.
He lifted her up and showed her to the crowd.
Said princess this will be your life
and one day you’ll make someone a real nice wife....nice wife.

They dressed her up and they locked her away.
took all her freedom and told her to pray.
Pray for forgiveness because she was wrong
for being a woman and for being strong.
Can’t be a woman if you are strong.

Ten thousand years under the bridge
and my sisters still trying to marry somebody rich.
Maybe we did this to ourselves.
Cuz the guy who goes from door to door knows an easy sell.

You are an angel made up so beautifully.
Please don’t leave me. You know you're just what I need.
Oh my angel you are so precious indeed.
I know what you need. Now come here so I can clip your wings
come here so I can clip your wings. Come here

They dressed her up and they locked her away.
Took all her freedom and told her to pray.
Pray for forgiveness because she was wrong
for being a woman and for being strong.
Can’t be a woman if you are strong.
(Repeat)

A child - perfect born to a king. They gave her everything.
Taught her to be clean and pure and sweet.
But they forgot to teach her how to think…
Maybe we did this to ourselves.
