"Cinderella [From the Cheetah Girls]" 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!
