WINNIFRED
They all live happily, happily, happily ever after
The couple is happily leaving the chapel eternally tied
As the curtain descends, there is nothing but loving and laughter
When the fairy tale ends, the heroine's always a bride


Ella, the girl of the cinders
Did the wash and the walls and winders
But she landed a Prince who was
Brawny and blue-eyed and blond
Still I honestly doubt that
She could ever have done it without that
Crazy lady with the wand!


Cinderella had outside help!


I have no one but me...
Fairy godmother, godmother, godmother
Where can you be?


I haven'y got a Fairy Godmother.
I haven't got a godmother.
I have a mother... a plain, ordinary woman!


Snow White was so pretty they tell us
That the Queen was insulted and jealous
When the mirror declared that Snow White
Was the fairest of all
She was dumped on the border
But was saved by some men who adored her
Oh, I grant you, they were small...


But there were seven of them! Practically a regiment!


I'm alone in the night
By myself
Not a dwarf, not an elf,
Not a goblin in sight!


That girl had seven determined little men working day and night just for her! Oh sure, the Queen gave her a poison apple. Even so...


She lived happily, happily, happily ever after
A magical kiss counteracted the apple eventually
Though I know I'm not clever
I'll do what they tell me I hafta!
I want some happily ever after to happen to me!


Winnifred, Maid of the Mire
Has one simple human desire
Oh I ask for no more
Than two shoes on the floor next to mine
Someone to fly and to float with
To swim in the marsh and the moat with
As for this one... well, he'd be fine


And I'm burning to bring it about
If I don't, I'll be stuck with goodbye
And good luck and get out!


But I don't want to get out! I wanna get in!


I want to get into some happily, happily, happily ever after
I want to walk happily out of the chapel eternally tied
For I know that I'll never live happily ever after
Till after I'm a bride!
And then I'll be happily happy
Yes, happily happy!
And thoroughly satisfied!
