Dauntless:
Oh I liked her

Larken:
So did I!

Dauntless:
Why must every princess get the bird?

Lady:
(spoken)It's just absurd!

Lady:
(spoken)I've never heard a test so difficult to pass!

Dauntless:
Alas a lass is what I lack
I lack a lass, alas alack

Knights: Ladies:
throuought the land
no one may wed till
dauntless shares his Oh-------
marriage bed!
The lonely spinster's life!
Go and get the prince a royal wife!

All:
We have an opening for a princess
for a genuine certified princess

Ladies:
tell us when you intend
to end this dillemma we're in

Knights:
None of the ladies give
a fig for livin' in sin

All:
We have an opening for a princess
For a beautiful, bonafide princess

Ladies:
Where's the dutiful Knight
who'll right all the wrongs we've been done?

Knights:
None of the ladies are havin' any fun!

Ladies: Knights:
What to do
What to do
what to do
What to do
pity the ladies in waiting
Pity the gentlemen too (or two)
four
six
eight

All:
Ten eleven twelve contenders in a row
they came, they were tested
then swiftly requested to go
for a pricess
for a genuine certified princess

Ladies: Knights:
tell us when you intend Ohh-----------
to send us a girl who can pass something...
Go and get the price a royal wife

Knights:
None of the ladies are havin' any

All:
no one is havin' any
No one is gettin' any younger
and it's been god-knows-how-long since
we've had an opening for a princess
who's good enough,
nice enough,
sweet enough,
smart enough,
rich enough for our poor prince.
