Once upon a time in a land far, far away
I tried to play but my heart in the way
This part a little harder to say
It's like the white girl trapped in a well
Help is coming but it's scary as hell
But very well, here go the fairy tale
Now Cinderella want a fella who is not so ghetto
So she follow bread crumbs like Hansel and Gretel
Hello, that'll make her drop her underwear
Dough longer than Rapunzel hair
Everyone starin' when she walk in, she like
(What you want?)
Yo, I'm not gonna front, I be blunt, I'll my make that ass bump, I know that's
(What they want)
Me too with my hands up, she turn around like man up
(Yeah, I am)
But I know her from work, she pass by like he ain't that fly, you got
(One more chance)
To fall down the rabbit hole, let me take you to Wonderland
Or I'll make us some other plans
I don't wanna spend the night
Trying to figure out how to spend my life
I don't wanna spend my time
Waiting for you, waiting for you
Yeah, I don't wanna spend the night
Trying to figure out how to spend my life
I don't wanna spend my time
Waiting for you, waiting for you
Everybody say
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Waiting for you, waiting for you
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Waiting for you, waiting for you
I made you a star, your light was shining, it's so right
So bright that it dwarfed the chicks in Snow White
So nice, got down with the team and now you one of us
Got me singing like Prince, you sexy motherfucker
You could be my princess bride, call you my buttercup
I love when you letting me be the man
Let me take you by the hand like Wendy in Peter Pan
If you fly by night, that's right, I'll let you make a wish
Eat you up like a favorite dish
Man, I pray you not the wicked witch
(Made it through)
Situations where I broke my promise, but now I'm tryin' to be honest, love
(So can you)
Sometimes people evolve, but that involve knowing exactly
(What you want)
You might now wanna come and high five, givin' your partner
(What they want)
My life is an open book, you had a chapter, but will it end happily ever after?
I don't wanna spend the night
Trying to figure out how to spend my life
I don't wanna spend my time
Waiting for you, waiting for you
I don't wanna spend the night
Trying to figure out how to spend my life
I don't wanna spend my time
Waiting for you, waiting for you
Everybody in the house say, say
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Waiting for you, waiting for you
Come on, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Say it with me, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Say it with me, oh, oh, oh, oh
Waiting for you, waiting for you
Life ain't a fairy tale
Now they say sisters bitter and the brothers is grim
Time to let the story end and let another begin
I spun straw into gold like Rumpelstiltskin
Still a hole in my soul that love won't fill in
She Sleeping Beauty 'cause her eyes is closed
Tried to sleep on your boy like Brian Rose
Now she wild like the coconut know it
And I'm lying like Pinocchio
Gotta know when it's time to go, gotta know when it's
(Here we are)
We had some good times, had some Little Red Riding Hood times but
(Once again)
I'm the big bad wolf, don't hit me with the sad look, love
(Here I am)
I'm still the same old me but I don't know if we should give it
(One more chance)
To add another chapter, life ain't always happily ever
I don't wanna spend the night
Trying to figure out how to spend my life
I don't wanna spend my time
Waiting for you, waiting for you
I don't wanna spend the night
Trying to figure out how to spend my life
I don't wanna spend my time
Waiting for you, waiting for you
