When I was just a little girl
My mama used to tuck me into bed
And she read me a story

It always was about a princess in distress
And how a guy would save her
And end up with a glory

I'd lie in bed and think about
The person that I wanted to be

Then one day I realized
The fairy tale life wasn't for me

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sitting in a dark old dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free
I don't wanna be like someone waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On I will survive unless somebody's on my side
Don't wanna be no no no one else
I'd rather rescue myself

Someday I'm gonna find someone
Who wants somebody's soul, heart, and mind
Who's 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)
I will be there for him
Just as strong as he will be there for me

When I get myself
It had got to be an equal thing

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sitting in a dark old dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free
I don't wanna be like someone waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On I will survive unless somebody's on my side
Don't wanna be no no no one else
I'd rather rescue myself

I can slay my own dragons
I can dream my own dream
My knight in shining armor is me
So I'm gonna set me free

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sitting in a dark old dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free
I don't wanna be like someone waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On I will survive unless somebody's on my side

I don't wanna be like Cinderella
Sitting in a dark old dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free
I don't wanna be like someone waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On I will survive unless somebody's on my side
Don't wanna be no no no one else
I'd rather rescue myself
