Where's my white knight, my prince to save the day?
I've always paved my own way
I'm all alone bringin' home the bread
Raisin' the kid, fixin' the bed

I wanna be a star like Marilyn Monroe
A Cinderella fantasy, a naive Clara Bow
'A Princess and the Pea', I try to play the part
Surrounded by society, hypnotizin' me
It's hard to be soft

I'm all alone, keepin' the home alive
Makin' the meals, she's 9 to 5
I'm the only one at the mommy and me
Lookin' for some company

I wanna have a star like Marilyn Monroe
A Cinderella fantasy, a naive Clara Bow
'A Princess and the Pea', we try to play the part
Surrounded by society, hypnotizin' me
It's hard to be soft

Out there on my own, successful in the world
It works to be so strong
But when I come home, my pendulum's out of control
I'm passive or I let my fire glow
In a man's world, it's hard to be soft

I don't wanna be a star like Marilyn Monroe
A Cinderella fantasy, a naive Clara Bow
'A Princess and The Pea', we try to play the part
Surrounded by society, hypnotizin' me to be

Home-baked apple pie, a centerfold in heels
A Betty Crocker Pamela complacent to believe
Ain't my Mr. Right a pipe and slippers guy?
A ready, steady, rock hard Eddy, oops, not always
Guess, it's only hard to be soft
