When I was just a little girl
My momma used to tuck me into bed
and she'd read me a story
It always was about a Princess in distress
And how a guy would save her and end up with the glory

I'd lie in bed and think about the person that I want to be
Then one day I realized the fairy tale life wasn't for me

[Chorus]
I don't want to be like Cinderella
Sittin' in a dark old dusty cellar
Waiting for somebody, to come and set me free
I don't want to be like Snow White waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On a horse of white, unless we're riding side by side
Don't want to depend on no one else
I'd rather rescue myself

Someday I'm gonna find someone who wants my 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 for him just as strong as he will be there for me
When I give myself then it has to 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 snow white waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me

Oh I will survive until somebody's on my side
Don't wanna be no no no no one else I'd rather rescue myself

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus: x3]
