                        A chord diagramC majorC   A chord diagramD MajorD
There was a castle by a waterfall,
       A chord diagramC majorC              A chord diagramD MajorD
With a pink and purple wall,
      A chord diagramC majorC               G

And a princess living there.

                           A chord diagramC majorC   D

She had no parents and was all alone,

    A chord diagramC majorC             A chord diagramD MajorD
She got by on her own,

        A chord diagramG+G        A chord diagramC majorC      A chord diagramG+G
And she liked it pretty well.


                          A chord diagramD MajorD

'Cause she never wore her socks,

              A chord diagramG+G
She had a pet snake,

                 A chord diagramD MajorD
She bought a red guitar,

                    A chord diagramE minorEm
And she ate a whole cake.


                    A chord diagramC majorC                              D

And there wasn't anybody there to tell her what to do,
       A chord diagramD7D7           A chord diagramC majorC      A

So she did what she wanted to.

     A chord diagramC majorC                          A chord diagramD7D7            A chord diagramC majorC      A chord diagramD MajorD
Everybody knew the story of the princess who saved herself.

 A chord diagramC majorC           A chord diagramD MajorD
(Princess who saved herself)

 A chord diagramC majorC           A chord diagramD MajorD          A chord diagramG+G
(Princess who saved herself)


                          A chord diagramC majorC      D

There was a dragon with a pointy tail,

       A chord diagramC majorC             A chord diagramD MajorD
He was bigger than a whale,
        A chord diagramC majorC                 A chord diagramG+G

And his breath was terrible.

                              *C     D

He scared the princess when he came around,

         A chord diagramC majorC               A chord diagramD MajorD
Tried to burn the castle down,

        A chord diagramG+G             A chord diagramC majorC   A chord diagramG+G
But she caught him by his tail.


                       D

Then she tied him to a tree,

                       A chord diagramG+G
So the dragon couldn't fly,
                    D

She told him he was mean,

                       A chord diagramE minorEm
And it made the dragon cry.


                  A chord diagramC majorC                             D

When he finally apologized she offered him some tea,

   A chord diagramD7D7              A chord diagramA augmentedA
He accepted it graciously.
       A chord diagramC majorC                             A chord diagramD7D7                  A chord diagramC majorC A chord diagramD MajorD

Now he visits every weekend with the princess who saved herself.
 A chord diagramC majorC           D

(Princess who saved herself)
 A chord diagramC majorC           A chord diagramD MajorD        Eb

(Princess who saved herself)



(Bridge phone conversation...)



A chord diagramG+G                            A chord diagramC majorC    D

There was a witch who was an evil queen,

        A chord diagramC majorC                A chord diagramD MajorD
She was wrinkled old and green,

        A chord diagramC majorC              A chord diagramG+G
And she hated everyone.

                            A chord diagramC majorC       A chord diagramD MajorD

She saw the princess in her silver gown,

        A chord diagramC majorC           A chord diagramD MajorD
Put the poison apple down,

          A chord diagramG+G                    A chord diagramC majorC      A chord diagramD MajorD A chord diagramG+G
Asked her where she bought her clothes.


                        A chord diagramD MajorD

So they got the witch a dress,

                        A chord diagramG+G
Put some make-up on her face,

                  A chord diagramD MajorD
They started up a band,

                          A chord diagramE minorEm
And the dragon played the bass.


                    A chord diagramC majorC                               A chord diagramD MajorD

Every Saturday they play until their fingertips are sore,
       A chord diagramD7D7          A chord diagramC majorC        A

Mostly Math Rock and Cuddle Core.
         A chord diagramC majorC                                  A chord diagramD7D7                    A chord diagramC majorC D

And they call themselves The Kingdom Of The Princess Who Saved Herself.

 A chord diagramC majorC            A chord diagramD MajorD
(Princess who saved herself)
 A chord diagramC majorC            D

(Princess who saved herself)

 A chord diagramC majorC               D

The princess who saved herself.
