Tuning: Standard (E A D G B E) Difficulty: Intermediate RITA: C/GC/G I was brought up in tafetta dresses G7sus4G7sus4 And taught to be pretty and precious G5G5 Spending my playtimes with plastic princesses E7/G# Who all had bodies just utterly ludicrous A minorAm G#G# Miniscual waists and huge boobs Am/GAm/G Am/F# FF Dm9Dm9 And it's all nippless and no pubes and no creases D#D# C/EC/E I mean Jesus it's pretty confusing G+G FF Especially at 6.

Dm7Dm7 F/GF/G C majorC As I say - it's a little complex. C majorC E7E7 One day, some day A minorAm my prince may come D7D7 But it doesn't seem likely Dm7Dm7 C majorC But even if he came and he liked me D7D7 G#5G#5 It's likely he'd be not quite my type.
