lyrics

It was long ago in a far away land
A teenaged girl was feeling oh so sad
Her two stepsisters were not any fun
They were mean and lazy – all the chores were done by
Cinderella – Ahhhhhhhh
Cinderella – Ahhhhhhhh

She washed the dishes and mopped the floors
Scrubbed out the toilet and so much more
She shoveled the driveway and mowed the lawn
Her chores began at the break of dawn for Cinderella . . .

The olde towne crier came a-ringing a bell
He had an announcement and he had to yell,
“The Prince will be throwing a fancy ball!”
The invitation went out to all but Cinderella . . .

Her stepsister said, “But you can’t go!
You’re covered in soot from head to toe
You don’t have a dress or dancing shoes
So you’ll have to stay home. Oh boo hoo hoo Cinderella.” . . .

She sat alone in a corner and cried
When a tiny sparkle came flying inside
It flew and flickered and glittered and grew
Into a tiny godmother saying, “How do you do!” to Cinderella . . .

With a few magic words and a wave of her wand
Cinderella’s dirty torn rags were gone
She had tiny glass slippers and a fancy gown
And a horse and carriage to take her downtown - Cinderella . . .

Cinderella was ready and raring to go
But there was one last thing she needed to know
At the stroke of midnight the spell is done
There’ll be no more magic and no more fun for Cinderella . . .

She made a big entrance at the palace door
The Prince was standing on the ballroom floor
He walked towards her with a steady gaze
He took her hand and danced the night away with Cinderella . . .
