Music Is A Princess
by Prefab Sprout

Music is a princess
I'm just a boy, in rags
I would gladly spend my life
carrying her flags.

From the first time I heard her
the sound of her voice
and her beauty completely bewitched me,
I was lost then and there
I was given no choice
ever since, there's been no peace for me.

You see,
music is a princess
I'm just a nobody
who'd gladly give his life
for her majesty.

If in dying I'd move her or make her heart stir
if I thought for one moment I'd be missed...
but extravagant gestures are wasted on her
she's a princess, I'm Oliver Twist.

Music is a princess
I'm just a boy, in rags
I'd gladly spend my life
carrying her bags.

If their weight is much greater than I first supposed
I'd remember my oath of allegiance
true love is a monarch who won't be deposed,
treason hasn't a chance.

Music is a princess
I'm just a boy, in raaa-aags

Music is a princess
I will remain unknown,
falling asleep at night
dreaming of her throne.

But her jewels are brighter than my eyes can bear
and although she is something to die for,
I do not have the slipper she's waiting to wear
so my dreams remain dreams nothing more.

Her jewels are brighter than my eyes can bear
yes, she is something to die for,
but I don't have the slipper she's waiting to wear
I'm a boy dressed in rags at her door.

Music is a princess
I'm just a boy, in raaaaaags
In raa-aaaa-aags
In rags
