Fairytale
Sara Bareilles Lyrics


Cinderella's on her bedroom floor she's got a
Crush on the guy at the liquor store
'Cause Mr. Charming don't come home anymore and she forgets why she came here.

Sleeping Beauty's in a foul mood for shame she says
None for you dear prince, I'm tired today.
I'd rather sleep my whole life away than have you keep me from dreaming

I don't care for your fairytale
You're so worried 'bout the maiden,
Though you know she's only waiting on the next best thing

Snow White is doing dishes again cause what else can you do
With seven itty bitty men?
Sends them to bed and she calls up a friend, says will you meet me at midnight.

The tall blonde lets out a cry of despair says
Would have cut it myself if I knew men could climb hair
I'll have to find another tower somewhere and keep away from the windows.

I don't care for your fairytale
You're so worried 'bout the maiden,
Though you know she's only waiting on the next best thing

Once upon a time in a faraway kingdom, man made up a story
Said that I should believe him
Go and tell your white knight that he's handsome in hindsight
But I don't want the next best thing
So I sing and hold my head down and I break these walls 'round me
Can't take no more of your fairytale love

I don't care for your fairytale
You're so worried bout the maiden,
Though you know she's used to waiting spent her whole life being graded on the
Sanctity of patience and a dumb appreciation
The story needs some mending and a better happy ending
'Cause I don't want the next best thing no no I don't want the next best thing.

Aladdin’s Lamp
Aladdin’s lamp broke into pieces,
The genie ran away,
The golden fish won’t grant free wishes,
She’s begging for some pay,
The magic wand has lost all power
‘Cause the fairy got fired today.

Cinderella’s dancing with her mop again
The glass slipper fit another,
The ugly duckling did not turn into a swan
The duck’s indeed his mother,
The frog prince renounced his royal title
The Princess was a bother.

Wake up!
Reality has called
Adulthood came to play.

Cinderella's on her bedroom floor
She's got a crush on the guy at the liquor store
'Cause Mr. Charming don't come home anymore and
She forgets why she came here
Sleeping Beauty's in a foul mood for shame
She says "None for you dear prince, I'm tired today"
I'd rather sleep my whole life away
Than have you keep me from dreaming
'Cause I don't care for your fairytales
You're so worried 'bout the maiden though
You know she's only waiting on the next best thing (next best thing)
Snow White is doing dishes again 'cause
What else could you do with seven itty-bitty men?
Sends them to bed and she calls up a friend
Says "Would you meet me at midnight?"
The tall blonde lets out a cry of despair says,
"Would have cut it myself if I knew men could climb hair"
I'll have to find another tower somewhere and keep away from the windows
'Cause I don't care for your fairytales
You're so worried 'bout the maiden though
You know she's only waiting on the next best thing (next best thing)
Once upon a time in a faraway kingdom
Man made up a story said that I should believe him
Go and tell your white knight that he's handsome in hindsight
But I don't want the next best thing
So I sing, I hold my head down and I break these walls 'round me
Can't take no more of your fairytale love
I don't care for your fa-a-airytales
You're so worried 'bout the maiden though you know she's only waiting
On the next best thing
I don't care
I don't care
Worried 'bout the maiden though you know she's only waiting,
Spent her whole life being graded on the sanctity of patience
And a dumb appreciation
But the story needs some mending and a better happy ending
Cause I don't want the next best thing
No no I don't want the next best thing

This was the first video by Sara I ever saw & the first time I'd ever heard her! I've been enthralled ever since... She is an icon in my eyes!

Pam Rodriguez

this was my first video too, but actually not this one, is the first first one, the one that doesnt look fixed.

I remember hearing this song in Barnes & Noble years ago while coincidentally looking for a fairy tale book. This has stuck with me ever since.
