The Princess and the Pea
The strangest oddity
The driving force’s the diving board
March on ‘head but what you dying for?
The hired core,
Buy a girl with diamonds and then call her whore
She says no more
She’s on her knees to please but now the shame’s hardcore
She’s off that floor
Gotta get out that door
Bye-bye to the haters showed her pimp the score
She ain’t no whore
At least no more.
She heard that change is come and flipped the script real quick,
Didn’t know what she was worth but felt the whip just wasn’t it
Nor is dick.
Was walking to the ticking of the people’s pick
It told her she was nothing and she thought she could believe it
Sobbing on the floor but then she thought that she should sweep it
Swallowed all the shit until she wondered where the weep went
Didn’t know that she could BE Strength
Started on the low but at the mo’ she’s on the deep end
Flying high and keefin’
Swimming with the birds and
Peering over world’s end.
Look and see a woman;
Can’t remember where the girl went
And you let her go, when?
Walked away from man saying
Sorry I’ll hold my own hand
Yeah, I’ll be my whole band
