Fairy Tale Love

Come play along

how can it be wrong

to believe in ever after

what if the prince
never kissed Beauty's lips

she might still be sleeping all alone

oh woh oh oh woh oh

give me fairy tale love

oh woh oh oh woh oh

cuz it's what I'm dreaming of

oh woh oh
and a prince to call my own
(oh woh oh)

I would sure throw

a frog at the wall

to turn him into tall and handsome

When will the guy
who leads a charmed life

cruise my kingdom for his perfect bride

oh woh oh oh woh oh

give me fairy tale love

oh woh oh oh woh oh

it's the stuff dreams are made of

oh woh oh
and a prince who dreams of

I've been told to stop believing
stop deceiving

why be full of foolishness and wishful dreaming

they would have me buying love comes so easy

but I will never stop believing

Life is ours to dream

oh woh oh oh woh oh

give me fairy tale love

oh woh oh oh woh oh

I've been dreaming long enough

oh woh oh oh woh oh

a cinder maid can find l'amour

oh woh oh oh woh oh

could dress in rags and scrub mom's floor

oh woh oh oh woh oh

locked in some high tower, I'd die

oh woh oh oh woh oh

I'd let my hair down for any guy

oh woh oh oh woh oh

feed me fairy tale love

I'd even eat that poisoned apple bite
