 It's hard to see the pain behind the mask

Fairy Tales


And she meets prince charming
And they live happily ever after. . .



I think we should ban the writers of these fairy tale books

Because everything you read is never quite as it looks

Where's the bit about prince charming breaking her heart

When he cheated on her, they must have forgot that part

And what about the real Cinderella that never got to the ball

She's still at home lonely; her fairy godmother never did call

And what about the ugly duckling that never turned into a swan

All that false hope given, do you not think that, that is wrong?

And the Beast never found his Beauty, Pinocchio is nothing but a toy

Snow white is still stuck with the 7 dwarfs, she never found her dream boy

The Princess is still stuck in the tower waiting for Mr Right to come along

So far there have been, Mr Arrogant, Mr Player, Mr A*hole and Mr Wrong

So why fill the kids with fake illusions, that the world is rosy and bright

It's not fair to get there hopes up, to knock them down, it just isn't right

Don't tell them exactly how it is, but don't lie and say how it's not

Because why tell them all these fairy tales, they will soon see what is what
