"No Thank You, Prince Charming" Song Lyrics

March 4, 2021

FREE WRITING

[Verse 1]
A lot of girls want to be swept off their feet
By a fairy-tale prince at the second they meet.
Those girls want a romance straight out of a book,
Rose-colored pictures from stories they took.

But I'll trade my glass slippers for bare feet in the grass.
At the last stroke of midnight, I'll let the time pass.
I don't want a fake fairy godmother's spell,
I can get along by being me just as well.

[Chorus]
No thank you, Prince Charming, I'll do this myself
I'll climb from this tower, but without your help.
I can fight off that dragon or beast on my own.
Thanks but no thanks, you can head home.

[Verse 2]
I'm not your average damsel in distress
I'm good with my jeans, don't need a dress.
Don't put a jeweled crown on top of my head.
I'll take my cool black fedora instead.

Prince Charming, honestly, here's where I'm at.
You're a great person, but you should know that
You don't complete me, that seat has been filled.
By the one, who for us, let His own blood be spilled.

[Chorus 2]
So no thank you, Prince Charming, I'll do this myself.
I'll climb from this tower, but without your help.
I can fight off that dragon or beast on my own.
Thanks but no thanks, you can head home.

[Verse 3]
And a princess is not always dainty and weak.
We have thoughts that we think and words we should speak.
And if you see me as capable, strong, or brave,
You'll come to find that I'm already saved.

So if you don't try to just "rescue" me,
We could fall into step, start to talk, and maybe,
Find a few things that make us both laugh,
And see we're alike as we walk down the path.

[Outro]
Don't want a fantasy romance.
Don't want the last midnight dance.
Just give this way a chance,
'Cause I don't want Prince Charming.
This is now my favorite song I've written. It sums up my feelings really well and was partially inspired by the book, "The Golden Braid" by Melanie Dickerson. Christian ladies, this is a must-read! Have a great night!

    Oh wow this is beautiful and so timely! The rhymes are so clever and a bit sassy haha! I love the lines in the chorus, "So no thank you Prince Charming I'll do this myself/I'll climb from this tower, but without your help"
