                        *C   D
There was a castle by a waterfall,
       *C              D
With a pink and purple wall,
      C                      G

And a princess living there.

                           *C   D

She had no parents and was all alone,

    *C            D
She got by on her own,

        G               C  D G
And she liked it pretty well.


                          D

'Cause she never wore her socks,

              G
She had a pet snake,

                 D       
She bought a red guitar,

                    Em
And she ate a whole cake.


                    C                              D

And there wasn't anybody there to tell her what to do,
       D7b9         C      A

So she did what she wanted to.

     C                          D7                         *C D
Everybody knew the story of the princess who saved herself.

 *C           D
(Princess who saved herself)

 *C           D             G
(Princess who saved herself)


                          *C     D

There was a dragon with a pointy tail,

       *C            D
He was bigger than a whale,
        C                 G

And his breath was terrible.
                               
                               *C     D

He scared the princess when he came around,

         *C              D
Tried to burn the castle down,

        G                 C   D G
But she caught him by his tail.


                       D

Then she tied him to a tree,

                       G
So the dragon couldn't fly,
                    D

She told him he was mean,

                       Em
And it made the dragon cry.


                  C                             D

When he finally apologized she offered him some tea,

   D7b9        C          A
He accepted it graciously.
       C                             D7                        *C D

Now he visits every weekend with the princess who saved herself.
 *C           D

(Princess who saved herself)
 *C           D        Eb

(Princess who saved herself)




(Bridge phone conversation...)



G                            *C   D

There was a witch who was an evil queen,

        *C               D
She was wrinkled old and green,

        C              G
And she hated everyone.

                            *C     D

She saw the princess in her silver gown,

        *C           D
Put the poison apple down,

          G                    C      D G
Asked her where she bought her clothes.


                        D

So they got the witch a dress,

                        G
Put some make-up on her face,

                  D
They started up a band,

                          Em
And the dragon played the bass.


                    C                               D

Every Saturday they play until their fingertips are sore,
       D7b9          C           A

Mostly Math Rock and Cuddle Core.
         C                                  D7                       *C D

And they call themselves The Kingdom Of The Princess Who Saved Herself.

 *C           D
(Princess who saved herself)
 *C           D

(Princess who saved herself)

 *C           D

The princess who saved herself.

 *C           D
(Princess who saved herself)

 *C           D             G
(Princess who saved herself)
