The Cheetah Girls — Cinderella lyrics

[Galleria:]
When I was just a little girl,
My mama used to tuck me into bed,
And she'd read me a story.

[Chanel:]
It always was about a princess in distress
And how a guy would save her
And end up with the glory.

[Dorinda:]
I'd lie in bed
And think about
The person that I wanted to be,

[Aqua:]
Then one day I realized
The fairy tale life wasn't for me.

[Chorus - all:]
I don't wanna be like Cinderella,
Sitting in a dark, cold, dusty cellar,
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free
I don't wanna be like someone waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On my own I will survive
Unless somebody's on my side
Don't wanna be
No, no, no one else.
I'd rather rescue myself.

[Chanel:]
Someday I'm gonna find someone
Who wants somebody's soul heart and mind
Whos not afraid to show that he loves me

[Gallaria:]
Somebody who will understand I'm happy just the way I am
Don't need nobody taking care of me

[Dorinda:]
(I will be there) I will be there for him just as strong as he will be there for me

[Aqua:]
When I give myself then it has got to be an equal thing

I don't wanna be like Cinderella,
Sitting in a dark, cold, dusty cellar,
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free (Come and set me free)
I don't wanna be like Snow white waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On my own I will survive
Unless somebody's on my side
Don't wanna be
No, no, no one else.
I'd rather rescue myself.

[All:]
I can slay my own dragons. (my own dragons)
I can dream my own dreams (my own dreams)
My knight in shining armor (shining armor) is me
So I'm gonna set me free

[Chorus - all:]
I don't wanna be like Cinderella,
Sitting in a dark, cold, dusty cellar,
Waiting for somebody to come and set me free.
I don't wanna be like someone waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On my own I will survive
Unless somebody's on my side

I don't wanna be like Cinderella,
Sitting in a dark, cold, dusty cellar,
Waiting for somebody (oh -Oh) to come and set me free.
I don't wanna be like someone waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On my own I will survive
Unless somebody's on my side
Don't wanna depend
On, no one else.
I'd rather rescue myself.

I don't wanna be like Cinderella,
Sitting in a dark, cold, dusty cellar,
Waiting for somebody (oh -Oh)to come and set me free.
I don't wanna be like someone waiting
For a handsome prince to come and save me
On my own I will survive
Unless somebody's on my side
Don't wanna depend
On, no one else.
I'd rather rescue myself.
