An Opening for a Princess lyrics

An Opening for a Princess

Dauntless: Ohhhhh? I liked her!
Larken: So did I.
Dauntless: Why?
Knights: Why?
All: Why?
Dauntless: Must every princess get the bird?
Lady Rowena: It's just absurd!
Lady Agatha: I never heard a test so difficult to pass!
Dauntless: Alas, a lass is what I lack, I lack a lass, alas alack.
Knights:
Throughout the land no one may wed Ladies:
'Til Dauntless shares his marriage bed Ohhh?

Ladies:
The lonely spinster's life! Go? And get the prince a royal wife

(Dauntless, disconsolate, leaves)

All:
We have an opening for a princess, For a genuine, certified princess.
Ladies:
Tell us when you intend to end this dilemma we're in!
Knights:
None of the ladies give a fig for livin' in sin!
All:
We have an opening for a princess, for a beautiful, bona-fide princess.
Ladies:
Where's the dutiful knight who'll right all the wrong we've been done?
Knights:
None of the ladies are having any fun.
Ladies:
What to do?
Knights:
What to do?
Ladies:
What to do?
Knights:
What to do?
Ladies:
Pity the ladies-in-waiting.
Knights:
Pity the gentleman too.
Ladies:
Four,
Knights:
Six,
All:
Eight, ten, eleven, twelve contenders in a row..
Knights:
They came, they were tested

Ladies: Then swiftly requested to go?

Ladies: Knights:
Oh? Blow

?For a princess the trumpet, sound the fife!
For a genuine, certified princess.


Knights:
Go and get the prince a royal wife!
Ladies:
Tell us when you intend to send a girl who can pass
Knights:
None of the ladies are havin' any?
All:
No one is havin' any, No one is getting any younger, and it's been God knows how long since

Knights:
We have an opening for a princessLadies:
For a genuine, certified princessWe have an
Opening for a princess


All:
We have an opening for a princess who's good enough,
nice enough, sweet enough, smart enough,
rich enough for our poor prince!
