Another day inside my keep I get no rest, I get no sleep
‘cause when I start to count my sheep You come around
I draw my shades and lock my doors Still you come for what ain't yours
Like a hound dog on all fours You sniff around and around and around
You're gonna stay You're gonna stay You're gonna stay
Forever Forever

Man, I tell you sometimes being a fairytale creature sucks pine sap.
Life is disappointing, Woe is what I know. Outed by my nose, That's just how it goes,
For poor Pinocchio. Story of my life, Always doomed to fail. Cheated by a fox,
Swallowed by a whale. That's the story of my life, oh yeah, That's the story of my life.

Oh it's you What a terrific surprise Once upon a time This place was infested
Freaks on every corner I had them all arrested
Hey nonny-nonny-nonny-no
If you had a quirk, you didn't pass inspection
We all have our standards But I will have perfection
And so And so
Things are looking up here in Duloc Just take a look
The things I'm cooking up here in Duloc He likes to cook
A model that amazes A plan with seven phases
Bum bum bum bum bum Things are looking up here in Duloc
They're looking up In Duloc

Hey, hey, hey! You gotta let me go with you
You don't know what it's like to be considered a freak
Well maybe you do But that's why we gotta stick together
No, no, no! Don't speak, don't speak, don't speak
Just hear me out! I might surprise you I'll be a friend, when others despise you
Don't roll your eyes! Stop with the mopin' You need a pal! My calendar's open
I'll bring you soup, when you feel congested I'll bail you out, when you get arrested
I got your back, wha-wha-what, when things get scary And I'll shave it, when it gets hairy
Don't let me go Don't let me go Don't let me go You need me You need me
I'll treat you right, and never act shoddy If you kill a man, I'll hide the body
So what do you say? You're not responding I think we're bonding
Don't let me go Don't let me go Don't let me go You need me

But I know, he'll appear Though I seem a bit bipolar
And I'm a vandal now as well, hope he won't mind
I'm a find, I'm a catch And a very gifted bowler!
It won't be long now, I guarantee! Day number
Are you there god? It's me Fiona It's me Fiona!
Now I know, he'll appear Cause there are rules and there are strictures
I believe the storybooks I read by candlelight My white knight, my knight and his steed
Will look just like these pictures! It won't be long now, I guarantee!
Day number twenty three
Day number nine fifty-eight
Day number eight thousand, four hundred and, twenty three

And Ogre always hides, an Ogre's fate is known
And Ogre always stays in the dark and all alone
So yes I'd be a hero, and if my wish was granted
Llife would be enchanted, or so the stories say.
Of course I'd be a hero, and I would scale a tower
And save a hot-house flower, and carry her away
But standing guard would be a beast, I'd somehow over whelm it,
I'd get the girl, I'd take my breath, and I'd remove my helmet.
We'd stand and stare, we'd speak of love, we'd feel the stars ascending
We'd share a kiss, I'd find my destiny
I'd have a hero's ending, a perfect happy ending.
That's how it would be A big bright beautiful world But not for me.
