This C->D riff appears throughout the song, marked with *.
C DThere was a castle by a waterfall,
C DWith a pink and purple wall,
C GAnd a princess living there.
C DShe had no parents and was all alone,
C DShe got by on her own,

G C GAnd she liked it pretty well.
D
'Cause she never wore her socks,
GShe had a pet snake,
D She bought a red guitar,
EmAnd she ate a whole cake.
C DAnd there wasn't anybody there to tell her what to do,
D7 C ASo she did what she wanted to.

C D7 C DEverybody knew the story of the princess who saved herself.
C D(Princess who saved herself)
C D G(Princess who saved herself)

C DThere was a dragon with a pointy tail,
C DHe was bigger than a whale,
C G
And his breath was terrible.

*C DHe scared the princess when he came around,
C DTried to burn the castle down,
G C GBut she caught him by his tail.

DThen she tied him to a tree,
GSo the dragon couldn't fly,
DShe told him he was mean,
EmAnd it made the dragon cry.
C DWhen he finally apologized she offered him some tea,
D7 AHe 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 DThere was a witch who was an evil queen,
C DShe was wrinkled old and green,
C GAnd she hated everyone.
C D
She saw the princess in her silver gown,
C DPut the poison apple down,
G C D GAsked her where she bought her clothes.

D
So they got the witch a dress,
GPut some make-up on her face,
DThey started up a band,
EmAnd the dragon played the bass.

C D
Every Saturday they play until their fingertips are sore,
D7 C AMostly Math Rock and Cuddle Core.
C D7 C DAnd they call themselves The Kingdom Of The Princess Who Saved Herself.
C D(Princess who saved herself)
C D(Princess who saved herself)

C DThe princess who saved herself.
C D(Princess who saved herself)
C D G(Princess who saved herself)
