Disney Lied

Betrayal as old as time
Songs that make boys rhyme
Those bitter, sour cries
When you find that Disney lies

You were my princess,
could have been my queen
But that cloud covered castle
was a poison apple dream

So sleep (sleep)
beauty, forever
I never want to talk to you
Let the poison rot your veins
and no prince ever rescue
For this tired, little street rat
tried and tried (and tried)
Only to find out in the end
that lousy Disney lied

Nothing went as planned
My lamp held only sand
Bittersweet and strange
Finding you don’t change

You were my fairest,
my hollywood kiss
But that gallant white horse
was only a hot-aired wish

So sleep (sleep)
beauty, forever
I never want to talk to you
Let the poison rot your veins
and no prince ever rescue
For this tired little street rat
tried and tried (and tried)
Only to find out in the end
that Walter Disney lied

Not dashing, not daring
I’m more the beastly mutt
So the carpet crashed, burned
the slipper shattered, cut
The mermaid was grilled, filleted
There was no ever after
The only sound remaining now
Is that little teacup’s laughter

So sleep (sleep)
beauty, forever
I never want to talk to you
Let the poison rot your veins
and no prince ever rescue
For this tired little street rat
tried and tried and tried ( I really tried!)
Only to find out in the end
that fucking Disney lied
