The Lyrics

I saw you stop, I saw you stare
Could you believe? You didn't dare
Stuff like this don't happen, and words fail
But true to old folklore, you spy you a unicorn
The kind you hear of only in fairytales

Your doubts appear to be quickly fading
After all, you're a fair young maiden
The kind that unicorns always adore
As you step into the light
To better view this sight
You start to giggle and I start to neigh

I may be white, I may eat daisies
But I just might be the unicorn you're looking for
You want a ride? Well, I ain't lazy
So if you ride you'd better know
Just what's in store

I may be shy, I may be timid
And you may wonder how I can live here
But I can survive the woods all on my own
All the animals agree, and they just leave me be
They're smart enough to know to leave me alone

But there is one thing that I must fear
So promise me with conscience clear
To never let this happen to me
Cause I could not survive
I would surely lose my life
If I would succumb to man's captivity

I've got a horn, on top of my head
And it's perfect for dismounting
Those who'd do me wrong
My hooves are gold, my mane is wavy
And I can run around all day
Cause my legs are strong

I may be white, I may eat daisies
But I just might be the unicorn you're looking for
You want a ride? Well, I ain't lazy
So if you ride you'd better know
Just what's in store

Of course I'm white, I'm a unicorn
Of course I'm white, I'm a unicorn
Of course I'm white, I'm a unicorn
Of course I'm white, I'm a unicorn

A white unicorn
A white unicorn
A white unicorn
A white unicorn
A white unicorn
A white unicorn
