The Lyrics

Dressed in chintz to meet a prince
With glassy shoes like these on
The Royal Ball's on in the hall
Who needs a better reason
To eat hors d'oeuvre, the sort they serve
With little bits of cheese on
Here's the chance for a smoochy dance
With a lovely handsome prince

The chiming bell ends the fairy spell
The glamour, it shortly will end
Go back home again, was it all in vain
And don't go to the palace anymore.
Two minutes to midnight
See magic's end approach
Two minutes to midnight
Return the pumpkin from the coach

The footmen shout "Cinderella's out"
'fore they turn back to lizards
The horse device reverts to mice
And the coachman was a rat - Yeah
As the reason for the prince's interest streaks like a stripper
She runs out of the palace, and leaves a little slipper


The prince he swears whoever wears
This little glassy shoe
Will be his bride - step-sisters cry
He puts the slipper right on you.
At the fairy-tale wedding, the kingdom rings with laugter
And, unlike real-life princes, live happ'ly ever after

This is what I like about you. You're not afraid to wander into new territories, funny or not. I don't know the original song, but I'm sure the joke is that Iron Maiden would be horrified at the sweet fairy tale you've turned it into.

Rick: Dickinsson and Harris (and probably the rest of the band too) are pretty intellectual guys. With songs about Alexander the great, the Dune book, the Quest For Fire movie, the American civil war, the mythological flight of Icarus and Egyptology etc this one would not be strange in their catalouge. Except for the last verse and especially the last two lines it could go on any Maiden album. IMHO.
Phil, did you start sketching this about medival stuff with the hope that I would go with Maiden in the final? ;-)

Okay, I stand corrected. I haven't been intimate with that Maiden. I incorrectly assumed they were another "heavy" band that takes themselves too seriously.

Rick: Im just thinking "Manowar" when I see your comment. Signing contracts with their own blood etc :-)
Unfortunately none of their songs are known well enough for a parody I guess. (And I gave'em up years ago anyway). Doing a MP lumberjack number on them could be hilarious though. :-)

It would be interesting to find out what Harris, Dickinson et al thought about the above... they are a surprisingly intellectual lot, as Peter said: when the "Somewhere In Time" album came out, the Kerrang reviewer said it was like revising for your O-Levels (literary references to Alan Sillitoe and Heinlein; plus the historical chronology that is Alexander the Great). I've always thought that musically and lyrically, Maiden were way ahead of everyone else in the genre, not to mention pretty much everyone else, full stop.
