The Lyrics

Ever noticed how all fairy tale princesses marry some bloke called Prince Charming? Here's a guy who thinks monogamy is some kind of wood!
My name's Prince Charming
I love the ladies
Soon as I'm done with one
I'll get another one
I've married five of them
But it all fell apart
It wasn't all my fault
Just let me tell you

I got a greedy one
A servant girl, no fun
She was so pretty
But what a gold digger
So Cinderella
Stepmother needs you
Put on your crystal shoes
Take your mouse friends with you

She had hair for her stairs
And a voice like a bird's
But she started to mumble,
Forgot all the words
When I first climbed her tower
She was lovely and fair
Now Rapunzel's a bore
Won't you let down your hair?

She was pale
And a beauty
But her past was quite fruity
Before we were married
She'd had seven men
Snow White burst my bubble
Moaned of stepmother trouble
If she'd still had that apple
I'd have ate it myself

It's "Happy Ever After"
That sick joke, it makes me hurl
Prince Charming's going to find another girl

There were thorns
There were briers
I climbed up the spires
Saw a broad dressed in red there asleep on the bed
O Rose and her nagging
My patience was sagging
Sleeping Beauty? My arse!
Sadly that didn't last

It's "Happy Ever After"
That sick joke, it makes me hurl
Prince Charming's going to find another girl

I found a lovely girl
I gave her everything
Pure feather mattresses
When I first found her
I thought she was a babe
But oh how she complained
To find a single pea!
That over-sensitive girl!

It's "Happy Ever After"
That sick joke, it makes me hurl
Prince Charming's going to find another girl

Excellent parody--the lyrics are drastically different from the original and I didn't think it had the pacing until I sang it--then I see it is nearly perfect. Much better than the typical line-by-line rewrite.
