Not Ready to Be a Princess

Lyrics from Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess


Everything seems crazy big
And I'm feeling unsteady
Mom says I'll be just fine
But I don't think I'm ready

New school, new friends, new family
And a ball where they want me to dance
I'm just a little girl from a small, small town
In this world I don't stand a chance

I'm not ready to be a princess
I don't have what it takes
I'm too short for gowns
I look bad in crowns
And I'm gonna make a bajillion mistakes

I'm too average to be a princess
I respectfully refuse
I don't know the rules
I don't want the jewels
And these feet were made for comfortable shoes

Shelves bursting with trinkets
That I'm afraid to touch
Fancy toys and ginormous pillows
It's all much too much
Too much!

I'm not ready to be a princess
One look, and that seems clear
Cancel my debut
Keep your royal crew
And if I ever find Mom's room
I'm outta here

Not a noble name
Even my wave is lame

I'm not ready
To be a princess
