I come from a land far far away
where every home was a palace and dust was kept at bay
no one in this land knew a broom or a mop
since invisible elves trailed inhabitants non-stop
when I came of age to marry
my parents threw a ball
and invited all the suitors to come make a call
to the dance floor they led me
to woo me with their moves
but sadly though
not one of them could groove
my parents said, "who cares if they can't dance... why they're rich! give them a chance!
If you don't choose a prince tonight you'll be dancing on dirty floors all day and all night!
"There are no little elves in other strange lands
you will have to work hard and use your own hands."
but to me it mattered most that my partner could dance,
since I loved it so much
I had to take a chance
when the guests left the ball
I felt really small
so I went to my room to meditate on it all...
"perhaps they're right.. nobody's perfect.. do I have a choice? is it all really worth it?"
I turned on the TV to distract myself and saw
the most beautiful floor
I was in absolute awe
Rows of multi-colored squares
that pulsed with bright lights
next entered a prince
that was all dressed in white
"RICH OR POOR!" I said to myself
"I'd rather marry this prince more than have wealth."
I watched until the end to find out where he could be
I learned he danced Saturday nights in New York City
So off I went and yes I did find my prince
At something called a DISCO
and never looked back since
My parents were right
I have had to work hard
To keep my floors clean with my hands and no car
My prince also worked hard
we had no time to dance
but lived happily ever after
in our own made up trance
Yes I was sad at times but I had no regrets
Instead I wanted to help bring the elves to the rest
Fairy god-mother I prayed
please show me the way
to help people in all lands
keep dust easily at bay
She flew in on a broom
coming in with a thrust...
be your own elf with these slippers
and just Dance While You Dust!
This invention is dedicated to all the Cinderellas and Cinderfellas out there.
I can't wait to start dancing and dusting with you and
La Cenicienta LOVES YOU
