Princess's Lament (I'm so Delicate)
  by Richard Ely

I'm too pure for chocolate, it addles my brain
Vanilla's much too potent, I only eat plain
I'm too shy to kiss you, too shy to talk
Much too shy to meet you and go for a walk

'Cause I'm so delicate
I'm very, very delicate
I'm not just being difficult for the hell of it
If I met a wicked witch I would tell her that
I'd rather fall asleep 'til infinity
I don't want no handsome prince to lay his lips on me
'Cause I'm so delicate
Very, very delicate

I'm so very tender I bruise and I bleed
I'm just like that princess who slept on a pea 
Winter makes me tremble, fall makes me sad
The burning summer sun drives me mad

[Repeat 1st chorus]

Bridge:
I stayed close to Mama when I was a child
I was much too fragile for anything wild
Now I am grown up with so many fears
Too bad I'm allergic to my own tears

I save my affections for one true love
I wear my inhibitions like a body glove
Sometimes in the springtime I long for a fling
If not for this sore throat, I would sing

But I'm so delicate
I'm very, very delicate
I'm not just being difficult for the hell of it
If I met a wicked witch I would tell her that
I'd rather be a frog with a spell on it
I don't want to be a swan 'cause it feels like 
It's much too delicate
Very, very delicate
I'm very, very delicate...
