"THE PRINCESS"

Verse 1
[Narrator:] Once a little girl was lost in the woods,
Alone in a raging storm.
She prayed and prayed,
[Princess:] "Lord, if only I could
Find somewhere safe and warm."
[Narrator:] Then in the darkness a bright light she saw
Shine from a castle, through the trees.
She ran up and knocked on the huge wooden door,
And said,
[Princess:] "Can you help me, please?
I lost my way, can't you see?

Chorus 1
I'm a princess, a princess,
A soaking, wet, little princess."
[Narrator:] But with her scraggly hair
And her drenched little dress
She didn't look much like a princess,
Not much like a real princess.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, di, oh, day.

Verse 2
[Narrator:] Prince Charming opened the door and said,
[Prince:] "Oh my! Please come in from this terrible storm.
We'll give you some food and a nice soft bed.
We're happy you're safe and warm."
[Narrator:] She woke the next morning, so thankful inside.
She cooked a nice breakfast for all to eat.
The king thanked the cook, but the cook said,
[Cook:] "Not I! It was that girl so sweet.
[Narrator:] The king replied thoughtfully,

Chorus 2
[King:] "Hmmm, a princess? A princess?
She doesn't look much like a princess.
But from what I've seen, I am very impressed.
Maybe she is a real princess.
Maybe she's a real princess!"

[Narrator:] Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, di, oh, day.

Verse 3
[Narrator:] The sweet little princess worked hard all day
She was kind and encouraging too.
Finally that night, the good king did say,
[King:] "Well, what kind of princess are you?"
[Narrator:] She said,
[Princess:] "I'm a princess for God up above.
I believe He called me to show His love.
If you open the door of your heart to Him
Then to Heaven you can go."
[Narrator:] The king said,
[King:] "Now we all know …

Chorus 3
She's a princess, a princess,
A dear little, live little princess.
[Cast:] She showed us the way to God's happiness.
Now we all know she's a princess,
We know she's a real princess.

Bridge
[Narrator:] So if any of you would like to be
A prince or a princess in God's Kingdom
Show lots of love and work willingly.
He'll give you a crown when He comes.
You'll reign through the Millennium.

Chorus 4
You'll be a prince, or a princess,
A good little prince or a princess.
Lend a helping hand and do your best.
[Cast:] Everyone will know you're a princess,
A real little prince or princess.
[Narrator:] Everyone will know you're a princess,
A real little prince or princess.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, di, oh, day, oh.
